When I return from CeBIT people will ask me, what's new? Well, that depends entirely on what you find interesting. Here are a few observations:

I'm with Gruber regarding Apple and Netbooks.

And does the fact that I'm using an Air mean I'm not a professional? ;-)

No, it means you have a power source readily available and you don't mind carrying a power brick.

Interesting stuff about broadband. I was under the impression that ADSL 2+ (20 Mbps/1Mbps) was pretty much the end of the line for Copper based residential connections and that we would need to move to Fiber beyond that. From what I read you need to be less than 1Km away from the DSLAM for VDSL to work, that means I'm out of luck, and I need to look for a new house ;-( Too bad I really liked my 1782 House in the middle of the French country side.. (I'm 1.8 Km away from my DSLAM).

Joel, what they here is that they run fiber close to the homes and then use copper for the last 300 meters. Here is a gallery of the technology and how it is deployed in Germany.

Article (german) about VDSL in Germany. Pretty old, but the basics are well explained.

I want this "braadband" for myself :-)

Damn, checking for VDSL coverage reveals that I live about 150m away from a zone with maximum bandwidth :-(
