Sony's PS4 hits 10 Million

Sony was more than happy this week to announce that they've sold 10 Million PS4 consoles so far as they continue to outpace the competing Xbox One from Microsoft. Microsoft hasn't released any numbers recently but it is being reported that the PS4 could be ouselling the Xbox One by a margin of 3-to-1 in the past few months. The best part of the whole deal is that the fierce competition is great for consumers as we've already seen a price drop from Microsoft and chances are good that Sony will have to follow suit eventually which I doubt any will complain when they have to spend less money. The WSJ has the story.

 Sony Corp. said Tuesday it has sold 10 million PlayStation 4 videogame consoles to consumers, as the Japanese consumer electronics company continues to outpace Microsoft Corp. in the new console sales war.

The PlayStation 4's dominance over Microsoft's rival Xbox One console has been a hot topic in the videogames industry, which is gathering in large numbers in Cologne this week for the annual Gamescom conference.

The World's Best Mobile OS

The guys over at Digit have come up with test where they've looked at 1000 different parameters of mobile operating systems and try to come up with a winner in terms of usability and features. iOS and Android are obviously included and they've thrown in Windows Mobile and BlackBerry to round out the competition. 

Also included in the review is the ability to set weightings for the categories that you care about and you can figure out what OS is the perfect OS for you.

Head on over to Digit for the full article.

How do you determine what makes a good OS? What makes iOS vs. Android or Windows Phone vs. BB10, or any other such comparison not just about the fanboyism? Is it even possible to arrive at a scientific conclusion to this question? If we look at entire eco-systems, Android and iOS are obvious choices for buyers because of the sheer amount of apps they have available. However, what’s that got to do with an answer to the question, "What’s the best designed OS out of the box?"

What Steve Did at Microsoft

Jason and I have got into more than a few discussions as to what Steve Ballmer did at Microsoft other than be their "used car salesman" type of guy. In fact, the sweatervest guy actually wrote a few piece of code as well as the dialog for the Ctrl-Alt-Delete screen found in Windows 3.1. Well done Steve. Well done.

Since 16-bit Windows applications are co-operatively multi-tasked, it is easy to determine whether the system is responding, and if not, it is also easy to identify the application which is responsible. In that case, Windows gave you options to close the non-responsive application, restart the computer, or cancel.
