Hotel room at The Mirage just last week: $79 (yes, nice rooms. If you want to go all out on a suite I recommend the Hard Rock Towers)
Absolutely awesome ~$70 steaks: The Homestead at Caesar's Palace
Really good breakfast buffet: The Wynn (~$25 or so I think, was a few years ago I stayed there) ... also, I enjoyed the Blue Man Group in 2008. YMMV.

It isn't an "upgrade bug" as the upgrade isn't slated for release for months.The build in question has only been released to the fast ring for Insider testing. In other words, it's only been given to those on the extreme bleeding edgeof Windows testing.Is Slashdot going to start posting articles for every minor issue in Chrome canary releases also?

Lots of people ask about this. If we did pure speech-to-text and text-to-speech, it would take about half the bandwidth but everybody would have the same synthesized voice. Once you start trying to add parameters to the synthesized voice such as pitch, speed, and tonality, those take as much bandwidth as we are using for the entire codec, because they are essentially the same parameters.
