Who cares if the pilot was the only one onboard, a crash of a full sized helicopter full of fuel is a significant risk to everyone in the vicinity. As to the charges, sure there's expungement (though in some states you can only expunge convictions, not arrests), but unfortunately for these guys they ran to the media so there's a more or less permanent record.

Non-competes are BS in almost all cases (if your title doesn't have a C* or *VP you probably shouldn't be asked to sign one), but as you say a non-solicitation agreement and nondisclosure agreement are probably fine for anyone dealing with sales or large amounts of confidential information.

Same with my first generation Toshiba 1080P LCD, I used the default blue skin for Mediacenter and it eventually left a red ghost that made me move it to the basement for the kids and replace it with a newer LED LCD that auto detects a static screen and turns off after 15 minutes.

Not in Ohio it doesn't, we have statewide franchises, and according to this almost half the states have state wide franchises. This is mostly because Verizon and AT&T wanted to make their lives easier when rolling out FIOS/U-Verse, but for the most part they'd apply to anyone willing to put in the paperwork.

I don't care about touch apps, I want all the good under the hood changes to go along with Windows Server 2012/R2, right now a lot of cool features only work if the clients are upgraded to Windows 8 and due to the UI screwups we can't possibly afford to do that so most of the best stuff on the server side goes unused. I'll probably start a major server OS upgrade push once 9 ships, we're already under an EA with software assurance so there's no additional cost for us upgrade once the training barrier goes away.
