>> Now from the number 1 on air and online information source for the digital age.
>> Hi I'm Molly Wood and welcome to the Buzz Report CES 2009 Edition. This week we've got a CES Ghost Town, celebrity sightings galore and high fashion. Let's get started with the gadget of the week. The gadget of the week is my HP Mini 1000 Vivian Tam Edition Netbook which I'm loving at CES because it's so light and easy to carry around; so I brought her to visit her friends. What's that Viv? You really want a matching mouse? Well I really want those red shoes. Let's see if we can talk to someone about that. And now for the news. First up, I've discovered the most beautiful booth at CES. I think I'm moving in. You probably also heard that Palm completely resurrected its company by announcing an amazing looking smart phone, the Palm Pre as well as a web operating system. If they can get that thing out the door, I think they've got a winner on their hands. Also LG took the show by storm by announcing a watch phone. It was interesting because hardly anyone got to touch it; nevertheless everyone seemed to think it was either ridiculous or super awesome or some combination of the two. And of course the economy dominated CES 2009 with talk of a smaller show, fewer attendees, and frankly we all just thought that the cab lines were way shorter and that was a good thing. But the biggest news at CES is always the famous people. In fact I myself got a celebrity interview. Very excited to be standing here with a truly geeky comedian and of course our favorite game show host, Drew Carey.
>> Drew: Hi. I'm here to meet girls.
>> Molly: Oh you are in the wrong place. They don't have that many girls here.
>> Drew: I noticed that.
>> Molly: Did no one tell you?
>> Drew: Yeah this is like unbelievable; it's really funny.
>> Molly: Yeah no there's never a line for the woman's room.
>> Drew: No, never.
>> Molly: It's nice.
>> Drew: Yeah, yeah.
>> Molly: But no I walked around during the floor show earlier; you're legitimate--you are actually geeky in a good way.
>> Drew: Yeah, yeah I am. I have friends that are like worse than I am.
>> Molly: Have you always been sort of interested in technology?
>> Drew: Yeah because I like stuff that makes my life easier. Buying a gadget for a gadget's sake, not really, but if it makes my life easier then yeah I'd like to have it; or if it works better than what I had before, maybe I won't have it but it's all about practicality with me. It has to have a practical purpose. That's why I wasn't so big on the launch phone.
>> Molly: Right I can understand that. Have you seen anything here that you think is going to be a prize on the Price is Right in the future?
>> Drew: A lot of things.
>> Molly: Really?
>> Drew: Yeah a lot of things.
>> Molly: Anything you can tell us about?
>> Drew: Even the little gadgety thing. Well one we actually went by and we actually saw a price we had. There are a couple of games where we had like little kind of gadgety things that are like not that expensive. You know like for Kenco [assumed spelling] or something like that and clip hangers. So we had one that was on clip hangers, I think it was on clip hangers, it was a little remote control car thing that you could put beverages in--it was a beverage holder. She could use her remote to like send cans of coke and stuff around the house or cans or Pepsi or beer or whatever you have. I remember on the air saying how cool it was like wow that's a cool thing. So we'll probably still be giving that away, the remote control stuff; a lot of the big screen TV's; we give away a lot of big screen TV's. I'd love to give away some of the 3D stuff when we can get our hands on it.
>> Molly: Well now you know. You should get on the Price is Right because they are not messing around.
>> Drew: Oh lately we're giving away the greatest prizes ever.
>> Molly: Well thank you very much. Have a great time at the show.
>> Drew: I appreciate it. Thank you. It was a pleasure hanging out here.
>> Molly: Come by and see us any time.
>> Drew: Okay thanks.
>> Molly: It was really good to meet you.
>> Drew: See ya.
>> Molly: For cnet.com see you at CES 2009 Molly Wood, Drew Carey kicking it. Now there's been a lot of talk this year about how CES is a lot smaller because of the economy, and I have to say I'm pretty sure it's true because we've been walking around trying to find this booth and it's supposed to be right here; but this whole area is gone. I think I saw a tumbleweed.
>> Molly: Hey look an award. Speaking of awards, the Buzz Report was nominated for one of the first ever Global Media awards put on by the Consumer Electronics Association and the Academy of Arts and Sciences, the Emmy people. It was all really exciting until we found out that we were nominated alongside the Yes We Can video by Will.I.Am. ^M00:04:21 [ Music ] ^M00:04:31
>> Molly: See what we're up against? Yes he won but we didn't come away empty-handed. And another CES is in the can. I'm hoping for an even smaller show next year. I'm Molly Wood and this has been the Buzz Report. Thanks for watching. [ Music ]
>> Molly: I could actually fall asleep right here. I kind of want to live here. Okay go away. I'm sleep.
