- I think to a large degree it is people being uncomfortable with new technology, even though most of the technology in Glass is repackaged existing tech. Christopher makes a good point, though - currently if you are walking around being a creeper with a cell phone, it is pretty obvious.

- Unlike some other devices, the S3 doesn't come with a microHDMI, there is only a USB port. I have everything on my phone - Netflix, Youtube, Break, etc. - and as much as I like Samsung's display, I enjoy my HDTV more. Is there a way to connect the phone to a HDTV to watch movies/videos/whatnot?

- Google is an international company. It has customers in many countries that practice many religions, or none at all. Just a glance at Wikipedia shows that, in addition to Christians, there are 1.5 billion Muslims, 1.1 billion non-religious people, and 1 billion Hindus, in the world.

- Following up on what Christopher said, I would make sure that the physical construction and design of the facility were in line with the types of weather/natural disaster events one might expect in that location.

- Christopher pretty much covers it. It's amazingly how a momentary slip-up can cause a major head ache. Good luck!

- I think it is out of balance, and I entirely agree with Christopher's contrasting example of bankers and execs getting off with ZERO personal liability when their actions ruin people's lives. I personally lost well over $100,000 when the financial system nearly collapsed, and I don't know when I'll ever catch back up.

- I haven't tried it in lately, but Google Earth hasn't always worked very well with Linux. In any case, HERE is the download page. It requires LSB 4.0, so if you don't have 4.0, you will first need to get the required LSB from http://www.linuxbase.or/download/

- You need to follow the counter-notice and put back procedures laid out in Sec. 512 of the DCMA. Once you provide a proper written counter-notice stating the material does not infringe copyrights as claimed, the service provider has to promptly notify the claiming party of the your objection.

- It will never happen, I'm afraid. The news reports were misleading. All the FCC was calling for was open spectrum to allow business or other entities to buy spectrum to build out super WiFi networks.

- Nope, but there are many companies that are out there trying to gather EVERY bit of information about each of us and monetize it, these guys are just playing the game on a different field.

- Along the lines of what you mentioned - worries about data security are still the biggest hurtle. I can certainly understand that, particularly with respect to mission critical applications/data.

- Another year, another set of challenges. What disruptive trends will have the greatest impact on IT for companies in 2013?

- Definitely. Aside from the practical applied uses of mathematics, it teaches an ordered, methodical and logical approach to problem solving, which directly applies to challenges of programing. I think there is a reason you see relatively few programmers with English degrees.

- I would say that the 2600 would not deliver the same performance as the 3500 - it will deliver superior performance. The 2600 has a max 450Mbps data rate, whereas the 3500 has a max data rate of 300Mbps. The 2600 is a 3x4:3 access point vs. the 2x3:2 3500.

- The International Telecommunications Union meeting in Dubai has some people freaking out, with commentators on both the left and right decrying the death of the open internet. Fox News even went so far as to warn that "the future of freedom in the 21st century" is at stake. How much of this doom and gloom is legitimate?

- Like Ryan mentioned, I hope that you drink your coffee black with no sugar. It's not too hard to clean a keyboard that has had "plain" coffee spilled in it, but sugar makes thinks sticky, and it's a lot harder to get everything to feel right. Nothing worse than that sticky feeling....ugh.

- You can download Windows Media Center for free (not for much longer though) to get DVD playback. There were some other alternative listed in a short article here on IT World not too long ago. What I would be careful of is spammers offering you a DVD player at a hefty price. Try one of the options listed in the article.

- It definitely still matters. Just because there are a lot of common components, that doesn't mean that they all are. I had an 32" RCA that I used for a laptop and gaming display in my home office.

- rousseau answers Re: What do people think are the most important attributes for a good landing page?My first rule is no audio or video that auto-plays. I just hate that personally, and I think it drives a percentage of your traffic away. That percentage is probably small, but there I doubt there is anyone who decides to stay on the site because of it, so there is nothing positive that comes of it.

- Putting aside who you wanted to win the presidential campaign, one thing that I was interested in was the Romney campaign's Project Orca, which in concept allowed real time updates to individual voter status as reported by in situ observers at polling stations. In practice, Orca was a wonderfully named fail whale example.

- I like to think of myself as being pretty pro-privacy. As a user of quite a few Google services (gmail, maps, search, play, youtube, etc,) I signed up right away when Google made a monthly activity report available to show how Google was tracking me. So I looked at it the 1st month, glanced at it on month 2, and have deleted it ever since.

- Responsivator will provide a preview for many platforms. Just enter in your site's URL and it will show how it will look on most common platforms. It's super easy, and a lot less clunky.

- I'm not sure about all of the differences, but there are certainly enough to warrant waiting for Windows 8. Remember that RT was designed to run on the kind of ARM chips that smartphones use. There are quite a few applications that Windows RT cannot run, like anything but the newest versions of Office.

- Sorry, I totally missed that you said in the question header that you upgraded to Windows 8 Pro. I should follow a version of the old carpentry rule of measuring vs. cutting and read twice, post once.
