Just what exactly are these ladies doing?
Microsoft's Zune reaches some eager fans ahead of schedule

It looks as though some stores have jumped the gun ahead of the Zune's official November 14 launch date. The $249 player has shown up in a few stores across the nation including a Best Buy at the Union City Landing shopping center.

Microsoft is really talking up the social aspects of the Zune player with "Welcome to the social" plastered in big letters on the box. Also interesting is the "Hello from Seattle" greeting imprinted on the back of the Zune player.

Items included in the retail box are the player itself, a soft case, USB sync/charge cable, ear buds, installation CD, instruction manual and the 14-day free trial to Zune Marketplace that DailyTech has already discussed.

Also worthy of mention is that the Zune software struck its first blow on the populace with an installation error (see photo on right). Some have indicated that the error was likely caused by the install program trying to connect to Zune Marketplace which hasn't officially opened its doors. On the other hand, other early adopters have been able to install the software without issue.

Online scams target the wealthy

Phishing scams have become even more sophisticated
High-income earners are being preferentially targeted by online "phishing" scams, research has shown.


"The Gartner research follows a report by the Association of Payment Clearing Services (APACS) earlier this week that also highlighted a surge in phishing scams and a rise in the amount of money lost."

"However, banks are not the only companies targeted by phishing scams. The Gartner research showed that brands such as eBay and PayPal are also impersonated in an attempt to lure victims to handover bank details. "


Daily Tech should take on this subject -SAFER BUYING-Dont get CHEATED.

This is the best time to push them in.
Last year, the trade in counterfeit goods cost the UK economy around £10bn and 4,000 jobs.
