Microsoft showed off many of the products it intends to push during the upcoming holiday season, including the Xbox 360 game "The Beatles: Rock Band" and smartphones equipped with the Windows Mobile 6.5 operating system, during a massive "Open House" in New York City on Oct. 6. Microsoft also intends to heavily promote the Zune HD, its handheld media player, and a variety of hardware ranging from a high-powered mouse to high-definition cameras for video chat. Additionally, Microsoft used the event to show off its collaboration with Ford on in-vehicle technology for the 2010 Fusion.
