I finally watched the new MS commercial "Laptop Hunters - Lauren" TV commercial, the tagline: "On a strict $1000 budget, Lauren hunts around town for a big screen laptop."While mostly true (the only only 17-inch Apple notebooks cost $2,000-$2,800) the ads don't take into consideration the Windows notebook's Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

I just passed 10 days of iPhone ownership after waiting in line for 24 hours and then posting my first and second impressions of the device. I was quite excited about the iPhone after finding out that the AT&T data plan was reasonably priced and gave it an honest evaluation. Although the iPhone is priced the same as high end smartphones, I tried to resist comparing it to the Windows Mobile and S60 operating systems since they blow the iPhone out of the water in terms of functionality and the iPhone is more of a high end feature phone with iPod functionality. So looking at it as a high end feature phone, I have to say the iPhone falls flat when it comes to mobile phone functionality and features. The free mobile phone you get when you sign up with your carrier has more functionality and performs better as a phone than the iPhone.

Reading the news via the handy (though often-ignored) AvantGo on my Pocket PC recently, I encountered an advertisement for a white paper from Microsoft offering a case study on costs of ownership for Linux versus Windows.

But Linux vendors dispute Microsoft's claim that Windows is a better bet than open source for issues like security and total cost of ownership
Windows beats Linux in total cost of 'ownership.' Hold on, that's not a good thing.
The court case between Microsoft and desktop Linux-maker Lindows.com, over Microsoft's ownership of the word 'windows', has been delayed for at least another three months.
Under the guise of reducing total cost of ownership (TCO) in a tough economic environment, technical staffs are recommending replacement of Windows with Linux on their servers. This is based on the flawed assumption that because Linux is "free" it will re
