My impression is that innovation in this industry hasn't stopped. But the innovation has shifted to low-risk, evolutionary products and technologies. No more evolutionary, difficult to figure out the why's and how's (why I want to use this? how is this going to make money?) products anymore.

Agree? Disagree?

The image on the left is your regular security camera. The image on the right is the new, improved version. Does this means that those face-recognition software can finally do their jobs?

(The following image is the set-up on the stage.)

Is this the next wave of digital (music) hub? Would you want to navigate via the small screen on this device, or would you want to navigate on iTunes?

(Picture taken off the video screen during the conference, which isn't great.)

Picasa, by LifeScape, is the iPhoto for Windows. (Picture from their web site.) I've downloaded the trial version (or is it free? Haven't check out their web site yet), and chances are, this will replaces my current photo organiser software on my Windows XP machine.

During the DEMO, the emphasis is definitely on the sharing of photos. As the company said, how to get the photo from your digital camera to your grandma's refrigrator.

Cool! Most impressive (to me) so far this morning.
