Just to correct the record, the HP Slate is NOT "pen-based", it is a touch device that IN ADDITION provides support for a pen for those times when you want more precision than you'd get with...

"Apple's gross profit margin did slip from 39 percent to 39 percent, but come on: That's [...] not much of a fall."

From 39 to 39 - that REALLY isn't much of a fall.

(I think that's...

Actually, both the stripe and chip are two-factor authentication technologies, at least for debit card use. Both require you to have something (the card) and know something (the PIN).

"shoehorning a full-featured PC OS into a thin and light device just doesn't make sense anyway." You mean like Unix?

"who uses IM?"

Well, the last numbers I saw showed over 300,000,000 IM users on Live Messenger alone in a typical month. 163,000,000,000 minutes per month with a peak of over...

Paul, You really ARE trying to teach math to your readers this quarter, aren't you? ;-)

Thank you, Barbie (oops, I meant Paul)

Ah. Time again for the quarterly class on statistics and percentages and "Mac sales went up by 33% and their share grew by 7% so why do Paul's numbers say their market share only went up by 0.24%?...

"As usual, I'll use these numbers to determine Apple's worldwide PC market share when the company releases its quarterly results next week." And THAT will be the test of the new moderation! :-)

It'll be fascinating to see this blog comment area evolve. Good luck with finding quick ways to deal with the tools and I can't wait to see what a Paul Blog actually looks like for a change!

Well, let's continue to do the math, Paul. You were offline for 2 hours. $49.95 divided by 365 is just under $.14 per day That works out to just under $0.006 per hour You lost 2 of those so that's...

Steven_Layton_SL I'm agreeing with Paul (and usually do) Your comment is fairly amusing given the history of the blog comments section. If you read more, you'll find quite a few posts that refer to "...

Hmm. A computer press "reporter" makes up a ludicrous date and then, when the real date is announced, writes a story about how Microsoft changed the date from the one the "reporter" made up. Why...

The comments here today remind me of something but it took me a while to figure it out. It turns out that's because it was a while ago. About 15 years. On August 24, 1995 Apple drove billboard...
