    Hey, Roger Cheng, executive editor for news, on my smartphone. Having some issues. Please be patient.

    We sat down a few minutes at the LVH theater. Spotlights are moving around like crazy, and the room is the familiar purple Yahoo hue.
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2014 8:53:26 PM
    Okay, I've successfully logged on. Sorry, Verizon Wireless has been finicky for me at this show.
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2014 8:54:13 PM
    We're in the main auditorium at the Las Vegas Hilton, right by the convention center.
  • Kent German 1/7/2014 8:54:16 PM
    Welcome to Roger and Lynn, our live blogging masters. They'll bring you the keynote as it happens.
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2014 8:54:46 PM
    There's a giant screen with the Yahoo logo, awash in purple background.
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2014 8:54:56 PM
    Above the screen are a number of moving spotlights, giving us all mad lens flare.
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2014 8:56:07 PM
    There was a massive line for this keynote, winding from the auditorium's front doors through the lobby and casino area, right to the southern end of the hotel.
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2014 8:56:44 PM
    Fortunately, there was a slightly shorter line for press, which is how we got in so early.
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2014 8:57:05 PM
    As you can see, Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer draws a crowd.
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2014 8:58:00 PM
    And why wouldn't she? In the past year or so, she's shaken up the company, made a slew of acquisitions, and tried to energize the stodgy Internet company.
