Microsoft Pulls out of Electronics Show
Microsoft joins Apple in pulling out of the International Consumers Electronics Show. Their last appearance will be at the next show, January 9-12, in Las Vegas. MS will still attend to connect with potential customers, but won't have a booth. The reasoning is that their product cycle doesn't coincide with the timing of the event.  No idea what this means for shows like the Consumers Electronics Show.  Maybe if they added cosplay?  Come as your favourite iDevice!

Swiss Army Knives for the IT Tech
Victorinox has released new versions of the classic Swiss Army Knife suitable for IT folk. The "Flash Collection" includes the Slim, which is just a USB drive; the Flash Alox Flight, adding a knife, scissors, and nail file; the Flash LED, adding a LED flashlight; the Flash Laser, replacing the flashlight with a laser pointer; the Secure, adding a fingerprint scanner for added security; and the Presentation Master, adding a laser pointer and Bluetooth remote. The Secure has been called unhackable; Victorinox has held a contest with a prize of $250 000 to break into it with no one claiming the money. Pardon me while I drool a bit…
