What would have shown off the industries latest and greatest better than changing the venue to the Worlds First Teleconferenced MWC ?
Yeah, I know better, but I just couldn't keep my fingers of the keyboard.
Good news for anyone who fancies a cheap vacation in Spain at the end of the month: this year's MWC Barcelona has been officially cancelled. Organizing body the GSMA confirmed on Wednesday it will pull the plug on the show – the cellphone industry's largest event globally – following mass cancellations from vendors worried …

Or should I actually read the book before jumping to (correct) conclusions?
I once picked up an infection at KBIS (I'm sorry, I'm a bit low rent) which was the worst respiratory infection I ever had. My immune system kicked off massively and (don't read this if you are sensitive) I had to depart the stand every hour in search of a bathroom to disgorge quantities of green snot.

Green snot? Amateur. I managed to pick up H1N1 swine flu during the 2009 pandemic and generated a constant stream of orange snot for maybe two weeks. However, I'm still unsure which of the unpleasant symptoms were down to the virus and which were down to the medication it was being treated with (Tamiflu). I'm certainly putting the crippling headaches and the appearance of ducks waddling around on my landing and Angelina Ballerina in my bathroom down to the Tamiflu.
