PC World Podcast 37: Windows 7, Apple's "Premium Computer" Dominance, and Digital Pens
This week on the PC World Podcast, editors Tim Moynihan, Robert Strohmeyer, Nick Mediati, and Ed Albro discuss the just-finalized Windows 7 operating system. It promises to be more netbook-friendly and less annoying than Vista, as well as touchscreen-optimized. Learn when it may be installed on a computer near you, and find out what's different in the new Microsoft OS.
Also on this week's show, a recent study claimed Apple enjoys a 91 percent share of the "premium computer" market. The gang's a little split on whether this statistic actually means anything, and they're not sure whether the definition of a "premium computer" is clear. Hear their take on the podcast.
And finally, keyboards, mice, and touchscreens aren't the only input devices available. We've recently reviewed a few digital pens, and the latest one we've seen--Adapx's Capturx for Microsoft Office OneNote--is a great product. Find out what a digital pen actually is, and learn about similar digital pens available now.
