Install Windows 8 via USB on Various Devices
With Microsoft’s Windows 8 right around the corner, it’s only natural that interest is kicked into high gear. Two members of the XDA community, Recognized Developer Nullstring and Senior Member lseidman, have posted guides to help users install the latest version of Windows 8 onto their devices via a USB drive.
Nullstring posted a video guide that walks users through the process on a PC / laptop, as well as allowing for the OS to be dual booted along side Windows 7. Be warned the video is 46 minutes long and goes as far as analyzing boot speeds and setting up Administrator mode. XDA Senior Member lseidman has taken this entire process a step further and has provided an in-depth guide to installing either the 32 or 64 bit versions of Windows 8 on tablets and slates via USB drive as well. He too provides a video overview of the process, however, it currently only covers up to the point where the boot ISO is created.
Both of these guides are sure to be helpful to users looking to load Windows 8 on their respective devices, but who haven’t done so yet. So head over to Nullstring’s thread or Lseidman’s thread. Let the development commence.

Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...
The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....
This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place! When we get so involved in our...
