Possibly the difference in the stock prices is MS isn't really growing in market share with their products.  They either already own the market (Windows, Office), or they barely make a dent (Zune...

It shows in the stock price, too.  Apple has a great quarter and the stock is on a roll.  MS also has a great quarter, and their stock is "meh".  There is some dispute over MS really having a "...

Ocean makes a good point, though. Windows sales is not the same as new PC sales. The true rate comparison is PC sales vs. Mac sales. Which one had a greater rate of increase?

MS may be making some poor decisions regarding privacy with Windows Live. Read the top story here about it....

Macs are mostly consumer purchases while PCs have both consumer and businesses buying them. Mac business use is probably insignificant here. So I wonder if that means the overall PC market is...

I find it more interesting that Lenovo doesn't show up in the US top 5 at all, but it is in the global top 5. Lenovo ranks higher than Toshiba in the global chart, too. I thought it would be more...

I could see getting one of these for my teens (only one so far, but 2 more will be there soon enough...). I don't want to pay the full price for an iPhone or some other smart phone, as well as the...

iAds isn't anything more than Apple getting a slice of the ad revenue that apps are already using with AdMob. They're actually making it a better experience for the user than the existing ad...

I will suggest that a lot of people that want this kind of phone don't really care if Windows Phone 7 is coming out at the end of the year. They get this phone because it does what they need right...

All 3 people that own the Zune HD will be upset, I'm sure.

Meanwhile, many companies still can't get off IE 6.

I noticed something. If 25% of WoW players are on Macs, then that is a greater percentage of Mac players than there are of total Mac users compared to PC users. So it seems the percentage of Mac...

What upset me most about Shadowrun was how bad a game it was. The Shadowrun setting deserves a better game. It would actually work well as an MMO setting, but we'll probably never see it now...

The 6.x line will be abandoned, and I expect pretty quickly. It may not be by Microsoft immediately, but if you're a developer do you target the Windows Mobile 7 platform where the growth is or the...

Of course I'm not using one of those. I'm using XP with SP3! I'm hoping when I get a new work system that they'll actually be able to send me Windows 7. If not, then I'll probably be stuck on XP...

Which browser is the "hopey changey" one? I want to vote for that one.

Not enough was said yet to really know how this will play out. Nothing was said about multitasking, though the hub focus seems to indicate you're going to be moving back and forth between them. Can...

A 24" LCD monitor is not suited to reading books at all. You can't hold it in your lap and get comfortable with it like you can a Kindle or an iPad. Also, the iPad is an IPS LCD. That's hardly a...

@G5Man I applaud him because he admitted the device may be useful for him after all. It isn't wrong to change your mind about something.

I applaud Paul for admitting the iPad is a device he wants and will use. I would like to know why the iPad will do what he wants better than the PC tablets he frequently mentions. As for the...

@Waethorn I do know how applications work, since I code for a living. I do know the OS handles the input and hands it off to the application. My problem is when the OS gets in the way when...

"I favour Microsoft's method, whereby the application doesn't have to be tablet-aware at all" I think that's the wrong approach. If you want an application to work well with a tablet, it must be...

@Waethorn "Since OS X.x upgrades are minor, what could you say about going from 9 to X, since that is the last real major upgrade?" I'm not sure I'd call the upgrades minor. True, they are more...

@Waethorn "Considering that there are more users on XP than there were on a previous version of OS X, which was easier for your friend to learn? Upgrading to Windows 7, or switching to a Mac?" He...

@Waethorn Moving from Vista to Win 7 is most certainly a less jarring upgrade for your typical user. However, the vast majority of Windows users are going to be going from XP to Win 7 since Vista...

I disagree that Windows 7 is "intuitive" or "easy to use", too. I have a friend who was just given a Windows 7 laptop to upgrade his old XP system at work. His comments trying to move stuff from...

I would like to see the person that can press 26 keys at once. Leaning or sitting on the keyboard doesn't count, either.

"thanks to the new Apple commercial model, the NYT will soon go paid only." This is not Apple's doing. The NYT has to do this to continue to exist. I expect nearly all print media currently free...

What will really be telling is if the iPad outsells Windows tablet computers. To date that format has not sold well to consumers. We'll just have to wait and see if the iPad does sell well.

I'd really be worried about using the service if the local video and music were not available during the downtime.
