CES 2007 in Review: Neek Talkers Make Yahoo! News


Neek Talk teen reporters Elizabeth, Sarah, and Kimberly caught the attention of AP reporter and photographer Damian Dovarganes at CES 2007 while using their Tablet PCs and UMPCs in line for Bill Gate’s keynote address. Yahoo! News picked up some of his photos. These teens have grown up with state-of-the-art PCs and electronics shows. I appreciate their explanation of Neek: Where the line between Geek and Nerd is especially thin . None of them attend a school that permits mobile PCs on campus.
