David Pogue, technology columnist for the New York Times, has written a review of the past 12 month from a techno-geekis point of view. From the birth and death of Net Appliances to the oh-so-cute Aibo, Mr. Pogue gives a blow by blow look at consumer technological highlights in 2001. Better yet, from the Mac perspective, Mr. Pogue praises what he sees coming from Apple. From the NY Times piece:
With all the hoopla about Windows XP, it is easy to forget that there is another good-looking, super-stable operating system gaining popularity: Appleis Mac OS X.
He also likes the iPod:
Appleis iPod is a spectacular music player. It holds 130 CDs worth of music in a white-acrylic-and-mirror-finish player not much bigger than a box of Tic Tacs. No MP3 player offers this capacity in anywhere near such a small size, especially not with 12 hours of battery life.
