I'm not even gonna try to play catchup on this one.
- Extended Daylight Savings Time came and went. There seemed to be a lot of people having issues with the numerous patches, but that was before the switchover. It didn't end up being the Y2K07 that most people made it out to be. Although I did hear that Chase Bank didn't update any of their computers, and ran into several problems.
- iMate Ultimate phones will have Vista SideShow support, WiFi TV streaming (codenamed "Snowbird"), as well as TV-out. That's awesome... but where's my "SoftSled"?
- Fast-tracking the ISO's OOXML standardization process not as widely-rejected as originally believed. Why am I not surprised?
- Gearlog says that Dell prepping CableCARD-ready XPS 410's. I was a DCT beta tester on the XPS 400, and it's been a great experience. [via Engadget]
- Microsoft finally released Windows Server 2003 SP2. [via Bink.nu]
- The Ultimate Extras team put out some more content for DreamScene. I sure hope the have cooler stuff than this planned for Ultimate Extras, or lots of people are going to feel gipped. [via TheWindowsVistaBlog]
- The original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arcade game hit Xbox Live today. I lost too many quarters to that game as a kid.
- Lenovo picks Windows Live services for new computers. Not quite as big as a Dell or an HP, but a win for Microsoft nonetheless. Now if they'd only articulate their Live strategy more clearly...
- Speaking of Live, Mary Jo thinks Microsoft uses the Live moniker too muchh. I think calling the new online gaming service Games for Windows Live was a bad move. It sounds more like Games for "Windows Live" than it does "Games for Windows" Live. They should have called it Xbox Live Anywhere or Xbox Live for Windows. That clearly articulates what it is.
- Ed Bott takes us back to 1999 and compares Vista to Windows 98. You would think that Microsoft might have learned from those mistakes. It's been 6 weeks since Vista's launch... hey guys: WHERE THE HELL ARE THE SALES NUMBERS?!?!
- LiveSide shows us Microsoft's video hyperlink demo. Personally, I don't like it. It's too hard to see where the link is, and more often than not, the target jumps around too much to click it. I'd rather have a rollover "Related Links" list.
A lot more happened in the last couple days, but plenty of other people have covered them. See you next time!
