Microsoft has shown/announced a lot of cool stuff that will work on the "next generation of Windows". If only half of it ever made it into a shipping version of Windows, I might actually consider Windows an option.

A TSA worker in Miami was arrested for aggravated battery after he attacked a co-worker for making fun of the size of his genitals. Rolando Negrin walked through one of the new body scanners during a recent training session and a supervisor started making fun of his manhood. From the article: "According to the police report, Negrin confronted one of his co-workers in an employee parking lot, where he hit him with a police baton on the arm and back."

PSandusky writes "A report issued by the Lower Merion School District's chosen law firm blames the district's IT department for the laptop webcam spying scandal. In particular, the report mentions lax IT policies and record-keeping as major problems that enabled the spying.

I think the story here is more that Slashdot is actually discussing this. I have to hand it to Microsoft PR department - they're keeping "the next greatest version of Windows" in the news, just like they've always done. This is just another way to keep Windows in the news. Got to keep the monopoly going!
