Plan B for Windows Phone? Commented on: 19 weeks ago (July 10, 2014)

Just saying four percent does not tell the whole story. This market is dominated by Samsung and Apple and, at 4%, Microsoft/Nokia is a distant THIRD PLACE, just ahead of BlackBerry - once the...

Update 1 Becomes Mandatory on Windows 8.1 Today Commented on: 23 weeks ago (June 11, 2014)

Surface Family Grows: Mini, Sure, But How About Maxi Too? Commented on: 28 weeks ago (May 8, 2014)

Windows 8.1 Update 1 Preview: Now with More Integration Commented on: 43 weeks ago (January 23, 2014)

I am just not convinced that "Threshold" will be called Windows 9. You said it yourself, Paul:
