I'm having a hard time considering what Microsoft would do to Office that would make me want to spend $200 to upgrade my copy. Now, if it came with a bunch of tools that would make it possible to work over the Internet with my friends who own Mac OS X and Linux machines, Microsoft would have something. But, I don't think they look at Office that way. Hey, this is the company that hasn't really improved NetMeeting in five years.
I'll get a double dose, too cause we're seeing it on Thursday and Friday nights. Whew. If my son wasn't totally addicted to Star Wars I'd give up on Lucas altogether.
Oh, great. Microsoft might buy another piece of my life. T-Online is the company that has wireless Internet access in Starbucks locations on the West Coast. I give them $10 a month.
Glad I waited to buy an Xbox.
Is it just me, but do most of the BigCo's in the Technology Business make you ill? Anyone read the latest stuff about how Microsoft is trying to control the Web Services market? Do you feel clean after reading that? I'm a Microsoft adherent (at the dinner last night I'm probably the only one who is a proud Windows XP user) but, even I must admit, I get disgusted with Microsoft's (and now Oracle's) behavior.
As a user I love getting new products. As a human being, I am disgusted.
We tried to get him to play it in the Apple store, but Bill Humphries talked us out of doing that (he plays an Apple HR guy on TV) cause his boss was in the store.
Dave almost bought an IPod and an IMac. I think he was tempted. Someone commented that he'll be the only one with a Windows machine at the Emerging Technology conference today.
Debbie, you got it all wrong. If you think blogging makes you cool, you got another thing coming.
What a dinner for a user to be at. I was between Faisal and Doc. I think my IQ went up 10 points last night. Of course, Spicy Noodles make you smarter just by themselves, so maybe that was it.
