Sex has always sold well, particularly when your target are computer-addicted, teen males, hasn't it? Accordingly to that, they picked a couple of hot, skinny booth babes.

Anyway, TT started improving most of lineup since at least a couple of years.

Their head of marketing clearly ran out of ideas...

Funny though to see the fat kid on the right hand side at the start who appears to be looking past the dancing girls to whatever dreadful LED ridden piece of tat it is that he wants to spend his pocket money on.

Brings up memories of back in the day with CeBit.

CeBit was something I looked forward to until the year when it changed from having techies there to having salescritters representing computer companies. A lot of the fun went out of it because the only info available was marketdroid doublespeak and outright lies with the salescritters espousing BS with the confidence only the wilfully ignorant can achieve.

Then they put a little cherry on the top of that when most had good looking chicks reading off scripts so dumbed down and generic that it would be difficult to tell if they were talking about something computer related or Tupperware.

That was for many of us the last straw and we stayed away. They weren't even making the slightest effort any more to reach us.

CeBit was forced to then split into two parts, one for us techies and then a second part for the unwashed masses more interested in T&A instead of Q&A.
