Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

CONFOUND THE SUPERMAKETS AND GAIN A WHOLE NEW SHOPPING IDENTITY AT EXTREME COMPUTING 2002

Your supermarket loyalty card - it just sits there in your purse or wallet, silently recording everything you buy, occasionally rewarding you with just enough points and prizes to keep you taking it to the shops. But now it's your chance to get your own back - at /EXTREME COMPUTING 2002, where you can swap your loyalty card with someone else's (cash in the points first if you must), and take on the brand new demographic profile of a complete stranger.

Imagine the data-processors' bafflement when a healthy-eating family of 4 suddenly turns into a single 33-year-old male who consumes nothing but satsumas and ready meals. Plus, in your own small way, you'll be
helping to stave off the nightmarish world of personal surveillance predicted by George Orwell's "1984".

But the fun does not end there. Other attractions at this startlingly reasonably priced event will include:

CIRCUIT BENDING - get amazing new sounds from any cheap electronic musical instrument, by taking the back off it and fiddling with the wires.

MAME CABINETS - the video games that can play any arcade classic ever invented.

COMMEMORATIVE WEB BROWSER TEA-TOWELS - lovingly printed with authentic screengrabs of early versions of Netscape, Internet Explorer and (here's hoping) NCSA Mosaic.

And, to conclude the shopping theme, the UK's first GEEKIEST CARRIER BAG COMPETITION. The UK reputedly throws away 8 billion plastic bags every year, so rather than print up a load of new ones that will eventually end up as landfill, EXTREME COMPUTING is insisting that visitors bring their own - and the geekiest one wins a prize!

It's a technology trade show with a difference. It's...
