Can't wait - not only will people be talking on their cell phones incessantly but now they will be talking to their phones, laptops, etc. incessantly. Don't get me wrong, I see the advantages it'...

Thanks for sharing your list of apps. You put me onto a couple that look interesting (Photosynth). Care to share why you feel the need for Google Search - access to their apps possibly?

I agree, Microsoft made a commitment and has not fulfilled same.

The bad news is almost all tech companies fail to support earlier adopters - Microsoft, Apple, Amazon and Google included...

I totally agree.

It's not the current ads found in several Metro apps- they are few and relatively unobtrusive. Like you, I'm more concerned about the future. Ditto for the Xbox where...

Many tech writers seem to think learning a new interface - in this case Windows 8 Metro - is not a normal expectation. Would an ordinary user of OSX be immediately effective when using IOS for the...

Obviously Metro was primarily designed by Microsoft for a touch screen interface. Once a new user understands a few basic concepts, it is quite intuitive and easy to use. The FUD tech writers seem...
