The working press in the Halles of Cebit.
The messages for Cebit this year are pretty much the same. The
big issues are Wireless Networking for fun and profit, Recordable
DVD for fun and profit, phones for all, and cameras everywhere.
Security, of course, was a major theme, and if we weren’t all
already scared to death, companies peddling security were out
there telling people that the viruses and worms we’ve been battling
are nothing compared to the mothers of all worms that are on their
way—unless, of course, we pony up the bucks for their software.
In a word, yipes!
Also at Cebit entire graphics lines are being filled out by
ATI, Nvidia, and SiS. S3 has chimed in with product announcements—new
DeltaChrome products are expected to arrive in time for fall.
