Putting the Win in Windows 9 Commented on: 3 days ago (August 26, 2014)

MSFT needs to regroup around Win7 compatibility with anything they do with the Win32 API in Win9 (i.e. make it available as a Platform Update for Win7 or something similar). ISVs like me cannot...

Short Takes: July 18, 2014 Commented on: 6 weeks ago (July 18, 2014)

About the MSFT layoffs, don't forget to include the 20% reduction in contract workers noted in the various statements. That's a pretty big number as well.

I don't understand why you're...

Internet Connectivity Woes Threaten "Mobile First, Cloud First" Commented on: 7 weeks ago (July 8, 2014)

We were just in Barcelona at the Hotel Jazz. Great WiFi internet access, which was a tremendous relief after suffering poor WiFi on a long cruise (internet access at sea is always slow but the...

Small Business in the 21st Century Commented on: 8 weeks ago (July 2, 2014)

Also, you don't need to wait to see what happens when MSFT screws up a...

Microsoft Earns Less, But Beats Expectations Commented on: 18 weeks ago (April 24, 2014)

About, "but rose a surprisingly strong 19 percent for Windows 8.1 Pro". Without units that number is basically meaningless. Did they go from 100 units to 119?

It's Official: Microsoft Releases Office for iPad Commented on: 22 weeks ago (March 28, 2014)

Win8 (WinRT+Metro) is...
