    You just can't...

  • Brian Bennett 4/29/2014 3:07:42 PM
    Yes, that is indeed a big hat man! Wow!
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:08:04 PM
    Williams talking about tech can expand music and turn it more interactive.

    I'm still not hearing how much better the audio is supposed to sound. That's what I really want to know.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:08:52 PM
    So going back to that car on the sidelines...I'm guessing no connected car announcement. Is it literally a prop? Sad.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:09:15 PM
    Hesse: We expect the HTC One M8 Harmon Karon to usher a new era of audio tech. It's available on May 9.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:09:43 PM
    This revolution was made possibly by the cooperation of four diverse businesses led by four diverse CEOs, he says. We share a common bond, a passion for music.

  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:09:55 PM
    That is a mouthful.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:10:08 PM
    And with that, they pulled off the black drape and there's the phone.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:10:28 PM
    It has a black back and champagne highlights on the front.
  • Brian Bennett 4/29/2014 3:10:29 PM
    The HTC One M8 Harmon Kardon Edition unveiled!
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:10:45 PM
    HTC's Chou, notably, has the back of the phone to the camera, so you can see his logo (of course).
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:10:54 PM
    And "Happy" plays while the photo op occurs.
  • Brian Bennett 4/29/2014 3:11:15 PM
    Can't tell if it has the brushed metal finish the other M8's have.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:11:21 PM
    With that, the lights dim.
  • sarahtew 4/29/2014 3:11:32 PM
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:11:45 PM
    Violinist Miri Ben-Airi now takes the stage to some thumping music.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:12:01 PM
    I always wonder how much these artists get paid to perform at these events.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:12:16 PM
    And how they feel...playing to a crowd of gadget-obsessed geeks and bloggers.
  • Brian Bennett 4/29/2014 3:12:54 PM
    Okay, now I believe I've seen everything....funky violin playing against hip hop beats.
  • sarahtew 4/29/2014 3:12:59 PM
  • sarahtew 4/29/2014 3:13:16 PM
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:14:04 PM
    She's still playing, by the way. With all the ambient music, I can't tell if she's actually playing or just mimicking.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:14:21 PM
    I'll give her the benefit of the doubt and assume she's playing.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:14:34 PM
    Polite applause after she finishes.
  • sarahtew 4/29/2014 3:14:40 PM
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:15:06 PM
    Ben-Airi says this announcement makes history, and she thanks all four companies for making it possible for people to listen to music the way we record it.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:15:13 PM
    They're really hitting that theme hard.
  • Brian Bennett 4/29/2014 3:15:34 PM
    OK, hands-on time has begun!
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:15:34 PM
    Okay, with that the event is wrapped up.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 3:16:25 PM
