John Gruber on Recent Microsoft News

Some good points from John Gruber on Microsoft's impending Zune HD and the announcement of Outlook for Mac in late 2010.

Zune HD Available on September 15:
Clearly, the Zune HD is going to be compared to the iPod Touch. Its biggest shortcoming is that it’s just a media player and web browser; no apps, no games. The Zune HD prices look good compared to today’s iPod Touches, but not so much compared to the new camera-equipped ones Apple is set to announce next month (16/32/64 GB for $199/299/399).

New Outlook for Mac App Replaces Entourage in Next Version of Office, Scheduled for Late 2010
I concur with this tweet from Snell — that they’re pre-announcing this so far in advance to discourage current Entourage users from switching to the new Exchange-compatible versions of Apple Mail and iCal in Snow Leopard.
