Apple Netbook Coming 3rd Quarter 2009?

  This rumor has been around for quite some time and Steve Jobs himself said they have looked into it, but not interested at the time.  Apparently Apple has realized that the market demands more affordable notebooks from every manufacturer.  The company Wintek has supposedly stated they are making the touch panels for a new netbook which would be released in the 3rd quarter of 2009.  The rumor is substantial as it comes from Digitimes, who has been accurate in the past.

Every 30GB Zune Froze At 2AM Dec 31st


  Apparently every 30GB Zune has frozen as of 2AM December 31st 2008.  In a strange down turn of events for Zune, it appears the Y2K-like bug may have taken a bite out of the old Zunes.  When people turned on their Zunes today, they were greeted with a loading screen which never stops loading.  The Zune forum is loaded with this problematic event occurring to many Zune owners.  There is no fix yet from Microsoft, but they have acknowledged that the problem exists.  It seems that a few people on the Zune team will unfortunately not get to enjoy their New Years Eve, or this could be a Steve Jobs-Esque way of saying, "get a new Zune every year".
