The IE7 Beta Fracas

Windows world is all tipsy topsy over the release of new Internet Explorer 7 Beta which has amazing ground breaking features as tabbed browsing. Apparently, it is/was breaking the Google toolbar and some of the Yahoo’s older toolbars. There is word of the Beta screwing up IM programs like GAIM as well. While these developments have been taking place, a catfight of sorts has broken out between Robert Scoble, a celebrity blogger turned Microsoft’s blogperson, and Andrew Orlowski of The Register. Andrew, who in past few years has managed to ruffle more feathers than those on a flock of seagulls, is taking it on the chin, as Scoble’s coterie come to his defense. His colorful article did not win him any friends … clearly! He made it personal. Thomas Hawk in a harsh post writes, Andrew Orlowski; Sloppy Journalist or Bald Faced Liar? Not sure about that, but the article towards the end just is in poor taste and petty. Scoble can you please go old skool again, back to the days when you mused about many things and not just Microsoft. Update: Scoble promises to try going old skool… yeah!
