While the numbers we have today do not lie, I have a hard time castigating Microsoft or anyone running the company for "missing mobile". They were and are undoubtedly late to the game, but let's...

re: beats

They obviously paid the extra 2b for the headphones. Whether they wanted it or not, that's what they had to do to get the part that people seem to think they were after, though I...

I don't know that I agree that there's any difference beyond the label itself. For one, these devices are still in a convergence period. Neither the devices nor the operating system are completely...

They did well, tons of great content with plenty of exclusives. The price changes, Xbox live changes and new games will do nothing but help them.

Thursday, April 17, 2014 - 1:14pm

I don't see it as blinking, it's customer service and that's something that Microsoft should always put first. Especially when dealing with its largest customers. It's dumb that they haven't...

It's the tract housing of phones, modular and completely boring. Has there ever been any modular electronics that succeeded? You always run into issues of new generation stuff that demands more...

The loss of domains.live is going to hurt. The funny thing was that a week or so ago I recommended it to someone and noted how Google also used to offer a similar free service, but dropped it for...

There's more to these numbers than just the numbers. It has to be noted that the big three all saw growth, with Dell and Lenovo seeing BIG growth. What that tells me is that quality sells and...

The game seems to be getting pretty great reviews and it seems to be the first real next-gen game, in that it's just different enough and pretty enough to stand out. It will be a system seller for...

First it has to be mentioned that the xbox one is around 3.6-3.8 million as well, so it's not like they're doing poorly, but the PS4 is doing better and I think it's safe to say they will continue...

It's still amazing to me that there aren't any commercials showing and talking about Xbox Fitness. People spend thousands during the holidays on fad workout equipment. It shows that Microsoft...

Paul,
The "how" is simple, IMPROVE THEIR PRODUCTS. I frequently say it in your comments, but this is the biggest software company in the world and you'd think it's a 10 man shop by the...

It's better to not make enough to meet demand and have them sell out than to make a million more than you can sell.

For all the doom and gloom around the PC industry in general and Windows...

Tuesday, December 10, 2013 - 2:00pm

These changes won't impact me either, but I welcome them back. Mainly because Windows 8 is such a fantastic "under the hood" upgrade that has been completely overshadowed by the Start Screen...

Tuesday, December 3, 2013 - 3:12pm

I personally feel that the Surface Pro or Dell Venue 11 Pro with associated desktop docks and mobile keyboard attachments are the first truly viable "everything" devices. It's pretty awesome to...

Monday, November 4, 2013 - 2:40pm

Thanks Paul,

I'm actually looking forward to running some desktop apps on my Venue 8 Pro. I like to get out and do weekend photography and I enjoy being able to review my shots and...

I've said it before and I'll say it again, within 10 years they'll be writing articles asking "What happened to Apple, again?".

Tuesday, October 22, 2013 - 9:11am

I don't really get why the 1520 doesn't have a stylus. A phone that big begs for it. Can't wait to get my hands on it though. If it's not too big, it'll be my next phone.

The 2520 is dead...

Thursday, October 17, 2013 - 11:08am

Is there any sort of offline or "for administrators" download available? I don't want to have to download this thing to every system I need/want to upgrade.

Tuesday, October 15, 2013 - 4:54pm

Paul,

Holy Cow, this expert "analyst" is a genius! /sarcasm.

He's not saying anything that anyone in large enterprise IT didn't know already. There are numerous articles to be...

Thursday, October 10, 2013 - 10:30am

Are tablet based Win8 systems included in this? I'm just curious because I expect to see a solid uptick in that segment in Q4. The importance of price and design can't be overlooked and those are...

Wednesday, September 25, 2013 - 9:27pm

Nice read Paul, but one thing I semi-disagree on and that's Microsoft waiting for 8.1 to be the initial release of Windows 8. There's no way they could do that because OEM's wouldn't have devices...

Tuesday, September 17, 2013 - 3:24pm

I agree that the desktop is dead and I have no problem with it as long as they have equally effective file management tools. Let's face it, RT wouldn't have shipped with a desktop at all if they'd...

Tuesday, September 17, 2013 - 11:15am

I've said it before and I'll say it again. In a few years we'll be saying "What happened to Apple, again?".

They'll continue to make lots of many for the next few years, but their run as a...

Thursday, September 12, 2013 - 9:27am

Paul, I still don't get the tenor of some of these articles. You gloss over Bay Trail like it doesn't matter and talk up Chromebooks like they're some sort of Trojan horse that will shake the PC...

Tuesday, September 10, 2013 - 4:45pm

The Apple of the future is the Apple of 1997 except there is no Steve Jobs to save them this time. Their brand value will continue to diminish as they are reduced to being a typical device...

Monday, September 9, 2013 - 1:30pm

The way Google is going, being an "advertising company" that only makes devices and software as a way of getting to your information, it's just a matter of time before the two sides get busted up...

Tuesday, August 6, 2013 - 9:43am

As someone who sells support and management services to a wide range of businesses, I think a big part of this is because XP was simply a good OS that still does its job well. There are also a lot...

Wednesday, July 31, 2013 - 9:53am

Surface RT (which I own btw) and RT in general were simply wasted money. While I believe that the Surface Pro needed to be built to kick the OEM's in the pants and get them to try harder on their...

Tuesday, July 23, 2013 - 7:18pm

Paul,

Nokia is doing well on the low end now and it's good to see, but real success will not be found until they put something out that can really compete with the latest from Samsung,...
