    IN PICTURES: Microsoft Sydney flagship store opening - all the colour and action (+46 photos)

    ​Microsoft opened its new flagship store in Sydney, the first outside of North America, with some pomp and circumstance, to a big crowd of several thousand - some of whom had been queueing since 6.15pm the night before.​ There was caps and water for virtually everybody, major prizes from the Microsoft range, and the first 750 through the door got two complimentary tickets to an exclusive Jessie J concert at the State Theatre. Microsoft executives from the US, civic and state government leaders, joined MIcrosoft Australia MD, Pip Marlow, and Sydney store manager, Nick Wells, in celebrating the opening of the super store.

    In Pictures: Houston, we have a bug - 9 famous software glitches in space

    There’s never a good time to run into software bugs, but some times are worse than others - like during a mission to space. Spacecraft of all shapes and sizes rely heavily on software to complete their objectives. But those missions can be quickly ended by the simplest of human errors when writing code. The omission of an overbar here or overflow error checking code there can mean the difference between success or failure, not to mention the loss of hundreds of millions of dollars, years of work and, on manned missions, human life. Use the arrows above to read about 9 examples that show that, despite the care with which these systems are built, bugs have occurred in spacecraft software since we started to fling rockets into space - and will, no doubt, continue to crop up.
