Paul has connections and gets the good stuff.

Monday, July 21, 2014 - 16:18

You won't need Paul to notify you. When you look up and see a pig flying you'll know MS finally fixed it.

Salacious? "Full Definition of SALACIOUS 1 : arousing or appealing to sexual desire or imagination : lascivious 2 : lecherous, lustful".

MS was the epitome of "smug arrogance" for years before it was humbled by its own smug arrogance.

What does MS have a monopoly over? In most regards, they have fallen way behind Google and Apple. Fat lot of good that "monopoly" is doing them!

Why does MS have such trouble with branding and marketing? With the amount of money they have, they could retain all of the world's largest ad agencies. WTF, do they keep this in-house?

Monday, June 9, 2014 - 10:41

MS should pay you two nicely for your efforts and should publish it themselves. Win win.

Indeed and I'm afraid that is the only way WMC will ever develop or keep from being dropped altogether. Other companies are making WMC type programs so obviously there is a market. The basic WMC...

I read somewhere today that this continuity will be available in W9 next April only far better and I believe it.

Who uses a wet cloth to clean the screen? Use a light misting spray bottle or spray on a microfiber cloth if you even need to. If (and that is a big if) those tiny little speaker grills get...

Why wait until SP4? SP needs all the help it can get at this point because it's running from behind. This would be a relatively simple and inexpensive + for SP. And while one is choosing the...

"Nifty pen holder"? It may work but I think it looks awful. The SP3 looks like an expensive vase with a handle cemented onto it. And what about those who won't use the pen? They either have to...

"But I'm told we might also see another surprise at the event."

May that surprise be mighty hero Surface Phone!

Great. I just bought a Roku 3 a few days ago because I'd given up waiting for MS to do this.

Monday, May 12, 2014 - 20:04

Yes. But now it will be even more perfect because it' iPhone and even though it isn't the first with a large screen, it will still the most perfect perfect because it's and iPhone.

Monday, May 12, 2014 - 19:31

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.

Tuesday, May 6, 2014 - 19:23

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.

Monday, May 5, 2014 - 10:10

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.

Sunday, April 27, 2014 - 09:28

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...

Thursday, April 3, 2014 - 20:42

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.

Thursday, April 3, 2014 - 10:03

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?

Wednesday, March 12, 2014 - 09:48

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?
