Microsoft’s Ben Rudolph gives us the first look of the Nokia phones that will be launched with Windows Phone 8.
All in all, I’m seriously impressed with the new Lumias, both inside and out. Design-wise, they’re a nice evolution of the iconic design that Nokia introduced in the Lumia 800 and Lumia 900 – solid, ergonomic, and comfortable. And inside, they’ve added technology like PureView and PureMotion HD+ that offer up real, tangible benefits like smoother, faster, more responsive navigation and professional grade photos. Combined with the power of Windows Phone 8, they’re really something special.

Ars Technica reports that 90 percent of Windows 7 flaws fixed by removing admin rights
After tabulating all the vulnerabilities published in Microsoft’s 2009 Security Bulletins, it turns out 90 percent of the vulnerabilities can be mitigated by configuring users to operate without administrator rights, according to a report by BeyondTrust.
Ars Technica describes this as being good news for IT departments who can reduce security breaches by mandating the use of the ‘Standard User’ account, but it is still not common practice for home users to do the same.
