Windows "Here's the official guidance, my sources say: Anything currently/formerly known as a 'Metro-Style application' (with or without a hyphen) will now be known officially as a 'Windows 8 application'. References to the 'Metro user interface' will now be replaced by "Windows 8 user interface." And instead of saying 'Metro design', the Softies and those adhering to their official guidelines will be using the words 'Windows 8 design'." Microsoft not being allowed to use the Metro name here is just as ridiculous as Apple trolling Samsung. All ridiculous exponents of the western world's IP fetish.

It's even more perplexing than processor names, which I have actually stayed awake at night trying to figure out how they could take something that's so simple and f**k it up so badly, and to pay people who do it a lot of money. (i3/i5/i7 ... WTF does that even mean? It's not even like 'i7 is better than i5', because that isn't always the case.)

i stands for imaginary - also, notably, i^2 = -1

(but stayed awake, seriously?...)
