Ballmer's Out. Is Gates Next? Commented on: 4 weeks ago (August 22, 2014)

Paul, did my joking comment about Nadella being a possible Trojan touch a nerve ?

Short Takes: August 22, 2014 Commented on: 4 weeks ago (August 22, 2014)

Steve Ballmer Unexpectedly Steps Down from Microsoft Board Commented on: 4 weeks ago (August 21, 2014)

Microsoft to Launch Surface Mini on May 20 Commented on: 19 weeks ago (May 6, 2014)

Price will be a big part of the success of these devices. Price it right (and since it is an RT device, that means pretty low) and it might do reasonably well. Price it too high and they will be...

Microsoft Blinks, Offers XP Customers Support Contracts on the Cheap Commented on: 22 weeks ago (April 17, 2014)
