Forbes is reporting that Intel is going to take on the cable companies and offer a la carte TV channels to their set top box. The Wall Street Journal reported on the same idea way back in March of 2012. We'll see how things turn out...but we won't be hearing about it during CES. Make sure to check out Gizmodo's write-up on why a al carte programming might not be worth it for consumers.

Patrick goes over some options to hopefully fix that "Windows did not shutdown correctly" error. And while we're on the topic, you should set up a Windows restore point now!
Mike is a grad student that needs a cheap screen recording program that he can make edits with.
