New submitter gewalker writes "Bowing to significant unfriendly customer feedback regarding its new 'no transfer' license for Office 2013, Microsoft has reconsidered and will now allow Office 2013 licenses to be transferred between computers. Actual license language will not be reflected for a few months for shipped products, but Microsoft will allow transfer of license effective immediately. Calls to customer support will be necessary, as the activation servers won't be updated for a few months."

He'd rather buy cheap factories in India and China instead and import tyres back to France. This really places a question where is the equilibrium between unions and companies. In this case it definitely went all the way down on union side.

An anonymous reader writes "Whether or not you're an owner of Microsoft's Xbox 360, chances are you find the Kinect accessory intriguing, since you don't even need the company's console to use it. That's why there's so much excitement surrounding the console's successor, codenamed Durango: it will feature Kinect 2.0, the specifications for which allegedly leaked today. The new device will reportedly be able to track players with a height of one meter, feature a mode for both seated and standing players, detect hand states (such as open or closed), as well as extra and rotated joints. As for improved features, it will be able to supposedly track six rather than two active players, occluded joints, and sideways poses. This will all be possible thanks to an increased field of vision, 1920×1080 color stream, 512×424 depth stream, an added infrared stream, USB 3.0, and 60ms latency."
Ha! I'm guessing you're saying that you're on Android - what OS version, and what version of Chrome? Thanks! We test against the latest versions of Chrome (from the Store, not default packaged browser). What exactly are you seeing?
Hey Desler, we've been testing with the latest FF builds, what kind of issues are you seeing?
We really recommend you download the Chrome browser or the latest FF (as recommended below). Some of the default Android browsers are horribly out-of-date.
Thanks for the feedback - we found an issue with localStorage not playing well across our subdomains (tech.slashdot.org, apache...,etc). We're pushing a fix that should clear this up. And thanks for the tip with store.js
What version of iOS are you running?
