Very interesting article on the ups and downs in development of Macintosh operating system.
Although Jobs became “iCEO” in the summer of 1997, Apple acquired NeXT in late 1996 for what would become OS X, and got Jobs for free. It was the best deal the company has ever made. Just look at the numbers.

There is Acer Liquid too making waves, it runs on Android 1.6 powered by powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon processors. There is Dell too getting into smart phone business with their Android offering. But nothing is more tempting than the smart phone from the manufacturers of the the first practical mobile phones.

Does this AD make sense ? MAC vs PC yeah, but Vaio !!!
Sony Vaio is a PC isn’ it ? And whats that “the non-pc pc” !!!
