Stevio...LA LA Lovin' It?

I'm British-born Chinese from Bristol, UK. I’m LA-based. I’m a hip hop aficionado. After 15 years in London I moved to LA to pursue a new career and outlook on life.

Back in the 80s I was a DJ. In the 90s I contributed to the world's first street style exhibition at London's Victoria & Albert Museum. In 2011, I had my first interviews published. Today, I’m keeping busy with music, art, photos and writing.

CES 08 is here...

These girls of CES look like they're built in China, but they're as American as, uh...MP3 and 1080p (I have no idea if that's right, but it sounds cool ;) ) even if the brands that they work for are Taiwanese (Creative) and Japanese (Sony Electronics).

At this year's show, I was registered as "qualified press" (is there such a thing as "unqualified press"?) courtesy of Yankee Group. And with that I got a few extras for my troubles (CES backpack anyone?) But, it was a tiring trip 'cause I drove the 270 miles from LA to accommodate a colleague from work. Urgh! Folks, that drive takes 4 1/2 hours *each way* and I was driving solo 'cause the dude didn't have a US license yet! Crap! Man, cruise control helped me stay out of trouble with the law....set it for 77 mph and c-r-u-i-s-e!

New gadgets What were the highlights for me, apart from the young ladies? Hmmm. Sony's OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) TVs that are 3mm thin?! Testing all those mobile phones? Or seeing the Ion U Record analog to digital converter gadgets (made by Numark, UK)?
