I hope Firefox survives. I prefer it, primarily due to the tracking in Chrome & the fact I encounter a lot more issues with websites in IE. For instance, I can't even use IE at my primary bank...

Short Takes: June 6, 2014 Commented on: 1 year ago (June 7, 2014)

I'm still impressed by OS X's upgrade numbers, because I think it's a reflection on the quality of Apple's hardware vs. the typical Wintel machine. I know a number of people who are still running...

With PC Market Shrinking, Microsoft Looks Again to New Windows, New Intel Chips Commented on: 2 years ago (September 12, 2013)

I hadn't bothered to go to a Microsoft store to see Win8 running on a tablet, but I...

Singing the Password Blues Commented on: 2 years ago (August 20, 2013)

Larry Page Blames Microsoft for Rift with Google Commented on: 2 years ago (May 16, 2013)

This is why I think Windows Phone will never gain much share. The Google Android apps are just so superior, and it's all about the apps. For me and a few others I've talked to about it, Google...
