Retweeted by Michael Burgstahler"Have you ever kissed a girl?" http://t.co/Wtq3bfPxrw@edbott Interesting you'd say that. I routinely see more German reports on AAPL/MSFT/GOOG/FB events/conferences in print/TV than for IFA.@edbott I don't see these to be related. IFA isn't an event that garners public attention anymore. Very few articles in mainstream media.@edbott Germany has been plastered with them practically everywhere for about a week.
