    The back of each seat has an Intel fanny pack. Inside, a pair of "touch screen" gloves.

    I went to CES 2013 and all I got was this Intel fanny pack.

    I think we need to have some sort of reader Photoshop contest with that pic of Dan.
  • Josh Lowensohn 1/7/2013 8:46:37 PM
    We'll need to talk to the lawyers about that first, of course.
  • Rich Brown 1/7/2013 8:46:50 PM
    Hi, everyone.
  • josh.miller 1/7/2013 8:47:42 PM

    The media streams in.

    The room is now filling up with tons of folks as you can see from Josh's lovely pic.

    Intel's announcer telling everyone to sit down so they can start things on time. 10 minutes to go now.
  • Rich Brown 1/7/2013 8:50:05 PM
    Creepy voice over the PA in here. "Welcome everyone, we are pleased to see you..." Feels like we're being watched.

    Just a few more minutes to go here folks, then we're gonna go deep into chips.

    Packed house

  • Josh Lowensohn 1/7/2013 8:57:44 PM
    So in case it wasn't clear from these pictures, Intel's got a boatload of stuff up on stage including a wall of nearly 20 ultrabooks, and a dozen tablets along with a handful of smartphones.

    lights are down
  • Josh Lowensohn 1/7/2013 9:00:07 PM
    And we're starting out with a video. From back in November 1913.

    For a preview of what to expect, read CNET's rundown of Intel's "Bay Trail" tech, not to be confused with the delightful outdoor activity.

    If you recall, last year's press conference started with a guy doing a solo dance routine.
  • josh.miller 1/7/2013 9:00:57 PM
  • Josh Lowensohn 1/7/2013 9:00:59 PM
    All about football, Notre Dame vs. Army, with the announcer talking up the use of the forward pass changing the history of football.
  • Josh Lowensohn 1/7/2013 9:01:20 PM
    "This was a game changer, and so are these..." the announcer says. Intel's next-gen chips.
  • josh.miller 1/7/2013 9:01:30 PM
  • Josh Lowensohn 1/7/2013 9:01:51 PM
    And a virtual football just exploded the screen. Not really though.

    Mike Bell, VP for Intel's Mobile and Communications Group.

  • Rich Brown 1/7/2013 9:02:30 PM
    Intel will spend a lot of time talking about chip specs and bring their tech to mobile devices. Expect to also hear about "experiences."
  • Rich Brown 1/7/2013 9:02:54 PM
    First up, phones.
  • Josh Lowensohn 1/7/2013 9:02:59 PM
    Bell says the company is starting to deliver on its promise to bring its architecture across its entire product line, something he says is Intel's advantage.

    First on tap: phones.
