Why is Microsoft / Windows 10 bringing the Start menu back? Well, we've got 20+ years of history with it
One of Windows 10's biggest "new" features has a pedigree that spans two decades.

Start menu is the #1 reason that I want Win 10. Doing away with the Start menu makes sense if you assume everyone is using a touch interface/tablet, but with a desktop and mouse the Start screen is too cumbersome.

Nope, instead they almost lost power to the secret studio because the building manager forgot to pay the electric bill.

The real takeaway, as noted by reader @NKrabben on Twitter: "Good news! We might be able to publicly perform 'Happy Birthday' again instead of those cheesy restaurant bday songs!"
A 1927 kids' songbook proves "conclusively the song is in the public domain."

Hehe same principle was used on a commodore 64 in a card game. You had to type cardplayer (name) and it would identify you on the basis how you've typed cardplayer and give your winning cards.

Okay this is way more elaborate but the concept is already very old.

For Edward Snowden: no pardon, no fair trial (no passing "Go" to collect $200, sigh)

+Zero Planck yeah, I am sure he considered, "lets see, screw up my life, run to different countries and hide there, always worry black suited commandoes will storm my room and take me off to torture" or "do it anonymously with no danger of discovery.."

Because people always choose the terrifying option over comfort.

So No, he couldn't have done it anonymously.

Consider this new phone hands-on week. Next up: the Moto G.
Better camera, Snapdragon 410, and a 2GB RAM option are the biggest upgrades.

Based on recent work, this was inevitable... we got an Amiga 500 now too.
Commodore's "Rock Lobster" brought low-cost 32-bit (sort of) computing to the masses.
