PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "RIM has just unveiled the latest iteration of the BlackBerry 10 operating system, set to be released on new devices early next year. We have finally gotten a look at the UI RIM will be shipping, and it's an interesting mix of user interaction metaphors we've seen on multiple devices to this point and a strong progression from the version of the software we first saw back in May." It looks nice. I like it.

Take off the rose-coloured glasses when recalling distant past ...the times of 8-bit micros were almost abusive with what they offered for the price, slow hw barely able to do anything useful, and tremendous amounts of lock-in into particular systems back then.

It's ironic that you seem to blame the PC standard (PC being what killed off 8-bit micros) of abuses and stagnation - while in fact, the vast Wintel ecosystem brought us tremendous capabilities for great prices. It also brought powerful commodity hardware for inexpensive *nix workstations, and alternative operating systems in general...
