Just a quick note to tell Macworld readers that we’re covering the IFA show in Berlin. While I’ve been to many trade shows in the past, IFA is a new one to me so it should be exciting in many ways. It’s billed as “the world’s largest consumer electronics trade fair” (whether it’s bigger than CES remains to be seen though). I’ll be blogging from the show floor on Friday so hopefully will have lots of new products to tell you about.
While it’s hardly an Apple event like the Macworld Expo in San Francisco, there’s a lot of tech toys here that should be of interest to Mac owners. Certainly if you’re a bit of a gadget hound like myself there should be plenty to pique your interest.
The only downside is that it is in Germany. Don’t get me wrong: contrary to the national English stereotype I actual enjoy Germany a great deal and do find the Germans both friendly and humorous. But it’s a shame that the UK doesn’t have a large tech show like this of its own.
