When I heard on the news that one million had been sold, I immediately thought, "Wow, that's a lot." Killzone looks very cool to me, and I'm actually becoming more and more tempted to buy one of...

Yes Paul! I read Masters of Doom (on Kindle) as well. Great book.

I'm going to be living vicariously through other people for a little while as I watch the launch unfold and people discuss/debate it and upload game footage, etc. I wouldn't mind getting an Xbox...

I have GOT to get this console for our house. My mom and dad have trouble juggling the numerous remotes we have. Wouldn't this be the perfect excuse -- that is, because of the voice control --...

I've played my share of first-person shooters, including previous installments in the CoD and Battlefield series, and I will eventually pick up Ghosts as well as BF4. Looking forward to it. But...

There's that phenomenon of people taking things personally again. ;-)

Doesn't bother me if ordinary people or average users want to use alternative office suites that are "stripped-down" and have 10% of the total functionality of full Microsoft Office. That may *...

Probably the most complex application I use with Windows 8.1 is Cakewalk SONAR X3. I'm still trying to imagine what a "Metro" or "Modern" equivalent of that software would be like. But lots of...

I'm glad you cleared that up. I was wondering the same thing but thought it would be a silly question to ask. :-)

I kind of feel like I dodged a bullet. My 8.1 upgrade on my Surface RT went fine, and so far I haven't had any problems.

I also had the problem with the watermark on my main desktop machine with an ASUS motherboard, but fixed it by updating my BIOS.

Try using the "Metro" or modern version of IE. I don't think desktop browsers like Chrome or Firefox are going to support it. I just now tried this for the first time on my laptop, and it worked...

Yes, I remember having not a horrible experience with Vista, but I've been told that's because I was running it on hardware with respectable specs. Never ran Me though -- went straight from...

Loved the interview. Paul, back then I wanted an Apple //gs as well, but it was pretty much a pipe dream because of the cost. Ended up getting an IBM PC/XT turbo compatible instead, which marked...

I'm happy for you, Paul. I consider you my foremost authority on Windows and technology in general, and your site is easily one of my favorite destinations on the Internet. It's great to have...

Thursday, September 26, 2013 - 4:35pm

Well, sure. The original surface RT isn't/wasn't perfect, and neither will the 2, or 3, or Win 8.1, 8.2, 9.0, etc. All this stuff is going to continue to evolve and get better over time, and we'...

Thursday, September 26, 2013 - 2:56pm

It's hard to say. Microsoft is probably guilty of copying things sometimes, it would probably be silly to deny that. But then again, what about the Surface? It's really a new type of thing that...

Looks like a cool entry-level phone! My mom and dad (who are in their 70s) are finally considering getting their first phone, and I recommended this one to them. I hope they get it. (Well, I...

Tuesday, September 17, 2013 - 6:57pm

I feel like I'm using such a hybrid approach at the moment. I have a bunch of CDs (not as many as some people, but my fair share), and I've ripped 90% of them to my Zune HD, using the Zune...

Tuesday, September 17, 2013 - 4:56pm

I just use a TracFone, but it's stuff like this that makes me wonder: Maybe the market for smartphones is saturated already. I know, I know, that was quick, wasn't it? But sometimes I don't know...

Tuesday, September 17, 2013 - 3:03pm

I've used the free alternatives to Microsoft Office on occasion when I had to boot into Linux because my printer wasn't working at the moment in Windows, and in my opinion they're perfectly...

Monday, September 16, 2013 - 3:24pm

For some people, I could see how these types of devices could be a perfect fit, but I can't picture myself running Cakewalk SONAR X2 or FL Studio on a Chromebook, like I do on my Lenovo Windows 8...

Thursday, August 29, 2013 - 3:19pm

I used to love Microsoft's "natural" or "ergonomic" style keyboards and mice ... I've owned a few of them. But a couple years ago I for the first time bought a gaming keyboard and mouse, a...

Wednesday, August 28, 2013 - 4:32pm

Man. Still debating between this and a Roku. I think I'm leaning toward the Roku, as I think it would serve my family's needs better. But this just seems so tempting because of its price and...

Thursday, August 22, 2013 - 4:28pm

Cute ... I basically like it, but I can already hear some of the reactions: "That doesn't actually happen in real life..."

Wednesday, August 21, 2013 - 11:32pm

Just wanted to mention one thing about the Windows 8 part of the conversation ... I still feel like part of the lunatic fringe for not having too much of a problem adopting it in the first place...

Monday, August 19, 2013 - 3:39pm

That's what I would like to know as well. I admit I am somewhat tempted to try these utilities, but there's also a part of me that doesn't mind using "modern" apps in full-screen mode as intended...

Monday, August 19, 2013 - 2:57pm

Okay, I have a Zune HD, and from what I can gather here, I'll still be able to use the Zune desktop software to sync music that I buy from other sources and rip from CDs. I've never actually...

Thursday, August 15, 2013 - 9:06pm

Good point.

Wednesday, August 14, 2013 - 7:37pm

I'm a little confused. If it makes sense to have Kinect bundled in a mandatory way so that developers know everyone has it and are encouraged to take advantage of it, isn't allowing the user to...
