Windows Ars Technica is running an interesting article about the Mail application on Windows 8. It's one of the first party Metro applications, and Ars' conclusion is that it's really, really not up to snuff - it can't even compare favourably to the mail application on Windows Phone. The sad thing is, however - this applies to virtually all Metro applications.

Dunno about the title of idiot of the year, but Ballmer has already won the one of worst CEO of the year:

"Without a doubt, Mr. Ballmer is the worst CEO of a large publicly traded American company today." (forbes)

It's pretty harsh but I can't say I disagree.
