      @maguay It's not only Microsoft who uses this dirty trick. Practically every software reseller does this. Also Adobe and Parallels. Creative Cloud is already expensive in the US. But over here it's even pricier.

        @maguay Here in Europe they simply changed the $ sign into a € sign, which makes it 25 percent more expensive over here than in the US. :-(

                @stefp I have a three-year old MacBook Pro here that I upgraded to Mavericks. Since the upgrade, performance has been awful at random times during the day. I also have 8GB of RAM so I can rule that one out.

                    @stefp Same here. I even haven't upgraded OS X on that machine. Still running Snow Leopard and running very smoothly.

                      While we have no evidence that confidential information was exposed in this case, it's good practice to consider changing your password on App.net and elsewhere on the web.

                                Alpha would be so much cooler if they supported inline images and animated GIFs. Or at least give users the option to embed them in their timelines.
