Big News Today . . .

   Today Microsoft announced that Windows will be free for 9 inch devices now! Now the hope is that developers will pass the savings on, and lower their prices to reflect this huge change.

   They also let it be known that in the next update for Windows 8 they’re putting back the start menu in a way. It’ll be a mix of the classic start menu, and metro tiles too. I still hate metro, but this is a decent compromise. It shows those metro apps as the sidebar gadgets we all knew they were in the first place.

   Oh and amazon released their new Amazon Fire Tv box too for $99. It’s not a bad deal really. The $40 controller might be a bit much though.
