A side of Microsoft with that?

"Just because you're paranoid, don't mean they're not after you." - Kurt Cobain

Today's news seems to be filled with stuff about Microsoft (and more so than usual). Microsoft has announced that they are going to show off the new Xbox on May 12 on MTV. They appear to be going all out since Elijah Wood will be hosting the show. Microsoft also announced that they filed 8 lawsuits (in 7 states) for "software resellers and system builders for distributing counterfeit and unlicensed computer programs". Yikes, that is a lot of lawsuits. At the same time they are paying Gateway $150 million. Which then will cause Gateway to "release all antitrust claims against Microsoft based on past conduct." Of course, "Microsoft denies any wrongdoing".

Oh and on a significantly lighter note, I thought this was kind of funny. Oh and you know it is a slow news day when articles like this one slow up. No home should be without one of these.
