The Microsoft ad for the new tablet really seems to highlight an image problem Microsoft has with its advertising.  I was really impressed with the ad, until the Window’s start screen flashes onto the screen.  The soft colours feels like such a huge contrast to the dark ‘raw’ feel of the ad.

They are finally trying to bridge their hardware and software into a single product, but fail to harmonize their products’ image.  If their going to develop more Window’s 8 hardware, they need to treat Windows and their tablets as a single product.

Will The Next Generation Use Websites?

My 15 month old daughter is already able to navigate around my iPad. It’s fascinating to watch her learn from my direction, but also from her own “try and fail” learning method.

She can watch her Wiggles videos on YouTube or open her baby apps to find animals. I’ll help her through some things, but she is getting much better at using the home button to restart herself if she gets lost.

I realized today, however, that she never sees a website. I wonder if she’ll ever use one… Will it be as backwards to her as a record player is to me? It seems ridiculous to think, but from her perspective, will the browser user experience just seem too “old”?
