How to recognise which system files are compressed, whether compression is used at all and, before buying a computer, if the manufacturer enables Windows 10 compression? Which RAM sizes and which...

If indeed they want to become the leader in security, then this must include the following:

1) Respect the rights of the endconsumers according to law.

2) Make firmwares and drivers...

Hopefully, soon ISOs and their checksums are available directly from Microsoft also for Windows 8.1 and 10.

To answer my own question about glare / matt: Judging from a video on...

The preferred display ratio depends on one's preferred display orientation and software / contents usage. 4:3 (portrait) is good for reading and writing one page at a time of books and PDFs (...

Needless to say, 4:3 would be much better. I wonder if the displays are glare, less glare or matt. We need to await tests with specified brightness and usage to know what the battery duration...

Without 4:3 displays, I am not interested.

Windows suffers in comparison to iOS and Android because iOS combines GUI simplicity with hardware quality and Android combines GUI simplicity with low price. Windows combines under-the-surface...

While 2014 may have been a good year for Windows notebooks, with the exception of Surface Pro 3 and a few expensive business tablets, it has been the year of the race to the bottom in the Windows...

Despite the significantly increased variety of Windows tablets, there is still no reliable Windows tablet with 10" 4:3 screen, not to mention matt. There also is no such ebook reader yet.

Improvements for business security must also be available for single personal computers because better security of the latter results in better security of the former. Windows 10 is announced as a...

The user must have an easy choice between local account and MS account because it is his own choice how to handle privacy. In some countries, people have a right by law or even constitutional law...

It will be interesting to test the following:
- usage independent of any cloud
- usage without any Microsoft user account but only with local user accounts
- differences between...

One thing I always wonder about such low cost PCs is whether one can easily remove the advertisement labels next to the keyboard.

There are objective and there are other subjective aspects of perfection. E.g., it is an objective advantage if a display does not obviously mirror external lights and otherwise the display has...

As good as it already is, the following aspects let the Surface Pro 3 be not quite perfect yet:

a) has a fan and is not noiseless yet (the next Intel CPUs might solve this),
b) the...

Yes, everybody using a cloud should use encryption. However, human rights must be independent of which technical methods are used. Besides, encryption does not guarantee privacy if (and they have...

Cloud is not an operating system issue but one of US law in its interaction with secret services. As long as US law does not guarantee privacy as much as German or European Community law do, MS...

Since Android One is planned only for a subset of all devices, many devices still do not get regular, immediate system updates and so offer security gaps, which malware can exploit. I am not...

@ymcpa73: Why care if a program is an "app" or a "desktop software". Many desktop softwares work in portrait mode and of them enough work well enough with touch. Of course, this is not so for each...

Thank you for your form factor diagrams. They express very well what I have always felt, and perceived visually, about the need for 4:3 for a tablet in portrait position. (And therefore I am still...

As far as I can already tell from the obvious facts, the Surface Pro 3 seems to overcome, or decrease the impact of, most of my criticism of earlier Surfaces: acceptable thickness (instead of the...

It will be interesting to see the battery life when surfing over WLAN - does the Z3795 move it closer to 5 or 10 hours? How reliable is the WLAN at a distance of 20m to the garden?

@WillyThePooh, zeblon, SvenJ:

Related to an MS account, there are three major different usage levels related to integrity and privacy: 1) never connect to the internet or use only 'local...

If, in a future Windows version, a local account is not available any longer and an MS account is forced, I switch to Linux. Why? An MS account prevents the user from verifying the integrity and...

Nowadays, a good SSD is good enough, so it can be the one built in the hybrid PC. Two SSDs would be nice for storage spaces, but one internal SSD, USB 3.0 and external backup HDDs are good enough...

Is it already known safely if and whether Windows RT and Windows Phone fuse until or after April 2015?

Tuesday, December 10, 2013 - 05:04

Consolidation is needed also under the surface. E.g., AppContainer should be available not only for Apps and the desktop-InternetExplorer, but for each software and all objects. Provide a well-...

How much are the System Builder prices for core / pro?

Friday, September 13, 2013 - 03:01

@wp7mango, the companies offering Windows tablets are not making the mistake to assume that some users want 16:9 or 16:10. They are making the mistake to assume that all users want it and that...
