The sleeping giant raises an eyelid (some product news from Microsoft after a pretty long relatively dormant period)

Since I write so often about upcoming Apple products, I thought I'd give the big guy a break and write about this Microsoft release that's supposed to happen tomorrow. Nobody really seems to sure what the thing does, but they are releasing a product under the name Origami Project ( that is being announced at an event tomorrow. Can't say much for the site, but it's evidently supposed to be a product to take on the iPod in some fashion, sounds interesting.

Sounds distinctly like the buzz leading up to the release of the Segway--everybody is excited about it and have no clue why. We'll just have to wait and see.

UPDATE 3/23/06: Sleeping dogs lie--so, Microsoft launched the thing. So far it seems to have landed with a thud. Seems the price point is perhaps a little higher than people were expecting. You can see the details on their own site here:
