Itching for an iPad

While Serenity spends the week ransacking her parents’ home seeking the treasures of her youth, we delve into such matters as the changing (and downsized) face of Microsoft, the vanishment of the iLife and iWork brands, a question of Kickstarter co-opting, and I-spy-with-my-little-eye, China!
