Footsore and skull-numbed, our panelists join us in this extra-long episode of the podcast to unload their collective brains of all they saw at CES 2011. The gang runs through everything from the mood and attendance at this year's show, to the latest and greatest in the cult of clicky keyboards, to whatever coolness Razer has to show this time around. As a bonus, Jordan reviews a slew of earbuds for smartphones.
