      Nothing yet.
      Thought I'd try it as I was thinking about the CEA standards and research and looking into things more as I explore new tech...

        Tech Enthusiast Community Newsletter

        Just received:


        Tech Enthusiast Community Newsletter

        CEA and the Tech Enthusiast team would like to welcome you to this exclusive community specially designed for fans of technology.

        We encourage you, as exclusive members, to come back to our site frequently to check out the latest insider info, beta-testing opportunities, pre-release info, and special offers on all things technology! One of our goals for the Tech Enthusiast membership is to create a forum for all of us tech fans to unite and discuss and debate the current state of tech products and the tech industry. The loyalty that you have displayed over the years by purchasing the newest products and keeping up to date with the latest technology has not gone unnoticed.

        Events
        We were in San Francisco on November 12 for gdgt live, hosted by the online site gdgt.com. There were all sorts of gadgets and demos provided by vendors. This is a great event! We will be posting new gdgt live events when they are announced. Be sure to check out the Coming Events section on the Tech Enthusiast member site to keep up to date with the many unique tech events across the country and in your area. If you get a chance to attend an event, please let us know how it went!

        Blog for All CEA Members to See
        We would also like to encourage our brave members to utilize the CEA Digital Dialogue forum to blog about any and all things related to technology. Just visit Digital Dialogue to view all of our bloggers and their entries. To become a blogger yourself, contact Carolyn Slater. All of our tech enthusiasts are also encouraged to visit the discussion boards on the TE site to chat with fellow tech enthusiasts and to discuss and debate current topics within the tech world.

        Member of the Month
        A heads up to our members, starting in January, we will be selecting a tech enthusiast member to highlight as our "member of the month." Specific info is forthcoming.

        2011 International CES
        One of the greatest perks many of you have earned is the opportunity to join us at the 2011 CES in Las Vegas in January. The first 1,000 members to become a Tech Enthusiast member were invited to be our special guests at CES on Sunday, January 9th. We look forward to meeting some of you there and enjoying the marvel that is CES!

        For those who will be unable to make the show, no worries, we have you covered. Our Tech Enthusiast team will be busy collecting all the insider information as well as video coverage and behind the scenes footage from this one of a kind event. Keep an eye on the TE site in January for all of the CES goodies! We will also be tweeting and updating the facebook site to keep you informed on all the cool gadgets and gizmos that we come across.

        We can't be more excited here at CEA about the Tech Enthusiast membership. We are growing daily in both Tech Enthusiast members and corporate partnerships from CEA member companies. You are some of the first to join this expanding community and we thank you! Please keep an eye out for updates both in the form of our e-newsletter and on our Tech Enthusiast site.

        And if you have any questions, suggestions or comments, please feel free to pass them along at [email protected].

            CEA Tech has a LinkedIn group.
            I'm not sure about FaceBook.
