Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer announces he will be retiring as CEO in the next year. Who should replace Ballmer as CEO of Microsoft? Lenovo starts shipping PCs with a start menu replacement. Does this indicate Windows 8 is a failure? Sony announces the PlayStation 4 will hit stores on November 15th. Will the Xbox One launch before the PS4? Latest rumors say the iPhone 5C could replace the current iPhone 5. Does that make any sense? Warner Brothers announces Ben Affleck will play Batman in the Man of Steel 2 movie. Is Ben Affleck the wrong person to portray Batman? And Microsoft says the Xbox One will never sell without Kinect.
