Ex-Microsoftie Arrested for Pirating Windows Activation Software Commented on: 18 weeks ago (March 20, 2014)

If nothing this proves one thing - that somebody thought RT was good...good enough to steal.

Key Xbox Executive Departs for Sonos Commented on: 18 weeks ago (March 19, 2014)

I wouldn't be surprised if Larry Hyrb (Major Nelson) was next. I think the writing is on the wall at MS and those that don't care about MS and sick of the politics/drama are heading for the exit...

Microsoft Hopes Titan-Sized Game Success Will Reverse Xbox One Fall Commented on: 19 weeks ago (March 10, 2014)

At least they've got somewhere to go pricewise. Also Paul, do you know if they're losing money on the hardware?

Meanwhile, have they explained why anyone would want Kinect yet? MS keeps...

Short Takes: March 7, 2014 Commented on: 20 weeks ago (March 7, 2014)

Trenton stepping down is an easy one. Everybody knows console makers (except Nintendo) lose money on every sale. My guess is that with their losing so much on these that he's got to go now before...

Android Is Not Really Open, Secret Documents Reveal Commented on: 23 weeks ago (February 13, 2014)

BlackBerry Asks for Time, Faith Commented on: 40 weeks ago (October 16, 2013)

This letter is basically a cry for a better sales offer. Why do I say that? Companies don't normally tout how much money they have to consumers. You tell the consumer about how good sales are...

EU Poised to Settle Google Antitrust Case ... in 2014 Commented on: 42 weeks ago (October 1, 2013)

I don't think any of this is going to make a difference now, the damage has been done. (Almost) everybody and their grandma uses google currently so unless they shutdown for a few months or start...

It's the Real Thing: Apple and Google Surpass Coke as World's Most Valuable Brands Commented on: 42 weeks ago (September 30, 2013)

Can't say this is a surprise or news. The company that sells (arguably) luxury/fashionable devices and the other company known for giving stuff away for free are popular.

In Blockbuster Deal, Microsoft to Buy Nokia Commented on: 46 weeks ago (September 3, 2013)

My hope is that MS will treat Nokia the same way it treated Skype - very hands off. Nokia was doing great work for Windows phone (argruably, they were doing ALL the work) so It would probably be...
