LAS VEGAS -- I almost didn't recognize the guy standing in the front row, waiting for Bill Gates to deliver his swan song keynote at the Consumer Electronics Show.
It's Paul Allen, who was yacking with, I believe, Viacom boss Philip Daumann until a nosey reporter horned in.
Allen has lost a lot of weight -- "I've got a trainer,'' he said.
I thought it was from all the cheering at Saturday's Seahawks game.
Allen said he's here to show support for Bill. Maybe the Microsoft co-founders will have more time to hang out after Bill finally cuts back on his Microsoft duties this summer, as Allen did back in 1983.
