Last Gadget Standing 2013
Our panel of expert judges have multiple years of expertise in reviewing products. Judges include Michael Miller, Harry McCracken, Dan Costa, Mellissa Perenson, and Joanna Stern. Our experts review your applications and narrow the list down to 25 semi-finalists. Each product submitted gets a description on the website and readers are welcome to comment. The judges will write reviews of the 25 semifinalists and we’ll continue to solicit reader comments until we narrow the list down to the Top 10.
The Top Ten finalists are invited to the Vegas stage where we play to a full house. Entertainment and fun are just and important as educating the audience about your product. We encourage you to watch the videos from past years and get a feel for this very different type of event. At the same time that the audience is voting live in Las Vegas, we will also be tabulating our online votes to choose a "people’s winner." A press release announcing the winners will go out the moment the show has ended.
We’re extremely lucky this year to have Gary "Bababooey" Dell’Abate and Jon Hein, of the Howard Stern Wrap Up Show to emcee Last Gadget Standing. They love all things tech, and they love the CES crowd.
MOBILE APPS SHOWDOWN
LVCC, North Hall
Competition: January 9, 2014, Room N255
The Mobile Apps Showdown is a fast-paced contest where you're asked to weigh in on the apps you think have what it takes to make it. For the months leading up to the 2013 CES, we'll be presenting the contestants to you. You can try the apps, watch demos, make your feelings known, and ultimately vote on a winner. We're platform agnostic, so if it's mobile, it's in the competition.
The top ten apps will join us at 2014 CES for an action packed event hosted by Jon Hein and Gary Dell'Abate from the Howard Stern Wrap Up Show.
Robin Raskin, creator of the Mobile Apps Showdown, will be there to emcee events.
By the end of this year, nearly 50 billion apps will have been downloaded. Only you know which ones are the keepers.
