Plenty of Microsoft news this week as we just can't stop talking about the company that we love as much as we hate. For starters the Zune isn't even out yet and we are already starting to think it won't live up to its HD name. We roll right along from there into some Media Center news including how to import HD movies into Media Center, and the interesting details of the RVU alliances as potentially competing product. Sony was next on our list as we discussed the new PS3 and what it is and what it isn't. Finally the show rounds out with a little Netflix Movie Party, Redbox, ripping DVDs and finally FOOTBALL!
