You know the design is unintuitive - i had to search on google for the power off button. Really? How often are you going to turn off your machine - often i assume. IE opens in full screen mode - and it continued to - until in frustration i installed chrome. Then it runs in the  windowed legacy mode. The full screen mode doesn't work on the mac because when you pull your mouse down, it pops up the mac dock. I am already using active corners for other purposes on parallels - so that screwed with my experience as well. The whole legacy and windows app schizophrenia is really irritating. You never know what to expect from an app. its not seamless as they want it to be. I think this is a benign Vista from Microsoft. They are going to be disappointed by sales. With that much change, it is that much easier to switch to a droid or mac tablet. Its easier to switch from a windows 7/ vista to iPad than to switch to windows 8. I don't think they understand user interface design or plain design at any level. They also will lose the stranglehold on business - the future is more web based than ever.

Lately, I see a lot of fists shaking at God asking if God exists, why such carnage as Sandy Hook can happen. That is to me odd. The predominant word view of 21st century america being secular humanism with a hint of new age spiritualism to take off the edge, shouldn't the question be, "why the attention to sandy hook?". In a moral universe where the vanishing polar bear or more worthy of attention than starving, disease ridden african children, why does their wrongful death causes such hate against a god that is but a whim of ignorant imagination? See, in a universe where there is no good or bad, Sandy Hook is just a random event - like the breeze rustling the leaves. A random event in a chaotic universe devoid of all meaning. Thankfully, there is outrage. In a world inured to sickness and disease in the world there is outrage. But, in my opinion, it shouldn't be against God, but against our naive world view - that imagines the human mind capable of inventing its own morality and policing itself by it- in light of a world of evidence to the contrary. I think such evil proves its opposite (especially our gut feeling to it) - we yearn for the opposite of Sandy Hook. God is the definition of that opposite, only more in magnitude. He is the opposite of your own mild impulses to lie, to lust, to hate to kill, the sum total of all human injustice, avarice, abuse and hate. He is infinite love. He wishes for people to turn to him to be set free from this evil. Think about it.

The hand wringing is from the point of view of the victims and their familes. From all sources, it seems like the families of those kids and teachers were devout christians, so its not a random event for them. The question for them is relevance of faith or if the world is inherently nihilist. The prevalent belief system in the world is still one that is faith based. Some of the problems are simple to solve, some are complex but there are solutions for each.

Flipboard sure has a lot of competition now on the iPad. Here's +Sol Lipman holding his team's new creation, AOL's Editions. He gave me a tour today, very nice. Some differences between it and Flipboard?

1. It doesn't use your social graph.
2. It has an end page (it's designed to be a "quick morning read").
3. It uses http://www.diffbot.com/ which is a company started by a Stanford PhD student, which visually parses web pages and shares what it finds via an API.
4. It learns as you use it.

What do you think? Is it a Flipboard killer? I don't think so, but I'm enjoying it so far.

I was withholding opinion on Windows 8 ... I mean its microsoft they can buy their way through another 4 Vistas, but its telling nonetheless ...
The evidence is growing that Microsoft Windows 8 is off to a disappointing start. If nothing else, it is obviously the case that the debut of the new version of the OS has done nothing for PC demand, ...

They had no choice but to go down this route to unify touch and the desktop with legacy application support. I think if executed well they have a long term chance -- say in 3 years or so. The alternative was to fork the OS like how apple did.

Started a giant purge of my Google circles - I realize I don't have any interest in 9 out of 10 bozos I some how collected into my friends circle. Have no Idea how Google plus attracts such a high concentration of technology absorbed punks that because they learned to write hello world in Perl or watched some one do it- think that makes them competent philosophers.

you are still in my circles and I think you are a competent philosopher and have a reasonable world view. I have more of an issue with the ultra liberal , militantly atheistic presumptive types that are out there. With facebook, somehow I guess the groups are more homogenous - any case I dont need the aggravation.
