Default Microsoft News.

Well, i was just about to take a nap. But i was flipping through channels and there was a business report thingy on this channel i never watched in my life.
And they were talking about Microsoft! lol....
The news is..Microsoft put together a team of people who are going to decide if they will go into the "mp3/video" market.
Microsoft is fed up with Apple dominating that market.
So they are thinking of making a device that would play Music, Videos and some games.
The analyst on tv was very brief and didn't go into much detail. I would go find some links, but i'm tirred and going to take a nap.

Enjoy.

Yes they do. Its called the zen touch which rocks. If you are a clumsy person who drops stuff a lot, this is perfect for you. It is VERY durable. Its battery life DESTROYS ipods. The navigation is easy. Id def recomend the zen touch.
