You are seriously out of touch. Windows phone isn't going anywhere if, for no other reason, the tech gains that Microsoft achieves from the product that's used elsewhere, like Lync and Skype. But...

I had no plans to see this movie when I first saw trailers for it a couple months ago. Then when the hack happened and those responsible threatened anyone who saw it, well, then I had decided I...

I am one of those people who embraced Windows 8 on a tablet and on a desktop and find its usability just fine, thank you. That said, I'm looking forward to 10 (though I will likely turn off the...

A VAT tax is not a no brainer. Since when does ANY tax increase job growth? The problem isn't taxes or how much one pays, the problem is government wasteful spending. If we can stop giving free...

I don't blame companies for trying to pay as little of their earnings to government as possible. Who doesn't? As long as no laws are broken I'm cool with it. Reagan was right, "Government is not...

Wait, isn't office on Windows RT already a touch-first version of Office? If so, the Windows version was first.

Just installed on my Lumia 920 and now half the apps won't launch. Anyone else have this problem?

@Time Agora: The problem is the UN - or whatever international body takes this over -- will not be neutral. Likely they will sell domains at a higher price to 1st world countries so they can sell...

Hope those XP folks moving to Windows 7 realize Windows 7's mainstream support ends in January of 2015 - less than a year from now. Switching to 8 at this point makes the most sense.

Why start their own when they can buy the Post Office? I'm only partly joking. The Postal Service has been hurting financially for a long time and Congress wont let them take practical steps (like...

My only wish list for my 1st gen Surface RT is a USB 3.0 port. 2.0 is so slow especially when copying video files. I'd love to upgrade to the new Surface 2, but can't justify it when I have the...

I don't buy that the enterprise will standardize on Win 7 and Office 2010 for a decade. The company I work for (around 4,000 employees world-wide) just finished the migration to Windows 7 and is...

I think the transition from XP is more likely responsible for the numbers than anything else.I expected, and still expect, Windows 7 adoption to grow until shortly after the Windows XP cut-off...

There is already a touch version of Photoshop out, its called Creative Cloud. Photoshop works well on a Surface RT or Pro. Of course the Pro allows pen-based input and drawing tools. Check it out...

Those desktop apps that seem so important now, will either move to the cloud (Like Adobe did with Photoshop and the entire Creative Suite), or will be broken into components.

For example, I...

I applaud Apple for their fingerprint scanner. My Motorola Atrix 4G (built more than 2.5 years ago) has this feature and I absolutely love it. I've wondered ever since why more manufacturers haven...

Perhaps I'm being overly sensitive, but it seems that across the site there is nothing but doom for the Surface RT. I'll grant that the numbers may not be good but its still an amazing device....

Paul, its getting harder and harder to read your site when all you do is bag on RT. Please stop the harping.

I found Windows 8 to run exceptionally well on a HP desktop manufactured in 2004, so it's likely most of those half-billion machines could run Windows 8 just fine.
