"Windows 7" In Sight


                     Though Microsoft claims strong sales of Windows Vista, not many technology journalists are believers. The biggest reason is all of the comments journalists are receiving in their posts online. Many people are feeling the pain of incompatibilities and annoyances of Windows Vista, so much so that they are either reverting back to Windows XP, or switching to the Mac. Those who do have Windows Vista seem to be either technology experts who have been "forced" to learn it, or computer newbies, who don’t seem to care and are simply putting up with it.

                     As far as the internet goes, users are constantly voicing their dislike for Vista. It’s to the point that tech journalists are racing to find out what’s happening with the next version of Windows, which currently has the dull title of "Windows 7". It is already being speculated that many features of Windows Live will be included, as well as other features, possibly available on a subscription basis.

                     There is always a great deal of controversy surrounding computer operating systems. One thing remains clear, though, for a product to be successful in the long run, it survives on user-experience (as constantly touted by Leo Laporte). If your customer gets P.O.’d with using your software, it doesn’t matter how secure or pretty it is, most users will go back to what they’re used to or switch to a different product. This is likely a big reason why the Mac is expected to have 12% market share within a couple of years (already exists with laptops).

Vantage Point Movie Review

I just finished watching the movie "Vantage Point". The format is interesting. Two thirds of the movie is the same event from the point of view of different people who at the same event, which gets tiring the 5th or 6th time, though the last 20 minutes is jam packed with gun fights and an impressive car chase! I’ve heard the car chase from "Bourne Ultimatum" was one of the most complicated ones ever done. I beg to differ. There is major star power, including Dennis Quaid, Sigourney Weaver, and William Hurt. The plot and storyline are solid, and the characters are well developed.

In most movies, we see a scene once and never really come to appreciate what it takes to put it together. Since the same scene is repeated from many points of view, we as the viewer really come to appreciate every aspect of it. As they say, "it’s all in the details". It’s true.
