NASA announced that the mission, dubbed GRAIL for Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory, was a success, giving them the highest resolution gravity field map of any celestial body.
Along with its primary science instrument, each orbiter carried a camera that took more than 115,000 images of the lunar surface. Before the mission began, groups of middle school students voted on what areas of the moon the cameras should target. The images are being sent to those students as part of the planetary studies program.
"Office 2013 is more "cloud-based" than previous versions.
This is notable as the default save location is the user's SkyDrive.
Office 2013 reached RTM milestone on October 11, 2012. Microsoft has planned general availability release for the first quarter of 2013."
Since Office 2010 there is also a x64 version, besides standard x86 (32-bit).
"Azure Mobile" is in fact universal back-end web service
for storing and sharing data from "Apps",
that could be Windows 8, Windows Phone, iOS, Android,
even regular Web apps...
The service is free (for up to 10 instances),
and it is running on node.js with SQL Azure back-end.
A very nice feature are auto-generated complete sample apps
for Windows 8, Windows Phone 8 and iOS (!)
Installing all required tools and SDKs is quite involved process...
Not too hard, just takes time...
