Microsoft Exec Finally Tiptoes Around the Death of Zune Commented on: 3 years ago (June 10, 2011) 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!!),...
The New Mac Mini Commented on: 4 years ago (June 15, 2010)

Clean install with Windows 7 Upgrade media: How does that work exactly? Commented on: 5 years ago (July 9, 2009) 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...
Windows Media Guide Beta Commented on: 5 years ago (June 24, 2009) 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...
