  • Microsoft US reveals Zune HD details

    What is powered by Nvidia's Tegra chip, supports compressed HD video (.h264) playback at a fair clip of 30fps and 1280x720 resolution and has a battery life of 33 hours while playing music?

  • Why Microsoft's next CEO will fail

    Steve Ballmer isn't necessarily a bad CEO. After all, Microsoft's on strong financial footing. But Ballmer made enough bad product decisions - Zune, Kin, Vista and perhaps Surface - to suggest that Microsoft employees, swayed by a forced-ranking employee rating system, told him what he wanted to hear, not what he needed to hear. If that culture doesn't change, Ballmer's replacement will fare even worse than he did.
