Google Chrome is Overtaking Firefox Among Power Users (http://lifehacker.com/5645038/how-and-why-chrome-is-overtaking-firefox-among-power-users) 3:00
It seems that Google Chrome is taking over the Enthusiast market.  Although I still prefer one browser solution like Firefox, I have installed IE9 Beta as well as Chrome and I still like Firefox better.  Iím going to use both IE and Chrome all week though.

Internet Explorer 9 Beta hits 2 Million Downloads in Two Days (http://www.windowsitpro.com/article/paul-thurrotts-wininfo/Internet-Explorer-9-Beta-2-Days-2-Million-Downloads.aspx) 10:20
The download numbers on IE9 Beta are pretty impressive.  Iíve actually downloaded it by the time Iíve posted these show notes and Iím honestly pretty happy with it.  Make sure you try out both and see which one you prefer.

RIM Readies Its Answer to the iPad (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748704129204575506160515163820.html?mod=dist_smartbrief) 15:30
RIM looks like they are trying to jump into the very crowded Tablet market with their Blackbook.  I donít think it will make huge waves, but for loyal Blackberry users, it might still do very well in the business crowd.  Like the Cisco Cius that is supposed to arrive later this year.

Sony Ericsson is Ditching Symbian (http://www.businessweek.com/news/2010-09-24/sony-ericsson-is-planning-no-new-symbian-products.html) 19:37
Nokia is all about Symbian.  A lot of other companies have used the rock-solid Symbian OS in the past, but they are running to something flashier.  Although I love Android, I still love the stability that Symbian delivers.
