Review: HTC HD2 raises the bar for Windows Mobile devices

While Windows Mobile fans like myself are very pleased with the HTC Touch Pro2 there hasn't been as much excitement around a Microsoft smartphone as we have seen with the HTC HD2 for quite some time. People are enthusiastic about its release due to the 1GHz Snapdragon processor, capacitive display, large 4.3 inch 480x800 high resolution display, multi-touch support in the browser and photo viewer, and Windows Mobile 6.5 operating system. We also know that the HD2 will eventually be coming to a major US wireless carrier, but who that carrier is going to be remains to be seen. I have been using it as my primary device for the past week and wanted to give you some more details to enjoy over the Thanksgiving weekend as I now have experiences with many of those topics I mentioned in my first impressions article.

iWork '08 - no Office killer 'cause it's not supposed to be

I picked up a copy of iWork '08, the new update to Apple's productivity suite, the other day and have been noodling around in it since I installed it on my MacBook and my wife's iMac. It's a worthy upgrade for two principal reasons in my opinion: the significant improvements made to Pages (document processor) and the addition of Numbers, a new layout-oriented spreadsheet application. I'm not going to do a full, feature-by-feature review here – there's plenty of those already on the tubes. I just want to address the notion that this signals some throwing down of a gauntlet by Apple in front of Microsoft. It doesn't.

What will many cores mean to future Windows releases?

Windows and existing Microsoft programming languages work just fine with one- to four-processor PCs. But when 8- 16 and 64-core client machines become the norm -- in the not-so-distant future -- will Windows, C#, Visual Basic and other Microsoft applications be able to keep up?
