Here at CTIA, Sierra Wireless and Cingular Wireless have announced that they will be releasing the AirCard 875. The AirCard 875 is a 3G LaptopConnect card and also the first HSDPA 3.6 Mbps network card in America. The new AirCard will allow Cingular customers to have a mobile broadband connection in over 100 countries. The card will be retailing for $99.99 (after rebate) when Cingular customers sign up for a two-year unlimited DataConnect contract ($59.00). Not too bad of a deal if you’re always on the go.

    Microsoft is a platform company. The web is currently the dominant platform. Web applications need to be able to run across many different clients and devices. That requires universal standards. Mesh and Silverlight are attempts to define a client that Microsoft can maintain control of as they currently do not control HTML and Javascript. That’s only going to work if these MS technologies can replace what we now call a web browser. Microsoft was not able to force OOXML on the industry when Office rules the desktop so I find it hard to believe that they still have the clout and the means to co-opt web standards.

      “I find it hard to believe that they still have the clout and the means to co-opt web standards.” –You are not alone: many, many other IT pundits and small, irrelevant players have ‘anticipated’ the demise of Microsoft for a long time, just to end up looking like the fools they are when it does not happen.
      Just like them, you are in denial –please, make the effort to come down to reality. Microsoft is the largest and most successful software company in the world.

    “Bill Gates has been thinking so far out ahead for so long…”

    That’s a good chuckle.

      Yet another ignorant comment from yet another stupid and uninformed troll……

      See, this is another fool flapping his irrelevant lips… Yeah, talk is very, very cheap, particularly when you have no clue.

    I can’t stand Steve Ballmer. Bill Gates is ok. MS is trying to monopolize everywhere they can.

    While the Google team has been on a roll the last few years defining what all corporations strive for in terms of innovation, one would be foolish to count MS out of the game. They have way too many smart people and piles of cash. The playing field will even out and MS will still be a competitive organization.

    I do think they will continue to lose major market share to Google in many areas especially MS Exchange. Google’s mail service is very impressive.

    Don’t count MS out yet

    there is censoring in the comments?

    From what I saw McCain did have some good points but radiated negativity. Whereas Obama radiated positivity Obama had 30 good insights for every one good point from his opponent. Obama just looked and acted professional, cool and presidential. McCains did the usual mud slinging and it did nothing but make Obama look mature. McCain hemmed and hawed on questions and Obama hit them square out of the park.

    I would say no contest.

    The same could be said for Google/Microsoft. When Microsoft/Ballmer stop with the negativity and focus on creativity. Stop with the idea of destroying MS’s enemies which is such an old paradigm. George Bush is stuck there. War on drugs, war on terror, always out to get the evil doers. Leading by creating fear. If Bush had put the 2 trillion dollar surplus left by Clinton into developing technologies and inspiring people like Google is doing the US and the world would not be in the financial meltdown you see today. A different tack is needed by nations and companies.

    I would like to see Microsoft change in one simple way. They want to take business from other companies. MS should start by adopting Google’s strategy of being and doing as much good as possible.

    Relationships are based on giving (not taking). MS is not evil but it would be great if they could focus more on giving, being constructive and creative like Google does.

    Life is short why not focus on creating a better world.

      If you think Google does good – well meet the new boss baby – worse than the old boss – because this one (google) is watching your every move.
