Digital life goes chubbier...

For several early Jans, we have been used to Jobs and Gates clashing with words in the west, and it was all but an heavyweight fight: then, after Steve Ballmer's Keynote address at CES 09, and Philip Shiller's opening talk at Macworld 2009, it looks like the digital age is putting up weight ;) . I would give just a C+ to Shiller (he would have needed help from the team, but green batteries and tagging faces on iphoto had not been enough...), and a C to Ballmer and his over-sized gang (Windows 7 just tries to mimic functions already implemented in Leopard, and Live Search is trailing on localization features and functions). But, in the end, both looked like a sign of the times: is pervasive computing going to make all of us plumper? Let's just keep on Wiiing, at least... ;)
