Joe Dee & The Starliters were the house band for the Peppermint Lounge in New
York City for more than a year. Dee wrote "Peppermint Twist," along with producer
Henry Glover, as a tribute to the lounge and the song scored #1 on the charts
during early 1962. It sold over one million copies, and was awarded a gold disc.

OUT WITH THE OLD, IN WITH THE NEW!

The new logo

(Fox News) – Microsoft on Thursday announced what it called the first update
to the company’s logo in 25 years, a revamp that takes the familiar colored
banner and turns it into … well, more of a window. Rather than a colored
banner, the new logo is a colored square composed of four evenly sized
squares and a tweaked typeface.

It’s one of many changes the company is making in anticipation of the
Windows 8 launch later this year, said Jeff Meisner, a spokesperson
for Microsoft.
