Even more efficient...
...washer/driers, as this is exactly how they work.
At TechEd Europe this week, one of the keynotes (Day 2 I think) opened with a video that started...
Windows 8.1 .....
... Is more you.
Like a sales assistant in a clothes shop when you try on a second suit after you really didn't like the first one they showed you. "Oh yes, sir. That's much more 'you'." I laughed like a drain.
I don't think they intended it to be taken that way. They're not British, after all.
The TechEd Europe conference in Madrid this week is full of Microsoft employees talking about "Modern Apps", so it not just a "fanboy term".
Give your bags to the airline/handlers before you get to the airport...
... just gives them more chance to lose them. They'd be able to take them to the wrong departure airport as well as send them to the wrong destination!
How you arrange your tiles is up to you but how can you not have noticed that you can scroll right to left on the WP8 home screen to get to the list of all Apps? You definitely don't have to scroll to the bottom to tap the "Next" arrow.

Re: This is a bit inconvenient then, no?
Have you read all the critical comments on that Forbes article by James Taylor.
The article is seriously misleading about a possibly biased survey because it fails to mention the "scientists" in question were mostly geologists and engineers involved in the petroleum industry.

...if you don't not want to not have your data not exploited.
And no one has mentioned...
Earth: Final Conflict
Another Roddenbury creation although produced posthumously.
Androgenous aliens land on earth and provide all sorts of new tech but what are they up to really?
Great premise. Fantastic aliens. Plot fell apart in later seasons unfortunately.
Oh, also wonderful title music.
Breakeven point between Standard and Datacentre
I calculated DataCentre edition as 5.45 times the price of Standard ($4800 versus $882) which means DataCentre is cheaper when you have more than 10 VMs on a two Processor box. If you have four processors then you need to buy your WS2012 licences (Standard or DataCentre) in pairs and you would find DataCentre edition cheaper with more than 20 VMs on a single box.
Also, if you have Windows Server unser Software Assurance and you have more than two processors per box, do an audit and tell Microsoft then they'll give you the number of WS2012 Standard or DataCentre licences you need to cover your current hardware. (Details in the FAQ.) If you don't say anything they will assume 2 processors and only give you one licence for WS 2012. If you're thinking of upgrading your hardware to more processors, do it soon, before Windows Server 2012 ships, so you get the extra licences as part of your SA agreement or it will cost you more to buy the extra licences later.
More pixels = more light = more power = bollocks
Did someone not think about this?
"Lager Area = More Light" I'd agree with but I don't believe that the gaps between pixels are going to make a huge difference to the power requirement. Also fitting more pixels into the same area will likely require that you shrink the gaps as well as the pixels.
It isn't exactly difficult
ISO maintain a list of all the countries in the world. That's where we get the ISOCountryCode from. GB = United Kingdom, GI = Gibraltar. The list is freely available. Why would Apple use anything else?
GB United Kingdom
GF French Guiana
GQ Equatorial Guinea
GS South Georgia And The South Sandwich Islands
It was the FAKE Account that was the important bit
The nasty people allegedly set up a fake FB account _in_her_name_ and used that to attack other people and insinuate that she was up to no good.
FB's alleged "Real-names culture" did nothing to stop this and the woman concerned tried all ways she could to get FB to do something about it which they ignored. Hence her need to resort to the law.

Is so ugly it is the very antithesis of good web design.

Those "roadmaps" are from ages ago and they may have been the plans then but they probably aren't any more.
I've used VS 11 Beta
I like nearly all the improvements EXCEPT the grey colour scheme and the ALL CAPS headings.
The icons are very difficult to distinguish because they are just dark grey on grey. You can hardly tell if they are enabled or disabled, you certainly can't tell what they are meant to do unless you hover on them to read the tooltip.
The ALL CAPS headings are shouty and harder to read than Mixed Case. If they just want to use typography to distinguish headings then bold would have been a better choice than ALL CAPS.
If it doesn't involve a piece of paper and a pencil then I don't believe it is secure,
Air pressure IS lower outside an aircraft than inside
That's the point.
Aircraft doors usually have to be pulled inward to open them (even if they then swing outwards to give a clear opening) and the air pressure inside the cabin, being higher than outside, pushes the door firmly outwards, against its seal, so that it can't leak and it can't be opened while in flight.
Article right but doesn't give enough detail and so confuses.
The judgement starts by explaining the background to the case.
"The Government obtained a search warrant permitting it to install a Global-Positioning-System (GPS) tracking device on a vehicle registered to respondent Jones’s wife. The warrant authorized installation in the District of Columbia and within 10 days, but agents installed the device on the 11th day and in Maryland. The Government then tracked the vehicle’s movements for 28 days."
So there were two failures to abide by the terms of the warrant making it invalid.
It is usual for Actors to provide casting directors with an "age range" they think they can portray rather than their actual age - which gives them more chance of finding appropriate work. They might at least get a casting call so the can be seen in the flesh rather than just as a name and a photograph.
1hr = 45 min
Generally speaking an hour of commercial TV equals 45 minutes of programme but factual programmes on ITV, C4, 5 et al all have so much padding - "comming next" before the ad break and the obigatory "recap" after the ad break (as though the viewers can't remember what happend three minutes ago) - not forgetting the "next time" trail at the end of the program that you're getting periously close to just 35 minutes of meaningful content in any hour.
This "cap" of advertising at 9 minutes an hour fails to take into account all the trails, repetition and "sponsored by" messages that make watching commercial TV an absoute pain.
It might be interesting to compare these clauses containing the weasle word "may" - making refunds at Microsoft's discretion - to the Sale Of Goods Act (and similar) where, in the UK at least, the buyer's contract is with the shop, not the manufacturer of the goods, and it is the shop that must provide the refund if the goods purchased do not work or are not fit for purpose.
I see no steganography here, only meta-data.
(IE there is a comment in the image file.)
Steganography would involve altering the pixels of the image itself to encode some text within it while leaving the image looking unaltered to the naked eye.
If you're still using Office 2000, XP (2002) or 2003 then get the Compatibility Pack so you can open and save files in the new Office 2007 & 2010 file formats.
