Windows 10 may be Microsoft's last chance at staying truly relevant. This is a great post that looks at the state of Windows at the end of 2014 and what that means for Microsoft next year.

Amazon mistakenly ships a conveyor belt roller as a gift

Amazing fresh pizzas and salads. I don't think I have ever had such a great, organic, fresh meal from a restaurant before at such an affordable price. Everyone should visit here - you won't be disappointed. The vibe inside is good too, will absolutely come back.

Best Thai of my life. It is that simple. I eat a lot of Thai and wish I lived in the USA just so I could go here all the time. Get the mango chicken curry. I tipped these guys over 25%, they were that awesome.

Bad food, bad service, poor value for money and generally not a great place. Ordered a "Carbonara" that was just cheap pasta, cream, frozen vegetables and a few small pieces of chicken. No flavor, just crap.
