Shopping online is great, but it's nice when you can kick the proverbial tires before you buy. With that idea in mind, the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)—the organization that puts on the Consumer Electronics Show each year—is presenting its third annual series of CEA Demo Days at hundreds of local retailers across the country.
The program will kick off July 20 to 22 with an event called "Experience the Summer Games Like Never Before": Electronics retailers will show customers the best way to watch the Olympics on Internet-connected TVs.
Football is the focus of the next event, scheduled for August 17 to 19, entitled "Make Your Football Fantasies Real." Participating stores will demonstrate the best ways to experience football and other sports. That program will be followed by "Unlock the Power of Digital Audio," demos of connected devices and ways to upgrade your audio experience with better headphones and speakers. That one runs from September 14 to 16.
