I say things like this to friends all the time. They have no net worth. They spend a little more than they earn. If they lost their jobs they'd be homeless as soon as their credit cards run out...

I'm sorry but you left a few things out of the compare and contrast you just did. You failed to mention the laptop and the headphones that went along with that Lumia.

The point isn't to...

I very much liked the add, though I just bought the 928 on Verizon for $599. Still, I think for a lot of folks that ad will make a lot of sense. A modern computer, modern smart phone, premium...

I do remember AREXX. That is an example of great thinking at that time in computing. I'd like to see that kind of great thinking adapted to our modern UI computing. Right now we have a lot of...

Likely because of past lessons learned which basically means that unless everyone has it and uses it, developers are not likely to embrace it. Now that it is out there it may be possible to allow...

I had to go find some images of Directory Opus, never having heard of it. I like what I see as a Windows app. Kind of like File Manager for Windows 3.1x. DiskMaster on the Amiga I think has a more...

I bought both the Surface RT and the Pro on their respective launch dates in San Francisco. I also have a Dell 13" Ultrabook that has Windows 8 on it.

For personal email, I use Outlook.com...

I read what you write and to some degree I agree. However, most of what Google is offering is the kind of fluff that doesn't help me much. At the end of the day my reality is I have emails from...

Samsung has largely taken over Android. No one else is making money on Android except for Samsung as a hardware maker and Microsoft as a license collector. Samsung could decide they want to...

It's good to see Microsoft making swift progress on their modern UI. It's a winning formula and I hope they never let up.

I bought a Surface Pro at the San Francisco Microsoft store. I showed up just 2 or 3 minutes after the opening and had to wait an hour. When I left the line was even longer than what I started in...

Now you're talking. There is a lot of value there.

@Jeffrey,

Exactly the problem situation I raised yesterday. The PC industry has fallen into a bad cycle of manufacturing absolute garbage. Virtually all of the vendors have no problem with...

Google is doing nothing but losing money on Android. They have not only made zero dollars on the effort they have lost $12 billion on buying Motorola which has not added any net positive effect to...

I could not disagree more, Paul. I know an entire group of people dying to buy hybrids or Surface Pro. They are simply not out there as you claim they are. I was in Costco yesterday, not to buy a...

Nick, I can tell you first hand as someone with a Lumia 920 I specifically look for Win8 support. I have to disagree that Win8 phones run Win7 apps just fine. I see battery drain and all manner of...

I recently switched from a Galaxy S3 to the Lumia 920 and I switched from Google GMail and calendar, etc. to Outlook.com as a result. This won't affect me at all. Personally, I think Google is...

Google is insane. And so are the naysayers. The common UI and eco system brought forth by Office, SkyDrive and Office 365 are all going to tilt things in the Windows direction.

What has...

Think of the console wars. Sega and Nintendo. Sega is all but gone, taken down by Sony, which isn't as great as it once was. No one gave Microsoft a chance and yet they are on top in the console...

Too funny.

I was someone watching Metro from the sidelines and didn't like it at all. I had a Galaxy Nexus 10.1 tablet and Galaxy S3 Smartphone. I went to the Microsoft Kiosk to check out the tablet and...

Sunday, November 18, 2012 - 9:49pm

It is a good review. I already bought the 920, but I do like the look of the 820. I got used to the weight in all of 10 seconds and never gave it another thought. Besides, if I ever want to beat a...

Saturday, November 10, 2012 - 3:35pm

Microsoft could put Windows tiles in halo such that when you want to do anything like read a computer screen or open a door it looks like Metro. Get people used to seeing the interface like they...
