Day 2 of CeBIT started much like yesterday, the weather was cold but the German countryside was beautiful on our way in to Hannover.

Christoph and Jens sleepily walk towards Hall 21

The second day of CeBIT, as we were warned, was far more crowded than yesterday. Apparently as the week goes on, more and more people will crowd the halls and remind us of our days at CES just two months ago.

Each one of those boxes is a hall at CeBIT, and they are huge

I continue to be amazed at how well organized CeBIT is, each hall is very specific and even as it becomes more crowded it's no where near as painful to navigate as CES. I am told that this will change come Friday when end-users and school kids drop by the show looking for freebees, but until then I'm enjoying it.

    Pandas everywhere are cursing this latest 'innovation' from Asus... what a waste of effort. Never understood why anyone would want to enclose a computer in such a poor conductor of heat. Reply

    I am interested in the NIA. But my main question is what else can you do with it. To reduce CTS it would be great if you could just type with it. I have never been happy with voice recognition so far and it doesnt work well in an office with other people. But if these products could be made with enough input recognition to at least get the letters numbers and punctuation of the keyboard I would buy it in a hearbeat. Imagine taking notes in class without bothering people with the keys and writing documents and emails quickly and silently. Reply

    I just picked an OCZ NIA up.. I know this is an old thread.. I haven't spent hours training it yet but I am anticipating some interesting hacks out soon and maybe some firmware hacks since this is a pretty cheap item now. Anyway, I will review further on my own site as I play with it, you can catch that at"> and soon at where I intend to try out all these devices to put together a good William Gibson style portable computer complete with Vusix 920AV glasses and some Nvidia or android or Iphone device at the center.. anyway, more to come son on what I can get this toy to do..;)

    Could you please find out if the Asus Xonar HDAV card will output TrueHD and DTS MA bitstream, or only LPCM? Reply
