Windows 7’s release is just around the bend (it’s Thursday, actually), and last week, to get a better idea of how many of our readers are planning to join in the fun, we asked you whether or not you were planning to upgrade to Windows 7. Your answer is clear: Yes. You. Are. In fact, 34% of you are already using Windows 7, while 26% have pre-ordered. Another 26% plan to make the upgrade eventually but would presumably rather let others test the waters a bit first. A very small...

Google to Launch E-Book Store in Early 2010 [Ebooks]

Google will offer e-books both directly, and with links to other online stores like Amazon, but the main feature will be searchable text from publishers with whom Google has reached an agreement. Google also states that it’s not focused on selling to any particular e-reader...

Intuit (Quicken) Buys Financial Site Mint [Personal Finance]

Intuit (Quicken) Buys Financial Site Mint [Personal Finance]

Microsoft Outlook Coming to Mac Office [News]

Microsoft Outlook Coming to Mac Office [News]

Microsoft today announced that the next version of Office for Mac will ship with Outlook. One major obstacle to adopting OS X in the workplace for many has been the lack of Microsoft Outlook for Macs—as Outlook is the de facto standard for most corporate environments. Macs had Entourage, but that’s always seemed more like a creaky workaround than a full-fledged solution. With the new version of Office for Mac, set to release sometime in 2010, Outlook comes to the Mac. [Microsoft...
