A lot of consumers, grew up using the Outlook software, (not outlook express), because years ago it came on the computer and we just like it better than the alternatives.

However since the...

"Apple TV sales have surpassed 20 million units, which was arguably the most surprising news in the call."

I love my Xbox One. But for the average consumer, it will not fly. It seems Ultra...

"I heard from several sources at the company yesterday—including one buddy who pinged me a bit incessantly via Skype" - so, can MS go through your Skype txts and find out who your "source" is?...

Consumers need "coddling", and MS does not go nearly far enough to coddle consumers. I would love to see Nadella actually focus on consumer, as he has done so obviously successfully in such a...

I don't think update 1 or whatever it is called is a mess at all. I suppose the leak process was messy, but we get what we ask for when we download leaked builds.

I have been giving MS the...

Does Google profit in any way on a deal like this without the Google services?

If you talked to 50 developers hypothetically, would they prefer developing for Android because it is easier...

Windows 7 was the much anticipated OS to follow up the big disaster. It was released to rave reviews that still stand up to this day.

Windows 8 was released in unfinished form, with...

When I get into the "zone" working on PC's time goes by pretty fast. I bet when Gates gets into the zone, he will be spending a lot more than just a little time at MS. Glad to have him back in...

Gates (and Ballmer) started this whole thing. So the idea that an outsider should be able to come in and cut and cull things is crazy unless Gates and Ballmer were ready to let go, which they are...

There is a great divide coming in computing between the consumers, and the creators.

Kids coming out of grade school know how to play games on an iPad, but put them in front of a real...

This is good, but Xbox One needs to get better. I love the voice commands, but they are flaky unless you are just going from app to app and sometimes the box just won't turn on. The speed with...

So we've gone from talking about the MS Monopoly of a few years ago, to all the great competition MS now faces. Bring it on. I miss Gates who used to refer to all these "problems" as "challenges...

Paul, is it this site, or is it my browser that forces me to sign in about once a week here? I can't figure out if it's IE 11 or what, it drives me nuts, why can't IE 11 solve this issue? Happens...

" they've asked the United States and other governments to curb their spying activities"

I almost hit the floor on that one. At least when they subpoena your data that is not in the cloud,...

About that Start Menu panic comment. Windows 7 followed a universally panned Windows Vista. It's no surprise that it became so popular so fast. All the news headlines were pretty much praising it...

I'll never go back to non-touch ultra book. It is way to convenient to pinch and zoom in so many areas. No track pad, not even Apples cuts it in that department for myself.

The problem at...

"A decade ago, Microsoft's strategy for handling Apple was to ignore it. Microsoft's executives never mentioned Apple or its products at public events or in commercials. And over time Apple ate...

My biggest challenge in teaching folks the best way to start out with Win 8 is convincing them to change their email to one that is modern. I have a lot of folks that are still on their Comcast....

Android is doing to Apple what Microsoft did to Apple in the 90's. Only problem is they're doing it to Microsoft too! :) Imagine if Microsoft had tried to release a free OS to the marketplace,...

So sick of the RT bashing headlines around the blogosphere. That's right, RT doesn't suck and far from it. I'm sure your daughter isn't too happy she can't play Minecraft on RT yet, but everyone...

"Should a future version of Surface RT with a better chipset combine with future advances in the platform, apps availability and content ecosystem , then that will mean that my complaints have...

Saturday, July 20, 2013 - 12:41pm

oroslak, I won't reply to Paul on this particular subject because he's sick of hearing positive things actual users of RT have to say. You can pretty much wrap Paul's take on RT as being a tablet...

"Panic mode"? Nah. This was obviously a beta test. It was never priced to sell, it was priced to get it into the hands of the hard core fan base, so that we could put it through the motions, sort...

Microsoft seems to be missing a very important point lately, maybe because stuff wasn't ready yet, or maybe because they are just stupid. I think it's because stuff wasn't ready yet.

"if the average license sales of Windows 8 are found to be less than 20 million units a month".... "then Windows 8 is a failure."

That statement is overdoing it, Vista could be called a...

I can see one thinking that the tablet OS as it resides on a desktop computer, could be called horrible. But the tablet OS as it resides on a tablet is outstanding.

The phone guys got it right from the start, most of it. 3 dots to signify "something" is there. In Win 8.0, you got ZERO. No indication whatsoever. The addition of an arrow on the start screen, a...

"Does something that looks and works exactly like Windows 8 without offering that crucial software compatibility make any sense at all?"

You must live in a world where all users are smart...

At my Staples on Cape Cod, in Orleans, Ma. I asked the lady behind the counter if they had and Pro's in stock. She said they had two and mentioned something about the storm. Two? Anyway, we did...
