• Zune Drops To 5th Place, Hangs Out With Mickey

    Looks like Microsoft’s Zune isn’t doing too well right now. In only the 2nd week of sales, the player has dropped from 2nd place to 5th place in terms of market share. Kind of sad. NYC marketing firm NPD says that Microsoft had 2.1% of the market share for the week of November 25th. The Zune is selling and isn’t what you’d call a total bomb or anything like that… Read More

Fanning is now working on a social networking site called… Read More

  • Google Somewhat Froogle At Holiday Press Party

    If I took a shot for every time someone said the words “bubble,” “boom,” or “bust” at Google’s holiday press party tonight, I would probably be wasted.

There were about 100 people at the Mountain View event, including Sergey Brinn… Read More

  • Apple Rumor Convergence: The Truth is Out Where?

    with docking station. Sure, that’s fine, it’s a rumor we see more frequently than a new episode of Lost.

That would put it in the roughly .75-inch-range or smaller. Even more, the… Read More
