Media reports say that iLoo thing that was on news past week was hox!? Its some miscommunication between MS and its UK division that caused this it seems!
I am soo depressed.
Well, on a second thought, imagine a blue screen of death when you press flush button of the keyboard!? Okay, I am already feeling better.
