Windows After ditching its Windows RT tablets from the US market, Samsung has now also confirmed to Heise.de it's going to stop selling them in Germany and several other European countries. The company cites lack of interest from consumers and confusion over what Windows RT is. Combined with the massive discounts Microsoft is now giving to OEMs, the writing is on the wall here: Windows 8 - specifically on tablets but also in general - is turning into a failure.

IE in Metro only runs Flash if its on a constantly updated whitelist. This is to ensure that the Flash applications meet interaction and battery life criteria for touch devices.

I think it should be on a toggle though, I hope Microsoft changes this.

Ah, didn't know that. Of course, my grandson's laptop wasn't touch - but I suppose it would be too difficult to manage a whitelist for touch and non-touch battery devices, and apply them accurately. Oh, well.
