has announced that the Start menu will be coming back to
Windows 8.1 and showed off what it will look when it arrives later
year. This is a huge win for those of you who have wanted a Start menu
on Microsoft's latest version of Windows, and it will likely silence
some critics of the platform. Another new feature that will be coming
is that you will be able to run modern apps in a windowed environment
too. The Start menu will be returning to Windows in a future 8.1
update, which is in contrast where we heard that the Start menu would
come to Windows with Windows 9.
- How Dropbox Knows When You're Sharing Copyrighted Stuff - For
years now, Internet users have gotten used to the risk of having files
and content they share through various online services be subject to
takedown requests based on the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA)
and/or content-matching algorithms. But users have also gotten used to
using services like Dropbox as their own private, cloud-based file
storage and sharing systems, facilitating direct person-to-person file
transfer without having to worry about such issues. This weekend,
though, a small corner of the Internet exploded
with concern that Dropbox was going too far, actually scanning users'
private and directly peer-shared files for potential copyright
issues. What's actually going on is a little more complicated than
that, but shows that sharing a file on Dropbox isn't always the same as
sharing that file directly from your hard drive over something like
e-mail or instant messenger.

- T-Mobile to Do Away with Employer Rate Plan Discounts - Beginning
April 1, T-Mobile
will no longer offer monthly discounts to employees of certain
companies. In the past, T-Mobile offered these discounts to help close
large corporate sales. Given the changes T-Mobile has made to its
service plans and device purchasing policies over the last year,
T-Mobile feels the practice of offering employer discounts is now
outdated. In its place, T-Mobile will offer those employees $25 toward
the purchase of a new device. "This change is about simplifying
wireless for everyone, including employees of small and large companies
alike," said T-Mobile CEO John Legere in a statement. "It's simple,
clear and transparent – like everything we do."
