  • Chris Jones - Beta 1 of Windows Vista revealed

    Cool Video....but Windows Vista ?

    I think that name is terrible! I agree that is important that MS shift away from numbers and letters (98,2000,ME,XP) and towards a friendly marketable name (ala Tiger). I just don't know that "Vista" will resonate well with consumers. 

    Anyone else think they would have been better off shipping "Longhorn" as Longhorn?
  • Bill Hill - A Hike Around Microsoft's Forests (Happy Birthday Video #5)

    Who knew typography was so fascinating?

    I was so excited to see the new Bill Hill movie that I misread the running time to be a bit over 1 minute rather than a bit over an hour. What a pleasant surprise.

    Scoble...can you do me a favor - learn to talk a little less. I appreciate your enthusiasm but talking over Bill Hill is like blabbing on and on about the colors of the sunset when all we want to do is just soak it in.

    Once we get through that, maybe we can address your ADD. Every time something caught your eye, you would snap over to reveal a passing jogger or bicyclist - essentially cutting off the presenter mid-stream. 
    Let's try and F O C U S!

    Don't get me wrong - I think the Ch9 team does a great job...just don't disrespect Bill. Either of 'em.
