Wait... generation 2 already? How exactly is launching a second generation just four months after the first particularly beneficial anyway?

"But because he announced this on Google+, no one even noticed for a few days."

Couldn't have been said better even by Steven Colbert.

I am a college student, and I use a Surface Pro 2 as my daily driver. But in the classroom, I use it as a big front-end for OneNote with the bundled pen. An Arm-based Surface Mini device with a...

Type and touch cover 1 provided this functionality. It's just the second generation covers that broke it.

I personally prefer Metrotwit because of the columns layout, but I also run Tweetium as well. It really is one of the best Windows 8.1 apps in existence.

Even Microsoft uses the same password across multiple sites. Microsoft should use Lastpass or Keepass.

"AT&T Nokia 1020 Free" ... with contract, right? Is there a good off-contract price? Is there no escape from the very high off-contract price of the 1020 that's not signing off two years of...

If Elop wants to sell Bing, then I really don't want him to be CEO. Bing is crucial to Microsoft's consumer future. It's built into Windows 8.1 and Xbox. It's going to be a platform for developers...

"noting that product names like 'Nokia Lumia Windows Phone 1020'—which, by the way, is not what anyone calls that device—"

I don't even think Nokia calls this device that. Nowhere do the...

So... they lost 1 billion dollars on Surface on last quarter's report, and they did 17% better this quarter?

I would actually hope for a big jump after that.

Thursday, October 17, 2013 - 8:43am

Hmmm... So Microsoft is releasing the QFEs that delayed the GA of 8.1 a few days after GA? Wasn't the point of those to be available at launch?

My anti-malware is called Windows Phone 8 GDR 2.

I thought that it was in Tatooni.

If Surface 2 isn't a business tablet, then how can people use the iPad as a business tablet?

Apps, apps, apps! Developers need to make more apps for Windows RT, darn it!

You know that delta pilots tried to fight this because they wanted iPads, right? That's what appleinsider.com says. No bias there or anything :-)

Monday, October 7, 2013 - 10:53am

The iPad is a toy. An expensive toy. There's no way that the iPad can be successful. It doesn't even solve any real world problem. In fact, [in 2010] it's in it's own category, and there are no...

So you want Microsoft to stay in the enterprise space until that is taken over by Apple and Android, and once that happens, you want Microsoft to just continue to make software for those devices...

You don't know how much the Surface Mini costs.

Friday, September 27, 2013 - 1:29pm

"the release [of the Surface mini] might be further off than many expect (i.e., as late as this time next year). "

Good freaking grief. Here we go again, with Microsoft moving about as...

Why are people calling it Windows 8.1 RT when it's Windows RT 8.1? I thought we just went through this with Windows Phone.

Microsoft had annual revenues of only 7.5 million in 2000?

Wednesday, September 25, 2013 - 10:35am

I run Visual Studio on a 128gb Surface Pro all day. I even have the desktop DPI set to 200% instead of the default 150% to make it more touch friendly, which reduces the effective resolution. It's...

"Included accessories: Grade F"
Firstly: Get real, no tablet known to man actually comes with the keyboard accessory at its lowest price point. Why would Surface 2 be any different? I think...

I use visual studio daily, and let me just say: Metro has a long way to go before VS will work on it. I'm excited for how that will look, though.

Tuesday, September 17, 2013 - 6:59pm

Why are they not supporting vista and xp this time? It seems weird. After 8.1 is released, could one upgrade to 8.0 and then to 8.1 from xp and vista?

Tuesday, September 17, 2013 - 11:31am

By releasing the 5c, Apple has officially resigned from competing in the real world. Market share is no longer important to the company, the only thing that is important to them is that people...

Things will get better once metro versions of Office applications come out.
