I’m presently in Seattle attending Mobius with a group of 20-something other bloggers. I am not sure how much of the discussion will be NDA or open for posting, but I will update as possible…
One of the first things passed out this morning were Mobius branded Flip Video mino HDs. David seems to really like his, and I am looking forward to trying mine.
Quick observations from the morning’s presentations as they occur:
-There are 25 of us here, and I count 10 Macs, and of them at least four are MacBook Airs. Nice.
I don’t see any EeePcs this time, but they may be down the row from me and not visible.
-Interesting overview on Microsoft branding – and a question: How many people (other than us geeks) honestly pay attention to the OS that is driving their Mobile Phone? In other words, is it more about the hardware or is it more about the software? Your thoughts?
-We’re getting an overview on Windows 7 now. We’ve been promised eval copies when it comes out. Maybe I will load it on my Air…unless it feels too much like a Vista update…which right now it does.
Windows 7 looks like it will have easier home networking; something I feel that my Mac has nailed, but my PCs never did.
Several of us are worried that there isn’t much bring shown in the mobile device integration arena. Maybe we just haven’t seen it, yet?
I am trying to figure out where the pizazz and wow starts with Windows 7; nothing I have seen yet is what I consider a must have feature, and nothing is making me think that I should ditch OSX/XP…yet.
-I am slightly envious of the abandon Matt Miller has showed by plastering stickers all over his MacBook. I just don’t think I could do it to my Air, but it looks fun!
-the rest of the afternoon was spent in NDA discussions about the Windows Mobile roadmap.
