The Ultimate CeBIT 2012 Booth Babe Collection
     Wed, Mar 14 2012 | 12:03P | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Our first edition of the ‘Beauty of CeBIT 2012‘ went over with such success that we thought all might appreciate one more run through on the last day of the show for some last minute shots. You are going to have to trust me when I say this is not as easy of a task as it seems, simply for the fact that the last day of CeBIT is open to the public or ‘end users’ as many like to say and this place is packed. In a few Hangars, there were actually lines to get in as the Hangar was full. Is that even possible?

Cebit's pole-dancing droids
     Sun, Mar 11 2012 | 6:37P | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Robots everywhere, driverless cars, new eco-solutions, screens that "read" feelings, and smart museums and stadiums - just some of the "City of the Future" technologies at this years' Cebit trade fair in Hanover, Germany.

Many of the devices on show sound like the stuff of science-fiction. But even if most are not yet ready for release, their developers are at least able to show off working prototypes."


NEWS FLASH: CeBIT 2012 Ultimate Booth Babe Collection at The SSD Review
     Sat, Mar 10 2012 | 4:55P | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have done it at each of the other technology shows with resounding success and thought we might tackle it once again at CeBIT 2012 in Hannover.  We think you might agree that there is one thing that simply cannot be overlooked as we travel CeBIT, this being European beauty. From Ms Germany,  Anne-Kathrin Kosch, to CES participants, and all the way to a member of the German police herself, there is definitely an aura about European women that cannot be simplified in word alone."

     Fri, Mar 09 2012 | 4:04P | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ZOTAC were kind enough to invite our CeBIT 2012 team into a closed door session today to view some of the new products the firm have waiting in the wings for release later this year. Unfortunately much of what was seen and heard will be under NDA for some time, but we were able to smuggle out a few images of a new pre-release ZBOX we spotted with two others officially unveiled today."
