This week marked the end of both the Democratic and Republican national conventions. Sure, there were speeches made and all that good stuff, but we had our eye on who took better advantage of the technology available.
Google made headlines by launching Chrome, its shiny new browser. We dig it, though we're wondering if Google really does. The company-turned-verb isn't the only one confused, either: check out Microsoft's bewildering push for Vista using shoes and churros. We also saw two contenders to the iThrone: one a solid phone by Nokia, the other, a plain ol' scooter. Yeah, think Vespas.
