I sometimes envy professional bloggers who get journalist credentials for free admittance, goodie bags and private screenings for events like CES. Then I read the experience of Jason Dunn of PocketPC Thoughts, ranging from his Kafkaesque experience with the Canadian version of TSA to the stomach flu from hell at 2 am in his Las Vegas hotel room. His article is entertaining, though I suspect this is due to retrospect, not how he felt at the time.
Now I feel better for missing CES. I hope Jason feels better too.
