CES_show_floor GoMo seeks would-be hack to cover CES ’15 for us

Your chance for 15 minutes of web fame

It seems that history really does have a habit of repeating itself. That’s because as January 6th [2015] draws closer, here at GoMo Towers once again we find ourselves with no-one lined up to cover the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) show being held in Las Vegas, USA. This event takes place between January 6th-9th [2015]. We thought we had lined up a trainee (intern) to write stories for this web news site. It din’t happen. So we were rather hoping that a GoMo News reader who fancies a bit of heavy duty exposure for his or her scribblings might want to step into the breach. All we can promise, really is your 15 minutes of internet fame! Continue reading

The panel will feature executives from Qualcomm, Electrolux, General Motors, and Philips. Continue reading
