Slideshow: CES: What Gina Wants For Her Birthday

I love the Showstoppers event my old friend Steve Leon puts on every year. All the hot tech products show up, it's never too crowded and it's an amazing way to catch up with old contacts and colleagues you missed on the show floor.
My intrepid CES team -- photog Nevin Berger and ace videographer Matt Conner were with me all week long -- did a lot more than schmooze. We checked out a boatload of tech. Some of them announced right at Showstoppers, such as RealNetworks' Unifi cloud management technology and Monsoon's $99 TV Shifting device, the Vulkano Flow.
On the show floor, we grabbed some shots of some stuff I'd want for my birthday. I'm starting the list early. Topping my list: the new BMW Z4 Hot dog, do I want that car, especially with its new QNX technology. Don't buy it for me, though. Journalists can't receive gifts from vendors. Bummer!
