Microsoft’s missing gadgets

I’ve been waiting for Sideshow remotes to finally appear.

Two WinHEC postmortems shed light on why they’re not here yet: Hardware companies are being slow to release them in part because of the Vista development learning curve.

Some hardware types complained about Vista’s down-to-the-wire launch, saying last minute changes meant they didn’t have a lot of time to get products ready early in the cycle. They also said some of the documentation is still lacking. I wonder if the latter is because Microsoft’s been so busy documenting material for antitrust regulators?

Bottom line, according to the stories: it may be 2009 before there’s widespread availability of the nifty gadgets that extend the Vista experience onto auxiliary display devices.
