Even here in Kashgar, the possibly most remote town in China from Beijing in the very far south-west, upcoming Beijing 2008 is omnipresent mainly due to the merchandising efforts by its sponsors. Lenovo has appearantly even changed its product logo, now featuring the five-ringed Olympic emblem on every sold computer.
