• Zune 2 Launch Date Confirmed

    Stop what you’re doing. This is breaking news, folks. The launch date for the Zune 2 has supposedly been confirmed.

  • Mac Office 2008 Preview Site Launched: Software Here Early 2008

    Office 2008 for Mac is coming early next year; hold your horses, Vince. In the meantime, Microsoft has launched a preview Web site where you can take a look at some of the office suite’s features. It is exciting, I know.

  • LG Shine Now In Pink, Gold: Nope, We'll Never See It
