Eastwick client Tzero got more than it could have hoped for at CES when Bill Gates dropped by the Tzero booth and bumped into Rachel Rosmarin of Forbes, who was already there for an interview with Tzero SVP Dan Karr. Writes Rosmarin:
“Gates was obviously looking for [Karr]. Gates has limited time on the show floor; he must make a short list of top visits and stick to it. That he chose Tzero implies Gates is curious about the potential of Ultra Wideband technology to network the home—perhaps in a future version of Windows Media Center PCs? Karr wouldn't tell me exactly what Gates wanted to know, saying only that Microsoft wanted to demonstrate a piece of software to Tzero at a later date.”
Interest in Tzero’s ultra wideband-based wireless chipset for distributing HD video throughout the home is rocketing because, as Rosmarin says, “consumers are clamoring for wirelessly-networked home theater setups.” Other bloggers have taken notice too, including Engadget, Bloggy Geek, and SmallNetBuilder.

Also at CES, Eastwick client Seagate is sponsoring Podtech’s Bloghaus CES, a 24x7 haven for CES bloggers, complete with a podcasting station, lots of food, and a gaming room. Kudos to Seagate for understanding the key role bloggers are playing at this year’s event.
