    Sony VAIO VGX-TP1DT Roomba PC


    As Biggs and I roamed the floors of CES, we laid eyes on this peculiar looking PC from Sony being featured in some sort of webcast.

    I’ve used Windows Vista. I hate Windows Vista. I believe it’s a bloated, copy-cat of an operating system that does more to impress Microsoft’s stock holders than it does to address the legitimate concerns and complaints of unfortunate Windows users.
