I


t’s what now? G2E again? Already? Wow. So much has changed in a year, not just pro- fessionally but personally too. This time in Vegas I will have to bring back presents for little ones, not just my usual rampage around the Nike outlet. I’m very much looking forward to


a few things for this year’s G2E trip. The new Anchor Bar in the Venetian is a must-do, as, I suspect, is the Fremont Street zip wire. And the Hofbrauhaus, where we will raise a glass or three to those that cannot be with us, and remember them fondly. And of course, we will do lots of work and be very


grown up. With that in mind, I do heartily recommend scanning the QR code on the cover, below, and in the Iverson feature pages on 40-41– it’s a short demo of Iverson’s Mopbile Player App, which we are rather excited about. Certainly one to watch for while you’re at G2E, we think. Enjoy the issue!
