Tablet sales are dropping like the proverbial stone (because people have seen the Emperor wears no clothes, etc., and the fad has about run its course), so I would hope Microsoft would stay far...

From the Island of Dr. Moreau, this just in:

Ah, the joys of portable, laptop computing...makes the heart grow fonder, it truly does...;) (As well as so thankful I no longer have to putz around with batteries and sleep states!)

@ oroslak

The pertinent question is: "Why not?"...do something the great majority of your desktop customers (who are the great majority of your OS customers) have asked you repeatedly to do...

It's incredibly embarrassing that third-party companies can engineer very decent Start Menus for Win8.1.1, and have been doing so for quite awhile--Start Menus which interfere with nothing at all...

I think this is a great step forward for Microsoft and that it indicates that the people who understand Microsoft's markets are back in charge, finally! Leave the "tablet think" to Apple and...

Saturday, May 24, 2014 - 10:46am

It's gratifying to see that Microsoft is putting what it already should have known into practice: we are not "post PC," and the phrase is such an oxymoron that only someone at Apple might ever...

Yes, it's generally par for the course that Apple proponents will take a far more expensive Mac and compare it to a far less expensive Windows machine and declare it the...

As long as Microsoft can meet demand and stay under Apple pricing, beat Apple's standard factory warranty (very important and very easy to do), and exceed Apple's supported feature list, too--this...

The hybrid is no doubt exactly the right approach. I think Microsoft finally has a winning design, with an actual keyboard and dock, this product could serve as a model for all future laptop...

Tuesday, May 20, 2014 - 2:10pm

Before I read this, I had just read elsewhere that it would have a 12" screen and I was curious as to what might bring this closer to a laptop in terms of feature support. I was skeptical in the...

Tuesday, May 20, 2014 - 1:54pm

Just read an article claiming it's supposed to have a 12" screen, making it slightly larger in screen size than the former 10.6" model, and that the "expanded" screen size is supposed to connote...

@neonspark

If you're saying that Microsoft furnishes the OS that > 90% of all PCs use, including many Bootcamped Macs, I'd agree. But if you're saying that Microsoft actually creates...

@pmbaustin

If the Kinect is all you wanted, why not just pick up one for your PC? There is exactly as much chance of a developer writing meaningful software for that is there is for a...

@oroslak

Guy, you're being ridiculous...;) If I use a term, and I'm careful to say it isn't a slur, then if you still choose to think it is, it becomes your problem, not mine. I'm also...

Tuesday, May 13, 2014 - 12:41pm

There's no way that Microsoft will bifurcate Windows 8...;) There won't be separate development paths for 8 and 8.1...;) Indeed, why should there be? That would be ridiculous.

I'm...

Tuesday, May 13, 2014 - 12:18pm

I think that the folks who cheered the inclusion of the Kinect originally, because they thought it would spur development of xBone Kinect-featured software ("xBone" is an abbreviation, not a slur...

Tuesday, May 13, 2014 - 12:07pm

Nice to see Microsoft stepping up to the level of ubiquitous Blu-Ray players with their own (free) Internet connectivity networks ...;) Better late than never!

Monday, May 12, 2014 - 3:05pm

I think the writing's on the wall for Apple...its market position will continuously weaken and as that happens I'm afraid its civil judicial activities are going to accelerate. The Jobsian...

You just may be onto something here. Yes, it *is* entirely possible that Chromebooks were made for seventy-year-olds. That must explain it!

Two schools of thought will decide this issue.

1) There are people who think that a single OS supporting a select minimum of hardware & a handful or less of quality applications (and...

A bit off topic, but Google is becoming infuriating. My wife forgot her gmail password the other day, and instead of simply sending her a password reset to her email address of record--which...

Using Android would be like reverting to IE 6, at least to me. Ugh...;)

I'd like to know what any of these devices has on my $80 Sony BDP-S5100....? Of course, they don't also do Blu-Ray, either, but we'll let that distinction slide for the moment...;) Streams great...

@euskalzabe

Windows 8 is precisely what happens when Microsoft ignores the "whining" of its customers...;)

Wednesday, April 23, 2014 - 1:09pm

There's a difference between the speed at which a company updates & improves its currently shipping OS, and the speed at which it releases completely new OS versions. Windows8 needs all the...

Well, I just created and saved a document to my desktop with Word Online--which I thought was pretty cool. Office Libre also opened it without a qualm.

The iPad program is just a demo, of...

Yes, the overlap in UI functions is simply a touch accommodation. That's why everything is dumbed down as it is and why so much screen real estate is wasted in Modern,...
