What amazes me no end is the hypocrisy of the DoJ...how is it...

Microsoft Announces Office 365 Personal Commented on: 5 weeks ago (March 13, 2014)

Lol...;) What are they doing in that picture, typing, supposedly? Yea, one of life's little pleasures--using Word without a keyboard with a 10" screen [not.] Ah, Microsoft's cornucopia of poor...

VLC Media Player Beta for Windows 8 Commented on: 5 weeks ago (March 13, 2014)

"It's only a beta, doesn't work with Windows RT, and doesn't support all of the file types that make the desktop version of this app such a delight."

I like 8.1.1, too...;) Still...
