iPods could be damaged by Microsoft's new computer operating system, the company behind the popular digital music players has warned. Apple, the long-standing rival of Bill Gates's Microsoft, is urging users not to upgrade their PCs to the Vista system until it comes up with a compatible version of the software that runs iPods. More on the Telegraph UK site...
PC Advisor adds that none of Apple's Windows applications are yet compatible with Microsoft's Windows Vista OS (operating system), according to an Apple technical support document. News that iTunes for Windows isn't yet ready for Microsoft's new OS emerged earlier this week, with Apple warning PC users to hold off on a Vista upgrade pending the release of updates.

If you visited Apple's website in the last few months, you must have seen the prominently placed movies that show how the Mac fares against the PC -- of course, they want to say that the Mac is better. Microsoft hasn't provided a rejoinder by creating their own Mac vs. PC movie ads, but someone else did, and posted them on YouTube!

ZDNet reports that Microsoft plans on Monday to officially announce Windows Mobile 6, formerly code-named Crossbow, at the 3GSM trade show in Barcelona. The first devices using the software aren't expected until spring, however, with the bulk of products using the new operating system likely to come in the second half of the year.
PC World adds that for business users who want Microsoft Office on their cell phones, Windows Mobile 6, the upcoming version of Redmond's mobile operating system to be unveiled next week, will be a must-have upgrade. Mobile 6 comes with mobile versions of Outlook, Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
And Engadget did clarify that no carrier or manufacturer announcements have been made at this point regarding availability or upgrades -- all eyes are on next Monday for that.
