TechBytes: Sony's Google TV

The sets go on sale this weekend, with screens ranging from 24 inches to 46 inches.

IE9 Review

Microsoft released a test version of its new web browser last month. The Wall Street Journal's Katie Boehret has been testing Internet Explorer 9. She says it compares favorably to other browsers, and handles graphically rich websites with no trouble.

"It allows these websites to run very cleanly, and without stuttering and without having trouble loading," Boehret said. "So that's a huge advantage, especially as the web grows and more people are creating these rich websites."

You can read her full review on the Wall Street Journal website.
