So yesterday, Microsoft did something I’ve been guilty of doing in the past, they couldn’t contain themselves and had to tell everyone about their cool idea before everything was done by sorta-kinda releasing the Zune MP3 player.

Jason Reinsvold’s Bow Master – don’t waste too much of your Friday on this game.
