Windows And so the war on general computing continues. Were you looking forward to ARM laptops and maybe even desktops now that Windows 8 will also be released for ARM? I personally was, because I'd much rather have a thin, but fast and economical machine than a beastly Intel PC. Sadly, it turns out that all our fears regarding UEFI's Secure Boot feature were justified: Microsoft prohibits OEMs from allowing you to install anything other than Windows 8 on ARM devices (the Software Freedom Law Center has more).

Do people care how a car works ... Nope.


Except that quite a lot of people do. That's why my friends joke that I must have the only unmodified Subaru STI in the world. And even though I don't change the car's hardware or programming, I know how it works and I do care a lot about tires and alignment.

One of my best friends has already started modding his Prius. He's got a display that shows him all kinds of extra engine and battery data. He'll probably be running custom firmware by summer.
