The Case for Wearable Devices Commented on: 17 weeks ago (March 25, 2014)

While I don't for a minute defend the many boneheaded decisions Microsoft has made, I'm not throwing the baby out with the bathwater, either. But opinions presented the way you have just anger me...

Need to Know: Windows 8.1 Update, Future of Office 365 Commented on: 17 weeks ago (March 19, 2014)

Has anyone found a way to fake the update out into thinking I'm not using keyboard and mouse...yet still use them? I want to be able to disable ALL the interface changes. I don't want the title...

Cars Are Another Market Where Windows Suddenly Can't Compete Commented on: 19 weeks ago (March 7, 2014)

What I think is ridiculous about ALL this is why any car maker is going with ANY system. In my opinion, these dash units should be device & platform agnostic. They should be merely an...

Nokia Announces Android-Powered Smartphones Commented on: 21 weeks ago (February 24, 2014)

Yes, absolutely agreed that Nokia's devices division is still owned by Nokia and they can still do what they want. But it really does still beg the huge question regarding why Nokia would push so...

Short Takes: November 27, 2013 Commented on: 33 weeks ago (November 27, 2013)

Paul, I have to ask (since I've not seen you actually address this aspect of when you bring up dumping Bing & Xbox): what exactly do you expect those entities to do on their own and how do you...

Ballmer Exits, Windows 8.1 Is Finished Commented on: 42 weeks ago (September 26, 2013)

Wow. AGAIN with the Start menu. And AGAIN with the desktop dinosaur. I don't understand why there is still such resistance to embracing the Metro interface in general and the Start Screen...

With PC Market Shrinking, Microsoft Looks Again to New Windows, New Intel Chips Commented on: 44 weeks ago (September 12, 2013)

I think the most realistic understanding of the market from here on out is this: People will have MULTIPLE devices. They won't have JUST a PC or JUST a tablet or JUST a smartphone/phablet. They...

Build 2013: Big Applause for Windows 8.1, But Questions About Windows Phone and Xbox One Commented on: 1 year ago (June 27, 2013)

Oh, you mean Microsoft is doing it pretty much the way Apple did, huh? Steve Jobs made it quite clear that he didn't care what people wanted. He TOLD consumers what to like and worked the...
