ORIGINAL POST: Just heard from a source that Microsoft might be planning a publicity stunt tonight:

Windows is going to black out Times Square at midnight tonight then 'reboot' the screens with Windows 8.

So if you're planning an Ocean's Eleven-style heist that involves Time Square, you may or may not have several seconds of darkness to play with this evening.

What do you think?
