Okay, everyone into the Faraday Cage

"One major exhibitor was playing it safe, said Mike Millikin, senior vice president of Comdex Worldwide. Microsoft Corp. and its partners displayed their wireless tablet monitors in a tent set up in the parking lot of the Las Vegas Convention Center.

"It's one reason why the Microsoft Smart Displays hands-on area is in a tent off the floor because they didn't want the interference,'' Millikin said. "It's hard to effectively display a wireless device if you can't be wireless. And it's hard to be reliably wireless in an environment where you've got a thousand exhibitors.''"

While it doesn't say that this was a Faraday cage it's funny to think that you go all the way to Las Vegas only to haul onto a parking lot to escape all of the interference.
