Internet! Explorer! 8! to! be! named! Internet! Explorer! 8!

Microsoft will name its new browser the same thing it called its last one, with one exception. This is news?

In homage to The Register, I had to let the title of this blog post illustrate the best of The Register, because its post on the new name for Microsoft's Internet Explorer was surprisingly devoid of the biting sarcasm that epitomizes its work. This was a "story" begging for sarcasm.

What story? Exactly. Bill Gates let it slip that Microsoft will be following up IE7 with (gasp!) IE8. Wow. Microsoft may not be creative with its technology, but its marketing is sha-ZAAM!

That's it. Move along. It will probably also let people browse web pages. You heard it here first.
