Hilarious!
Why you shouldn't ask for suggestions on Twitter if you're a terrorist group. 

Al-Qadea asked for suggestions on Twitter about the "development of jihadist media" triggered a highly predictable avalanche of snark. 

One helpful user tweeted a suggestion for "Al-Qaeda, the movie: Dude, where's my car bomb"

Another suggested: "More cats in online video releases."

Anyway, the Twitter trolling of Al Qaeda continues. Here's the hashtag, currently trending on Twitter: http://goo.gl/IQhKHP

But analysts skeptical that either move will significantly boost sales. One worries that Microsoft and its OEMs are 'giddily' rushing to the pricing basement, where it can't compete against Android.

Office Home & Business 2013 pre-installed on Surface Pro tablets set to go on sale in Japan June 7 ... analysts see the move as heralding change in Microsoft's tablet strategy. More emphasis on Surface Pro as a business hybrid -- part tablet, part ultra-thin PC -- seems to be the path Microsoft will take with 10-in. devices powered by Windows 8. Which leaves the expected 8-in. Windows tablets for consumption, consumers.

Next for Opera: Norwegian browser beta now uses WebKit rendering engine, sports revamped Speed Dial, adds support for Google's SPDY in low-bandwidth locales, and spins off baked-in email client to a separate application. No word on when Next will go final; spokeswoman says only 'later this year.'

I love the idea of manufacturers offering stock Android versions of their popular phones, but the more I think about this new "Google Edition" approach, the stranger it seems.
