the year that was 2010

Here's the review of 2010:

QuickTime: The Year That Was
(Click the screen shot above to watch the video clip)
Sorry, it is a bit long, and not the news Don cares.

Well, to keep Don happy, there's Don-interested news:

Microsoft began the year with the launch of Azure, Microsoft's platform for cloud computing.
Microsoft released Kin (mobile phone) in May, then by the end of June (to Don's dismay), Microsoft decided to pull it from the market.
Internet Explorer 9 beta released in September with great HTML 5 support.
(Don's approved) Windows Phone 7 (operating system for Windows mobile phone) finally released in October.
While Don does not like Wii's Remote control or PS3's Move, Don is pleased with Kinect for Xbox 360 - the motion sensor from Microsoft for video gaming.

As for the Apple news Don hates, Apple made quite a number of headlines in 2010.

The year started with the announcement of iPad, and finally released in USA in April, and released in selected international countries in late May. Antony got an iPad (64GB, 3G version). Then, Apple announced the iPhone 4, but second tier countries were scheduled to release iPhone 4 in late July, and the poor Antony got an iPhone 4 (32GB).
Apple's Developer Program gets a big price cut.

iOS 4, then iOS 4.2 released for iPhone and iPad, AirPrint and AirPlay are the new highlights. iTunes is now iTunes 10 with Ping social networking.

Safari 5 also released with extension support, everybody can create extension for Safari.

New Apple TV released in late September, and new iMac released with Intel Core i3, i5, and i7 processors, Mac Pro also upgraded to maximum 12-Core, and Apple discontinued 24-inch LED Cinema Display with 27-inch LED Cinema Display. An even smaller MacBook Air is released with even light and more portable 11-inch configuration.

(the 12-Core Mac Pro is really fast, and the 27-inch LED Cinema Display is really awesome)

Apple's subscribed service MobileMe gets even better with new Calendar and better sharing. iLife'11 also released.

Let's hope for a bright new year.

more December 2010 blogs. (or 2010 blogs)
from iTunes Store:
You left out that the Rev. Dr. Wu Yi, got an iMac after much kicking and screaming, and was dragged into the 21st Century, computer-wise anyway!

Sorry, that was another major event of the year.

You can stop making baseless assumptions about my preferences now, thank you.

Well, we've chatted for years...

Happy New Year! Another post which mentioned your name several times - yay! Do you think that Antony has posted an entry on this blog that didn't mention you in recent times?
Happy New Year to all

In recent times? I'm honestly not sure - Antony seems to have started dropping my name quite often ever since I stopped chatting with him almost nightly (due to being busy, not lack of wanting to talk to him).

Sadly DON, his life does not have a great colour spectrum.

Happy new year

Each moment in a day has its own value.
Morning brings HOPE,
Afternoon brings FAITH,
Evening brings LOVE,
Night brings REST,
Hope you will have all of them everyday.
