Product Information Disclaimer
A few things to keep in mind about the product information herein.
Consistency and Accuracy
I have made every effort to keep the product data contained herein
consistent with the printed materials that were handed out in
I have however not made any effort to verify the accuracy of the claims
made in the product literature.
For example if someone states that
they have the lowest price on something, then that exhibitor's product
report will state that they have the lowest price on that thing. A
careful reader may find one or two cases where these product claims
are contradictory between the various exhibitor reports.
Phrasing and Point of View

possible to acquire price information on all products.
With many software and service products, prices are hard to come
by. This seems to be because
- The prices are so high as to be embarassing. No point in scaring
off consumers; if you have to ask you can't afford it anyway.
- The price depends on who you are and how willing you are to
Both of these effects are less true in the PC and Macintosh software
world. For those sorts of products, price information was easy to
come by and vendors were quite forward about it.
