The Plot Thickens – B&N Denies Connection to Today’s Microsoft Event
Microsoft is expected to have a major announcement later today. That event is due to start just over 7 hours from now and the press frenzy is approaching a dull roar (Not nearly up to Apple status but far above usual press buzz).

Business Insider is also reporting the story, possibly from another source. Oh, well. It was fun while it lasted.
To be honest, the timing was too short. The 2 companies formed a partnership and announced Newco just over a month ago, and they were still fighting it out in court 6 months ago. Collaborating on a device that quickly can happen, yes, but it isn’t likely that they’d have anything new to announce.
