On the show floor(South Hall #36232) - We’ll have a great demo of the Beta & the Boxee Box at the D-Link booth.

Press Events
- In an effort to really get our money’s worth out of our press guy (me), we’ll be attending every major press event at CES this year. Whether it’s CES Unveiled (Jan 5th), The Digital Experience with Pepcom (Jan 6th), Lunch at Piero’s 1 (7th), Showstoppers (7th), or Lunch at Piero’s 2 (8th) I will be there with my requisite 13 items of flare and a Boxee Box. Come by and I’ll tell you all about what we’re releasing at the show and our plans for the future. Massages and stiff drinks are welcome.

If you’ve never been to CES before, our friend Jeremy Toeman does a good wrap-up of how to prep for the show for booth staff, but it also works for attendees.

Awards

Now that we have a gadget with Boxee on it we’re elegible for even more awards this year. Some are editor’s choices like the CNet Best in Show and G4′s Best of the Best while others require audience participation like Last Gadget Standing (LGS). Last year LGS organizer Robin Raskin shot down my application for Boxee because “we weren’t a gadget.” Pshaw! “We’ll be back next year,” I told her.

Well Robin, it’s 2010 and we’re ready. The Boxee Box has already advanced to the final round and we need your help ensuring its triumph.
Check out the competitors and send your votes Boxee’s way!

If you can’t make it out to CES, don’t worry, we’ll be sharing all the latest and greatest right here on the blog so stay tuned!

    Wow - the Microvision projector is a great product, but they are clearly stuffing the ballot box somehow.

    Andrew,

    We'll be watching the web for the Lunch at Piero's video coverage of the Boxee table at that event. And the TWIT Live at CES video coverage of Showstoppers and Pepcom.

    Who knows, maybe Boxee can team up with the Lunch at team for a Boxee CES Channel….

    Should be fun !

    When will the beta go public? Sometime today right?

  6. [...] Stay tuned to the blog for posts later in the week detailing more hardware details about the Boxee Box by D-Link, more content partners, and another trick or two up our sleeve. If you’re at the show, make sure to meet us on the show floor or at any of the other press events at the show. [...]
