The Motorola Atrix was the first to have a fingerprint reader.

I'd love to see this on AT&T as well. I actually like the orange color a lot.

Paul, I'm pretty sure you mean "righting the wrongs" in the first paragraph.

The new keyboard doesn't bother me. Neither does the function key row. Given the deprecation of the function keys, that is not much of an issue these days but for a small part of the computing...

The 52x I scored at the bargain basement price of 39.99 came in blister packaging, since it is sold as a GoPhone.

I've been anxiously awaiting the new X1 Carbon for some time now. The previous version suffered from not only low resolution, but also a poor quality screen. This new one seems to solve that...

It was out of stock on Amazon, but I placed the order anyway. I thought for sure they would do a wave of cancellations, but mine shipped on Sunday and will arrive by Tuesday.

I was just about to forward this deal to you. Did it as an impulse buy. Totally amazing price. It's out of stock from Amazon, and other sellers that sell it for more will bubble to the top....

FWIW, the state of their Appstore on the Kindle and on Android is horrid too. So many times they will not have an app update for days/weeks/months, even with big name titles. Even the Facebook...

This is very true, and becomes a competitive advantage for the Kindle Fire. It's the main reason that I'm sticking with it after getting it at a cheap price. I could have gone with the Venue Pro...

Tuesday, December 10, 2013 - 9:57am

Very true. Especially with it tied in so closely with Windows 8.

And as a perfect example of being on the forefront of something and not really following through, this was one of the...

You are missing an "is" in the byline.

Any word on price?

Monday, December 2, 2013 - 10:17am

To sweeten the deal even further, the Kindle Fire 7" HDX is on sale today for $179, making the price differential even more extreme.

In days long ago (at least long ago in tech terms), it...

Can you remap that button to anything else? One of the things I've gotten so used to on my mouse is the button on the left that acts as the back key in the browser, and to a lesser extend the one...

It kind of counters the age old problem of apps spewing icons on the desktop as far as the eye can see. Like I really need Adobe Reader on my desktop. I feel this behavior is quite consistent...

Paul, you forgot iOS 7 itself. They stole the flat design language of "Metro" as well. But it still doesn't have the live tile goodness that makes it so special. It's basically the same exact...

OH, I'd love to hear that story! Mark is the man.

Friday, September 6, 2013 - 9:05am

I agree that Windows Phone should be free, and it's an odd choice when you are trying to grow the platform to make it less attractive. I don't think that MS would ever make Windows free, neither...

A ThinkPad Helix fills that bill, at very high cost.

Tuesday, July 16, 2013 - 1:28pm

I've experienced the same. An adequate crossover device for us has been the ThinkPad Twist. Pretty inexpensive given the capabilities. A convertible touchscreen with average battery life, but...

A lot of discontent out in the tech field about this. I wonder if an Xbox ONE type reversal is coming for this as well.

Thursday, June 20, 2013 - 8:54am

Disappointing news. MS was trying to shift the paradigm. Now we are stuck back in the old days.

Wednesday, June 12, 2013 - 11:57am

Microsoft has their work cut out for them in regards to marketing, something that has never been a strong suit for them. In the end, the ONE is the more forward thinking console and really...

Friday, June 7, 2013 - 2:36pm

An Xbox LIVE account is a Microsoft Account, so if you already have a 360 console, I see no problems.

And people, please wait until E3 before we talk about how the One is somehow not...

Monday, June 3, 2013 - 5:56pm

I was excited about the Helix, but then I saw the price, and my excitement drained quite quickly. Now I think I'll get a X1 Carbon, and with the announcement of something like this Acer and...

While the design is kind of odd, I think it works well in regards to what they want to do. Kind of an understated elegance to it. On the one hand, they didn't want it to look like every other...

Tuesday, May 28, 2013 - 5:53pm

Not so sure I agree with the comparison. Sure, I see some parallels, and MS has always been confused as to what they want to be as a company and what they want their products to be. I don't...

Thursday, May 23, 2013 - 2:39pm

It's about time MS! I've been supporting some Windows 8 users, and have needed a quick guide to help them out. I had to take a guide from a training partner that they gave out at a launch event...

Tuesday, May 7, 2013 - 1:28pm

This is pretty big about face for them, admitting mistakes. Of course it will be the execution that will matter, something that MS has fumbled before.

With pricing, I surely hope that it...

Wednesday, May 1, 2013 - 2:06pm

I had the same experience. I was curious as a potential switcher to WP. But, I'm obviously concerned about my apps. When it showed me I think the the same 94% match, I thought, OK, let's see...
