News – Last week was Macworld and all the rumors about new Mac products came true: The MacBook Air, iTunes movie rentals (with HD), new Apple TV,iPhone/iPodtouch upgrades, and Time Capsule.
For you iPhone users, the new upgrades are cool. You can customize your screen menu layout, make web shortcuts, even Google Maps has a generic GPS feature. Plus, you can now text message multiple people at once…what more could you want? Oh yeah, a simple cut & paste function would be nice!

Rumor – Microsoft is releasing the successor to the infamous Vista OS during the second half of 2009. I have to wonder, since most PC users haven’t even upgraded from Windows XP, what will this new release include?
Also, there is news floating around the internet that NBC shows MAY come back to iTunes… we’ll have to cross our fingers and see.
