WPC 2014: Microsoft's Chromebook Counterattack Commented on: 1 week ago (July 15, 2014)

"Many people—most people, perhaps—don't need any of that stuff. "

This is such a key point. I would submit that it's the main reason for the decline of the PC market. (I call it more of a...

Looking for Strategy as Microsoft Enters FY15 Commented on: 1 week ago (July 11, 2014)

That was my take too. Regardless of any significant strategy clues, my sense of the letter was:

"Microsoft is mine now. I'm not a Steve Ballmer or Bill Gates wannabe. This is the...

Microsoft Works to Get Windows 8/RT Users Updated to 8.1 Commented on: 3 weeks ago (July 1, 2014)

I wouldn't have any issue with them releasing an update through the store as long as it worked smoothly. That one didn't. It was a total pain. It didn't work, then it sort of worked and after a...

Start Menu Will Replace Start Screen in Threshold Commented on: 3 weeks ago (July 1, 2014)

I'm right there with you. I have questions, but I will reserve judgment till I see it. That said, I tend to trust Terry Myerson and his group more than the dictatorial Steven Sikorsky and his...

New Start Menu Delayed Until 2015? Commented on: 7 weeks ago (June 3, 2014)

While I don't disagree with you, I can't imagine that you would be any less able to control the Start screen through group policy than you can the start menu. That said, I don't work with this...

Surface Pro 3: Let's Talk About the Price Commented on: 8 weeks ago (May 22, 2014)

Surface Pro 3: Surface Pro Type Cover Commented on: 9 weeks ago (May 21, 2014)

Totally agree, but I doubt it will ever happen.

Can Microsoft Turn Digital Ink Into a Key Advantage for Windows and Surface? Commented on: 9 weeks ago (May 19, 2014)

It's very important to understand that 'inking' is more than just handwriting. Certainly that's a key piece of it. But it's much more than that.

There's drawing, sketching, painting,...

New Details Emerge About Bigger New Surface Pro Commented on: 9 weeks ago (May 19, 2014)

I'm right there with you. I don't like the 16x9 resolution at all. It's fine when you're using the thing as an ultrabook - which is essentially what I do with the Surface Pro 2. I never use it...

Microsoft to Launch Cheaper Xbox One with No Kinect Commented on: 10 weeks ago (May 13, 2014)

I don't think it's a 'play' at all. I think it's much simpler than that. People aren't buying Xbox Ones. That needs to change.

The question is "why aren't they buying them?" It surely...
