Internet Explorer may finally bite the dust.
Reportedly, only one percent of PC owners use the archaic browser. Even Microsoft doesn't people using IE6.
When IE7 was introduced, IE6 was used by 80% of PC'ers. Now with Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and IE10, it might be time to put IE6 in the nursing home.
But there are still folks out there using IE6, with 8% of non United States users on IE6.
Somebody please put the old browser out of it misery.

If U can't beat 'em, join 'em!
Sources are saying that Microsoft is currently working on creating an Office business app, which would be compatible with Apple's iPad.
No word yet on a release date or price, but we're hearing that the app will probably cost around $10, and it is likely to be released sometime next year!
Ten bucks for full compatibility with Office files? Sounds like a pret-ty decent deal to us!
What do U think? Would U like a Microsoft Office app on UR iPad???

They envision a world full of technological productivity. No need for a lot of paper, more efficient computing, and eyeglasses that translate the foreign voices around you!
It's futuristic fashion, and we love it.
Watch this inventive little film above and enjoy!

No more perusing Facebook in your underwear.
The site will be launching Skype video chat later this week. Calling the launch "something awesome," CEO Mark Zuckerberg hinted that this new integration would be added to Facebook chat.
There will now be an in-browser video chat that is actually powered by Skype, but it's not clear whether or not you will need to download the Skype program itself.
This announcement comes just two months after Microsoft announced they were buying Skype for $8.5 million. And with Facebook and Microsoft being friendly partners, this could be a lucrative business deal for both companies.
We're excited for the new video chat. What do U think of the new service?

Google is just the latest company to throw their hat in the Hulu ring.
Along with Microsoft and Yahoo, Google has been added to the list of potential buyers interested in purchasing Hulu, which is currently co-owned by Disney, News Corp., NBC Universal and Providence Equity Partners.
If bidders go high enough, analysts say that Hulu could receive about $2 billion-$3 billion in the deal.
Whoa. That's some major dough. If Google takes over Hulu, we wonder how that will affect their deal with YouTube??
