Microsoft Windows 7 doesn't suck. It is a good update to XP and runs well on most PC that chocked on Vista. Vista took all the heat for missing drivers and such so Vista didn't have too.
Android looks like ti will be the Windows of smartphones. It is everywhere and soon will be available on on carriers.
Twitter has become the darling of the year. Now if they just figure out how to make money with it.
Google Chrome. It is fast and it works well. Yet another browser steps up and shows that choice is good.
Motorola is back. Motorola when from hero to zero and now back to hero thanks to the Droid. Keep pushing big M we need you
EBook readers. This is the dawning of the year of the EBook or not but they are everywhere.
The ZuneHD. Wow it is pretty and has a nice interface. It is a great media player and ZunePass makes it so tempting.
NetFlix streaming. It is on the XBox, Roku, PS3, and now showing up on BluRay players. Just too cool and too handy.
3D movies. I think they are here to stay
The Kodak Zi8. It is a better HD camcorder than the Flip and at under $200 is a bargain. Now anybody can shoot HD at 1080p. And you thought slid shows where bad! I will not get into the terror of amature HD pron that I suspect will soon be flooding the Internet. Still a win but one that should scare us all.
MindowsMobile. It has no mind share and looks like it will be the dull also ran of the smartphone world. Unless Microsoft does something mind blowing soon it should just walk away.
Nokia what are you doing? No really what are you doing? We have no idea and wonder if you do. Is the future S60 or Linux for you? Wait you came out with a netbook... Running WINDOWS?.
PSP Go or as many people call it PSP Go Away... Really it is more expensive than the PSP, you have no way to play your UMD games on it and games are showing first in UMD form and only latter
in the online store! Sony are you nuts?
The ZuneHD, wait that was a hit? Yes it was from a tech and design standpoint the problem is that nobody cares. It lacks an open app store like the iPod Touch does and frankly nobody really cares about it. The ZuneHD is a miss because it is just invisible. Microsoft if you had made it a phone with an open app store you would have knocked it out of the ball park.
Linux. I love Linux but it is still not doing it on the Desktop. Linux could have made huge inroads because Vista sucked and wouldn't run on netbooks. The first netbooks ran Linux but they sucked. They had a strange flavor of Linux. Had the Linux community gotten it's act together it could have really made headway. The number one problem is that it is hard to sell software for Linux. I still have hope. Folks this is what we need. A pretty and fast version of Linux. Might I suggest that it use QT embedded and ditch X or run X on top of QT embedded for programs that must use X. Next get an app store so people can buy and sell apps. Next It has to support Flash. Finally make a Smartbook that will run for hours on a battery charge supports HD video in hardware, looks good, and is under $350. It also must have an HDMI and and a ir port for a remote. Now make a deal with NetFlix, Blockbluster, and Amazon to sell download and streaming media on it. Yes I love Linux.
AT&T your ads suck. No really that you can surf the web while talking on your cell phone just isn't that big of a deal to most people. To the none techies they are going why would you ever do that? The techies all know it only works on your small 3G network and will not work on the much bigger edge network. It is a sad reply to the Verizon ads.
Comcast and AT&T. We are paying you to access the internet! WE THE CUSTOMERS THAT ARE PAYING WILL DECIDED WHAT SITES WE WANT TO GO TO! WE DO NOT WANT YOU SELL BETTER ACCESS TO ONE SITE BECAUSE WE ARE YOUR CUSTOMERS AND WE WANT EVERY SITE WE USE AND EVERY SERVICE WE USE TO BE AS FAST AS POSSIBLE!!!! WE AS A NATION HAVE GIVEN YOU BILLIONS OF DOLLARS FOR BROADBAND AND WE HAVE NOT GOTTEN IT! YOU SUCK AND WE HATE YOU!
The first politican that decided to go after the cable companies/broadband providers will go right to the Whitehouse. Nobody likes them and they charge way too much
FCC see the above post and what the heck are you dong letting Comcast buy a TV network? What the heck are you doing letting Comcast own the TV networks they already do!
Hulu. Why are you blocking Boxee and the PS3???? Because they hooked to your TV SET!!!! Yes Boxee got around it for now but really what the heck people! Hulu what are you doing taking down shows? You are doing so much so well but at the same time what are you thinking?
Google Wave. Maybe it will be great but right now?
Facebook. Yes you are flying high now but so was MySpace. Your privacy issues are getting scary and your customer base is fickle.
Nintendo. The Wii seems to be running out of steam. It is still a hit but what will come next? The DSi??? really what the heck? Will we see a Wii HD that can use our new cheap HDTVs or will you make an even bigger leap? The WiiHD 3D for those new 3D HD sets coming soon? Hey we already look like idiots swinging that controller around so the dorky glasses will not hurt. PS put Boxee on it!
So here is my list.
