I have always felt this was the single most obvious reason PC sales have slumped. We're at a point now where an average, non-gamer consumer would hardly notice a bump up in performance after...
I'm happy I've grown beyond the whole "console war" thing. It's interesting to see how they compare, but I honestly don't care who ends up on top. I bought the console that excited me the most and...
Your response was almost as funny as that guy's comment.
I would absolutely LOVE a Lumia 1020 Wifi only. That phone is the only reason I am even CONSIDERING adding a data plan again (though most likely not).
Managing the datacenter with gesture and voice controls? Sounds intriguing to say the least.
I would abandon this pipe-dream of seeing the Start Menu making a return to Windows. If you learn to use Windows 8 you will find that it is much quicker and easier to get to your apps than the...

I wouldn't take his comment seriously.
Back on topic, I really liked the article. Good read and spot on evaluation. It would be really refreshing for the Win8 bashing to stop, and start...

You're not using it right, then. I have a Control Panel button on my task bar for quick access, pressing Win Key + F to find anything is pretty easy, and if you lay out your Start screen with your...
I think Microsoft is thinking the same thing. They call their Surface products PCs, even though their form factor challenges the traditional view of a "PC".
See? See what? 8.1 is a service pack and does not re-invent their UI, it enhances it. Get with the program.
I'm just as curious. That response made no sense. Carry on Paul, you're doing a great job.
At least you cannot knock your employer for a lack of courage.
I don't really see why Visual Studio would have to function any differently. It might be delivered through the Store and boot directly from the Metro side, but beyond that the program can function...
