Windows 9 Technical Preview Virtual Desktops and Notification Center Video Leaks: An Analysis Commented on: 5 weeks ago (September 14, 2014)

I think it would be better if system wide (OS) communication is consistently "metro style". The notification center should pop out of the left like the settings or list of printers. If it's not...

What the Heck is Happening to Windows? Commented on: 36 weeks ago (February 9, 2014)

I don't agree with your suggestion that a device is as black and white for its uses for productivity and consumption. Having different OS's for each makes no logical sense as a long term strategy...

Looking for that Mythical Microsoft of Old Commented on: 1 year ago (October 13, 2013)

I think people hankering back to the old days are forgetting that the industry we live in now is very different to back then. I remember Microsoft talking at conferences back in the 90s and...

What’s Happening with Outlook RT? Commented on: 1 year ago (April 4, 2013)

Reality Check Time for Cross-Platform Gaming Demo Commented on: 4 years ago (March 7, 2010) Fine, Shadowrun was bad. But there's nothing that really links the game experience with the ability to share progress across platforms. I could write a game using the native APIs in each platform...
Microsoft plans major Windows 7 announcement Commented on: 5 years ago (April 3, 2009) SoftGird client must be #1 - which opens the door for some easy client install scenarios over the internet. I would also bet MS still has some touch based announcements up its sleave. There's a...
The return of Digital Media Core Commented on: 6 years ago (May 20, 2008) I too went for H246, using DVD Fab - which is a great tool. But I recently bought an HP Media Smart TV with built in extender - and this cannot play these files. It *does* play the WMVs fine though...
