An iPad Lover’s Take On The Surface With Windows RT | TechCrunch: "I could go on. And on. And on. But I’m around 2,500 words now and I realize that I’ve already lost most of you as I’ve just been dragging this device through the mud since I started. The point is, you can’t just have this many bugs, performance issues, and overall mindfuckery and still expect this to be a good device."
Windows 8 — Disappointing Usability for Both Novice & Power Users (Jakob Nielsen's Alertbox): The worst gesture might be the one to reveal the list of currently running applications: you need to first swipe from the screen's left edge, and then immediately reverse direction and do a small swipe the other way, and finally make a 90-degree turn to move your finger to a thumbnail of the desired application. The slightest mistake in any of these steps gives you a different result.

The opinion makes reference to a number of popular books and films featuring ghosts, including Shakespeare's Hamlet and the 1984 movie Ghostbusters and uses various words meaning "ghost" descriptively throughout (e.g., "in his pursuit of a legal remedy for fraudulent misrepresentation against the seller, plaintiff hasn't a ghost of a chance", "I am moved by the spirit of equity", and "the notion that a haunting is a condition which can and should be ascertained upon reasonable inspection of the premises is a hobgoblin which should be exorcised from the body of legal precedent").
MMM the beer is cold I should just blog these things as ids, here it is world, the scum of my thoughts, ifltered through deurnken figners, perolated though barely and hops and I think there's snotmein to that I can't believe how bad this is, it's like watching train wreck in character format, an ASCII train wreck, whoops, here comes Unicode!! Oh, my! See, if you slow down and watch what you're doing, then it comes out all right. It's when you look off to the left and let your eyes unfocus that the fingers just go all wild and make their own decisions and what's that? They are fingers. They weren't meant to decide except by einy miny miney moe.
