Perhaps you haven’t seen an honest movie trailer lately — or ever. We recommend this one, for “Gravity.”

Rumors: A clear preference for the next Microsoft chief?

http://windowssecrets.com/rumors/a-clear-preference-for-the-next-microsoft-chief/

Never more so than these days, with the release of Xbox One, the end of the hated stack-ranking employee-evaluation system — and especially the question of who will replace Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer.

This photograph of Alan Mulally was produced by Agência Brasil, a public Brazilian news agency.

Don't miss this week's Top Story: Botnet innovation: Resistance is (nearly) futile

http://windowssecrets.com/top-story/botnet-innovation-resistance-is-nearly-futile/

Botnets are not a new threat, but they are a serious one. Amassing the resources of possibly millions of compromised PCs, attackers use that combined power for all sorts of nefarious activities.

Introduction
Our history

The Windows Secrets Newsletter began with the merger in July 2004 of two high-tech e-mail newsletters: Brian’s Buzz on Windows, edited by Brian Livingston beginning February 2003, and Woody’s Windows Watch, founded by Woody Leonhard in 1998. The two publications merged on July 22, 2004, and began using the domain name WindowsSecrets.com. Brian’s 50,000 subscribers joined Woody’s 100,000-strong list to form a combined, unduplicated subscriber base of about 140,000.

The LangaList, an e-mail newsletter edited since 1997 by Fred Langa, merged with Windows Secrets on Nov. 16, 2006. Adding its 145,000 subscribers resulted in a publication with a circulation of about 270,000.

The Support Alert Newsletter, a publication edited by Ian “Gizmo” Richards for most of its existance from 1998 to 2008, merged with Windows Secrets on July 24, 2008. Combining Support Alert’s 150,000 subscribers with Windows Secrets pushed the total circulation over 400,000.

Today, Windows Secrets is also distributed via an RSS feed, and the site delivers more than 1 million page views per month.
