Windows 8.1 Update 1: Use the Taskbar in Modern Apps Commented on: 32 weeks ago (March 9, 2014)

Because Windows 8, in whatever iteration, is not a desktop OS (or as I call it WINDOS, ie Windows 8 Is Not a Desktop OS). It's a tablet OS. So they have to hide the taskbar,and the other controls...

Windows 8.1 + Microsoft Account Commented on: 33 weeks ago (March 2, 2014)

I find it annoying to have to enter a password every time I start the PC.

Beyond that, I mistrust the notion of integrating Bing into search. It seems so unnecessary, that surely the...

Free Windows? Maybe Commented on: 33 weeks ago (February 28, 2014)

Windows 8.1 Update 1 Preview: More Good News for PC Users Commented on: 38 weeks ago (January 26, 2014)

Chrome 32 vs. Windows Commented on: 40 weeks ago (January 15, 2014)

Ah, I've wanted to say something like this to all the Windows 8 and 8.1 apologists who turn offensive when anyone expresses dislike of the latest Microsoft OS:

This is the future of web...

Cheap vs. Good Value Commented on: 40 weeks ago (January 13, 2014)

I fail to see a problem with Chromecast, at elast in some cases.
