    Hey - I know it's being picky, but this is one of those things that really is a pet peeve of mine: The title of your story about MS predicting lower counts for WM devices is grammatically incorrect. It's bad when it happens in the body of a story, but in a title, it's like slamming into a brick wall.

    "Less" devices is incorrect, it should be "fewer" devices. "Less" is only used when you're talking about something that can't be counted, like a volume of liquid, for example. If you can count it, then you should be using "fewer". And yes, the signs at Walmart that say "20 items or less" are incorrect too.

    Sorry about the soapbox, but you're writing for public consumption - I think you have an obligation to try and use the correct grammar, and fix it when you make a mistake (as we ALL make mistakes sometimes!) Thanks! :-)
