There are still plenty of V8s that purr today, though most won't as loudly with stock exhaust. I am a fan, however, of the way the 500 Abarth does it. The former Chrysler SRT exhaust tuning wizards managed to make an exhaust that's quiet enough when you want it to be, but raucous and raspy when you get on the gas. No fake sound needed.

People may drive like assholes, but at least they never go fast enough to kill you (unless you fall under). Also, in my experience, it's the pedestrians and the cyclists especially that just do whatever they want. The motorists weren't that aggressive, outside the taxi drivers, who unfortunately still make up like 20-30% of vehicles on the road.

In all fairness, those that may wish to put security solutions in place may need a way to justify the increased cost of additional security to the larger shareholders, who often can't see the forest for the trees. You'd think those shareholders would just invest in IT/security companies...

I've been using AirWatch for some years now, and it works great. There's nothing "cloud" about my environment either... I hope this isn't the beginning of the end, though. With them leveraging a piece of AirWatch for something else, I hope this isn't a precursor to the discombobulation of the MDM suite...

I use the Citrix receiver, since the Windows App Store version doesn't start up stuff (like the Citrix Connection center) when you log into your PC that disables window effects/themes. It also doesn't throw annoying icons in your start menu and on your desktop for remote apps. Great for the PC you only occasionally connect to Citrix with. I also use a cool Kanji lookup app on my convertible ultrabook. I have a few games I've bought through it, but it's pretty minimal.

Those who claim the dead never return to life haven't ever been around here at quitting time.
