Woo hoo. Tom Brokaw’s going to host Microsoft’s Windows 2008 launch aka the “Heroes Happen Here” on February 27. Brokaw, besides his long-time NBC anchor gig, wrote “the Greatest Generation.” Get the connection? A server operating system is analogous to World War II vets. Yeah, I can see it now.
Speaking of the big show, one blogger/windbag, who shall go nameless, wrote that a preview of something that will be shown in February actually moved him to tears. What technology could possibly induce sobs (other than the boot-up agony that is Vista)? Who knows and he can’t/won’t say.
That begs the question: Why open his yap at all? The answer: Because he can’t help himself.
