Windows Microsoft is detailing the design and workings of several of the core Windows 8 Metro applications. They've covered People, Mail, and Calendar so far - more sure to come. I'm quite interested in the rather... Lacklustre Music and Video applications. Another interesting one details Windows 8's multimedia frameworks.

On the other hand, if someone were to hack into your Google account, you're fucked, because all of the data stored in all of your contacts (and purchased Android apps plus tied phone number, and your Google Voice phone number if you have one plus any numbers you have attached to it, and all of your e-mail messages, and your Google Talk history, and your documents if you use Google Docs... the list goes on and on) is right on the Internet, all in one account. Not only can intruders change your contact entries at will, they can get any of their (and your) personal info you added and start harassing or spamming or whatever.


Well, it would be a pain, like getting your credit card stolen, but not exactly a traumatic event. It wouldn't be that much different if they stole my phone and I had all that crap stored locally on it. IMO, it's a risk, but the benefits are more than worth it. Not like I keep anything super sensitive in the cloud anyway. If they want to read my email, fine ;)
