Hey Apple’s announcements arent the only thing thats ‘rocking’ the tech industry in case you didnt know Tech Crunch 50 conference, which is a an event for up and coming tech business commonly referred to as start-ups, is also being held in San Francisco. So if you wanna check out some new stuff head on to their site. One of the more interesting presentations were from fitbit.
And of course what would an Apple event be without a Microsoft representative to try and bring down the hype a notch or two. (c/o crunchgear)
“Apple is forcing people to pick and choose within their product line and hope that the software features they want are included in the hardware that best fits their lifestyle. In contrast, all Zune customers have the opportunity to take advantage of features like wireless access to the Zune Marketplace, the ability to “Buy from FM” radio, stream music from the Zune Marketplace wirelessly to the player, subscribe to music “channels”, wirelessly sync their device to their PC and much more. Zune customers have the ability to get intelligent recommendations and custom channels from the Zune software based on the music that you and your friends are actually listening to. Zune included an FM tuner and wireless capabilities into all the devices from the first generation forward because we believe all of our customers should benefit from great hardware coupled with powerful software features. The bottom line is, we believe that software and services are really the foundation for creating innovative experiences in this space, and that’s where you’ll continue to see Zune differentiate from competitors.”
