Arnold Schwarzenegger doing a Zombie film and also… A return run as Conan the Barbarian.

Microsoft tries again with the development of the Surface 2 tablet.  I’m starting to wonder about Microsoft, considering that the Surface 1 was a total flop along with their MP3 player and their smart phone.  Why, if it wasn’t for the great success of the Windows Vista operating system… oh wait.  Related: Bill Gates says that CTRL+ALT+DELETE was a mistake.  Hmmm, you don’t say.
