Ok, i was quite a little bit silent here during the past days (on
the::unwired) and the past weeks (in my blog). Well, at the moment I'm a little
bit (too) busy with another job/task and therefore I hadn't found too much time
to jump in here.
Anyway, I took some days "off" now to join the MÃƒÂ¶bius 2006 conference in Boston
(you remember, MÃƒÂ¶bius Part 1 was last week in Thailand).
So I've just arrived, (thankfully) non-stop from Munich and checked in just
to find out, I've forgotten some adapters at home (as I said, I'm quite busy at
the moment and it looks like I had my head anywhere else when I've packed my
bag). Anyway, thankfully the hotel is located close to a mall where we have
BestBuy and RadioShack which means I can a) charge my devices (I had the
European chargers with me only plus two USB cables I could use for charging
anyway) and b) I can upload photos from the event (because I also forgot my CF
to PC card adapter because I changed my bag in the last minute to a backpack).
I flew with Lufthansa which still operates Connexion by Boeing and basically
I was online the whole flight; but not with my Notebook (the battery is
completely dead, right after 45 minutes, the Notebooks hibernates - in the
beginning it worked roughly 4 hours on battery and since I had an Economy chair,
I hadn't had a power plug there) but with my O2 Xda trion (which means I've used
the trion together with W-LAN for around 5 - 6 hours). Not that bad but after
the flight, also the trion's battery was completely drained.
So here we go tonight with the meet and great to follow-up with the
conference tomorrow morning. I'm really looking forward to meet old fellow
MÃƒÂ¶bians again and to meet new ones, most often folks which websites I read every
day but I never met in reality so far nor I know who they are.
More to come tomorrow - I think. It always depends on what Microsoft and its
partners shows us and how confidential they want us to treat this stuff. While
MÃƒÂ¶bius isn't an NDA event at all, at least we don't have to sign any NDAs, for
some sessions Microsoft asks the attendees to keep the one or the other stuff
confidential, on the other hand they ask for our feedback since MÃƒÂ¶bius is
interactive, not just a bunch of slideshow presentations. No, it's about a never
ending conversation and discussion which you can
learn more about here.
Cheers ~ Arne
