Reasons To Remind....

Posted on Saturday, January 9, 2010 | No Comments

The Consumer Electronics Show (CES), at the very start of every year has always interested me - the presentation and amalgamation of a whole years worth of work from all of the very biggest and some of the very smallest electronic and technology companies.

Last years device that captured me was the Palm Pre - and I waited almost a whole year to get my hands on one - and reading some of the improved features coming along to the Pre that were discussed at CES this year, its renewed my belief that this phone was worth waiting for.

Also last year Windows 7 was launched - and if you happened to read my top 5 technologies of 2009, you will know that the new Microsoft Operating System was on that list and I value it very highly. I've had it installed on my laptop and Media Centre PC for some time now and I know I'm only scratching the surface of just what it is capable of.

Even so, its easy to forget sometimes - especially for me, who works with older incarnations of Microsoft products every day that their products are sometimes aren't as perfect as we'd all like to believe. But watching the latest KeyNote from Microsoft at CES this year, has reminded me just how far Microsoft has moved so many vertical markets along; computing in the home and work space, gaming, entertainment, social media, music, internet connectivity, and so much more.

If you have an hour and half to spare, I urge you to go make yourself a coffee now, turn up the sound, click play on the following video, open it up to full screen and sit back and watch and be amazed just how much Microsoft is still part of the technology scene and the vast coverage of devices and markets they touch - its then that you really do realise just why Apple are no where near them in terms of their computing/technological efforts. It also reminds why Google, despite their ventures into new markets are still so far behind in some respects and how Microsoft have responded to things like search, maps and video.

Sit back and I hope you enjoy as much as I did.....
