Enforcing fingerprint authentication on a mobile platform is the holy grail of corporate IT security. This article is not complete without the mention of this most important enterprise feature...

Everytime I'm at the Microsoft offices (NYC) they are always taunting their surfaces but when you talk to their reps they always admit that they love their iPads and their spouses love their iPads...

Microsoft reacted to the US Govt telling users to use another browser because Microsoft initially intended to NOT fix this bug. I agree that noone with XP should cry about not being supported...

Noone is surprised by the success of Office for iPad. Not only did we demand it into existence but intense pressure from institutional investors forced Microsoft to get this right the first time...

The weekly update should be more focused around Win2k12 server as a flagship and not Win8, there's a supersite for Win8 stuff. I have many colleagues who are managers and directors of IT who do...

This is one of those articles that makes me agree with others that say that "Windows IT Pro has lost touch with its base just like Microsoft has done". There is no impact to the enterprise (as of...

This isn't news. Bill Gates predicted this when ActiveSync was first deployed in E2k3. Of course back then Microsoft's only concern was Blackberry. With so many other office apps options out there...

At a recent technology symposium a 'PC guru' tried to claim that iOS/Android are only app launchers but Windows is a "real OS". His words were then used against him and everyone concluded that...

iOS and Win8/Metro both were new and given a fair shake, one was easy to use and even grandparents do not need help with use and the other is the complete opposite. This is not biased or...

LOL- multiple comments as long as the article itself??? WOW!!

What are your needs? For starters I need everybody to stop freaking out about Windows. Secondly, Microsoft has to stop being...

Tuesday, February 4, 2014 - 4:54pm

Nice write up Paul, it reminds me of several of my comments in posts past. It seems that all of the Windows developers have already left and went over to Android & iOS. I can't remember the...

This seems like a serious cry for attention. What is powering the cloud is not the hardware as much as it is the software pushing the hardware to its operating limits. It would make more sense if...

I can only assume that the author of this article was living in a cave in Seattle for the past 2 years or is consuming certain banned substances. How dare you call a product that received a $...

FINALLY!!! now we can stop making sales guys feel small and worthless now. #Windows8Died

YAWN, the state of windows right now has no relevance to an IT professional. PentonMedia really needs to filter Paul's posts for this update. CorporateIT is set on Win7 for the forseeable future....

And this is why Microsoft needs to stop the madness with devices and leave that to the experts. This surface nonsense trying to make the one universally perfect device is a billion dollar failure...

There is nothing or very very little you can accomplish with VDI that cannot be done within Group Policy. VDI in the cloud (a/k/a DaaS) is a far reach at best and makes no sense for streaming...

Microsoft's recent quarterly earnings showed an increase in business software sales. This is their domain that they will own always, they should stay in their lane and give up on devices which are...

WIndows 8.1/Surface 2 is a great restart to a failed launch but unfortunately corporate america has already made up its mind and this happened even before today's Apple announcements. Microsoft's...

Tuesday, October 15, 2013 - 6:13pm

I should start demanding advertising royalties because all of these articles are being spit directly from my commentary. To Paul and Gartner I say "YOU'RE WELCOME" now that you see the light I saw...

A main feature about a tablet form factor is weight and the surface 2 like its predecessor is just too heavy compared to an iPad which is the current business tablet of choice. The docking station...

I remember the days when "noone ever got fired for choosing Microsoft" was a motto. Now its more like "you'll probably get fired if you go with Microsoft" especially when it comes to...

Tuesday, September 24, 2013 - 6:15pm

Paul I applaud you for creating articles based on my comments. Its time for MIcrosoft to get back to its roots(software) and get MS Office for iPad out NOW!!! Sadly enough Google stepped in and is...

M$ does not hate IT Pros, they seem to hate losing. IT Pros need to adapt or leave the datacenter especially if they didn't see this coming by what M$' competitors are doing. No matter how you...

The real wins for Ballmer & Microsoft was the acquisition of Outlook and to bundle it with the Office Suite. Also the vision to push Exchange to corporate america by any means necessary even...

I have a simple rule concerning passwords. Make it something easy for you to figure out but hard for someone else to. Even those that do not take security seriously can benefit from the peace of...

For $15/day you can get unlimited data on an international mifi from vendors here in the states, It is the only way I travel and we just use Skype for phonecalls. I would send a link but I know...

At several Windows Phone/Mobile launch events over the past 5 years it was said that they coded it "from the ground up", wouldn't that mean that they didn't go with the NT code? Or maybe that's...

Thursday, July 25, 2013 - 4:22pm

The core element missing in this article is the "WHY" there is fragmentation. For starters just about everyone like myself with an Android phone got it for free or a steep discount ($99) via...

It really doesn't matter who is managing what division because the better move for Microsoft is to just FIRE BALLMER. Now instead they allowed Steve to take full control of the company. This is...
