    Wow. I love when people get excited about the 'new' features in Vista. CNET recently put up this First Look at Vista Ultimate. There's a 'new' feature in Vista I hadn't previously heard of, he calls it 'Blue Virtual Folders'. Or in other words, Smart Folders.

    If you want to see a fun video about Vista, go to CBS News and click on the video link (at the right) that says "Copycat Clash". David Pogue gives CBS a nicely smug interview in which he points out how un-original Vista is.

    (This isn't the Pogue video that's been around for a bit, either. This is something new.)

    I'll never understand why Microsoft chose the name Sidebar for it's new wi.. gadget area. For any PC techs out there, you know what I'm talking about.

    For the rest of you, Sidebar is and older form adware on XP. Let's hope it doesn't run on Vista, otherwise there will be some confusion in the near future!

    It sounded to me like they read MS promo materials... aside from when they mentioned that their test laptop's hard drive didn't meet Microsoft's standards (for allowing the hard drive to be encrypted).

    LOL, that was great. I hadn't seen that one before. I wonder if it made it to television or if it was web-only?

    Yeah, it's too bad that wasn't broadcast nationwide on CBS. :D

    Heh, that was my first thought as well - although in this case it might just be appropriate...:rolleyes:
