    Microsoft's (MSFT) newest Zune doesn't take pictures, lacks a full-blown app store, and ditches its largely-unsuccessful 'squirting' feature. But Microsoft says it has remained faithful to the device's original intent - as a media player - including a 3-inch screen, and HD radio and video playback.

    The Justice Department expands its review of Microsoft's (MSFT) search deal with Yahoo (YHOO), asking both firms for more details. Though this means the deal will be subject to extensive examination rather than immediate approval, Microsoft says it expected as much.

    Microsoft (MSFT +0.3%) wins a delay on a court order that would have required it to change its Word program immediately or halt sales. The order won't take effect until an appeal of the underlying patent case is resolved, with oral arguments scheduled for Sept. 23.

    Microsoft (MSFT) cuts the price of its high-end Xbox 360 by $100, following a similar move by Sony (SNE). Nintendo's (NTDOY.PK) Wii is now the only console that hasn't yet had a price cut ahead of the holiday shopping season.

    Nintendo (NTDOY.PK) resolves a trade fight that could have become a Wii problem: a U.S. import ban on the console. The patent-infringement settlement removes a threat that could have affected the company's top sales position over the Xbox 360 (MSFT) and PlayStation 3 (SNE).

    Microsoft (MSFT), Yahoo (YHOO) and Amazon (AMZN) join a coalition taking aim at Google's (GOOG) book publishing settlement, arguing the settlement gives Google an unfair copyright immunity in digital books that other companies will find difficult to match.

    Apple (AAPL), Cisco (CSCO), Microsoft (MSFT) and Intel (INTC) prevail in a ruling that limits patent damages for products shipped outside the U.S. The court opinion originally concerned a 1996 dispute between Boston Scientific and St. Jude over implantable defibrillators, but has broader tech implications.
