Could it be used to spoof an ad server? I have used a number of Android apps that will continuously try to reach ad servers if you use any sort of ad blocks, which causes extra battery drain. Could this system be set up to send some placeholders so the app will stop trying to pull an ad?

What are you talking about? Windows 8 will run everything Windows 7 and before would run. Just because it doesn't have a Fischer-Price UI doesn't mean you can't use it with a touch screen. And developing for Windows 8 has the lowest cost of entry of any of the platforms, so it would be ludicrous to NOT develop apps that are desktop/tablet friendly for Win8 as well at iOS and Android.

Actually, since DC relaunched with their new "52" event, part of the changes included ALL comics being available in print and digital forms on the same day. So it's everything, from Action Comics to mini-series that are available in digital form the same day you can pick it up at a B&M.

In addition to the Momentus XT that several others mentioned, there is also SSD caching on Intel's Z68 motherboards allowing you to designate a 20GB+ drive as an automated cache of whatever data is traveling to and from your hard drives. The effects are quite noticeable and it seems like the system is pretty smart. Plus, it is done in software that is easily updated should a more efficient algorithm be found.
