Short Takes: December 19, 2014 Commented on: 2 days ago (December 19, 2014)

"'Chrissie pressie' is not a thing."

Apparently it is. I did a quick search for the term, and enough hits came up to show that some people actually say it in both the UK and in Australia...

Reports: North Korea Identified as Source of Sony Hack Commented on: 3 days ago (December 18, 2014)

Similar story here. I highly doubt I would have enjoyed the movie, but I was planning to buy a ticket just to show support for Sony's right to make and release it.

Apple Wins iPod/iTunes Antitrust Case Commented on: 5 days ago (December 16, 2014)

While it's entirely possible they didn't break any anti-trust laws (I'm no lawyer), there is no question that they harmed consumers. Barriers created to keep consumers locked into the Apple...

Windows 8 Makes Small Gains with Microsoft Poised to Announce Its Replacement Commented on: 14 weeks ago (September 9, 2014)

As I've said before, I think the biggest problem with Windows 8 is identity/account management. I shouldn't have to be logged into the same account for every app. Windows 8.1 is WORSE than...

Talk is Cheap, So Microsoft Starts to Implement Its Dual-Use Vision Commented on: 15 weeks ago (September 3, 2014)

One thing Microsoft seriously needs to change is their inflexible identity management paradigm. In Windows 8.x they encourage you (and in Windows Phone they force you) to log in with a Microsoft...

US Accuses T-Mobile of Secretly Overcharging Customers Commented on: 24 weeks ago (July 3, 2014)

T-Mobile isn't the main bad guy in this. By FAR the largest blame lies with the 3rd parties whose whole business model is to trick people into signing up for something they'll get charged for...

Microsoft Challenges U.S. Effort to Obtain Customer Data Stored Outside of Country Commented on: 27 weeks ago (June 11, 2014)
