- We will probably learn specifics of release and retail price at Google I/O, and I am really curious where they will be priced. As was already pointed out, the current $1500 is not realistic for general sales. The hardware doesn't have a lot of really exotic components, so I would expect that price to come way, way down.

- I have home WiFi that includes open WiFi because my kid's friends are always coming over. This lets them get online to play games and chat with their portable consoles, phones, etc.,. This has worked pretty well and I don't have to give out our password to everyone.

- I have a personal blog, and I would like for it to do reasonably well so that I could eventually make a few bucks from it (don't worry, I'm not going to post a spammy link to it in my question). One thing I'm uncertain of is what bounce rate I should be looking for. What bounce rate would be considered good/acceptable for a blog?

- How do you get rid of all the EXIF data on images? I don't necessarily want everyone to be able to see the exact location (GPS data) where I took some of my older images before I realized that I could disable it.

- It's kind of like jeopardy, except you ask the question first and there is no prize money.

- With Google Glass, I think it is different because the initial batch is almost a public beta. I really doubt that this type of restriction will be in place when the product reaches the point where they are widely available for purchase without customers needing to apply for the privilege to buy.

- The ups and downs of bitcoins has been the focus of a lot of ink over the past month or so, but there is one thing that never seems to be fully addressed: Where do you get bitcoins in the first place?

- I'm not a programmer, so I don't have too much to contribute. However, when I was checking Windows 8 compatibility with older programs, I noticed Office 2003 had an "X" beside it indicating that it wasn't compatible with the newest version of Windows.

- Sorry, but as far as I know, there is no way to go back. I looked around Apple Support Communities, and that seemed to be the consensus there as well. https://discussions.apple.com/message/19736016#19736016

- Well, yes, he does have a point, at least somewhat. I'm not down with my information being given to a third party willy-nilly, but to some degree that happens nearly every minute we are online. I understand the need for Canonical to monetize Ubuntu, but I'm not sure this Amazon deal was the way to go.

- Google apparently made it easier to find animated GIFs (which I'm all for since I need to see many more images of cats, just like everyone else on the interwebs) but I can't figure out HOW you search for them. So, how do you actually search this treasure trove of time wasting, laugh inducing imagery?

- Are there any special tools required to disassemble an iPhone 4? I'm broke my screen into approximately 10,000 pieces, and I think I'll give fixing it myself a try.

- I've never had the opportunity to work from home except when I did it for myself. I found it to be a challenge to stay focused on working, to be perfectly honest. When a cat is on your desk, there is always a source of distraction nearby.

- If you like to use the patter lock on Android, you will probably like the picture passwords on a Windows 8 tablet. Instead of a 3x3 box of dots to connect in your chosen pattern, you take a photo and connect noses/elbows/clouds/whatever in a set pattern that you chose.

- One of the trends of the past decade has been a slowing increasing of the acceptance of telecommuting. Working from home is home is not for everyone or every company, but it works well for some.

- Windows Blue is an update to Windows 8, not a new version of Windows. I'm not sure exactly what will be updated, but apparently it is a major update, so......something. http://www.eweek.com/enterprise-apps/windows-blue-update-due-for-summer-...

- I never thought of it in those terms, but I basically stopped using Facebook because I got sick of a few people constantly sending me Bible verses, sometimes multiple times a day, and angry politically oriented posts that were often little more than insane conspiracy theories with no basis in reality.

- With the document open, click File > Recent. Right click on the open doc, and Open a Copy. This will result in the same doc opened simultaneously in two windows.

- I suppose it depends on how much you love your grandparents. If they are awesome and always gave you cool stuff for Christmas and your birthday, an actual iPad iPad would be nice, and the UI is very simple.

- ttopp answers Re: when i scan for network access sometimes fbi security van comes up is it real or a jokeSounds like someone just changed their SSID (network name) to "FBI Security Van." I named mine after my cat, but I assure you that she is actually sound asleep and not monitoring network traffic. Well, at least that is what she wants us to think.

- I was just checking our website's PageRank, mostly out of curiosity, and it got me started wondering, how much does PageRank matter? Does it make a significant difference to advertising revenue (which is not something that we really care about on our site)? Is it primarily for advertising purposes, or does it impact search results?

- Oh, my, that could bring out the true believers. I don't think the amount of storage is a huge issue, as we move further and further toward a cloud environment. I may be in the minority (or not) but I think the Surface Pro probably makes more sense for most businesses, simply because most businesses are a MS environment.

- When I try to print from OWA, I have to convert the document into a PDF, then save the file, then open the file (grrrr), then chose software to read the PDF, and only then I can print it. What am I doing wrong here? Is this really the way OWA works or is Microsoft just messing with me?

- For the money, I'd second the Wacom Bamboo drawing tablets. I've use one, and they are pretty neat. They make a few different versions. If you are buying for someone who is pretty serious about art, I would gravitate towards the bigger versions, like the Create.
