North Korean ICBMs Managed with Win8

Windows 8 scrubs North Korean launch

Kim Jong-un is wishing that he was still running Windows 95 like he was last year when they were able to successfully run launch tests.

The official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) stated that a launch test had to be put on hold due to “problems with Windows 8.” KCNA goes on to say that they are “working with Windows 8 support to resolve the issue.”

There is no word what the exact nature of the problems Jong-un was experiencing, but perhaps ctrl/alt/delete might work.

So what do you think was on that support ticket? I would love to know who the support staffer was so we could get a copy, but I am guessing that in the 'description of issue' section it went something like: "Failure to launch"

Causing this mixup in Japan

Nuclear launch tweeted by Yokohama - #by mistake

Japan jumped the gun (or missile) with a tweet on @yokohama_saigai that read: "North Korea has launched a missile", the tweet according to officials was prepared in advance.

Officials were notified about the error by one of their twitter account followers, and went on to say that they were not sure why it was sent. Within 20 minutes the tweet was retracted, and a apology was posted.

Tensions are high in the region with the growing rhetoric from North Korea continually escalating, which includes the threat that today indeed could be the day that a launch will happen. The Express reported "According to intelligence obtained by our side and the U.S., the possibility of a missile launch by North Korea is very high."
