    Well that was fast. My morning review of the news (Bing's sci/tech news this time) shows the Xbox One is no longer a top story. Meanwhile, media darling Apple is at the top.

    Late yesterday I received an email from Microsoft encouraging me to buy the First Day special edition Xbox One, and I better hurry up because the supply is almost exhausted. Yet already, the next morning after all the E3 announcements, Xbox One seems to have gotten the big yawn.

    For reference, here are this morning's top stories on Bing's sci/tech news feed (retrieved Jun 11 2013, 9:22 ET; edited for presentation here):

    Sorry about the overly long initial post... Perhaps I should have removed the photos and cleaned up the text a bit, rather than do a straight copy-paste.
