Working hard at CeBit …

If you are wondering why I was a little slow with blackbag, it is
because I was busy preparing for the CeBit conference in Hannover.

CeBit is the biggest consumer electronics tradeshow on the planet. And
ever since we came to the market we have had a booth there, and every
time it has been a little stressful to complete the demo models for the booth.

It is hard work at the booth, and I make many hours, but luckily there
are some circumstances that make life bearable …

Feel free to drop by at our booth in hall 7 booth D22 for a cup of coffee ….

    Ummm…I’m not afraid to say this Barry, but you have a very good looking company. A very good looking company indeed.

    Hopefully I’ll have a booth there next year, or the year after. (crosses fingers).

    Good luck though score some good clients.

    Hello Barry,

    Wow! Tell us more about the girl πŸ™‚

    I’m interested to know your professional/academic background. Are you an electronics engineer or computer programmer by training?

    Locksports are practically non-existant where I am from (Australia) and the UK and USA LS forums appear to be suffocated by the conservatism of “working locksmiths” else they are near death (posting activity alone does not necessarily indicate life). At least from the outside, the contintental European scene looks more lively, open, and fun. With a view to becoming (remotely) involved in the European locksport world would you recommend I learn Dutch or German?

    Good luck at CeBit!

    Hi there!

    Since 1999 I visited every CeBIT, except this year. Bad luck for me, this year I have to write an assay in these days and prepare a presentation.

    pe, the best lockpickers come from germany, so I suggest to learn german even if I suppose Barry has some other opinion πŸ™‚

    Currently the Germans are the best but we have quite a few members from other countries pulling up the ranks. πŸ˜‰

    All I have to say is, give it time.

    But yes for the greatest cross section I’d say learn German, and you’d be fine, since you already have English your almost set.

    Nothing bad about the boothchick, but I’m afraid she couldn’t convince me to cycle over to Hannover. Not even the gadgets, not even the free ballpoints. Hope you don’t feel offended πŸ˜‰

    Barry – you look somehow different in that photo.

    not sure about the details of your product but I remember the very first mobile phones could be eavesdropped with an ordinary radio scanner and the early wireless home phones actually broke through onto my radio from my next door neighbours house.

    Off on a tangent but I just bought my mother a DECT wireless home phone… how secure are these? I presume it’s difficult to accidentally crash in on someone elses conversation, but I’d be interested in hackable they are.

  7. Hi Barry!

    Just dropped by to “inform” or to advice you and/or your company that the Cryptophone marketing/advertisement video is great except for one thing that hits my ears: “Military grade encryption”. Now, as I believe that you know something about cryptography, you could edit that out πŸ™‚ There is no “military grade encryption”, but there is “highly academically studied cryptographic encryption” πŸ˜‰

    Bruce Schneier defined this thing alot better than me and I advice you to go to his blog/website to read about it πŸ™‚

    No offense meant by this, I would certainly buy that phone if it were sold here in Finland and with reasonable price tag πŸ™‚
