25 Semifinalists Chosen: Jon Hein and Gary Dell’Abate Ready to Host Mobile Apps at CES 2011



Who will walk in this year’s Mobile Apss Showdown winner’s shoes?


The 3rd annual completion is heating up fast.  Judges: Robin Raskin, Larry Seltzer, Dave Whittle, Helena Stone, Dana Oshiro, Chris Null, Rick Singer and Brian Page have been busily weighing the pros and cons of submissions from companies large and small.


Last year’s winners: Line2 and Drive Safely have been catapulted to fame. The 2010 winners, Clixtr and Gwabbit have continued to innovate and make news.


This year’s pool of possible winners are super cool, covering everything from comprehensive health to working with video, to crowd sourcing.


Standing ready are our hosts: Jon Hein and  Gary “Baba Booey” Dell’Abate from The Wrap up Show on the Howard Stern channel on SiriusXM Radio. Hein’s tech claim to fame came is the creation of Jump the Shark, devoted to the moments where there’s only one way to go: downhill. (Just ask Fonzie). Who better to pick “Jump the Shark” moments in technology?


Dell’Abate, producer of The Howard Stern Show and author of They Call Me Baba Booey, is a home theater devotee who writes a column for Sound and Vision magazine. They’re really looking forward to being with thousands of kindred spirits so we hope you’ll show up and cheer ‘em on. Mark your calendars for Thurs. January 12th at 10:30am in Room N255, the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
