Today's news continues the trend, and should really help win them a broader following. PC World magazine just published its Top 100 Products of 2007, and SightSpeed ranked #21. That's a pretty strong endorsement, and adds to other recent awards and industry kudos, which further validates that they're on the right side of the curve for PC-based video applications. And if you don't believe me, you can read what their CEO, Peter Csathy, has to say on his blog. Peter has become a good blogger in his own right, and is the best example I know of for an executive who blogs regularly, and actually blogs well. I'm a fan.
Just a quick sidebar comment about the Top 100 list. So interesting to see who's leading the pack. Google is #1 with their business "Apps" offering - which itself should be a very scary proposition for all the telecom vendors, especially the PBX crowd.
Overall, Apple has the most mentions with 6 - not a huge surprise there - but Google is right behind with 5. Maybe not a surprise there either, but it sure speaks loudly to how far Google has come, and how fast they're moving. Microsoft had 3 mentions and Yahoo had 2, but nothing for IBM and nothing for Cisco. Nice to see Skype's version 3 on the list at #38. It's just a list, but I think it says a lot about how the balance of power is shifting out there.
