Coin-Op Tv's Hailey Bright
How many people can you say you know that were “discovered” while they were out shopping? None? Well, it was the same for us until we met Hailey Bright.

The lovely co-host for the weekly streaming show “Coin-Op TV“, Hailey is bound to pop up on your geek radar sooner or later. Whether it’s on the red carpet at the Spike TV Video Game Awards, on video game box art, or in a few upcoming movies, she’s hard to miss. Hailey was recently selected as’s Babe of the Day(we picked her as a Gamette for a whole month, take that IGN!!) and will be at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show.

While we can’t say we were the first ones to discover Hailey, we can say we have some very well shot, very exclusive photos of Hailey (courtesy of Blank Logo Photography).  If you haven’t caught a glimpse of this beauty, we recommend checking out her Gamette Gallery here.

Consumer Electronics Show to kick off this week

The Consumer Electronics Show will be starting on January 8th, showing off the latest and greatest in, well… Electronics.  Any self respecting geek would love to be here this year considering the announced lineup of techie goodness to be shown this year.  While the economy might be dragging and a number of exhibitors had to cancel, there is still plenty of nerd worthy gadgets to drool over.

Among the goodies to be announced (many are top secret till the show opens) will be new 3-D television technology… minus the goofy glasses!  Several companies will be showcasing the latest in stereoscopic image technology but considering the miserable failures the last few attempts in the field have been, it remains to be seen whether this year’s demonstration will yield any advances.

Then there will be the war of who can be the thinnest… television.  Samsung and JVC were two of the companies to announce flat screens measuring less than 8mm thick.  It will be interesting to see just how thin they can go before your just watching the wall for news and sports updates.

Aside from the tech that will be on display, there will also be some very talented individuals wandering the floors of the CES.  Hailey Bright of Coin-Op TV (and our newest Gamette) comes to mind. Of lesser interest will be the folks from Sony Pictures Television and Jeopardy will be on hand to film daily episodes of  Celebrity Jeopardy on a specially constructed set at the CES in celebration of their 25th Anniversary.  Should I have put that in the form of a question?

Also in attendance will be the infamous Johnathan “Fatal1ty” Wendell.  If you don’t know who he is, you should be fragged by him repeatedly until his name is burned into your retinas.  That might give you a clue.  Sports stars, music stars, the list goes on.  In fact, for a full list of the attendees, just click here.

While the Reckon Crew would have loved to have attended the event, it was decided my compulsive gambling would be a bit too risky for the Busy Gamer wallets and coffers since the event is in Vegas.  At least that’s what I’m going to be telling myself come this Thursday.
