Confusion 2.0

So where do you find Solitaire on this thing? Microsoft says Windows 8.1, a planned update to its much-maligned Windows 8, will be free of charge when it rolls out later this year. Microsoft says it's never made customers pay for "decimal point" updates.

Windows 8 users, however, say they'd gladly hand over some cash if they can just get the freakin' Start button back.

If it fits ... O.J. Simpson won a small victory on Day 2 of his attempt to win a new trial in his Vegas robbery case, when a judge said he could have one hand unshackled to drink water and take notes.

And try on his glove.

You betcha she's coming: The high school graduating class in the tiny north-central Washington town of Republic landed a big-name commencement speaker: former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

The high school's 27 graduating seniors ran an aggressive social media campaign to snag the former Alaska governor, but The Buzz suspects the town's name might have had something to do with it, as well.
