One of the most important computer trade shows in the world, Computex in Taiwan, and a personal favourite of mine, is in danger of being cancelled or postponded as late as September of this year because of the growing SARS threat in Asia.

The threat to us seems like it is being blown a little out of proportion and we are still making plans to attend just as previous years if the event organisers go ahead.

THE TAIWANESE PRESS is reporting that a massive 70% of exhibitors have decided they're just not going to go to the Computex show this June.Today's Economic News claims that those figures have soared since last week, when only 18% of exhibitors said they wouldn't attend.But industry giants including Acer, Asustek, IBM, Hewlett Packard and Microsoft have indicated they're not going to attend, if the show starts as scheduled in early June.
