Engadget to be the Official CES Blog Partner
Gadget blog Engadget, a part of AOL’s portfolio under the Weblogs Inc. brand, is apparently going to be the official CES blog, according to TechCrunch. The obvious contender for the partnership, which is a first for CES, would be Gizmodo, but after Richard Blakeley’s stunt last year, where he used TV-B-Gone to turn off exhibitor’s TV sets, I reckon the CES people would rather not have said Gawker Media blog there at all…
This is a great recognition for Engadget, so congratulations to them! CES is due on January 8-11, 2009.
