Hello, everyone. Welcome to CNET's live blog of Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer's keynote!
This is the second keynote here on the first days that the CES show floor is open.
@Dunks: They keynote starts at 1:00 p.m. PT.
Bringing you the keynote will be CNET's Roger Cheng and Lynn La along with Sarah Tew on photos. You can follow Roger and Lynn on Twitter at @RogerWCheng and @lynnlaaa.
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.
Okay, I've successfully logged on. Sorry, Verizon Wireless has been finicky for me at this show.
We're in the main auditorium at the Las Vegas Hilton, right by the convention center.
Welcome to Roger and Lynn, our live blogging masters. They'll bring you the keynote as it happens.
There's a giant screen with the Yahoo logo, awash in purple background.
Above the screen are a number of moving spotlights, giving us all mad lens flare.
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.
Fortunately, there was a slightly shorter line for press, which is how we got in so early.
As you can see, Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer draws a crowd.
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.
At the same time, she's seen her company's stock rise, although that's partially because of the value of Yahoo's assets overseas.
The Yahoo e-mail redesign on the other hand....
Okay, we're about two minutes away.
Hmm...looks like the capacity of the crowd is killing nearly all wireless connections. Sprint and AT&T not doing so well either.
The redesign and subsequent bugs with Yahoo Mail was certainly a big controversy. I don't know if she will address it at her keynote though.
Unfortunately, these keynotes are almost always scripted, and will likely go over some general topic. But who knows? Maybe she has some news to share.
The bottom level of the auditorium is full...people are now filling the upper balcony seats.
They appear to be running a bit late so please stick with us.
WiFi and data are spotty here so apologies ahead if things get patchy
@Waites Right now Yahoo is at $40.91, but the market is closed for the day.
Okay, lights are dimmed, Here we go!
CES represents all aspects of the tech ecosystem, he says.
