Short Takes: June 6, 2014 Commented on: 15 weeks 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...

Microsoft Warns of New IE Flaw, Will (Probably) Not Fix on Windows XP Commented on: 21 weeks ago (April 28, 2014)

I work in healthcare, and as recently as maybe late 2012 or early 2013 we had a client complain because changes to our platform wouldn't work with IE6.

We still find ourselves having to...

Cars Are Another Market Where Windows Suddenly Can't Compete Commented on: 28 weeks ago (March 6, 2014)

Yeah, they have blown it repeatedly, haven't they. Back around 2005 I bought a Palm Treo running Windows Mobile. You could get on the Internet in a pinch, but the browser was horrible, the...

Short Takes: February 28, 2014 Commented on: 29 weeks ago (February 28, 2014)

I dated a girl last year who had a Macbook Air running 10.6. The 10.9 upgrade wouldn't run on that hardware. The amazing thing to me was that the notebook itself was 6 years old (now on 7) and...

I think MS has a lot to do when it comes to the tablet experience, and I'm not sure 8.1 is enough.

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: 1 year ago (August 20, 2013)

I use a password manager and have different, long, randomly-generated passwords for every site and don't really find it much of a hassle. I don't like the way Windows is moving towards using a...

City of Boston Drops Microsoft for Google Commented on: 1 year ago (May 17, 2013)

What specifically are the security and privacy risks associated with Google Apps?

Larry Page Blames Microsoft for Rift with Google Commented on: 1 year 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...

Windows 8 Sales: Hot or Not? Commented on: 1 year ago (March 5, 2013) I have spent a lot of time with Windows 8 (I downloaded from MSDN the first day it was there), both as an upgrade and a fresh install at work and at home. I've given it a shot because I figure...
