David Pogue Looks Back at 2006

| Comments

David Pogue has an article in the NY Times today about some of the technological highlights of the year. I find it interesting how much he hates Windows and Windows Mobile, as shown here:

The turkeys of the year: Microsoft’s Ultra Mobile PC computers (too big to be palmtops and too stripped-down to be PCs — and no keyboard); Verizon’s balky Chocolate cellphone; and, thanks to its idiotically inefficient software, the Motorola Q phone.

I have to protest about the supposed usability of the Motorola Q. I think it’s a fantastic phone (as is the new T-Mobile Dash, which I just picked up last Friday. There are certainly issues with it; I won’t ignore that, but I think that the usability of Windows Mobile 5 is significantly better than what you will find with the Moto Razr, for instance.
