    Sad reflection on some modern societies

    Hi there.

    Looking at US and UK News currently --seems people can't wait to get away from Family and friends after only spending a few hours on Xmas Day with them.

    I'm reading endless drivel of "How much people will spend online on the DAY AFTER XMAS" -- don't we have ENOUGH spending nonsense already and how there will be a MASSIVE exodus to shopping Malls etc.

    Then looking at the sheer GREED of people as they scream, push and shove as the shops doors open barging everybody out of the way - doesn't matter if you are old or disabled -- there's just an almighty human scrum surging forward like Lions attacking their prey.

    What sort of nutters do we have on this planet who stand in a line for 5 or 6 hours to get into a shop at 6.00 a.m on a winters morning the DAY after XMAS. - Haven't they spent enough BEFORE XMAS.

    Probably 90% of these people going to these types of "Events" are probably ridiculously in debt already -- do they really want to take on MORE debt.

    Anyway to those who have NO intention of joining this frenzy -- well done nad have a great day either at home or going out to a sensible event -- theatre, Sport etc etc. BUT STAY AWAY FROM THE SHOPS. !!!

So, do you use W8 Modern UI apps? in Software and Apps
I am reading everywhere that Windows 8 is not being very successful by now, but the big thing with Windows 8 is Modern UI and the whole new ecosystem of apps, market and interface. And I still don't know how much are Windows 8 users using all of it. For instance, I never use Modern UI at...
Chrome in the Modern UI in Browsers & Mail
I have to say that I'm quite impressed with Chrome's Modern UI interface on Windows 8. It's nice to have a full desktop browsing experience without having to switch to the desktop. My days of using Opera as my primary browser may be over!
