My daughter would love the Piano Apprentice. She has always wanted to take lessons, but with this piano, I will not have to put her in them. I don’t think the last day had too much interesting things. I did however in the previous days love the Intel Nikiski see-through notebook and the Hopper. Those are both things I want to get. The Hopper through DISH Network I got a chance to check out with some co-workers at DISH, and it was amazing. The way you can be watching a show on one TV and continue it in another room. I love all the features on it and I am so excited for it to be released. All I know is this year at CES I thought was the best.
