So I am a bit behind on what has been happening at CES over in the states the last few weeks. I have to admit I was feeling completely underwhelmed by the whole thing and had been ignoring it. (Mostly because I wanted it to happen over here I think). Anyhow I got over it and started watching the various video streams of it; I am now feeling very impatient. (you can see one of the feeds here)
Have you heard of the Palm windows phone? It is called the Treo 700W, but when is it coming over to England? Why have the UK networks not picked it up yet? One guy at Orange had the nerve to tell me that their M500 phone was better. It runs Windows Mobile 4 and last time I used one it crashed all over the place. Why not a Treo 650? I may end up having that instead, I just like the integration possibilities with the 700 â€“ assuming it loves up to my imagination 😉
As for that wraparound desktop screen bill was using â€“ who is looking at manufacturing them? When? Would it not be easier and more efficient to be positioned like an easel? Or is that bad for posture?
Onto Windows Vista. I love the search functionality inside it. Of course it is just desktop search integrated into the OS. I hope its not as memory intensive as the desktop search programs out there today â€“ much as I love them; I have had to uninstall them. I hate unresponsive systems (it is one of the reasons I still donâ€™t use Firefox). I wonder if you could for contacts using it â€“ and the have the ability to right click and email/im/call them. That would be cool. Also having the online messenger contacts in the sidebar means I never have to have a separate messenger client. One place for all my communication 🙂
[update] cleaned up fonts (again) tried (!) to clean up the quality of the text a bit 🙂
