I agree - I would prefer a mobile data connection over an additional USB port.

However, changing the mini-HDMI/displayport connection to a Thunderbolt port would be quite useful, given its...

Let me start off by saying that I agree the Surface RT is underpowered and relatively slow.

But I absolutely love the form factor and the keyboard. It is slim and is perfect for my studying...

What's funny about all this is that they increased printer support in 8.1 because my old laser printer all of a sudden was able to install.

I think Microsoft is attempting to keep power...

Hi Paul,

I think a more effective way to about this is to setup a premium subscription option for the Super Site, which removes ads and provides access to some long-form content like the...

Sorry Paul, but I don't know why you're disappointed or surprised that Microsoft is sticking with the Metro strategy. A significant part of the reason why you want a 'boot to desktop' feature is...

In relation to Pogue et al complaining about missing features, I suppose they're willing to cut Microsoft some slack on the proviso that they rapidly get the WP7 featureset up to speed.

I...

Liking the new blog format Paul. It's certainly a lot better than before. Still not great compared to Wordpress, but certainly a step forward and easier to read.

LOL at the mention of Justin Bieber as a possible celebrity endorsement. The guy is addicted to his iPhone - it would be a hardsell for him to go to a KIN. But, with enough money, I suppose...

BXP I think the lack of aggression on Microsoft's part has much to do with the hefty penalties from antitrust bodies in the EU and US that have basically skewered the company's hitherto...

Ocean, there's a fine balance between generating hype about upcoming products and actually delivering those products. The problem with Microsoft is that it never got that balance right until...

Mum, iPhone/iPad are no longer "amazing". We're not in the year 2007 anymore where these interfaces were mindblowing compared to the competition.

There may be a certain novelty in using an...

I think BXP made some interesting points. In effect, the argument goes like so: Ballmer appears to be making Microsoft the new IBM, the company that makes so much money but to which no-one feels...

I have to add one more point.

One of the main differences between Apple's approach and Microsoft's approach is that Microsoft has always relied on partners to carry their products. In every...

Monday, April 26, 2010 - 03:24

I accept the point that Microsoft is no longer in the conversation, but to lambast the company because they haven't made a big enough deal over Windows 7 sales and by extension hampered their...

I'm actually surprised by Paul's comment about the HP Slate. The iPad OS is ridiculously limited and the fact that it has 150,000 applications is neither here nor there given that Windows 7 has...

Sorry Apple fanboys, but the reality is that iWork is a bad joke. It has nowhere near the functionality of Microsoft Office, which is the benchmark in office productivity. But, more importantly, it...

After wasting 90 minutes watching this presentation, I'm still trying to work out the killer application on this device. Why do I need it?

Sorry Paul, I don't agree that Eric Ligman was out of place in what he said. You've simply blown his original article out of all reasonable proportions as an excuse to go on a tirade. Having read...

@rr0de74@live.com OSX is not easy to use. Window management is a pain the ass and expose is not obvious. There is no feedback when you install hardware. Things either work, or they don't and if they...

@rr0de74@live.com Well, two hours or so to in-place upgrade is a small price to pay for spending several more hours reinstalling all of my software and configuring everything to work just as I want...

Good to hear lketchum. I upgraded without removing the security software, iTunes or Adobe Flash, and it still worked fine. In fact, performance is much improved, if anything.
Sunday, November 1, 2009 - 05:48
Btw, despite all the people against in-place upgrades, I've done this twice with two of my Vista Ultimate machines and the in-place upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate went without a hitch. It did take a...

Care factor = zero. Much ado about nothing, really.

How painful for people to still be on dialup in this day and age. Heck, wireless HSPA would be much more tolerable. Either way, good customer service would warrant the mailout of a CD with a handful...

This should make life much easier.

Logjamming, the best thing to do with an iMac - apart from throwing it in the bin lest it die from overheating because Apple decided you don't need a fan - is to install Windows on it.
Thursday, October 1, 2009 - 11:03
rrode74 - I would somewhat agree. It would make no sense to run an old version of photoshop in a virtual machine nor any other graphic-intensive application.
Thursday, October 1, 2009 - 08:53
teemark, the point of XP Mode is to enable corporations to upgrade their computers and software with confidence that they're going to be able to take advantage of Windows 7 features without affecting...

Norton AV 2009 & 2010 have been completely overhauled. They are now great products and they don't slow down your PC.
Saturday, September 26, 2009 - 07:02
Bloody hell, why is the US so far behind the rest of the world in mobile tech? Geez, good ol' isolated Australia has had it for the best part of a decade! And two of your major networks are still...
