07.03.2009: The fact that computers continue using electricity unless you actually unplug them is a long-standing problem. Taking such a drastic measure has a great many drawbacks, such as making it impossible for system administrators

The 0-watt computer - from zero to hero

The fact that computers continue using electricity unless you actually unplug them is a long-standing problem. Taking such a drastic measure has a great many drawbacks, such as making it impossible for system administrators to install updates overnight. Fujitsu Siemens Computers will be demonstrating a solution to this problem with a world premiere at CeBIT 2009 - the first 0-watt computer that uses no power in standby mode.

The saving for a single PC may not appear to be that great at first glance, but the team at Fujitsu Siemens Computers sees it as its global responsibility to manufacture such a computer if it is technically feasible. The company has an ongoing commitment to green IT and takes environmental protection very seriously. And although the saving for an individual PC is relatively small, the 0-watt computer is definitely a worthwhile undertaking given the huge future demand for computers.

Take a look what your attorney is doing!

Anyone involved in a legal dispute normally enlists the services of an attorney, but many clients are unsure exactly how much effort attorneys actually put into looking after their interests. This could now well change thanks to LEGALXPRESS, the electronic reference file being exhibited by AM-SoFT at CeBIT 2009.

As soon as a client enlists the services of an attorney to represent him or her, the attorney's office creates a new reference file incorporating all the documents relating to the case - such as client documentation, court documents and memos. All clients have a legal right to a copy of their reference file from their attorney, but most are reluctant to exercise this right because they fear this would indicate a lack of trust on their part.

LEGALXPRESS should help resolve this kind of human relations dilemma. This new form of communication comprising a simple link to the website of the attorney's office enables clients to consult their electronic file, which is saved on a super secure server. The server is accessed via a secure connection with password protection and can only be consulted by clients once they have been given the relevant access data in person. This has the advantage of enabling attorneys to comply with clients' legal right to consult official and court documents relating to them. It also promotes trust between client and attorney.

Paper, Pen & Phone - much more than just a pen!

Quicker processes and lower costs - the online pen being unveiled by T-Systems at CeBIT 2009 converts handwritten notes directly into digital data that is transmitted to central company servers by Bluetooth and cellphone technology.

This system is useful for tasks such as getting contracts signed. Online signatures will speed up business transactions in future. A number of other applications are also conceivable. For example, visitors to CeBIT 2009 can print out PowerPoint slides, write additions on printouts by hand and see the changes incorporated in the electronic version in real time. Notes written on printouts can even be sent via e-mail. T-Systems is offering this new-generation pen in a package that includes printer software, integration, a service desk and hosting.

Paris welcomes guests with charm and poise

Just imagine, you're running late for an important business meeting and the company is based in a huge office complex. As soon as you enter the door, it's obvious you'll never find your way around. But then you meet Paris - the digital doorman currently to be found on duty at CeBIT - and everything turns out fine.

Paris recognizes and welcomes visitors in the foyer and provides them with all the key information they need. A guidance system or a video link to the person you are meeting can be activated with a verbal command or a light touch of the finger. Paris is also perfectly capable of issuing visitor passes, performing a safety briefing or opening doors electronically.

Vacation photo slideshow with the compact mini-projector

The latest technological innovation for people on the move comes from the Netherlands. Adapt-Mobile Ltd. will be exhibiting a tiny mini-projector at CeBIT 2009. Measuring just 125 x 155 x 23 millimeters, it is a true miniature marvel and, at just 100 grams (excluding battery), a lightweight one too.

The Multimedia Xperience Pocket Projector is ideal for a mobile slideshow of vacation photos or your one-year-old daughter's latest attempts at walking. The mini-projector has a 1-gigabyte memory and can display JPEG photos in sizes ranging from 15 centimeters to 1.27 meters. It supports various formats and is compatible with all popular memory cards. Instead of a mains connection there is a rechargeable lithium battery that lasts for up to 60 minutes.

A digital memory for products

If products had a memory, they could do things such as tell freight companies that they should be handled with care. This may sound like something out of a sci-fi movie, but visitors to CeBIT 2009 can witness such "miracles" and many more like them at the live presentation of the SemProM (Semantic Product Memory).

Highly miniaturized embedded elements, RFID technology, instrumented environments and intelligent sensor networks create the technological basis for providing products with a memory. The information in the memory can be used throughout the product's life - from the manufacturing process to the end user. For example, a robot can read RFID tags providing details on size, weight and lifting points to facilitate the handling of non-uniform bulk items. Used in conjunction with object recognition technology and camera-assisted manipulation control, this enables the robot to expertly grasp items of all shapes and sizes.

Among the digital memory's features that users can take advantage of is a reader that displays data stored in barcode or RFID form in large text. What's more, technical jargon such as E306 (vitamin E) is rendered in a form that is easy to understand.

New Opel Insignia Sports Tourer makes its debut at CeBIT 2009

Two days before the Geneva Motor Show and fourteen before its official market launch, the new Opel Insignia Sports Tourer will be making its debut at CeBIT 2009. The car will be on show at the MERIAN Scout Navigator stand.

This practical navigation device can be seen in the station wagon model of the Opel. It tells drivers exactly what they need to know, be it the best hotel in the area or the nearest gourmet restaurant. Other impressive and innovative highlights of the new car include the Opel Eye - a camera located between the inside rear view mirror and the windshield that identifies traffic signs and displays information such as the speed limit it has just seen on the dashboard.

An eBook for sunny days

If Foxit Software has its way, instead of whiling away a long train journey with a book or newspaper we will soon be whipping out the eSlick - a new eBook reader being exhibited by the company at CeBIT 2009.

The really special feature of this innovation is its use of ePaper technology. This gives the eSlick a high-contrast black and white display that looks exactly like real paper and is just as easy to read. As a result, legibility is not affected either by the light conditions or the angle at which the device is being viewed. Text remains clearly legible, even in direct sunlight.

Thanks to eInk technology, the eSlick does not require any energy to display a page, only to move on to the next one. As a result, up to 8,000 pages can be read from beginning to end before having to recharge the battery.

Weighing in at just 180 grams and at just 1 centimeter thick, the eSlick is thinner and lighter than a standard paperback. Thanks to a special pdf creator, entire newspapers, magazines and books can be loaded onto the eSlick at the touch of a button. This device converts printable documents (for example in txt, ppt, doc, xls or html format) into a pdf that can be downloaded in less than a minute. The pre-installed Foxit Reader reads the loaded pdf documents and the display can be adjusted from 50% to 400%. An integrated MP3 player provides an accompanying soundtrack if the relevant music files are saved on the eSlick via USB.
