Wednesday, January 20th, 2010

While this TV show won’t be live, there will be many interested viewers that will like to catch a program that shows the entire cool up and coming product line up that will be launching from the technology sector at some point in the near future. The recent convention that was held in Las Vegas in the first week of January has been recorded and highlights will be aired on a special TV program that highlights the newest technology that everyone wants to have and know about!

The CES show in Las Vegas was a great big hit this year with the largest attendance in visitors as well as exhibitors as well. Many big names in the tech industry were there to introduce their newest and coolest inventions. Everything seems to be smaller and thinner than ever before. There were many new innovations that no one could ever even imagine and there were many outstanding items that were much safer for the environment and would last longer as well showing a focus to everything green.

Las Vegas was a great destination for this event as the show has been held in this location for several years in a row. The city was very accommodating to those that were visiting as there was much to do even when they were not at the show. The city also had something new to brag about that will actually be featured in the show. The new city center will also be a highlight in the TV program that airs sometime next month. Make sure to catch it when you can.

Vegas Gets Some Serious Rainy Weather

Monday, January 18th, 2010

Well it is a day of celebration for many. Today in Las Vegas and throughout the rest of the US is Martin Luther King day and the annual parade that is scheduled on this day for the last 28 years is likely to be a little damp to say the least. Las Vegas and the surrounding areas are experiencing and expecting some serious rain to move through the city for the duration of the day and perhaps the rest of the week as well.

The parade is scheduled to go on as planned but those planning to attend should come with their umbrellas handy or perhaps opt for waiting until next year’s parade as it is likely to happen yet another year. Many those that had outdoor activities such as golfing and other things of that sort are also urged to reschedule and wait for better weather as the amount of rain coming in is rumoured to be on the heavier side.

There are even some areas of Vegas that are expecting some snowfall which isn’t that common for Vegas but isn’t so unexpected at this time due to the changing climate! There is a total of 1 to 3 inches that are expected to accumulate from the rainfall and one to three feet of snowfall where the snow is supposed to fall near the mountains.

Casinos should be happy about the news of the bad weather because while new guests won’t be as eager to arrive those guests that are already there will be happier to stay inside then spend time anywhere in the rainy outdoors which means casinos can see themselves turning a bit of a profit.
