Short Takes: Special Microsoft Earnings Edition, July 19, 2013 Commented on: 1 year ago (July 19, 2013)

Only pointless if you're tied to legacy, but you know this, so let's call a spade a spade ... this is now just trolling, but hey, screw the concept of Microsoft tablets, let's just carry on trash...

Google, EU Regulators Reportedly Reach Antitrust Settlement Deal Commented on: 1 year ago (April 16, 2013)

RIM Changes Its Name to BlackBerry, Announces New Handsets Commented on: 1 year ago (January 31, 2013) Allot of the announcement seemed to be of the 'continuity but also change' ilk. Very heavily pushing the message that they've kept the stuff you 'know and love' - but also added...

For Windows 8, a Familiar Launch Story Commented on: 2 years ago (November 19, 2012) It seems increasingly clear that you simply have a rather biased negative view on ARM. Describing the hardware as 'woefully inadequate' is simply not true at all, and having a few off the...
Anyone buying now knows the difference with Windows RT Commented on: 2 years ago (October 19, 2012) Hear hear! The difference isn't even that complicated. Windows RT gives you a 'pure tablet' experience where Metro is king, but you get just enough 'Windows' in there to make it...
Microsoft Tells EU that Windows 8 Will Comply with Antitrust Requirements Commented on: 2 years ago (September 10, 2012) My concern is that the EU will force Microsoft to allow desktop browsers, potentially opening the floodgates for other desktop software.
