Microsoft Windows 8 (Daily Shop)

Microsoft Windows 8

Until now, touchscreen PCs were little more than gimmicks – finger-friendly add-ons to a very mouse-oriented OS. Microsoft Windows 8 ($TBA) looks to change all of that. By borrowing heavily from Windows Phone 7, Redmond has built a touch-optimized, tile-based main interface for Windows 8, melding the user friendliness of modern smartphones with powerful PC features like complete access to the file system, the ability to see more than one app at a time on screen, and desktop caliber apps — although we’re still trying to figure out how you’re supposed to use the Office toolbar without a mouse.

We’re already living in the future, so why is it we still need silly things like cash and credit cards? Google Wallet (Free) is aiming to get rid of those relics from a bygone era by connecting your credit card — Citi MasterCards or Google Prepaid cards only, to start — with your NFC-capable Android phone to let you pay at any PayPass-capable terminal, and also letting you take advantage of exclusive Google Offers to help you save money at the same time. Next up? The flying car.

Unless you’re a design geek or a Coca-Cola fanatic, odds are you don’t realize that the fizzy stuff’s iconic contoured bottle wasn’t released until 1916, over twenty years after it first appeared in bottles.

Just getting started in the motorcycle scene?

Sporting a stylish retro design, the TU250X features a 249cc four-stroke SOHC engine, a five-speed transmission, a diamond-shaped steel tube frame, front disc and rear drum brakes, and a low 30.3-inch seat height that’s great for beginners.

Hot on the heels of its Boxster S cousin comes the Porsche Cayman S Black Edition ($67,500). Like it’s black stablemates, the Cayman S Black sports a modest 10 hp bump that’s good for a 0-60 time of 4.6 seconds and total output of 330 horses, as well as a six-speed manual or Porsche-Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) seven-speed double clutch transmission, 19-inch black wheels, monochrome black treatment on the exterior and interior — with a touch of aluminum and stainless steel to mix things up a bit — and standard features like dynamic Bi-Xenon headlights, auto-dimming mirrors, and the touch-screen Porsche Communication Management system with navigation, a Bose surround-sound system and XM radio. If you want one, you’d better hurry — only 500 are being made.
