Today I start with a great animation of Star Wars Episode IV which condenses the whole episode to one minute. That is well worth the awesomeness. So take a spin through Star Wars: A New Hope. Incidentally, these are the same folks that brought us the sixty second remake of The Matrix.
Then watch as Bill Gates talks about Steve Jobs. There are some very nice comments made by a man who has accomplished so much in his life about a man that accomplished as much in his short life. We can all agree that Steve Jobs passed too soon, yet Bill Gates says that he was never melancholy. He had planned to go on the yacht he was building (even though Bill and Steve knew the chances were slim he would make it).
Then there are some zany wacky Windows 8 ads over on Paul Thurrot’s site. Lastly, Woody Leonhard talks about what we shouldn’t believe about Windows 8.1.
Have a good day today. Here is The Daily Six Pack!
