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...

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...

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...

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...

Monday, November 18, 2013 - 1:14pm

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 - 2:44pm

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 - 9:45am

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

Thursday, October 24, 2013 - 8:38am

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 - 2:07pm

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 - 2:00pm

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.
