Abandon all hope, ye who enter Remainders. Today, we've got: Windows 7 needs less tech support than anyone expected, Acer's Olympic-themed laptop, Sprint's Android phones skipping Android 2.0, and a leaked Panasonic (non-Micro) Four Thirds camera.
Windows 7 Customers Are Just so Savvy
Windows 7's tech support lines have been far less busy than expected—but we can't draw any easy conclusions, like, say, "Windows 7 rulz!," because Windows online tech support has gotten much easier to use and online solutions have become more appropriate.

Acer's Olympic Laptop Is the Lamest Tie-In Ever
Really, Acer? You can't think of anything else to do with an Olympic-themed laptop than to slap the five ring logo on the lid? We expect better, Acer.
