    By 7 September 2011

    Haier used its stand at IFA to show off some future technologies. It demonstrated gesture control on one device, which looked like something of a pour cousin to Kinect or the original Sony PlayStation Eye Toy. Of more interest, perhaps, was their mind...

    Apple didn't bother getting Samsung to remove the Y and Y pro handsets from its IFA stand - it must not think they are as big a deal as the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7, which was pulled from IFA following a new injunction. And, if we're honest - they're not...
