Once again today, comic-con released some tickets, this time 1000. The process wasn’t too bad, instead of going to the registration site (Epic), which was obviously being crushed under the strain of the original attempts to open up the ticket purchasing process. So seemingly comic-con went with Ticketleap.com, a pretty well known ticket servicer of the likes of ticketmaster or ticketfly. A service that processes and handles ticketing for many different venues and organizations. Generally these sites are built to with hold the strain of 50,000 Beiber fans trying to buy tickets all at the same time. Traffic comes in bursts and swells and they are meant to handle it.
While we won’t be at CES 2011 (sadly we have to work), we will be covering as much “nerd appropriate” content as we possibly can.
What is CES?
Hopefully if you’re reading this site you know that CES is the Consumer Electronics Show. It is a yearly convention that focuses on, you guessed it, consumer electronics!
Some things to look forward to at this year’s CES.
- Nerds from all over the world hiring Vegas “escorts” to play CODBLOPS and Starcraft 2.
- Capcom showing us a bevy of new stuff, including new Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 info.
- Amazing new tech that will be available in the very near future Jetpacks… jetpacks…
- Earth Wind and Fire (yes they’re playing the event)
Also, if you’re interested in what’s happening as it’s happening, G4-TV will be covering the event live. They were nice enough to do this so that those of us that can’t make it to Vegas can still enjoy the convention.
“AOTS Live From CES ‘11″ airs Thursday, January 6th at 7PM ET / PT, and will take you deep inside the gadget and tech fest. G4 hosts Kevin Pereira and Morgan Webb are just the experts you need to decipher today’s hottest technology, and future-gimcrack gurus Chris Hardwick and Dave Mathews will be there too, as well as newly ordained co-host of Attack of the Show! Candace Bailey. Our rogues-gallery of cut-up and experts will provide a personal tour of everything hot and happening at the big show.
They will also have a live feed on G4TV.com for those of you that have a computer at your desk and want to pretend to be working.
