Microsoft Fixing Windows 8 Flaws, But Leaving Them In Windows 7
The problem I have for Windows 8 is that the keyboard DOES pop up when hitting a textbox... when I have a hardware keyboard attached.
Define "hitting a textbox". Do you mean touch it (assuming you have a touch screen), click it with the mouse, tab to it using the keyboard, ...? In a set-up with both a touch screen and a physical keyboard attached, which is common in a lot of new laptops, if you "touched" a textbox then I think it's reasonable for Windows to assume you want to continue touching rather than switch to keyboard input. But if your set-up has no touch capability at all, then yeah, it's dumb to ever see an on-screen keyboard.

The obvious solution is to use a Bag of Holding. However, good luck finding one that's waterproof. :(
Microsoft Promises Not To Snoop Through Email
Who's the braintrust that decided to use a Hotmail account to coordinate the stealing of Windows source code? Ignoring the expectation of privacy for a moment, that was just plain dumb.

Nokia Turns To Android To Regain Share In Emerging Markets
Go re-read the GP's post again. I understood it just fine. Nokia had hired them to write apps, and had asked for apps for the J2ME, Symbian, Android, iOS, and BADA platforms; but not for the QT platform. So naturally they didn't spend any time developing for the QT platform. You quoted the first half of a sentence, but the second half of that sentence is important too.
Google Removes "Search Nearby" Function From Updated Google Maps
With so much focus lately on the anticompetitive and environmentally dangerous practices of Big Oil, we've let Big Broth go completely unchecked. If we aren't careful we'll end up in hot water. Albeit, hot tasty water.

Snowden Document Shows Canada Set Up Spy Posts For NSA
Covert Operation Collecting Knowledge, or COCK for short? Which clearly would not be the same as spying.

If the USA says they won't prosecute him, I believe it. Note that the USA did not bother to prosecute Osama Bin Laden.

Using laser printers would be fine as long as you don't use the Arial font, as that would invoke too much suspicion.
Ubuntu Wants To Enable SSD TRIM By Default
Windows 8 still includes the TRIM operation on deletes. It also includes the TRIM in the new 'defrag' tool.
The defrag tool isn't sending TRIMs, the file system is. The file system sends TRIMs for clusters that get freed for any reason. One reason a cluster would get freed is of course the file gets deleted. But another reason is that the file gets defragged. Say there's a request from the defrag tool to move a particular file VCN from LCN1 to LCN2. Then in the same transaction LCN2 gets allocated by the file system and LCN1 gets freed, and so LCN1 can now be TRIM'd. All of this is being performed inside the file system completely transparent to the application. The only application that explicitly sends a TRIM is format, which sends a TRIM for the entire volume.

Mac OS 10.9's Mail App — Infinity Times Your Spam
You can't call it a bug unless you know what the design intends. What if this program is supposed to continually print "Hello world" over and over forever? Then it is working as intended, by design.
US Nuclear Commander Suspended Over Gambling
Look, I don't see a problem with him gambling. *Unless* he bet on war. That would be just a no-no and would go against all established tradition. If this scumbag bet on war, then he deserves a lifetime ban on war and any war-affiliated events. He should also be permanently barred from induction to the War Hall of Fame.
Bill Gates Acknowledges Ctrl+Alt+Del Was a Mistake
Apparently in Ubuntu it's now RALT-SYSRQ-K which I haven't tried. But ALT+SYSRQ+R-E-I-S-U-B works wonders during a hard lockup where CTRL+ALT+F2 doesn't function.
Another useful one is ALT+SYSRQ+R-E-I-S-E-R which kills the current process.

The original Surface kickstand already had 2 positions. The kickstand was either "closed" (flush with the device), or "open" (protruding at some angle).
