Hey OS X & iOS experts: Can you help me solve a mystery?

Aereo's CEO says its Houston operation is already turning a profit. But this may not last long: The New York-based startup that streams broadcast TV over the Internet faces a showdown in the U.S. Supreme Court that could decide its fate. The Chronicle got an exclusive look at the Houston facility.

I guess "Microsoft is listening to its customers" is one way of looking at it. Then again, if Microsoft had listened to its customers, it wouldn't be in this position in the first place.
When Microsoft released Windows 8 and killed off the Start Menu and the Start Button, replacing them with a default startup screen featuring a series of big tiles to represent programs, users of it...

+Phil Ellsworth For me the search is not always useful in finding the right program. I have a few programs on my desktop that I rarely use so when the time comes to use it I need to see the entire list of programs so when I see it I will know.

No way in heck I could do this. My checking account holds onto money briefly until those pesky companies that I get services from want their money. :-)
I avoid credit cards after some trouble in the past.

Amazon's distributing store credits as part of an e-books price-fixing settlement. I got $12.43. How much did you get?
If you regularly buy books to read on your Kindle tablet, then Amazon.com, a long list of state attorneys general, big-name book publishers and the United States court system have a gift for you. ...

The creator of Flappy Birds finally surfaces, and says he killed his own game because it was too addictive. If only tobacco companies were this altruistic . . .

Mine has done this sporadically. And recently it freezes during a phone call and I can't hang up. Anyone else had this bit of grief?
