(Re-)Embracing the PC Commented on: 21 weeks ago (December 2, 2014)

When you refer to 'toys' are you referring to tablets? A tablet could never replace a laptop for me. In my world these are distinct devices with their own uses. But, I've switched almost...

Microsoft's Game Changer: Cloud Storage is Now a Feature, Not a Service Commented on: 26 weeks ago (October 29, 2014)

This announcement is a significant one. Time will tell if it is a game changer. It does make the overall value proposition for Office 365 much better. I liken it to a car company offering 0%...

Short Takes: Microsoft Earnings Special Edition Commented on: 27 weeks ago (October 24, 2014)

I'm curious where Microsoft goes from here in terms of hardware. With the Surface Pro 3, I think Microsoft finally hit a 'sweeter spot' than before, and I have to think that is mostly because the...

Why is Google Reinventing Email ... Again? Commented on: 27 weeks ago (October 23, 2014)

It almost appears like Google is trying to remove references to "Google" for some of its services and products. Rather than Gmail or G-this or G-that, you have Inbox. I saw a two page ad in the...

Apple Quarterly Results Spectacular as iPhone Soars, iPad Stalls Commented on: 27 weeks ago (October 22, 2014)

I'd take 7% of a market that's in the hundreds of billions. Especially at 20% margin like Apple.

HP controls something like 17% of the market, but their margin is less than 4%. Which...

Thinking About Tech Pluralism Commented on: 31 weeks ago (September 25, 2014)

Microsoft is on the right path imo. They offer software and services - get those things to as many people as possible. I would really question using Office as a way to protect Windows. Using a...

PC vs. Tablet: Use the Right Tool for the Job Commented on: 1 year ago (December 4, 2013)

Great article! I'm a big guy too. I can fully relate. Full size laptops and desktops will always have a place for those people I refer to as "pwads" (people who actually do stuff). I've spent...

The Coming Windows XP Apocalypse Commented on: 1 year ago (August 6, 2013)

I've worked for two large companies, one 65000+ and the other 100000+. These are big ships with small rudders and something like an OS upgrade is no small undertaking. While in different...

Xbox One Launch Missteps Could Cost Microsoft Commented on: 1 year ago (June 13, 2013)

Microsoft missed a golden opportunity to knock it out of the park. Whether or not the requirements and functionality of the One are really an issue or not, Microsoft has completely botched the...

Schmidt: Android and Chrome to Remain Separate Commented on: 2 years ago (March 21, 2013)

It will be interesting to see where this all heads. Google has a big push underway for Chrome OS. I know of two school districts here that switched to Google Apps for their email, calendaring,...
