Our Self: Um blogue desalinhado, desconforme, herético e heterodoxo. Em suma, fora do baralho e (im)pertinente.

Pensamento em curso: «Em Portugal, a liberdade é muito difícil, sobretudo porque não temos liberais. Temos libertinos, demagogos ou ultramontanos de todas as cores, mas pessoas que compreendam a dimensão profunda da liberdade já reparei que há muito poucas.» (António Alçada Baptista, em carta a Marcelo Caetano)

BELIEVE IT OR NOT: Apple vs Microsoft - Times are a-changing

«Who would have thought that at back-to-back hardware events in the year 2016, Microsoft Corp.’s would prove the much more innovative and exciting one over Apple Inc.? Times are a-changing. 

On Wednesday, Microsoft unveiled the Windows 10 Creators Update that includes 3D imaging tools; new virtual-reality headsets that can be used through a HoloLens platform on Windows PCs; live broadcasting for Xbox; a $2,999 enterprise-grade desktop called Surface Studio that essentially folds into a table-sized tablet; the Surface Dial, which is an input device for Surface products that lets users toggle between different menu items by twisting it like a doorknob; and the Surface Book i7.

On Thursday, Apple unveiled a new app for Apple TV that essentially is a glorified TV guide without the world’s two most popular streaming services on it — Amazon.com Inc.’s Prime Video and Netflix Inc. - two new MacBook Pros that are marginally thinner and lighter than their predecessors, and a new input feature called Touch Bar that, similar to Surface Dial, lets users more easily interact with their screens from the top of their PCs and can adapt input options based on the software being used at the time.»
