Microsoft is no stranger to scrambling to keep up with Google and Apple. It’s like, their forte at this point. New patents have revealed that the Gang that Says “Oh Yeah!” is dipping their toes in the AR goggles arena.

Earth got a little less interesting yesterday when Niel Armstrong passed away at the age of 82. In an age when people are famous from drunken exploits and reality TV shows, Neil was truly an inspiration. In the 60′s and 70′s he was a reality star in a different way. Except what he was doing mattered. Oh what a time to be alive. He was the face of space exploration for over 40 years. In a year where we already lost Ray Bradbury, this is another black mark. If we lose Chuck Yaeger in 2012, I may cry.

I don’t use internet radio, but apparently I’m in the fucking minority. The burgeoning format has surpassed $1 billi in royalties generated.
Microsoft has announced their own tablet, called Surface. It’s 10.6 inches, is going to run on Windows 8, and will probably not convince any iPad users to jump ship.
Microsoft has themselves a bit announcement coming tomorrow, and at least one intrepid reporter thinks it is something in the tablet vein. Hey man, it’s all immaterial to me.
