How is it that the cables of electronic components always manage to tightly wrap themselves around each other when we're not looking. It's because they're making new ones
, of course.
Good news out of Chicago. The Bears are going to the Superbowl. If you thought things were crazy in this town before...
In case you hadn't noticed, the Mac vs. PC war has entered the personal media player arena. Microsoft came out with their own media player to rival Apple's ipod, called the Zune
. Both devices have the same storage capacity and both play music, video and show pictures. Both (perhaps not so surprisingly) sell for the same price. Microsoft's unit has a larger display screen and an underutilized wireless capability. It also has the same sleek styling as a bar of soap. And not one of those fancy soaps, either. The Zune does interact with Windows Media Center and let you use those features on the XBox360. Still, once the novelty wears off, one hopes that Microsoft has plans to take better advantage of the Zune's capabilities in the future.
That's it for now. See you next week.
