    Wow, you didn't have a Windows Live ID login right?

    I'd guess there's something with the .sql file with 8 that makes things different like that. Hmm....what?! How did that even happen? There must have been a Windows Live ID login or some such to do that because I can't find anything logical to answer that....

    Yeah, that may be the connection - my Win Live ID. I hope these new EU consumer protection laws will prevent them from doing that and storing my data.

    Unless, of course, you choose to let them.

    I think from an IT admin standpoint, Windows 8 in the enterprise will be GOD send. You can reduce cost by potentially not needing NAS setups, you just need to have users login with a Windows Live ID, and it connects them with their personal SkyDrive that they can access on any Live ID setup PC. But honestly, the Windows Live login is just the coolest thing EVER.

    I'm really surprised that they haven't figured out a way to get our fingerprints from using those touchpad
    on laptops yet. I would of thought that would be a no-brainer.
