Covering CES with Google: A Chromebook, YouTube, and the Moto X

As Editor of a growing technology blog, the International Consumer Electronics Show is the hallmark of conventions to attend for proper news coverage. Every major electronics manufacturer struts their hot new tech for the coming year, and thousands of bloggers and industry reps come to be sold and speculate on it. So I finally went. I applied for my press pass in December, bought a plane ticket to Vegas (with miles, thankfully), and booked a hotel room at the Riviera  just blocks from the Las Vegas Convention Center.

So How Did we Cover it?

First off, we have to thank AT&T for their gracious hospitality, offering us us a Netgear UNITE Pro Mobile Hot Spot for wireless capabilities while covering CES 2014. This little device packs a 4020 mAh battery, offering 16-hours of 4G speed WiFi and/or smartphone charging known as Battery Boost. It also can connect up to 15 devices to the web. You turn it on, and you’re online in seconds. That’s it. This little monster got the 4G LTE speeds that were clutch during coverage.
