Hardware, Embedded Systems Ah, NVIDIA's CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang. This guy is usually to the point, and doesn't sugar-coat his words, so interviews with him are generally good stuff to read. This time around, he had Intel and Apple down his sights. The iPad's A4 processor doesn't measure up to his company's Tegra 2, and Intel's Z6 Moorestown is not competitive in any way. At least, that's what he claims.

My mum was able to get her iPod going, and get iTunes songs on it... in a few minutes, without me helping her or hand holding.

That is revolutionary IMHO. It is not "geek porn" tech revolutionary. But most people don't care what the heck is going on under that shiny LCD screen as long as it does what they bought the device for: taking their media with them.

Well, I know some people who learned how to use their mp3 players in about the same time, without even requiring the previous iTunes usage knowledge that your mother obviously had.

1/Plug pen drive in.
2/Move music to pen drive through drag and drop, just like you move any other file to a pen drive (even if you don't know how to use a pen drive, which is highly unlikely, annoying popups from windows help you in the task).
3/Unplug pen drive.
4/Use standard VCR-like controls, just like on the cassette player of the stereo.

Now come on ! A multimedia player easier than iPod ! Is it revolutionary ? Not at all. Multimedia pen drives have been out for ages now. It's just the right tool for the right...

Then, there's the notion of knowing about the right tool, yeah. That's where marketing, one of Apple's strong points, comes on the scene. But on the fair competition area, well... is the iPod really still revolutionary ? I don't think so. It used to be, in ye olde Archos Jukebox Recorder days. Now it lies behind, due to stupid corporate practices...
