Host Melissa J. Perenson is joined by Ginny Mies, Jason Cross, and Melissa Riofrio this week, as we explore a wide swath of topics. We reveal what happened when we placed multifunction printers into several real world scenarios? We delve into whether Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 mobile operating system update, due this fall, pulls ahead of where its Android and iOS competition, or merely brings Windows Phone 7 closer to the pack? We discuss what’s new among standalone e-readers, now that Barnes & Noble and Kobo have revealed all-new E Ink models, and that Amazon has launched another, cheaper Kindle With Special Offers. And we talk about the new MacBook Pro-like Dell XPS 15z laptop.
