A mobile CES moment in the sky

Sometimes the plane rides to and from CES are nearly as interesting as the show itself.

On the flight home last night, I sat between a guy who recently left Clearwire for a San Francisco startup and a woman from Microsoft’s mobile devices group who demonstrated the Windows Live mobile search client at the show.

Before the crew told us to shut off our devices, she had loaded the client onto the HTC Tilt I’d brought to take photos and video and demonstrated its voice search capabilities, pulling up a list of Mexican restaurants in Seattle.

The three of us yacked about digital broadcasting, video services, DRM, the iPhone and other gadgets until we fell asleep, probably somewhere over southern Oregon.
