+ - Wii's destiny fullfilled as the new market leader

Submitted by Xlipse
Xlipse (669697) writes ""Video Game Chartz" (http://www.vgchartz.com/) issued a press release today laying claim to the Wii as being the new top dog in the console market.

From the press release: "Two years ago, very few analysts would have predicted the Nintendo Wii would be market leader this generation against the established Playstation and Xbox brands. But analysts can be in error: Vgchartz.com data, which is based on sample data from retailers all over the world indicates that the week ending August 23rd Nintendo's Wii (which was released one year after the Xbox 360 in November 2006), currently standing at 10.57 million consoles sold, passed Xbox 360 lifetime sales of 10.51 million units, making Nintendo the new market leader in both the home and handheld videogame console businesses.""

+ - Has Apple become a vaporware producer?

MrPerfekt writes "I am a giant Apple fan, but with the recent Apple TV delay and complete lack of information about the release of Leopard, I think this is a fair question. The iPhone is still months off as well. Apple has been somewhat out of character the past year telling us about products that are in development in the first place but it highlights the fact that they haven't released anything groundbreaking in a while. Instead, we only seem to get tastes of what's to come. I think this is minorly intensified by the fact that Macintoshes now use Intel processors. We can see the Intel roadmap and what is due to be released when and can eagerly anticipate a future Apple release that may be a while off. So, is Apple now in the unenviable position of being a company that gets us excited about future products that may not show up for a long time, if at all?"
