Windows Phone 7

A year ago Microsoft decided its Windows Mobile platform was not good enough; it decided to scratch the whole platform and start afresh to better compete in the smartphone market.  Sure Windows Mobile was a breakthrough product when it came out, but it relied on technologies of yesterday that in all honestly gave Microsoft no other option.


Microsoft helps evolve gaming!

Gaming is being evolved thanks to Microsoft's XNA Game Studio.  For the first time, amateur developers can create games and put them on a gaming console, Microsoft's Xbox 360.  Also announced is the future capability to bring such games to the Zune, a portable media player.


New Zune

The new Zunes proves Microsoft can do things right.  The original Zune™, a portable audio player, launched in November 2006 and had a 30GB Hard Disk Drive (HDD).  The new Zunes which arrive in November 2007 will include a 4GB and 8GB Flash Memory Model and a larger 80GB HDD Model.


Console Wars Heat Up!

The three consoles are still in it for the long run, but the Console Wars have just heated up!  The Microsoft Xbox 360 still in lead at around 12 million consoles sold worldwide!  Nintendo's Wii sits at around 9 million consoles and Sony's PlayStation3 at around 4 million consoles.  But now both Sony and Microsoft have change their lineup and prices in effort to draw more customers into the battle.


Revolutionary Phone?

Windows Vista More Secure

Windows Vista is more secure than other modern operating systems according to new research.  Security expert Jeff Jones released a report comparing the first six months of several recent operating systems.  What suprised me most was how well Windows XP also did compared to various flavours of Linux and Apple's OS X.
