LAS VEGAS -- While interviewing a Samsung manager about the company's amazing new WiMax hardware, I set a cup of coffee on a convenient ledge in the Samsung booth.
The manager's eyes widened and he gently but urgently asked me to move my coffee. It turns out I had set the paper cup on top of a mobile WiMax station that was powering the booth.
The metal box is supposed to be weatherproof but Samsung's Jim Parker didn't want to take any chances.
I was also nervous about what could happen if I messed something up -- Parker's title is "Senior Manager, Wireless Systems S & M."
(Sorry, I've been in Vegas too long already.)
