Seems the BBC and Microsoft are engaging in an extended smooch.
I'm scratching my head as to why - I know the BBC are using Microsoft technology to protect their Digital Rights on the BBC on-demand service. But that's no good reason to give free, uncritical coverage to the latest piece of bloat-ware from Seattle.
Reminds me of the column in "Private Eye" devoted to shameless plugs for Murdoch TV in Murdoch newspapers and vice versa.
There was a piece on News Watch on BBC24 which tried to address the issue, but really it just gave me some more ammunition for my cause.
What's the story ? I'm guessing I won't find the answers on the BBC.
