Microsoft Delays Vista SP1

Microsoft has announced that it will delay releasing Vista SP1 for at least 60 days due to problems with the software drivers .  It appears that vendors who have written drivers for SP1 have not implemented the protocols that Vista requires.

It's unclear if the issue of the drivers are the result of Microsoft's famed lack of documentation.  However, some analysts believe that Microsoft's failure to adequately test its new error response software -- which ties program errors back to the programmers themselves -- is the real culprit.

According to a ComputerWorld article, written by Sharon Gaudin, "Researcher: Humans will love, marry robots by 2050 ."

Industry Make-over? 

According to the researcher British AI researcher, David Levy, humans will have sexual relationships with robots, perhaps within five years. This may be good news for some, but might create a few problems at home. Nonetheless, if this prediction comes to pass, it could revolutionize the street-walking industry and create new momentum for the unionization of workers.

Why You Will Love Microsoft (Windows 1.0)

From the infinite archives of our WayBack machine, Steve Balmer tells you why you will buy Windows 1.0 and love it.  In fact, for $99.00 Windows 1.0 seemed like a pretty good deal (if you already owned an IBM PC).

Considering that recently released Microsoft Vista now costs only several hundred dollars more, and the cost of a new PC laptop today is less than an original IBM PC, the value proposition is still as sincere as this video.
