I now own a computer with Windows 8, so I'll judge for myself whether everyone's griping about the way it's all laid out is justified. So far I'm fairly okay with it. The layout of the 'start' menu throws one for a loop, but some of the features look really swell. I'm not entirely sold about it though, and I am still exploring the extent of it's customizablity. I'm also not a fan of how much Windows wants me to be connected to shit in "the cloud". I find I'm constantly telling programs to not do that when I first open them.

I am pleased that I was able to get a terabyte of storage on a laptop in my price range. :D Hooray for Moore's Law! 8)

We sell 2TB portable drives at work. I'm surprised I haven't seen them in laptops yet. Biggest we have is 1. My LT is a 500gb, and I've barely used 1/4 of it in 4 years.

I've already filled a quarter of this one and I've only just started transferring files over. I [s]hoard[/s] download a lot of stuff.

I have the news that Firefox 23 was released a week ago. And it adds new features and security to the open-source browser! Sweet! 8)

Just one of the reasons why it's a good thing I bought Windows 8 to replace my broken Windows XP over a month and a half ago. :cartmansmile:

Good. I had to downgrade because the last "upgrade" kept crashing left and right.

*DID YOU KNOW* you can telnet into some web servers @port 80 and type in stuff? looks like a hack to me, only thing I can surmise is a buffer overflow. whitehouse.gov has port 80 open to telnet too.

Who's using iOS 7.0.2? I think it's the greatest OS for iPhones/iPod Touch yet. The Airdrop feature is great - just share in seconds contacts, for example, with friends and co-workers.

Before the end of this month Mavericks, OS X ver. 10.9 should be released.

Thanks angeldeb82 :)

Adobe is supposed to notify me of these updates; they never have, not even once.

Thanks for finding out about this latest update!
