First Windows “Mango” Phone Unveiled

Leave a comment

Windows has essentially been pushed out of the smart phone market by Apple and Droid.  Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer said “We’ve gone from small to very small…”. With Wednesday’s announcement of a new OS “Mango” Microsoft plans to jump back into the market. Even if it’s great the name lacks appeal.  IMHO – I don’t see myself saying “I’ve got to get me a Mango!”.

Swiping a credit card with your camera?

Basically what this new software does is allow your webcam to scan in the number on your card and registers it automatically over a secure connection.  It keeps you from having to type in the number and mistype it, repeat.   I’m curious whether you get the card swiped rate from the bank or no card rate.

I think these articles give a different perspective on patents and how they are being used.  Somehow, I feel compelled to say that I am not endorsing these articles as factual only that I found them to be interesting reading.

The following video is CNBC talking to Governor Mead about Wyoming and the state of our economy. It’s a great overview and Governor Mead does a nice job fielding a variety of tough questions.  It’s well worth a listen regardless of which side of the aisle you are on.

Note: he talks about technology growth around the one minute and forty second mark.
