Microsoft's long-awaited Xbox Music for the Web has finally launched and allows users to stream "millions of songs" from within the browser. The service is available on Xbox and Windows 8. Intel's new chief executive, Brian Krzanich, explains how the company initially fought the mobile revolution and is now trying to catch up. ?We stopped and we held off and we tried to keep everything? frozen at personal computers, he said Friday during a meeting with a small group of reporters in San Francisco. You can either update an existing installation of Windows 8 or install Windows 8.1 from scratch via ISO files from Microsoft. One word of warning before you proceed, however. The Windows 8.1 preview is essentially a beta of the new OS and is by no means a finished or polished version.
