Windows 10: Charms Bar Removed, No Start Screen For Desktops
Charms bar? Continuum?
Names used to be fairly intuitive, and even when they weren't completely intuitive their names were derived from their technical function. I'm thinking "context menu", "start menu", "task list", "quick-launch menu", and "system tray".
Now they're just marketing doublespeak.

Dragon Age: Inquisition Reviewed and Benchmarked
It's interface is a mess on the PC with KB/mouse. It is visually good, but nothing groundbreaking. The game really feels like a LOTRO rip-off though, except with a lot more interface and design bugs.

I like the game so far, but I am not in love with it, the design flaws make it hard to love.
Using Wearable Tech To Track Gun Use
criminals won't wear them when committing a crime. Even embedding the devices into the body would not work reliably as anything that can be put in can also be taken out. I bet an EMP device could also be used to disable them without invasive surgery.
What you'll end up with is a bunch of data on people who are not committing crimes, and a scant few pieces of data on the dumbest of the dumb who would fire a gun with one of these on.
