Well it wasn't a disappointed kickoff to DigitalLife 2006 at all yesterday!
(And didn't really expect it to be either; wore outs lots of shoe leather walking the floor of the Javits Center -- but walking is good for you, isn't it?)
We started with the launch of the Treo 680 from Palm (more about that later -- blog, blog, blog) and moved a whole bunch of wideranging topics of interest:
eBay University, which presented educational sessions and workshops to teach beginners and experienced eBay users alike how to sell with success
- Launch of Final Fantasy XII, the latest in the best-selling Final Fantasy franchise from Square Enix (in stores October 31)
- Gaming, gaming and gaming! Xbox 360, Xbox Live! and the latest games from Microsoft Game Studios, Square Enix, Konami, Namco, Vivendi, Ubisoft and Electronic Arts
- More gaming! The $100,000 DigitalLife Pro Am Video Gaming Tournament returned, with CounterStrike, Warcraft III, Quake 4 and F.E.A.R. as the featured games
- Still more gaming! Debuting at DigitalLife this year was the Boost Mobile MLG Pro Tour, featuring the Playoff series for their nationwide Halo 2 and Smash Bros. tournaments
There's still time to take in the whole show (running through Sunday).
