The idea of bending over to pick up a virtual tennis racket in front of that 50-inch flat screen in our living room makes perfect sense to us. In fact, we can't wait to see Natal come to the Xbox platform. However, the idea of manipulating an excel spreadsheet on a 15-inch screen within a 5 x 5-foo

It's actually kind of amazing how much dough Microsoft has spent over the past little while in an attempt to polish its image in the minds of the general populace, and as if those \"I'm proud to be a PC\" and completely incomprehensible Gates / Seinfeld spots weren't enough, the Redmond-based outfit

Those Apple \"Get a Mac\" ads have long been an annoyance to Microsoft and to Bill Gates in particular. No surprise as Apple, emboldened by rising market share, continues to ratchet up the venom with quips like, \"fear of switching is the foundation of customer loyalty for PCs,\" found in its latest TV

You didn't really think we'd make it through his retirement without running the sexiest of all Bill photos, did you? We have to wonder what he'll feel like tomorrow morning, though -- we hear the headache on a 33 year software hangover is absolutely vicious.Anyhow, just because the man's left the b
