The Consumer Electronics Show gets porn, CTIA gets trash.
As attendees poured into the convention hall this morning with the kick-off of CTIA Wireless, we learned we were sharing the facility with Waste Expo 2006. I guess that’s how it is — CES gets to share the convention center with adult entertainment, and CTIA is sharing it with waste.
I heard last year’s highlight of Waste Expo was a keynote by Dr. Ruth. I wonder if they can beat Mickey Mouse, which made an appearance on stage during the keynote today by Steve Wadsworth, president of the Walt Disney Internet Group.
Wadsworth unveiled the new wireless service by Disney, called Disney Mobile. To help launch the new product, which includes a lot of parental controls to help parents monitor their children, Mickey came out on stage and helped bring out a cell phone nearly twice his size.
In real life, Wadsworth promised, the cell phones are smaller.
