Behind the scenes at the real CESEmily Dreyfuss and Karyne Levy take you on a tour of the CNET Trailer, aka the crib, to see where the CES magic really happens.
Hello. Oh, it's you. Hey, welcome to the CNET trailer. I am Emily Dreyfuss. I am gonna give you a little tour. Thanks so much for coming. We'll start out with the kitchen. As you know, we here at CNET like to be incredibly healthy. So all we eat are red (vines?). I have one right now. Planters peanuts, a lot of 3 Musketeer bars. There are many of those. So it's totally healthy. Oh, you don't one? Great. There's more where that came from. And also, yeah, we have... these are my favorites, the butter cookies. One thing that's really good (diet?) in here and we're doing like 25 live blogs, I eat like 15 of those. It was kind of a scary sight to see. But the absolute most important part of the kitchen area of the CNET trailer is our delicious coffee. It's delivered to us twice a day from a very friendly lady who is a local in Vegas and it's sometimes warm, sometimes not so warm but who cares, we're not picky in the CNET Trailer. Then, sandwiches. Yum, yum, yum, yum yum. That's what I thought on day one. These are the... This sandwich has won the Best of CES Sandwich award. They are made with (crystal nuts?). It's kind of a magic. That's what I think of things. We just get a little bit low tech around here at the end of the week. This, I wanna show you, is the east wing of the CNET Trailer. Not (CNET-ies?) actually. These are game spotters. Game spotters in the wild. So we just let them hang out there 'cause the trailer is so vast and huge, there's room for everybody. It's so huge, in fact, that we have a backyard. Look at our porch. It's so cute. It's made out of rusted steel. It's a little rickety. Sometimes, I struggle late at night but I think it's pretty cute and it's the best place for viewing the only piece of art that we have in the CNET trailer. We're really in to a (arts around here?) as you know. We like fine lines and design and as you can see, yeah, this is a great example of modern design but, really the best part is the balloon, CNET Balloon. Sometimes late at night when it windy in Vegas, I'll be walking back from the bathroom like lost, suddenly all I can see are other bloggers around and then we rumble. And then I just find my way home with the CNET Balloon. It's pretty wonderful. Okay. Come back inside so I can show you more magic. We have to be a little bit quiet because our CNET editors at hard at work but they've given me lead to show one and each of them really fast. There they are. Okay. Now back to me. Oh, that didn't happen. You did not just hear belts from the pit. But really that is where the actual magic happens. There's no bedroom in the CNET trailer. So this is the (stander?). This is our lively whiteboard. As you can see, we don't use it because there's something called the computer where you don't have to write with pen. You can actually type and then e-mail it to each other. I am not sure if you knew that as a CNET fan. And we have trash cans. They are made of cardboard. Who knew, that was the thing. When you're done with that, you just throw the entire trash can away. And what are we doing in this room? Hey guys, I didn't see you there. Let me take you of a tour of the west wing of the CNET trailer. Come on. Here we have the west wing. It's pretty awesome digs, right? That's what I thought when I first saw where we were gonna be spending 24 hours of our time. Let me show you the best part about the west wing, the view. Pretty awesome, right? Come on, let me show you some more of the west wing of the trailer. In here, we have what once was a bathroom. It's now a utility closet. Check out these boxes. Come on, let me show you our other bathroom. This trailer is so amazing, we've got two bathrooms that don't work. Check it out.. (closet?) tub, jacuzzi. It's all in here, guys. We really crank up the tunes late at night and we all have a party in here. It's pretty awesome. Come on, let me show you some more of our CNET trailer. Right here, you've got the sink that doesn't work. This is where we like to complain that we can't pour our coffees down and so at the end of a long day of editing, all you've got are empty and half empty and mostly full coffee cups laying around. We don't know where to dump them, so we just leave them everywhere. Anyway, that's all we've got for you guys today. Thanks for joining us at CNET "crib." Yeah. Trailer. I am so glad we got to show you what the real CES is like. You thought that there was lots of vendors. You thought it was all like in some sort of magical Vegas. Ladies, you are incorrect. Gambling. This is it. It all happens in the double wide in the parking lot. This is the magic. All right. Thanks for joining us. We gotta go now. See you later. Bye. Bye. Be careful. Be careful of the stairs. This is freezing.
