Oh, that still makes you a dinosaur. But, hey, the dinosaurs were successful for 135 million years. ;)

Can I get an "Amen?!"

Did I miss a memo? Are they going to allow 'legacy desktop apps' into the store? I'd be quite surprised by this.

Short of that, I really don't see this as a defeat but as a course...

You know, I hear what you're saying, but it appears to me that you're judging the 'new Microsoft' by the mistakes of the old.

Microsoft has made a lot of mistakes to be sure, but the point...

Hi Paul,
I understand what you're saying, but I'm not overly concerned with how folks are framing this. As Mr. Nadella is fond of saying - this is a mobile-first, cloud-first world....

You do realize don't you that this was just a guess on Paul's part? Microsoft hasn't even admitted that this exists let alone talked about how they would monetize it.

You know, I still don't think you need two operating systems. Simply allowing the user to configure which UI they want to use, Metro, desktop or both in any given situation would solve the...

While I agree with your comments about the OS being frustratingly incomplete, I feel compelled to point out that you can have multiple windows open on Windows 8 across multiple monitors - and I...

I agree. The Surface (not pro) needs a pen. If Samsung can put one on a Galaxy Note, Microsoft can add one to a Surface.

It's not something that I'd use all the time, but there are times...

Tuesday, February 11, 2014 - 23:23

Wow, what exactly are you arguing here? Are you upset about Paul's arguments or his grammar?

The first one is completely a matter of you misreading the line. He's obviously referring to a...

Tuesday, February 11, 2014 - 23:11

I agree with what you're saying, but I would change it from 'input modes' to use cases. I typically tend to be using my device in one way or another at any given time. If I have my Surface...

You know, the comment about Win 8 being two different OS's is very interesting. I've heard that same comment so many times, but even though I know where it's coming from, I've always found it odd...

Ah... Hell hath no fury like an OEM scorned.

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...

Sunday, December 8, 2013 - 18:22

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 - 17:44

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...

Sunday, November 24, 2013 - 18:07

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:...

Sunday, November 24, 2013 - 17:47

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...

Monday, November 18, 2013 - 13:14

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...

Thursday, October 31, 2013 - 14:44

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...

Wednesday, October 30, 2013 - 09:45

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 - 09:40

But I'm not bitter! LOL

Thursday, October 24, 2013 - 08:38

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...

Wednesday, October 23, 2013 - 14:07

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,...

Wednesday, October 23, 2013 - 14:00

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...
