This week in review: Iphone, Windows Vista, Home Server oh my!!! January 16, 2007Posted by rjdohnert in Tech News.
For this week I have been so busy I decided to do a rollup of the weeks events. First lets start with CES, which I think was the better show this week. We got a really indepth look at Windows Vista. A lot of which puts OS X and rival companies offerings off the porch. With features like that I think this is probably one of the better Windows releases in a little while. At CES you had a fair share of new companies showing off some drop dead gorgeous and functional devices. One of the announcements was Windows Home Server, Home Server will surely be a hit with the extreme techy crowd but the average household will probably hold off.
Macworld. While everyone is so impressed with the iPhone, Im not. It does nothing new that my SmartPhone doesnt do. Its made by Apple; WOW!!! If Apple doesnt reasonably price the phone it will probably flop. Of course, reasonably priced, is not in Apples vocabulary. Apple changed its name to Apple Inc. which shows they are starting to expand to new markets. No new news on any new Macs, iPods or Leopard. The show seemed kind of bland to me. For me it lacked the excitement of Macworlds long past.
So while Apple may have stole the show on Tuesday, CES really shined and really outdid Apple this time around.
