I really like Microsoft and haven't used an Apple Product since a Lisa blew up on me in 1984 or so, but I do admire Steve Job's efforts and success. I never got into Apple, as I started as an Embedded system designer, did simulations on a CRAY computer and then Lotus Notes followed by my current job at Microsoft, Apple products have never been a big deal to me. However, the article reporting the cancellation of Macworld had an advertisement for the Zune from Microsoft. I hope this isn't a sign of something...
To see how Steve Jobs got started, he was one of the creators of the arcade game "Breakout", wow! The story is related on the XNAProjects.net
Have a great day, and Happy New Year!
