Description

The boat show is so much more than enormous yachts and sexy speed boats. I went there to see how technology has improved boating and what new gadgets and toys are available on the water. After watching this piece you'll never get lost, never be in the dark, and never be without TV or internet....and more.

      Just saw a picture of Paul Allen's boat.

      Jeepers that thing is HUGE. Plus it have a submarine? Ridiculousness.

      Wow, Laura!  That was a fantastic segment.  You were a busy babe.  That was like all the CES segments rolled into one and you covered all of it.  Fantastic!  Your humor is second to none.

      I thought the glass Internet instrumentation and glass bridge displays were rather impressive - the glass bridge in particular.  That was a complete package and you really can't deny that it looks like something right out of the original Star Trek television series.  Very impressive stuff.  I liked the toilets also.  They didn't happen to have a john did they because I want a boat with a urinal on it.

      I've always had an interest in boats, but I'll probably never be able to afford or service one.  If I'm ever wealthy, I'll commission the world's first flying yacht.  Imagine something about half the size of the Spruce Goose that opens up into a luxury yacht for cruises on the Mediterranean.  You and Tina are invited on a first-class European cruise by sea and air when that happens.  Smiley
