    If you are any type of technology geek you're anxiously awaiting CES 2012. January 10-13th technophiles from around the country will gather in Las Vegas to get a first glimpse of all the latest and greatest in smartphones, Ultrabooks, TV's, Graphics Cards, Home Entertainment and more.

    So we are asking you, our readers and members, to respond to the poll and discuss what you are excited about. Quad Core's will without a doubt be the hot topic of discussion. Last year it was the Dual Core "beasts" everyone was fired up about. Seems like so long ago doesn't it? The poll is multiple choice so have at it and don't be shy.

    Fire a way. What do you hope to see and what are you excited about?

    If I get a chance to go, maybe what the custom iem market has to offer. I'm all for throwing down 500-$1000 for a nice set of customs(if I had the money to use, at least). Plus they do ear impressions free there, if I recall right. At least altec lansing says they will.

    Actually, that being said, you guys should check out what companies like Westone, Ultimate Ears, and Altec Lansing have to offer. Westone's UM series has a great deal of praise behind it. Altec has some pretty nice looking customs behind it (and probably very competitive). UE has their custom line too, which is used by many an artist, such as Ludacris.

    Windows 8.

    The rest of the stuff is pretty meh. Last year my contract was up in March, so I was interested to see what new phones would be out. Plus, I wanted to know more about vzw's LTE coverage.

    Now that I have a new phone (Bionic), and LTE coverage I don't really care much.

    I'm interested to see the LG Intel powered smartphone. Curious what it looks like and it's specs.

    Goes without saying I will have my eyes on the newest hardware from the Android powered smartphone manufacturers :)

    I do want to hear what Microsoft has to say on their way out. Should be an interesting show

    I just bought the nexus, so I am good for 2 years, so don't totally want to know about the latest and greatest smartphone. I am in the market to buy a tablet and possibly a new HDTV, so interested in those items. Oh yeah and I want a new graphics card for my new quad core desktop, the one it came with is OK, but I want better.

    Gotta love this time of year! I'm hoping Motorola will have some surprises for us and can't wait to see what new tablets will be unveiled.

    I'm hoping to seeing more advancements in OLED tech. I would really like to see a super thin 60" OLED TV that is affordable here in the near future.

    Or perhaps a newer and better technology?

    I'd also like to see better battery technology. As in things that are ready for production and not vapor ware that you read about once and that's the last you ever hear about it.

    I hope they announce the Bionic 2 so I have it in time before next Xmas :)

    Also, Apple won't be attending this year. They are planning their own 'event' which is supposed to major, but rumors point to something to do with Itunes. So I don't know how major it could be.

    I really want to see more about Asus. I like the Padfone concept, and appreciate their Transformer tablets. Supposedly the Padfone, or whatever they put out, will be quad-core. I hope they put out something for Verizon.

    I'm waiting for the uber-dock for phone and tablet. The base will have docks for both devices and also an HD and optical drive.
    That would be the best of all worlds.

    All due respect, you should make sure that you have a certified ENT person to your molds, that's vital to getting good customs. I have a set of custom IEMs, I love them. I didn't go all out on my first set, I went with a brand called LIVEWIRES, they're pretty solid, they perform well in the mid range to upper, the low end leaves a lot to be desired, but they weren't anywhere near the price of the UEs that I want.I wouldn't look at Altec Lansing unless they paid me to take them, I've had enough experience with their equipment of all levels and haven't run into anything yet that's superior to anything in it's class. They are the "Beats" of "high" end headphones. I would say for sure that UE, or Westones are good, UE is pretty much the standard. Get a nice set with triple drivers and you'll be in hog heaven with the proper headphone amp and source audio.If you think MP3s sound good, don't buy good speakers or headphones, if you can bare to listen to audio from Pandora, Youtube, Grooveshark or anything like that. Do not buy high end headphones. They only reveal the garbage and compression in those schemes.
