  • new products?

    What new MicroSoft products did Ballmer announce? He did show three
    products from other companies. One only plays videos, one did seem to
    have a browser open and the HD product was a mock up with a static
    picture inside (you would have thought they would have centered the
    picture). Ballmer noted that the HP device was just slightly less portable
    then a phone but noticed that he had to use two hands to pick it up. Also
    had trouble imagining him putting it up to his ear to make a call. Well, I
    guess it would cut down on people using their phone while driving.
  • New Products... with Win7

    Good Job Microsoft. A full blown version of the OS, not like the iPad (a iPod touch on crack). Just think if Microsoft were to have wanted their Partners to use Windows Mobile 7 on those devices. Although still a lot more useful than the iPhone, iPod, iPad OS, think of the limits.

    Good Job Microsoft... and partners.
