Ignored the warning.
Now get a blue screen on boot / hibernate resume if a USB mouse isn't plugged in!

Is anyone actually running Windows 8 that has commented here? It's loads faster (on my relatively old laptop) - long time issues have been fixed for copying files etc and it's stable. The menu is quick - you just hit the Windows key, starting typing and hit return to load programs. This method is rapid, reliable and beats the heck outtta Windows 7 - for visual users the tiles are going to work well.
There are a couple of UI annoyances (wish I could lock the metro screen to one of the desktops) but you'd expect that with a radical overhaul of the UI (Ubuntu Unity anyone?) and some system issues (the sound gremlins aren't quite gone).
... taking my contract elsewhere. Not sure if it's the merger with T-Mobile but the Orange network can't cope in Manchester. Signal frequently drops, calls lost when the phone is switching between cells, many calls go straight to answer phone when the phone shows full bars.
It's not just me - everyone I know on Orange is complaining. The future's elsewhere everytime.
Just flicked onto "Channel Five", no sorry, "five" - oopps no, I do mean "Channel Five" and they started the Justin Lee Colins thing with the old 'five' dog - it was quickly removed and there was no dog until after the break. Well if they can't get it right then how am I supposed to?
Wait... are you saying that total of all e-book sales beats the corresponding sales of the paperbacks for titles where an e-version exists?!?.
Worth remembering that publishers are probably targeting the correct types of books on the e-book platform... e.g. younger readers - I doubt they put many Mills and Boon titles out as e-books.
Still quite astounding though!
I was travelling for four months across India, Sri Lanka and Nepal. Every time I logged in from a new region in India or a new country this photo validation fired up.
It's surprisingly well written and designed actually - they realise that not all photos are perfectly tagged so it's not one strike and you're out. It randomly pics a few photos (so unlikely to expose anything) PLUS you need to have got your password right first to see the pics!!!!
Credit where credits due - I thought this was a very novel approach to ensuring account security and having had a few other accounts hacked from internet cafe key logging I'm all for it! HTTPS won't do anything for the key logging!
I have a Hero - everyone I know with a Desire says the same thing - we need a battery that lasts 2 days. There is no point in owning a smart phone that needs to be plugged in every 8 hours - I need to be able to leave the house and know I'll still have a working phone at 1AM to ring a cab!
