    Each one of these must be a nightmare to the developers but with the exception of Kojima, they're all hilarious in retrospect.


    Didn't think I was gonna get a history lesson, but that Spanish Flu bit was really interesting, @burnie! Thanks!

    This is my weird 2016 event.


    I'm outraged that the design of the Microsoft Surface 4 and Surface Book have the square Windows logo positioned so I can't use the 5" Achievement Hunter vinyl decal like I could on the Surface 3 -- perfectly centered with a simple utility knife cut across the seam. What am I going to do?! Why you do this Microsoft?!


    (I'm looking into the AH emblem, but I want to know about this "adhesive strip" first. It would fit above the kickstand even in the docking station (which is actually the same docking station as the 3 with a little booster seat for the 4). I'd still prefer the flat decal, though.)

      Microsoft has no idea how to design UIs or name/number things anymore. Xbox 3 is Xbox One and Windows 8.3 is Windows 10, and both 8 and "10" use an interface that throws 30 years of innovation out the window to do something edgy. They're trying to be so edgy they called Internet Explorer 13 "Edge." So edgy!
