Thanks to the talented team at Sprout Social, the new version of Sprout Insights is finally live with responsive, mobile-friendly design and better content discovery. Been buried neck deep in this for weeks, so glad to see it live!

A long-awaited sequel to one of my all-time favorite barely heard of indie games is struggling for dear life on Kickstarter. Does a steampunk online shooter/LAN party take on the party game Mafia sound awesome? If so, join in and help these guys get it made!

For reasons escaping understanding I think Microsoft is actually trying to actively prevent people from buying Windows 8 System Builder. There's no mention of it at all on their new "buy Windows 8" website — just a download for upgrades. You can buy a DVD version from third-party retailers, but I own 4 computers and only one has an optical drive because, y'know, 1997 was 15 years ago.

But hey, I suppose it's not like there are millions of people who build their own PCs, dual boot Windows on Macs, or regularly use virtual machines for work. And it's certainly not like half the computers made nowadays don't have optical drives. Oh, wait.

Does anybody play PC games in Windows/Boot Camp on a Retina MacBook Pro? If so, let me know — I have a pretty simple question for you.

I think I may have actually dreamed an important work email I thought I received last night. I can find no evidence of it in inbox, all mail, or the trash. I need to start getting more sleep or something.

Here's my review of Microsoft's answer to Spotify and iTunes. I'm really impressed.
