CES 2013 Preview: In Haiku

CES previews can be so boring. Here's a little something for those of us who are burned out on smart appliances, big TVs, connected cars and predictions for the new year.


CES 2013 preview: in haiku

Some things never change and CES is one of them. CES 2013 will be much like CES 2012 and CES 2005 except people will have less hair, and Microsoft won’t be around.

This will be my 20th CES. What started as a few nostalgic haikus on Facebook somehow blossomed into this: a preview of this year’s event ... in haiku.

It starts with this:

Moisturizer? Check.
Hand sanitizer? That too.
Aspirin? Got it.

The rest can be found in the slideshow. Warning, Gary Shapiro and PR people are all fair game.

Catch our illustrated CES 2013 haikus in the slideshow.
Feel free to add your own in the comments section below.

Send me the bag
I need to carry swag
Love CES.

I am sure this is not a haiku as I suck at them but I always enjoy yours!

No way, Avi. I should’ve specified: first GOOD comment with proper syllables will get the bag.

CES would suck
without the official bag
but I’ll have Julie’s.

Actually, I won’t be there, so I guess someone else will get it, but I couldn’t resist.

Have a great time!
