Microsoft and Apple, bitter rivals, try to save the desktop operating system.
Can two bitter rivals save the desktop operating system? In the battle between Apple and Microsoft, Bertrand Serlet and Steven Sinofsky are the field generals in charge of competing efforts to insure that the personal computer's basic software stays relevant in an increasingly Web-centric world. The two men are marshaling their software engineers for the next encounter, sometime in 2009, when a new generation of Macintosh and Windows systems is due. Their challenge will be to avoid refighting the last war - and finding themselves outflanked by new competitors.

Market Watch: Markets in China fall with increase in trading tax
China's feverish stock market plummeted Wednesday after Beijing moved to impose higher taxes on trading activity.
The tax, which was announced early in the day, was the government's latest attempt to rein in the world's hottest stock market after a growing number of economists and analysts warned about the threat of a stock market bubble in China.
Investors reacted by selling shares and pushing the two major stock exchanges sharply lower. The Shanghai Composite Index plunged 6.5 percent to close at 4,053.09. The Shenzhen Composite Index dropped 7.2 percent to close at 1,199.45.
