Tech News for 7-29-09

Tuesday, July 28th, 2009 by | Filed Under: In The News

This week’s news may be filled with Microsoft, but with the release of Windows 7 and the news coverage that Microsoft is currently receiving, hopefully it is not too much of a surprise. Microsoft has announced that it has hit the Release to Manufactures (RTM) stage in the development of Windows 7, which pretty much means that Microsoft has completed their newest operating system. If all goes according to plan, MSDN and TechNet members will be able to obtain Windows 7 on August 6; Consumers will be able to purchase Windows 7 on October 22.

lienware, a well-known high end computer brand (owned by Dell), has opened it’s first retail outlet inside a Micro Center store in Paterson, New Jersey yesterday. For the occasion, Dell hosted a LAN party and gave away free gifts to customers. Microsoft is also working on opening it’s own retail outlets, hiring Lippicott, a retail design consultant firm, to design and concept the retail stores. Designs for the stores include displays for Windows 7, Smartphones, XBox, several Microsoft Surface tables and instructional sessions. There is even plans for a “Windows Guru Bar”.

Apple has complained about another Microsoft Windows commercial, except this time it is regarding Microsoft’s Laptop Hunters campaign. The complaint was regarding Apple’s recently price decrease on their notebooks; Microsoft quietly made a minor modification to their commercial.

Do you think you have too many friends on Facebook? Bill Gates recently closed his Facebook account because he had too many people requesting to be his friend. Apparently, Bill is also not too much of a texter either.
