I wish to be Australian…

By | June 17, 2009 | 2 Comments

Australia MapNeowin.net reports that Microsoft Australia will be giving away $10 000 to one lucky IE8 user. The idea is really simple and that’s how it works:

“1) Ditch the web browser you’re using. If you try to find the $10,000 with your current browser, you’ll get nowhere.
2) Download Microsoft’s best ever browser, Internet Explorer 8. It’s the only browser capable of cracking all the clues.
3) Follow @tengrand_IE8 on Twitter for the daily clues. Clues will be released at random times from Friday 19th June.
4) Use the clue and your brilliance to deduce where the $10,000 is hidden.”

Yes, it’s open to Australians only.

Microsoft Proposes Launching an IE Free Windows 7 ZDNet writes:

Microsoft is stepping up its campaign to try to appease European Commission (EC) regulators who are mulling possible remedies in the ongoing Opera-Microsoft browser-bundling case in the European Union.

According to News.com, Microsoft’s newest proposal is to offer a version of Windows 7 which strips out Internet Explorer (IE) 8. Not hides it — like is currently possible via a “remove features” capability. The Softies are proposing to sell a separate version, designated Windows 7 E which doesn’t include a browser in it at all.
