Last night, we attended the launch of Windows Phone 8 – the cherry on the top of an image overhaul Microsoft’s been trudging towards for two years. That’s it now; the second coming of Windows is here – desktop, tablet, mobile and games console all singing from the same hymn sheet.

It’s not really a laughing matter – the Frankenstorm is enormous, and won’t be very much fun for anyone caught in its way. Google’s already (mildly) felt the brunt of it, having to cancel its Android event due to the potential for hurricane-based death.

If you’re reading this, chances are you’re quite switched on when it comes to the tech world. As such, you’re probably already getting tired of your living room glow box shoving Windows 8 in your face twice every ad break. But remember: not everyone is like you – and a new poll in the US has just duly shown Microsoft exactly that. Erm… Windows wha? Read more
