* Windows 8.1 released this month. The up-grade is 3.5GB. So big that you need to bring your computer to the stores to up-grade.
* Windows 8.1 restored some Windows 7 functions such as the START button.
* Browsers: IE and Chrome are OK but Firefox has some problems recently.
* Browsers: The difference between Cookie and Extension.

* Movie editing using Movie Maker: Tracks cannot be previewed.
* DVD-R copy: No TV to DVD recorders are found in stores. Why?

* JCCC is providing free WiFi in the 1st floor (It is too weak in the 2nd floor)
* It is illegal to "holding a cell phone" while driving (even if you are not talking)
* Autonomous driving cars are almost here. Traffic laws and insurance need to be adjusted for them.
