News Roundup 8/26/2013

What have we got today?

Quartz has a look at what’s wrong at Microsoft – and what needs to be done to fix it.  Excellent reading.  I’m still bullish on Microsoft, but they have some things to fix.

Heroes of Cosplay is having a Kerfluffle that looks to be nasty.  It seems NBC and SyFy used photographs without permissions of the photographers.  Then they got threatening towards the Cosplayers over who owned what.  Yeah, kinda ugly.

George Takei wants action on Russia’s Anti-Gay law.  Lending his voice the geek icon is going to be very powerful.
