Bongiovi 'd

5:05 AM -- One thing about being on the CES press list is the wealth of obscure consumer electronics pitches you get sent. Like an invitation to check out famed record producer Tony Bongiovi's "digital powerstation" in Vegas.

"The patented Digital Power Station technology is a unique digital signal processing method that substantially enhances sound quality in playback devices by compensating for deficiencies in useable frequencies, audio components, environments and room acoustics," it says in the blurb. Which is all well and good but not really earth-shaking for a wireless reporter.

The name "Bongiovi," however, rang a bell. Turns out that he is, in fact, the second cousin of New Jersey's finest hair metal export, Jon Bon Jovi, and helped to him get his start in music.

It's a shame, though, that I can't think of any excuse as to why I should go and cover it at the show.
