Windows Gives Surprisingly ‘Small’ Tutorial For Surface
A surprisingly clever stunt by Windows last month that’s gets a clear message across in a simple way.

Bear Shocks Film Crew On Location With Washing Machine Antics
The chances of this happening are non-existent but that doesn’t stop this from being a curious video.
