Silicon Valley Sleuth is travelling back to Europe to check out what the old world is up to in technology these days. Yes I will be attending Cebit in Hannover, the largest technology tradeshow in the world.

Only an endless array of technology gadgets and novelties can make up for this setback. And German beers beat the watered down lemonade that they call Budweiser any day.
