    Windows 8 Advertisements/commercials

    How do you guys feel about the Advertisements/commercials for windows 8? I like the TV commercials or video commercials. I'm not a fan of the print advertisements such as posters and such.

    Maybe it's just me but I went to the metro start screen to try out the metro internet explorer but I don't see the icon and I searched for it but only the desktop version exists it seems.

    Pioneer Studios closing and Microsoft Courier becoming iPad app

    I don't know if this is the right place to discuss but I'm sad to see the innovative team behind some of the more interesting Microsoft products being closed down. So now I don't even know if they will even come out with any more innovative products. One of my favorite ideas from Microsoft...
