Spotify, Rdio, or...? What do you prefer? Why? Trying out Rdio and liking it so far.

I love Rdio. Playlists of what I want to listen to right then, and it syncs to my phone-picks up where it left off when I hop in my car.

My Samsung Galaxy S3 camera suddenly stopped working. When I try to launch the Camera app, I get the message "Camera Failed". When I use any application that uses the camera, those applications crash.

Apparently it's a common issue where the only permanent fix is to replace the phone.

Any recommendations for a new Android phone?

Galaxy S3 mini, although, beware, it has no indicator led. :-/

Windows 8 just doesn't make sense right now. The new OS forces desktop users to think like tablet users, and vice versa. It's shiny, but not as convenient as the iPad for casual users, and not as useful as previous versions of Windows for power users. It's an operating system that sits happily in mediocrity for everyone, trying to do everything without committing fully to anything.

I have a positive outlook for Microsoft still – I think the Surface Pro is on the right track – but I fear that if Windows doesn't get it right in it's next iteration, there won't be much more room for additional chances.

I tried to give the new parts of Windows 8 a fair shot when I upgraded. I downloaded some new Windows Store apps, and I even left the Start screen intact and didn't install something like Start8. The result was an exercise in futility. I could only use one Metro app at a time on a 22" monitor, which was a horrendous experience. I could snap a window to the right third of my screen, but that would actually shrink the workable size of my desktop, and I couldn't find a single Metro app that was worth losing that much of my display real estate. This perfectly demonstrated the fundamental problem of trying to use Windows 8 on full-sized PC: all of the new features fight with the old ones in a very fundamental way.

To add insult to injury, I discovered that a new process in Windows 8 called Runtime Broker, which manages permissions for Metro apps, had run out of control. If a developer uses a certain API call to refresh a live tile too often, the amount of RAM the process uses balloons from about 2MB to 1GB or more. My machine was running poorly due to a Metro app that I had stopped using weeks ago and completely forgotten about. I finally ended up uninstalling every Metro app just to be sure the problem went away, so now I'm no better off than I was on Windows 7. Just minus a Start button.

I don't think my specific experience is typical, but I think the overall conclusion I came to is: I just don't see why Windows 8 is worth the money or time investment. I like the idea of a ubiquitous OS and interface and I want Microsoft to fully realize the goal its going for. But right now, Windows 8 doesn't offer any tangible benefits to its core userbase of desktop and laptop users, which is exactly the wrong approach a software maker should take.

Is there a way to setup the default stream on the Google+ homepage. I'd like to follow a specific circle by default, and then have the option to see the stream for all circles on demand.

Very surprised at some of the 1-star reviews for Vingenzo's... maybe the restaurant was different years ago. I can understand some critique, but there is no way this place deserves a 1/5. This is one of the best restaurants in Woodstock, not some cookie cutter pizza place. Outstanding pizza, great mozzarella tastings, and a wonderful waitstaff.
