It seems like recently I am doing nothing but appologizing for lack of posts of this site. This is due to two reasons. Firstly the beginning of the year is a very busy time for me at work, and secondly an open source project I am working on is taking up much of my spare time.

Microsoft have been in battle with the EU again, this time regarding Internet Explorer with its Windows operating system.

For those that have heard about Zune (Microsofts Itunes if you will) may have heard about the spectacular crash some of its systems had. Many unhappy customers reported freezes, and I wonder how many new years eve parties which were relying on a Zune jukebox were disapointed.
