Dolly Parton's web team liked new features in Internet Explorer 8 and Silverlight, so much, that Parton's site now features a three-tab Web Slice that includes her video diary, news on her career, and option to buy some of her music. During a minute-long video, Parton says she "wouldn't know a gigabyte from a snake bite. But folks over at Microsoft sure know their computers." She goes on to say Microsoft checked out her "new" website and "turned us on to a little thing they call Web Slices." Microsoft representative said in an e-mail that the software company "wasn't involved in production or scripting" of Parton's Internet Explorer 8 endorsement.
