To get us started in planning our coverage on the blog in text, photos, and in video, we thought it might be cool to hear from you, our audience. So we asked BB commenters and peeps who follow us on Twitter -- what do you hope or expect to see more of, or less of, at the world's largest electronics show this year. What exactly do you want us to bring home from CES?
In this episode of BBtv, we share your responses. They include:

â™¦ mobile gaming! laptops and mobile devices that allow me to get my game on out in the world.
â™¦ What notebooks or a/v devices are attendees themselves using on the show floor?
â™¦ Do not cover gadgets at all. Cats are better than gadgets. Also, they are an emergency food source during times of economic crisis.
