Submission + - CeBIT Video Coverage

Charbax writes: "I'm doing video coverage from CeBIT for the 4th year in a row available at here as youtube embeds and as DivX in High Definition streaming and downloads. Check out the MSI PE201, a High Definition H264/Mpeg4/Mpeg2/WMV player with ethernet, 160GB HDD, DVD burner, runs Linux on a Toshiba TX4939 CPU and is available for 270$ only through ISPs. Also check out the Digital Cube G43, the worlds smallest UMPC, could also work great for Linux. And the Yahsin Projector and pen concept, it could be the most compact large screen computer interface using a laser projector, a retractable mirror and a special pen. I've also posted videos of the NEC Virtual Multimedia PC, the IBM Cell Processor and more than 40 other HD videos."
