Critics Call For Probe Into Google Government Ties
To be frank, if someone is broadcasting unencrypted data then Google has done no wrong by mining that information. Had they of been actively circumventing encryption to do so I could see a case in that but this was naked data. You don't sue someone for invasion of privacy when you paint your home with your secrets.
Windows 8 To Be Released In October 2012
Perhaps they'll make Windows 8 more compatible with XP programs. Though I do find it upsetting that companies don't update their software on a regular basis to work with more secure platforms. It's one thing to not fix something that works, it's another to still be using IE6.

It'll be hard for MS Office to come up with something that would make someone want to change over or at least pay full price for MS Office.

Go in a sandbox game, turn on god mode. I don't think you'll be helping old ladies across the street. Personally, when I have a massive amount of power in a game I'm pretty much a dick unless there's the incentive of more power. Black and White 2 for instance, I'm always Good aligned until the end of a map, then I just don't care and start chucking people around I rule the map bitches. You can see this in everyday life too, people with quite a lot of power being pretty close to what one would define as supervillainish.

72% of US Adults Support Violent-Game Ban For Minors
