Yes, but if history is any judge, by the time they do that, Apple will have leapfrogged them yet again with something else.

I travel with a very similar setup as your Rick Steves. My twist is that I put my laptop and all of my electronics in a business bag specifically for that purpose (Skooba V.2 Satchel) which just...

When oh when is MS going to do something about the horrid Skype IM feature? Just make it more like Lync. In fact, make the whole thing more like Lync.

Perhaps the silver lining for MS will be when the students graduate and enter the work force (big if these days) and must be productive, they will appreciate the benefits MS offers.

That's exactly what I was thinking. I was in a MS Store a few weeks back and they didn't have one. The salesperson was knowledgeable in general, but she didn't know about the Y2P. Maybe if enough...

Leo always seems distracted and uninterested in the shows.

I could have written this myself exactly. While others are o0ing and ahhing about the new improvements, I'm scoffing at how they had a nearly perfect platform with Zune and then screwed it up big...

Monday, April 21, 2014 - 13:38

I agree completely. What is needed is a "universal Zune" platform. Analogously, MS had an awesome race winning race car built by professionals then scraped it and had had a handful of high school...

Excellent idea I think. From your fingers to Microsoft's ears!

Thursday, April 3, 2014 - 20:38

But how many people really end up buying all three vs the numbers of people who would buy because it is universal and might not otherwise.

Why doesn't MS have you as a consultant Paul? It seems to me that they would well benefit from your advice before and not after the fact.

You are in the unique position of having the...

Thursday, April 3, 2014 - 09:34

Agreed. Black is boring and even more slab-like. White is to iPhone looking. Bright orange and green are just too much and would get old quickly. Why discontinue the cyan, yellow and red that most...

So do we assume that you will be starting your "W9 Field Guide" later this year for the W9 debut next April? How much of W8 FG do you think will carry over?

Newegg has it for $280.

So would this work as an Xbox Live Gold account if connected to Xbox to access free media that MS charges for?

Thursday, February 27, 2014 - 11:11

@Paul. I've been meaning to ask you this and this seems like a good opportunity. All things considered, if you had to make a choice between iOS and Android now and moving forward, which would you...

Friday, February 21, 2014 - 13:23

Their message and PR problem isn't limited to XboxOne by any means. I'm always amazed that with all of their money and resources, MS has these kind of problems. They can easily employ the very...

My thoughts and sentiments exactly.

Monday, February 17, 2014 - 20:48

Timing is everything. MS came too late for the internet, search engines, browsers, mp3 players, smartphones, and tablets. Google was a joke at first and now they are laughing and MS is crying. MS...

Monday, February 10, 2014 - 10:43

I'm a big fan of yours Paul and have been for some time. I'm reading a lot more of "I was for it before I was against it" from your posts...W8, HTC vs. Lumia, Ballmer, etc. No criticism here. Just...

Satya's name is pronounced Sat-ya (short "a"). There is no "h" in it.

Wasn't someone able to hear how much louder Justine's mic was? I had to keep turning it down every time he spoke.

Tuesday, February 4, 2014 - 11:50

Mary Jo - I 'luv 'ya dearly girl, but there is no "b" in supposedly and I cringe every time you say it.

Monday, January 27, 2014 - 19:03

Mod as in modified or mod like groovy?

Sunday, January 26, 2014 - 11:21

I wish it were the other way around where we were able to get Google apps on WP8.

Saturday, January 25, 2014 - 11:42

I like the updates but I don't like the trouble they cause with many of my third party programs. I guess some of the developers just aren't seeing a pressing need to update their programs for W8...

Friday, January 24, 2014 - 18:35

Maybe Andrew should send him that Lightpack and Paul can attach it behind his head before each show.

Monday, January 20, 2014 - 13:00

Why do you want to omit your name? It has a lot of cache....like Nokia or Lumia so why not take advantage of it? I think "Paul Thurott's Guide to Windows 8.1" would be best but if not, perhaps, "...

Monday, January 20, 2014 - 11:34

A still unanswered obvious question that many of us still wonder about. You'd think they would have done this at the very least as a stop-gap measure until they had all of this figured out which...

Thursday, January 16, 2014 - 12:24

You want MS to fail? You do realize that the more competition the better for consumers right? Right?
