Windows 8: Download it, then speak YOUR brains

Meh

It's alright

It's look very nice - and aside from being a bit buggy is fine.

The only real comment is the lack of a 'Start' button to launch stuff is a huge pain. Switching back to the "Metro" to open a new window each time is a pain. Probably too much of a pain for me to upgrade my work pc to it.

At home it's OK -- and my wife likes it.

Good for tablet type usage - the lack of a start button pretty well rules out business usage.

Apple breaks location-storing silence

They DO track you

I agree. I've extracted this info from my iPhone, made a kmz file loaded it into Google Earth and it clearly shows where I live and where I've visited by clusters of points at these locations.

There are individual points miles from where I know I went - but the clusters show where I've been. Also since it contains dates you could get a pretty good idea of where I've been and also patterns - such as where I work, where I am during the day vs at night.

So, basically, no matter what Apple say this is a database tracking you.

Secret?

This wasn't ever a secret was it? The day you posted the original article someone picked up their copy of E&T and said it was ultrasound!

Cool stuff though....
