Microsoft has found a total of 28 million PCs affected by a browser choice coding error in which, believe it or not, users were not presented with a choice of which web browser they would like to use right out of the box. There may well be video chat fees at AT&T when the iPhone's iOS 6 rolls out. You'll find that Sonos has been updated with a tablet UI for Android and a Retina upgrade in graphics for the iPad.
