Apple and Microsoft: CES and Mac World Expo

Posted in Apple, iPhone, Microsoft, Random Thoughts, SideShow, Video, Vista, Windows Home Server, Windows Live by amonteiro on January 9, 2007

I’m tired of people saying that Vista/Microsoft has copied Apple. My argument has always been that these things are immaterial in the big picture. Do you hear Microsoft fans yelling “they copied” after Stevo’s keynote today, ok maybe you do :). The browse CD’s feature on iTunes and Apple TV work awfully similar to Microsoft’s offerings.

In light of this sentiment, heres a list of what I found inovative from both Microsoft and Apple Inc. (formerly known as Apple Computer, Inc.) over the last few days.

Microsoft

  1. 3D map images on live maps
  2. SideShow (here is some of what can be done with it – MCE remotes, external displays on laptop bags)
  3. IPTV
  4. Windows Home Server (Here are some video’s if you are interested in learning more – Channel9, on10)

Apple

  1. iPhone (Does everything you could possibly want from a phone, PDA, mp3 player… and it sure looks pretty too – launch video)

Update: Lots of iPhone pictures here…
