Microsoft pulls the curtain back on Internet Explorer 9.Microsoft pulls the curtain back on Internet Explorer 9.

The good news is that there will be better support for web standards and a brand new JavaScript engine that promises to improve overall speed and page loading times. Bad news is that it's still Internet Explorer. You can take an early version of IE9 for a test drive on the other side of the click.

A neat little feature that will spin through the previews for entire albums rather than having to go through track by track which is certainly a time-saver. Apparently Amazon's MP3 service has had this feature for quite some time.

Touch Arcade gets some hands-on time with Rock Band: iPhone.Touch Arcade gets some hands-on time with Rock Band: iPhone.

playing the tracks in the iPhone Rock Band works just like its console big brother in that every note you miss causes the music to be interrupted. This seems to add so much more to the game than just tapping along to a song like other similar games on the platform...

Yet another positive review for Microsoft's upcoming operating system. Whoever picked the standard selection of wallpapers should be given a medal.
