Another conference yields to COVID-19: Computex 2020 postponed
First technology conference that was cancelled in 2020 due to the novel coronavirus was Mobile World Congress more than a month ago. Ever since, one gathering and conference after another have postponed or postponed.

In addition to MWC in the tally we've got Google and Microsoft developer conferences, gaming conference E3, and of course Apple's own WWDC among others.

Now one of the largest computer conferences, Computex, has decided it would be in their, and their quests', best interest to not have their annual gathering in June. Computex 2020 isn't cancelled, however. Instead, the organizers have postponed it until coming fall.

According to them, Computex 2020 will be held in Taipei, Taiwan on Semptember 28, nearly three months after it's original June 2 date.

It will be interesting to see whether manufacturers are willing to postpone their product launches until later date, or if they decide to do it without the help of the conference.
