Oh, the weather outside is still frightful, especially with the recent nor’easter that’s sweeping through; nevertheless, college students across the country are preparing to head back to school after a long winter break. In the coming weeks, college campuses will reopen and Spring semester classes will begin. Your children may not miss you right away because let’s face it, spending weeks with your family during the college years is tough on any student. After a while though, they’ll yearn to see your face, and with an empty nest, you’ll yearn to see theirs, too.
How do you keep in touch with the kids when they’re 30 or 3,000 miles away? Phone? Close. Video calling on the Internet? Getting warmer. Video calling from your HDTV? Bingo! With Cisco ūmi you can check in on your future scholars by video calling them on your living room TV. If they’re out studying at the library or, dare we say, at a party, you can just leave them a video message and they can call you back later. (Note – this is a perfect way to embarrass them if they watch the message with friends in the room!)

A wooden “house” is not something you may ordinarily see on the show floor at the Consumer Electronics Show, and that is only ONE of the reasons that crowds lined up to hear about the MARLEY audio electronics line.
The MARLEY audio electronics line is designed using eco-friendly and recycled material. There are three different lines – Jammin’, Freedom, and Destiny. The booth contained dozens of prototypes for exhibitors to check out and including earbuds, headphones, docking stations, speakers and boom boxes ranging from $29.99 to $499.99.
I knew this was MY favorite booth at CES 2011 as soon as I heard that a portion of the MARLEY audio electronics proceeds go to 1Love.org-supported charities that empower youth, protect our planet and encourage global peace.
Check out this exclusive interview I did with Bob Marley’s grandson from the show floor!

Two words…..Cisco ūmi!
We were ecstatic to have the opportunity to bring our magician, Jeff, LIVE over Cisco ūmi from Santa Monica to the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas so he could show off his magic tricks. Crowds of people huddled around to get on camera and show off their Exhibitor passes so that Jeff could have the opportunity to personalize their ”magical” experience with ūmi for the first time.
It was amazing to see the reaction on people’s faces as soon as they saw ūmi. Many of them thought that we were playing a video of magic tricks on our HD Television, until Jeff would comment on what folks were wearing or would take a photo of the crowd at CES who were anxiously waiting to see what Jeff had in store for them.
Check out the reaction of one of the exhibitor’s at CES 2011 as he experienced his first a ūmi magic trick experience from over 300 miles away.
