PC World announced the best 100 products for 2005. The top 3: Firefox, Gmail, and Mac OS X Version 10.4 (Tiger).
Microsoft was mentioned once. Number 47. For Windows Media Player 10. Apple iTunes was Number 37.
No xbox 360 on their top 100 list which is a bit of a surprise to me. I guess that’s because no one can buy one. Even Steve Ballmer, Microsoft’s chief executive officer, can’t get one. Ballmer’s children have yet to get an xbox 360. Sarbanes-Oxley rules prevent Ballmer from getting a free console so he has to get out and line up like the rest of us. The shortages are expected to continue for months.
I told Steve that he could always drop by my place if he would like to play the xbox 360.
