Windows "Microsoft today announced the global availability of its popular Windows operating system, Windows 8. Beginning Friday, Oct. 26, consumers and businesses worldwide will be able to experience all that Windows 8 has to offer, including a beautiful new user interface and a wide range of applications with the grand opening of the Windows Store." I'm still not clear on what '12:01 AM local time' means, but if it means it goes on sale in every country on 12:01 AM, I'll be buying in a bit over an hour!

I hate to break the news to ya but we are down to 3 megacorps and they ALL suck. [...] Google is in bed with the NSA and want to know what you had for breakfast.

Makes you wonder when will we have it like in Syndicate or Syndicate Wars? ...and is that why Google wants augmented glasses, soon implants? (vide intro screenshots in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Syndicate_Wars#Plot )
