SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: February 10, 2012

Another work week has come to a close; happy Friday, all. While you were busy wrapping up this first full work week of February, we were tracking the news of the day. For starters, hacking group Anonymous has decided to take credit for crashing the CIA's official website. There's nothing they won't do, is there? Read on to find out what the other big stories were...

Featured: You've not doubt heard a lot about Windows 8 so far, and it is perhaps the most confusing Windows release yet, what with different versions for different devices and all that. So to help ease some of the questions, we've put together an article called SlashGear 101: Windows 8 on ARM. Be sure to check it. Also check out our review of SkinIt's metal plate for the iPhone 4S. We're talking about custom-etched metal plates here. Pretty cool.

Trends: So the next time you rent from Hertz, you might be interested to know that it is implementing a wireless charging system for its EVs. And after you feel good about driving an electric vehicle and taking care of the environment, you can also sleep in peace knowing that a new study suggests US box office sales are completely unaffected by Torrents. They're still illegal, though. And finally, for you Apple fans - MacBook Pro 2012 refresh set for Air-like thinness, next-gen specs. Well that's all for today. Have a good weekend everyone.
