Windows + Mac: Boot Camp Commented on: 4 weeks ago (September 19, 2014)

But who uses Bootcamp when the virtual machines are so good? There's a choice of three vendors and the performance is great, plus you don't have to put up with Windows for all the standard OS...

Skype: Would You Like Some Ads with that Chat? Commented on: 2 years ago (June 14, 2012) Bye bye Skype. You were good for a while until uncle Steve got greedy. Fortunately there's plenty of other SIP clients available. BTW is it only Windos clients? So Mac users aren't going...
Battle of the Betas: Windows 8 vs. OS X Mountain Lion Commented on: 2 years ago (May 24, 2012) As a Lion user (and I do feel that's the right term), I've not had a particularly good experience with the device convergence strategy. Little devices that aren't windowed/mouse/...

Windows 8 Consumer Preview: Install Windows 8 on a Mac Commented on: 2 years ago (March 9, 2012) Why not do it the way I did. Install Windows 8 in a VM. Then delete it. There fixed it for you. In any case you should not be using Beta code as your primary machine. It'll only end in tears...

A New IE Ad: A More Beautiful Web Commented on: 2 years ago (March 5, 2012) Why would anyone use IE for their web browser? The past 9 versions have been the most bug-ridden unreliable and security hole ridden bits of software known to man; how is IE version 10 going to be...
Windows 8 Consumer Preview: The Top 8 Features Commented on: 2 years ago (March 3, 2012) Not much in Windows 8 for someone using a PC rather than a Tablet, such as the sort of things one does at WORK, not when PLAYING with a fondle slab. It's a very fine line to weave between the...
