Tech Predictions for 2015 Commented on: 1 year ago (December 29, 2014)

"But Microsoft has made all the right moves to position Windows 10 for a comeback. "

...except for the timing. Way too slow.

You'd think a company with this level of resources could...

Google Details Gmail Scanning in New TOS Commented on: 2 years ago (April 16, 2014)

I wonder on what basis the scroogled campaign was successful? Seems to me it just makes Microsoft look desperate.

Trying to make people use the cloud? Requiring a MS account to run their...

It's Official: Microsoft Releases Office for iPad Commented on: 2 years ago (March 27, 2014)

"Another case of Microsoft's existing customer base being relegated to a persona non grata status."

Mark, your statement presumes that current iPad owners are NOT part of Microsoft's...

The Case for Wearable Devices Commented on: 2 years ago (March 25, 2014)

"Although it's convenient—and a bit cheap—to constantly harp on Microsoft's inability to follow through on a promising initiative of the past, this time it's not the software giant's fault.

Microsoft Has Sold Over 200 Million Windows 8 Licenses Commented on: 2 years ago (February 13, 2014)

If MS sold 20 million copies of Win 7 a month, and suddenly 8 came out, why wouldn't they sell 20 million a month of 8? If it were perceived as good as 7, then companies getting ready to upgrade...
