I know a lot of folks are eager to find out when they will be able to get Windows 8.1. I am excited to share that starting at 12:00am on October 18th in New Zealand (that's 4:00am October 17th in Redmond), Windows 8.1 will begin rolling out worldwide as a free update for consumers on Windows 8 through the Windows Store. Windows 8.1 will also be available at retail and on new devices starting on October 18th by market. So mark your calendars!

It's the Windows 8 Facebook app.

If I see a message I expect to be taken to it when I click on it. Instead it launched the application and takes you right to the top and the latest posts.

I haven't checked if it's possible to change the info the title displays. Partial random posts aren't that interesting and they keep coming back. I'd rather have information about notifications, but I'm not sure if you are in a position to make that happen.

After an update another app, Code Writer, now displays the file you've got open on its live tile. I found that rather clever and convenient.
