Note Wednesday 1st October 2008, a little over 3 weeks away from today in your diary. Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft and a whole load of influential partners and companies will be in London for the Microsoft Student Technology Day.
The plug-ins, the add-ons, the "download and use with" programs. So many people have been on about the "porn mode" InPrivate feature, the coloured tabs and the accelerator features, but what seems to be missing from the blogosphere is the entire gallery of additional software for the product.
