It's always the "fourth Thursday of November".
And Black Friday (the day for crazy sales that people camp out overnight for) is the day after Thanksgiving.
If they can build the Surface RT and have it run all the Windows RT apps, then what's to stop them from allowing the X-Box One from doing the same?

Sorry, my C3409TOIKJERC2RIOKFSOI GJRIOT cat just jumped on and off my desk.
Many of the early posts seem to misunderstand the vulnerability issue here.
This is not about your phone getting infected with malware that allows it to detect your PC keyboard typing.
This is about me putting the vibration-detection app on my own phone, and then going to someone else's desk and recording them logging in.
So, imagine me going to my local AT&T store, bank, or my boss's computer, and casually setting my phone down while they log in to check my account or whatever.
Granted, some of those systems will require more than just a password (I might need their username, or the URL to log in, or perhaps their firewall only accepts certain IPs), but it's still a considerable weakness if this application is reliable and gets out in the open.
I can imagine keyboards that are "vibration silent" or special "vibration absorption" pads that will prevent this from happening. Either that, or customer service reps will start saying "Please remove your phone from my desk while I access your account."
And there are 91,440,000 micrometers in a football (US) field.
Glad that's cleared up.
I don't know, but all of the other updates to Windows were deployed through Windows Update. I don't know why this would be any different.
It also means they are telling you that they didn't make any real changes and are charging you for the service pack they refuse to create for 8.0.
8.1, or SP1 if you prefer, is a free download.
I believe the person is referring to the hacker's own personal blog/story, not the post that the hacker made to Facebook -- which I presume is private.
Except that the iPad doesn't ship with a keyboard either. Granted, you can pick up iPad keyboards for about $50, but I don't think they're as slick as the Surface keyboards.
The current Surface Pro does come with Windows 8 (the full version) and a Intel Core i5 Processor.
I was a huge proponent of Trillian (and a paying customer) for quite some time. I used it to connect my AIM, ICQ, MSN, and Yahoo accounts.
At about the time I ditched ICQ, it seemed that Trillian was getting bigger and more bloated with features I didn't care about, and had frequent connection problems. And so I tried Digsby and loved it.
Then I believe I got a new computer, and for about a week I forgot to install Disgby. Turned out that nearly everyone I wanted to chat with was either on Facebook or SMS, and so I gave up on Digsby.
It's been well over a near now, and all I use are Facebook and SMS, and occasionally Skype. I can't think of a single person I've lost contact with because of that change.
Yes, but those are free apps and are quite stable.
Hardly the accusation in the post that I replied to.
Of the games you listed:
- Monsters Love Candy (Microsoft)
- Shuffle Party (Microsoft)
- Gunstringer Dead Man Running (Other Ocean)
- Fruit Ninja (Halfbrick Studios)
- Gravity Guy (Mini Clip)
- Samurais vs Zombies (Glu Games)
- Reckless Racing Ultimate Edition (Pixelbrite)
Only two were actually created by Microsoft.
And none of them have the combination of in-game ads, paid-for, and super buggy.
Micropurchases (what you call nickel-and-diming) is hardly the same thing as paying $5 for a game.
And FWIW, Shuffle Party has a 4.5 out of 5.0 in Marketplace.
If you're having such a problem with all of these apps with high ratings, perhaps there's an issue with your phone or carrier or some third-party unauthorized app that is screwing things up.
Please list one or two. I have never seen a single Microsoft app that has advertisements, are "buggy as shit", or even require payment. Let alone all three!
