@JohnAskew: Agreed, but I'll wait until they can figure out why it works. :P
In fact, the mysterious drive actually worked even when they modified it in such a way it shouldn't have produced any thrust.

@DeathByVisualStudio: Do you really think Chromebooks will ever be more than a novelty? People have moved away from traditional PCs.
@bondsbw: Except for the pricing, OEMs did this and it just didn't sell. ASUS VivoTab RT, Dell XPS 10, Lenovo IdeaPad 11, Surface RT, Samsung Ativ Tab...people weren't interested at $400-$500. I don't think dropping the price to $200 would make a difference.
What Microsoft really needs to do is make a Surface Pro 3 with an i3, 4GB RAM, 128GB SSD and sell it for $600 with the TypeCover included. It would place it solidly in the market of the Dell Inspirons that fly off the shelves at the local big box store.
@CoderRajat: Or better yet, capture all of the details when you populate the dropdown and store them in a Dictionary using the country name as key.
Then you can just say countryDetails["India"] instead of parsing the XML file each time.
@androidi: I've got a 1600x1200, 15.9" viewable CRT that I use at home. 125dpi makes things the "normal" size and I get much more crisp text.
Your "solution" would either make things enormous at a 172dpi setting, or keep things tiny at 96dpi, unless I'm misunderstanding you.
With that said, I don't understand all of the complaining either. Every application I use that was written after 2005 supports high DPI just fine.
"India and China figured that out for themselves" and are currently spewing tons of pollution into the air and strip mining for coal. Short term gains may be higher with fossil fuels, but I agree with Bill - renewables should be pushed in developing countries.
