A video posted today by Microsoft – Windows 8 is coming soon. It’s interesting that the Surface (Microsoft’s own tablet lineup; the RT version is launching on October 26th) but that they instead just showed their partner’s products – they’re probably trying to keep their partners happy even though they’re competing with them. You can see the video below:
Windows 8 was revealed last September with a developer preview, and with a Consumer Preview (aka. Beta) coming out later this month, the official Windows 8 logo has been revealed. Below you can see the new Windows 8 logo, and underneath previous Windows logos:
There are going to be a lot of changes in Windows 8, including the following:
- Brand new user interface (as well as the desktop) aimed for tablet users
- No start button in the desktop
- Faster performance
I’m really looking forward to Windows 8, and it’s scheduled to be released this Autumn.

Describe the perfect crime. Exciting topic! Well…
It would be in the HQ of Microsoft. The aim is to get information about Windows 8, and all the features. It would be the perfect crime – no-one would get caught or hurt (well, not too much ). A person would get a job in Microsoft, then find an excuse to visit the HQ. They would take a toilet break, but actually listen in on a top-secret meeting about the features of Windows 8. They would then sneak away (after, of course, making everyone go to sleep using gas and disabling all the CCTV cameras with their pen) and never be seen again…
That is quite a basic crime. I’m sure you guys can think of better ones. So what is your perfect crime?
On a related topic, why exactly do people do crime? Only themselves benefit, and at least one other person suffers, generally. Like stealing, for instance. True, they get some free stuff, but what about the victim of the crime? Even if the thief stole something cheap, it would still have some consequences for the poor victim. With murder, the bad is clear. The criminal gets rid of someone. The victim… is currently dead, so they can’t comment on the story. I’ll get back to them ASAP. Seriously, though, crime is no laughing matter. Well, not really. If no-one committed any crimes, no-one would have to worry about locking their doors, or being wary of strangers. That is a world I’d like to live in.
