It's Time for Microsoft to Make the Right CEO Choice Commented on: 45 weeks ago (February 3, 2014)

Gates (and Ballmer) started this whole thing. So the idea that an outsider should be able to come in and cut and cull things is crazy unless Gates and Ballmer were ready to let go, which they are...

We're Finally Living on Internet Time Commented on: 49 weeks ago (January 7, 2014)

Microsoft Sold More Than 3 Million Xbox Ones in 2013 Commented on: 49 weeks ago (January 6, 2014)

Short Takes: November 27, 2013 Commented on: 1 year ago (November 27, 2013)

Microsoft Begins Rolling Out Windows 8.1 Commented on: 1 year ago (October 17, 2013)

My biggest challenge in teaching folks the best way to start out with Win 8 is convincing them to change their email to one that is modern. I have a lot of folks that are still on their Comcast....
