- One thing that people forget is that for all the negative press Windows 8 has gotten, it has actually sold reasonably well. I do have to wonder how much of the complaining is magnification of the normal resistance people often have when face with change.

- I think XP mode is set to NAT by default, and you need to change that to bridge so it can either obtain an IP from the network DHCP server or you can manually set a static IP on XP mode. Shut down XP mode and switch the XP mode network settings. I think that will take care of it.

- I think the best choice for high value data is not to store it on the cloud. If that isn't an option, use encryption for that data. A lot (most?) cloud providers use some sort of encryption, but you can use other options like TrueCrypt to protect your data.

- hughye answers Re: How long will Microsoft continue to support Windows 7, now that Windows 8 is out?According to Microsoft, mainstream support for Windows 7 will end on January 12, 2015, with extended support to continue until 2020. Incidentially, mainstream support for XP ended in 2009, but extended support is scheduled to continue until April 2014. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/products/lifecycle

- There have been some reports in the Brit tech press that The Linux Foundation is going to get a MS key and pre-bootloader so that Linux will be recognized as authorized software by Windows 8. This was described as a stop-gap measure in the piece I read.

- We have very little social media presence up to this point, a rarely updated Facebook page, and a moderated comment section on our website. I'm not saying that's ideal, but on the other hand it's pretty easy to manage.

- Really the only difference I notice from a end user standpoint is that the removable SIM card on GSM phones allows switching phones on a carrier by doing little more than switching SIM cards. Most of the rest of the world outside the US uses the GSM standard, so if you are a traveler, there is a real advantage there.

- I just got an email saying that the Raspberry Pi was going to be updated, but it didn't have any details. I had planned on getting one since they originally came out, but just haven't gotten around to it. Does anyone know what is new and when they are coming out with the new version?

- I've read various things about the upcoming iPhone including (1) it can't have NFC because it has a metal body, and (2) it has NFC because a purported photo shows a NFC chip. Does the first make the latter impossible? Can NFC work if the iPhone 5 has a metal body, as reported?

- I don't give Apple full credit for creating the smartphone, I just give them credit for refining it and giving it the current form factor with touch screen.

- hughye answers Re: Is it possible to do accurate predictive modeling in-house, or does it require outside expertise?One of my degrees is a B.S. in anthropology, and in that field agent based modeling, which is a type of predictive modeling, is sometimes used to objectively measure behaviors within populations. I had a professor who utilized it extensively in his research and I gained some exposure to the methodology.

- Well, that is one down at least. If just the biggest spammers can be eliminated it would make a huge difference. I'm surprised that there was a successful effort to shut down servers in Ukraine and Russia, to be honest.

- Companies make new announcements trumpeting the launch of cloud services on a daily basis, and it is hard to distinguish between the winners and the losers. As companies attempt to develop a comprehensive cloud strategy and launch offerings in alignment with it, what are the fundamental things that should be considered to maximize returns?

- Interesting vehicle! Unfortunately, I think your controller is probably not compatible with an iPhone 4S. It might be a bit tricky to find which part you need. I would suggest trying Skoda enthusiast sites, there has to be someone who has found a solution for this issue.

- hughye answers Re: Does the Flame malware that was reported in the Middle East have any wider security implications?Microsoft just released a patch a day or so ago that plugs the hole exploited by Flame (or at least claims to). Apparently Flame used a method that let it falsify a MS digital credential so that it looks like an update for enterprise users with remote desktops. And it was around since at least 2010. Which is nice.

- hughye asks Does data centre co-location still make sense for a SMB, or is it time to just go directly for the cloud?In many ways, both are providing the same service. We have co-located our data centre for quite a while, and in general found it to be effective way of controlling cost, both in personnel and equipment.
