Windows 8 enables significant, always-on integration of those aforementioned apps and their data. Exhibit A: The live tiles concept behind Windows 8's Modern UI, formerly known as Metro.

When you want users to do something, make it easy; countless surveys say SMBs haven't been particularly good at backing up their data. The devastation caused by Superstorm Sandy serves as a reminder of why poor backup practices can be a huge problem.
