Microsoft moves to control your TV, while India introduces the World's cheapest table. Amazon's "Fire" sale numbers may be a little fuzzy, and could lack of an iPhone 5 be just what competitors in the smartphone arena needed? Also, if you're looking for Wikipedia in Italy, you're out of luck. All that from our search across the web to find today's Five, Most Interesting Headlines in Tech:

Microsoft's great big television-related iceberg.
New Delhi (CNN) - India's Ministry of Education on Wednesday revealed what it calls the least expensive computer tablet in the world: a device that costs 2,276 rupees, or less than $50.

That's never stopped analysts and others from trying to fill in some actual data-an urge that has increased sharply with the announcement of the Kindle Fire.
Computerworld - Over two-thirds of the online buzz Tuesday about Apple's new iPhone 4S was negative, a social media monitoring company said today.
Reuters) - Wikipedia has disabled its Italian website in protest against a privacy law drafted by Silvio Berlusconi's government which would impose new restrictions on newspapers and Internet pages and curb police wiretaps.
