The Zune brand certainly doesn't have the equity of the iTunes brand. However, the implementation of the Zune services is quite good (I prefer it to iTunes; imagine Apple trying to rebrand that!!),...

Yes, this an impressive looking design in keeping with Apple's "keep making 'em thinner" mantra. I noticed that they've also done away with the external power brick and built the power supply into...

IE 8 is my primary browser and I like it quite a bit. I think it's a workhorse browser though - not intended to be flashy or the fastest but it's compatible with everywhere I go on the internet,...

The restart notice comes via a Windows Update dialogue box rather than from Zune itself. I noticed it in the Notification Area. Any thoughts on why a distinct library folder for Podcasts is created...

The update requires a system restart after which I noticed a new folder in my Windows 7 Libraries - Podcasts! It's added to the User folder and all subsequent podcasts downloaded through Zune are...

Now that's a nice laptop design! I'm so glad to see PC manufacturers stepping up their game to produce hardware that generates enthusiasm and functionality. I do think that Apple's approach to...

Let me weigh in on the "common sense online" issue. Over time I've come to rely on AV solutions mostly for scanning files I've downloaded from the internet before opening them. Also, I find that UAC...

I certainly appreciate the intention of this kind of video editor. I think three levels of software is emerging: hobbyist, consumer/enthusiast, and pro-level. One thing I hoped for with this release...

I'm wondering if the clean install approach is overrated here. I've found that upgrading has improved with each OS release. For example, I installed Windows 7 RC as an upgrade on top of Vista...

Yes, this okay for now. But currently I cannot find a link to play internet radio. The last version did have it and I think this is essential for Media Guide. Personally, i would like to see the Zune...

I believe computer UIs will always require a learning curve from the user. Unfortunately, not every user is an enthusiast that wants to enter that learning curve, thus their experience is often quite...

@Reddp Isn't that just the Active X control for the IE browser? That does work quite well but it uninstalls whenever you clear IE's browsing history.

This is remarkably progressive stuff from MS, especially considering that it's free! It seems like a shot across the bow of the iLife suite and MobileMe. One things I would like to see is integration...

The new Apple ads are simply expressions of the traditional, immature Apple brand = condescending contempt for their competition. If you would like to read some stories about what still needs fixing...

Re: "Much of that perception, Microsoft belatedly acknowledges, stems from Apple's successful and unchallenged anti-Vista campaign." I would agree this is a part of what contributes to this...

I hear you on this one! This drove me nuts when I first got Vista. Here's what has worked for me so far: when setting a shell folder (Documents, Music, etc.), hold down ALT when closing the window;...
