Microsoft pulled the ads that they originally posted. Apparently they realized they were in poor taste, and I agree. The videos available now are reposted by others.

Sorry, Paul, you don't get off that easy. From your Windows 8 : Verdict review:

"Today, we stand at a dividing line in history, the line between the traditional PC past and the touch-based...

Engadget mentioned the same display issue you did, and they came to the same conclusion that 125% was the best, though unhappy, compromise.

I was basing the iPad being heavy from your previous reviews of it where you say it is heavy. Now, compared to the Surface Pro or Ultrabooks, it isn't. The Surface Pro is very portable when...

What I find interesting (amusing?) is that you point out a lot of the same issues other sites found (screen issues, battery life, device size and weight) and then draw the opposite conclusion the...

Wifi storage devices are more flexible and allow multiple users to share the drive. Kingston has one. Printing is done over wifi as well. Speakers are handled by AirPlay and that thing called an...

It doesn't matter how fast it boots Windows. They aren't including all the corporate add-on software and network drive connections after you log in. That will add about 3 minutes to the...

If they should sell anything, it should be the Windows Phone stuff. It has declined in share and looks to only be getting worse, not better. If Nokia is their only last hope, then they don't...

Given the leaks about deals with music publishers, I think they decided it was better to confirm early than be silent for another week. Now that they've confirmed the service the speculation for the...

Since they are just adding iPhone and iPod Touch support to the existing apps, that's why they have the same price. It may help drive some more iPad sales to move up to the bigger screen. Those...

Good ideas here. Expanding on the branding thing, I would recommend dropping Windows from the phone. It doesn't run Windows, so don't name it that. MS Phone or Zune Phone or something else is better...

Note that you must not be in compatibility view mode for it to work in IE 9. Seems pretty slow in IE 9, though.

The music license isn't really Apple's language. That's the music industry legalese. We can never actually own music we purchase.

We'll really only know when the phone is out in the wild and people use it. The call quality testing done so far yields promising results. Pogue did go further than Mossberg and travel to SF and...

Not counting other tablet sales doesn't really change anything. There isn't any significant maker of tablets anywhere close to Apple's iPad sales. The Galaxy Tab is the only one remotely close. So...

MS is definitely no longer a growth company. When was the last time MS introduced a product that swept the market? Everything they have now is just a rehash of what they've already had for years....

iPod Nano - They're changing the market for this device. It is now a "premium" shuffle. I think they should have reduced the price at the same time, though. $119 and $149 would have been better...

I think most of this wasn't very exciting, either. However, I was surprised to see that that iPod Touch has outsold both the DS and PSP combined. That's pretty impressive and says a lot for the new...

VLC will view it, but it doesn't work right for live streams. It will show a fully recorded video using the same technology, though.
Wednesday, September 1, 2010 - 5:53am
Or maybe it is because the technology they're using hasn't been implemented on Windows. If you can find an HTTP live streaming implementation for Windows, then you can use it to watch the event. It...

You've already said this about slates, Paul.  Consumers don't want Windows tablets.  They've been out there for years, but they aren't buying them.  I read that the Windows tablets (all...

MS should stop selling 32 bit versions of their OS.  It is past time that we all go to 64 bit.  Apple's done it already with Snow Leopard (the 32 bit kernel can run 64 bit applications, something...

They coded it to be known working in Safari.  They probably didn't want to spend the time to do multibowser support.  This sounds a lot like IE only websites.  Shame for not doing that, but it isn...

I took a look, and between my wife and I we use less than 200MB combined!  So we'll both be dropping to the 200MB plans and saving $30 a month.  About once a year we might exceed it when we travel...

So.... how does a developer write apps for Windows Embedded Compact 7 when it runs on an ARM?  It doesn't sound like standard Windows 7 applications will work.  Where do you buy them from (...

Remember, Apple dropped "Computer" from the company name a few years ago.  They're not just a computer company anymore.  Mac sales are only a portion of their profit.  This is unlike Dell where...

Apple has never been about bleeding edge hardware, except for the processors on the Mac Pro line.  (Yes, they're not bleeding edge right now, but they usually are the first ones to run the latest...

What is the difference between junk mail and spam? To me, anything I don't want that is advertising related is spam.

iPad is not a PC.  No one at Apple has claimed it was.

Also note that Intel has said they are definitely planning to participate in a tablet market that competes with the iPad.  If it were...

It's an Apple TV competitor.  Apple TV doesn't sell a lot.  I don't expect this to sell much, either.
