Windows 8 WinKey+Space

Today while I was playing around with Windows 8 (inside Parallels only, couldn't afford a new computer) I pressed WinKey+Space out of habit then just typed away... I meant to open Skype (on Mac) but I was still in Parallels so the Search Charm appears from the right side and start searching for Skype (on Windows 8). Doing a quick Google search didn't yield any results so this must be new eh?

Edit: Pressing WinKey+Space alone won't trigger anything but if some character key follows, the charm will appear...

Google freeandopen campaign special touch

Today, I was a bit surprised to see this post in my Facebook feed:


The post is from the official Google Facebook page. Amazing right? Blah blah Vietnam ICT scene is becoming larger and larger blah blah. However, I quickly saw the Sponsored tag and figured they must have post multiple posts in different languages then use the sponsor thingy to promote post to specific audience. I came to the Facebook page but only saw 2 posts (one in Vietnamese and the other in English). Strange. There are much larger market and this sounds just wrong...

Turned out, they used another nice feature for Facebook page:

 
Page admin can guard their posts by user location and language. Pretty useful feature from Facebook and nice touch from Google!
