Windows This rumour has been rummaging around the web for a few days, but now that The New York Times has picked it up, it probably carries a bit more validity than it did before. Microsoft invited members of the press to a mystery event coming Monday, and supposedly, the company will launch its very own ARM tablet running Windows RT.

Although in all fairness, on the plus side the american football fans doesn't seem to be nearly as violent and idiotic as football fans. Yeah yeah, I know it's not all fans but I've never heard of riots at american football games.
I guess there's at least something we could learn from those yanks.

Sure and handball's tougher than american "football" too but that's not the point. I was talking about the fans, not the game ;)

And looking at stadiums - hardly any barrier between audience and the field, no plexi walls to segregate stands into sectors ...so tamed.

More: the same even at their (relatively few, but still around here and there) association football venues O_o

Just like in Denmark. There may be some soft of a fence somewhere sort of to segregate fans from each other, but not much actually. Many stadiums don't even have actual seats. Just a relatively green field to play on and some 2 foot high signs with commercials on them, and that's it.
