I just returned from CeBit the worlds largest yearly computer fair. I can hardly not notice it, being hosted in Hannover and practically shutting down the highway I need to get to work quick and easy, but has anyone of you heard from it, or maybe even been here ? It's business only, supposedly no games. Some sneak in, but rarely. I wonder if it's known outside Germany. Seeing all the asian people in the subway and listening to english speaking people all over the place, I guess it is.

If you happen to be here or plan to be here next year, drop me a line so we can grab a beer or something ;)

playstation did not get kicked out ... sony decided to show games for the PS2 (something that is against the rules of cebit) and a lot of companies complained including MS who had taken their xbox there and were not showing games. The organisers asked sony to remove the games and instead sony removed the entire display

Yep, heard a lot of it, but never been there. It is well known here in the Netherlands.

>I wonder if it's known outside Germany.

I think it's quite well known in Europe.

Yep. Europe is a small place.
