Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 thoughts

As you all know, I am a big fan of Apple products. However, with the coming launch of Windows 8 together with Windows Phone 8 I am starting to reconsider my gadget life.

It all started specially with the launch of Outlook.com when I had more contact with the so called "Metro" user interface that Microsoft is introducing now also to all their online services. I was surprise how responsive, simple but at the same time productive user experience they have achieved. I did also install Windows 8 preview in my MacBook Air using Virtual Box and got a very good impression as well.

From Apple side, iOS is starting to lack behind in some aspects like social network integration for instance, even though in iOS6 some new features will be introduced. Somehow I have the feeling that Apple is not innovating anymore, it is just iterating the operating system without any big changes.

Windows new user interface is so refreshing and I might consider to move to Windows "world" if Apple does not release anything interesting during this autumn.

This is only my opinion and I am welcome to hear all your comments. Please feel free to add comments to the post as well as contact me on twitter.

Until then keep enjoying your gadgets ;-)

Slow summer

Hi all! This has been a slow summer. I haven't had time to do any review nor any CSS3 themes as I have been busy at work and at home. I hope this autumn I am able to take over and start writing again new reviews.
