Why A Microsoft Music Store Makes Sense To Customers

Why A Microsoft Music Store Makes Sense To Customers

Lovers of music rejoice. It has come to our attention that Microsoft might be planning something new and exciting for you, in the form of a new music service, that can be integrated to work with Xbox and a shady upcoming Windows based phone.

I mean, have you heard of a single person who uses their last.fm on the Xbox 360? It does sound a little forced. The company is of course, very unhappy with that, and apparently is making big plans to change it.

Inspired by Genetics, First Automated Computer Configurations To Adjust At Cyber Threats

According to studies on cyber threats, inadequate security configurations are blamed for networks vulnerabilities.
