Submission + - Firefox No Longer Alternative Enough

Kelson writes: "The Alternative Browser Alliance, which promotes the use of alternative browsers over Internet Explorer, has stopped promoting Firefox after nearly two years. According to the announcement, Firefox has sold out, gone mainstream, and "is no longer an alternative web browser."

Reportedly the site will throw its weight behind iCab, as it is guaranteed to remain alternative since it will never run on Windows Vista.""

Submission + - Microsoft set to announce Zune 360 and 180

Blueberry Bob writes: "Just in time for the iPhone June launch, Microsoft is planning to launch the Zune 360 and 180, the 360 will be a widescreen video and music player available in 40 and 80 GB models whereas the 180 will be a smaller device similar in size to the iPod nano. Oddly enough, only the 180 model will feature a cellphone — Microsoft believes that the combined cellphone/music player market is better served in compact players."

Submission + - Star Trek "DeMastered" Video Service Launc

lopy writes: "The Star Trek franchise has partnered with the little known DuroSport Corporation to launch a new video download service. The service will offer "DeMastered" versions of classic Trek episodes. The new releases roll-back the quality enhancements of recent years and attempt to replicate the experience viewers had while watching the original series on TV in the 1960's. Medialoper was given a preview, and they've just posted a scathing review of this odd new service."
