ESC West/Electronica hands on labs are up and running - we're running four labs, eMbedded Visual C++, Windows CE Platform Builder, Windows XP Embedded and C#

The Windriver booth has a Mars Rover, I can't decide whether this is a model or the real thing, it's not moved in two days, so I'm guessing it's the real thing...

Talking of Mars Rover, this HP Printer advert made me chuckle... check it out...

The Microsoft booth is covered in shipping devices, one of which is a beer dispenser, I get the feeling this might be put to good use at the Thirsty Bear for tonights Geek Fest...
