PC Fashion Plate
Microsoft has long been jonesin' to be cool. Gates hangs with Bono, the Xbox
gets it into the kids' market, and the Zune (by the way, here
are the details on some new Zunes) is a clear iPod wannabe.
Redmond also wants PCs to be cool. The Vista Aero interface is definitely slick,
and Microsoft wants hot-looking machines to go along with its hot software.
So who better to design these things than today's top fashion designers?
Microsoft last week schlepped
out to Las Vegas to attend PROJECT, an international fashion tradeshow.
The hope is to get designers working on sharp, new designs based around technologies
such as tablet PCs, as well as bringing more art to mundane items like screensavers.
