Windows 8 App Store images leaked?

Windows 8 images continue to leak onto the Internet, despite Microsoft's wallpaper-based pleas to those with access to the early releases. Today's installment courtesy CNBeta shows the upcoming Windows App Store, which will likely feature prominently in Windows 8. We've got our doubts about the authenticity of the image. In addition to showing several of the built-in games which already ship...

Windows Phone 7 Marketplace breaks 10,000 app milestone

Microsoft's fledgling smartphone operating system, Windows Phone 7, has just hit an important milestone: over 10,000 apps are now available from the Marketplace. Microsoft has managed to reach this impressive target in just four and a half months, faster than both Apple's iOS App Store and Google's Android Market managed, adding about 1,000 apps a week to its armory since the New Year. While...

Zune Pass expanding to U.K. and Europe, more nations get movie rentals and purchases

Microsoft has announced a new expansion for Zune services. The news is a touch bittersweet for me, since it didn't involve the arrival of Zune Pass in Canada. Maybe next time... Those of you who live in the U.K., France, Italy, and Spain, however, can now enjoy the Zune Pass music subscription service for £8.99 or 9.99 Euros per month. That's only a tad pricier than the $14.99 U.S....

57% of Android apps are free -- iPhone apps: only 27%

In a report published last week it became painfully apparent just how different the iOS and Android ecosystems are. Not only does Android have significantly more free apps than either the iPhone or iPad, but paid apps also cost less on Android. 57% of all Android Market apps are free, compared to 28% of the iPhone App Store and just 23% for the iPad. Only the Windows Marketplace has less...

DoubleTwist continues quest to be iTunes for Android, adds Android market browsing

DoubleTwist may have begun its life as capable iTunes replacement for owners of Apple handhelds, but it's now well on its way to becoming iTunes for Android. In a recent update, DoubleTwist has added a sidebar option to browse the Android Market. The DoubleTwist setup also has one important advantage over Google's web version: a search box. It still seems odd to me that a company who made...

The site looks visually polished. A nice blend between artsy looks and down-to-earth usability. Layout is sensible. You can easily share t-shirts you like, with a simple "embed code" (which is...

Microsoft adds 1-million DRM-free tracks to Zune Marketplace

Microsoft announced some updates to its Zune media player lineup this week, with new smaller, flash memory based Zunes coming soon. But we're much more excited about the software updates. Microsoft has revamped both the Zune firmware and the Zune Desktop software. Perhaps the most impressive thing is that if you've got a current generation Zune, you'll be able to upgrade your firmware to get all...

Facebook unveils Marketplace classified ads section

If you notice a sudden drop in used textbook listings on Amazon or couches with 'minor beer stains' from Craigslist and your local newspaper, you can likely thank Facebook's introduction of the Marketplace. PC Magazine has the scoop on this new social network-infused classifieds ad system, which is free of charge and should be available to all users by the end of this week after a gradual...

AOL to sell Google Ads

AOL announced they will start selling Google Adwords under a new white labeled solution. The deal was mentioned back in December 2005 when Google invested $1 Billion for a 5% stake in AOL in order to collaborate on online video offerings and Instant Messaging among other items. Under this new white labeling solution through a new AOL Marketplace, the company will be enabled to sell search...

Why, hire one of the most prominent providers of business optimization software, of course! Forbes is reporting that Microsoft has hired Omniture to analyze and breath some life into the Zune Marketplace. From a Microsoft spokesman: "Omniture helps us understand what our customers...

Windows Marketplace: Microsoft's new online software and hardware store

Microsoft is poised to launch Windows Marketplace a new online store whose tagline is "A world of products that work with Windows." Formerly codenamed Agora, Windows Marketplace appears to be an everything-for-Windows store to be tightly integrated with Windows Vista. Blogger Ed Bott stumbled across Marketplace when using Vista's Windows System Assessment Tool, a program that divines your...
