Today I arrived at the CeBit in Hannover where I will stay until Wednesday. As expected for Sunday there are not so much business customers but more the kids, families and geeks. So I' ve a quite relaxed day and found some time to walk around.

This year there are no hot  new announcements from the IT companies, including Microsoft (Ok, we lauched BizTalk, but that wasn't really a surprise:-). Even the usual gizmos and gadgets aren't there, or at least they didn't jingle loud enough to get my attention. Looking at the public press coverage it appears that CeBit is more seen as a consumer fair where you can get the newest mobile phone and digital camera technologies.
