This blog aims to bring the latest news and colour from the Consumer Electronics Show 2007, the world's largest technology conference.
BBC News journalists will be blogging about ground-breaking products, discussing emerging themes and encouraging your involvement.
Your guides to the event in Las Vegas include:
BBC News Technology correspondent Rory Cellan-Jones
BBC News website Technology editor Darren Waters
Newsnight correspondent Paul Mason
BBC Click reporter Chris Long
BBC Radio 1's Technology reporter Iain Mackenzie
The blog is designed to be complementary to the BBC News website's Technology section - which will still be the main source for bigger news stories and more considered features and analysis. Where appropriate we will be linking to articles on the BBC News website and taking into account the wider debate about CES in the blogosphere.
There will also be news and features across BBC TV news bulletins, News 24, BBC World, Radio 1 and of course on Click.
The BBC wants to be open and accountable, and so this site is a public space where you can engage with us as much as the medium allows. We want your views on any of our blogging posts and to hear about the questions you have about new technologies.
If you are attending CES there is a Flickr group that has been set up for your photographs. We will also be posting our photos to the group.
Comments on this blog will be moderated. When you submit a comment, we will read it and decide whether to publish it. We aim to include as many comments as we can, but we won't publish any which are abusive, are inappropriate on the grounds of taste and decency, or which appear to be part of a concerted lobbying attempt. There's more on our moderation policy in these Have Your Say House Rules.
Comments should be based around the original post and subsequent discussion. If you want to make a general comment, then please e-mail us instead. We can't promise to respond to every e-mail, but we'll do our best to read them all.
You should also bear in mind that e-mailing us, or leaving a comment on the blog, is not the same as making a formal complaint. If you want to do that, this website will help you - and this way, you're guaranteed to receive a formal response.
For comparison purposes, here are links to some of the rules applied by our contemporaries - ABC News, NBC News, and CBS News in the USA, and Sky News and The Guardian in the UK.
