This is a rather interesting comment and I think it's somewhat telling. You say that your friends didn't 'get' the tiles. Yet what's the difference between a tile and an icon? Both are square,...

Wow, that's exactly the reason I switched FROM comcast TO FIOS! Of course, a month after I did that, Comcast came out with their xfinity service and dropped all their prices.

It's really not as simple as that. The whole purpose of advertising is to create a feeling and/or perception in the mind of the viewer and to do it quickly, many times even on a subconscious...

Well, first of all, while I think you're addressing all similar comments as a group, I feel that I should point out that I'm not defending Google at all. I hate the fact that they mine our...

True, but a Chromebook is not a tablet. There's a different expectation there.

Friday, December 6, 2013 - 5:44pm

Hi Paul,
I usually tend to agree with most of your opinions, but I really disagree about the whole Scroogled campaign. I do agree that what Microsoft is saying about Google is correct. I...

I hope they improve this app. SkyDrive is such a powerful tool and they could do so much more with it.

You mention that the app appears rushed. Sadly, that seems to be the case with a lot...

Not to steal Paul's thunder, but I believe I can take a stab at a few reasons. I don't have any inside information, so I don't know this for certain, but if I were to hazard a guess, I'd say:...

Hi Paul,
I would like to make two comments here. The first is about design: While the edges of the 2520 are rounded front to back, I think it's important to note that the corners are...

First of all, I don't think that's very likely. Xbox is Microsoft's gateway to the consumer market. It's the one product they have that is actually popular with consumers. They're not going to...

Well, it's definitely not the version of Windows that desktop users want. But I would think that the number of people flocking to tablets with touch interfaces suggests that it may actually be...

That's an interesting question. I know it works for the Surface Pro, because I have one. Haven't tried it with my Surface RT (and obviously not with a Surface 2 yet either.)

Wednesday, October 30, 2013 - 9:40am

But I'm not bitter! LOL

Well, I don't have a crystal ball any more than you do, but I would say that nothing would 'stop' them. They will buy the version that suits their needs - and their wallet. If they don't need...

These 'software types' probably won't make that switch soon. Development, for the time being, largely needs to be done in the desktop. That may change, but for the moment, it's true. However,...

Thank you, Paul, for validating my own personal experience. I originally didn't want [the device formerly known as Surface RT] - opting instead for the Pro, but I was able to pick one up at...

Because living in Australia is bad? j/k ;) Although, I would imagine that bing isn't the only application/platform/etc. with a USA bias. We Americans tend to be pretty self-centered.

Monday, September 16, 2013 - 6:36pm

I think your statement is an over-generalization. I didn't find the ad funny and I'm not humorless or sensitive about the subject matter. In fact, I think it's quite correct. I even posted some...

Monday, September 16, 2013 - 10:10am

I really didn't think this add was especially funny. True, but not really funny. But I was curious... Have you seen these parody ads? I thought they were hilarious.


Sunday, September 15, 2013 - 8:56pm

And Microsoft pulled it already. I have to admit, I reply didn't think it was funny. True, but kind of unfunny. And I'm not even an Apple fan.

Thursday, June 20, 2013 - 11:57am

I don't understand why everyone is so upset about Microsoft's reversal here. Clearly the market isn't ready for this change yet. However, Microsoft still has the infrastructure to do it. With...

Thursday, June 20, 2013 - 11:43am

Exactly. The market will et there on its own. Microsoft was trying to force the issue, which it really cannot afford to do right now.

Thursday, June 20, 2013 - 11:35am

Those "stupid" fans are the ones that buy the consoles. The market isn't ready for the changes that MS wanted to make.

Monday, June 17, 2013 - 11:01pm

What you're saying makes sense for SOME of the market - but not all. I personally prefer digital and I absolutely believe that Xbox One should support it, but it shouldn't force it.


Monday, June 17, 2013 - 5:40pm

I think Microsoft is not considering all of their user base. So much of the focus here is hard-core gamers who, assuming they are old enough to have a job, are more likely than most to tolerate...
