Engadget San Francisco event

We're still reeling about the fact that several hundred people showed to our SF event (they seem to get bigger and bigger)-but even better are all the amazing photographs you took of the thing. Attendees played with devices from Motorola, Microsoft, OQO, Nokia, Sling Media, Sonos, chilled with Engadget editors (whether or not they knew it), and took home some seriously sweet prizes from all of the above. We'd like to thank Metaliq and PGP for putting the thing on with us, and for all the readers who were able to make it out. If you weren't among them, don't worry, we'll surely be coming your way soon enough!
