Bootcamp Best of 2000 -Part Two

Boot Camp feature for Tuesday, December 19, 2000

More of... the best of 2000. I'm Fred Fishkin with Bloomberg Bootcamp. We're continuing with a wrap up of some of the best products we've seen over the last year. There've been innovations like Apple's Cube and a WatchCamera from Casio. On the game console side... have you seen Sony's PlayStation2? I didn't think so... and that's the problem. So for now... Sega's DreamCast is a more economical choice... with an ever expanding library of top notch games for all tastes. Our top picks are NBA 2K1, Marine Fishing and the movie-like Shenmue. On the PC side... the favorites are The Sims from Electronic Arts, Crimson Skies from Microsoft and for the kids... .Backyard Baseball, Football and Soccer from Humongous Entertainment. On the Web, they can get homework help from StudyWorksOnline from MathSoft. Other great software packages for the home include MasterCook 6.0, Generations Family Tree and Hallmark Card Studio from Sierra and PhotoSuite 4 from MGI Software. When it comes to digital movie making Apple's iMovie2 ... for Macs only... makes it simple. And creating your own WebCam is easy with software from SpotLife... bundled with the QuickCam line from Logitech. And finally... when it comes to the Internet... one word of advice. Broadband. Either cable or DSL. You can check us on the Web... for our whole Best of 2000 list. Bootcamp, I'm Fred Fishkin, Bloomberg Radio.
