You guys can talk about something other than Apple/Google

Let's talk about how sorry Vista is. Or how we have not seen a killer PC product in 10 years. Why don't you go a month without talking about Apple or Google. Then you can cut your podcast down to the determinable lenght of 5 minutes. Just think of all the bandwidth that you will save.

problem with that logic

In reply to: You guys can talk about something other than Apple/Google

Problem with that logic, is everything in the computer world isnt about a Single new breakthrough product.

There are new processors, motherboard setups, cooling systems, video cards etc etc etc etc that come out EVERY DAY.

there isnt a PC equivalent unless Microsoft decided to build a phone that was worth a crap. I own three of the windows mobile phones and i hate them all.

An operating system is just that. An OS. That is about the BIGGEST news will get in the PC world that people would care to talk about. Or maybe the next big game or whatever.

It all boils down to, there are not any big revelations going on that normal mediocre people would like to hear about.

That is why BOL talks about the things people WANT to hear about. Majority wins, not the minority.

I Like AmiPro

Sure it's spell checking sucks compared to everone else but they were the best Windows word processor back in their day. That was what, 1991? While I'm on that topic I think Lotus Development, Ashton Tate, and Word Perfect Corp should have merged and issued an Office Suite and they should have got on the Windos and Unix Bandwagon. Yeah it's 20/20 hindsight but dominatinating Windows today and still being their own company while poised for linux would have been something.
