Embracing the Low-Cost PC Commented on: 28 weeks ago (March 3, 2014)

Well, Paul, I think you should buy one of those $399 laptops. Most come with a 15" screen, a Core i3, 4GB of RAM, a 320GB+ HDD, and 802.11 b/g/n. This is more power than most anyone using a PC...

Nokia X Preview Commented on: 28 weeks ago (February 25, 2014)

This really doesn't make much sense - unless Microsoft is planning on drawing in low-end android customers and then quietly transition the underlying code to Windows Phone 8.1.

Microsoft (...

Dell Venue 11 Pro First Impressions and Photos Commented on: 30 weeks ago (February 11, 2014)

This looks like a sweet device but nowadays, I would not settle for 2GB of RAM or the x86 version of Windows. The RAM "sweet spot" for Windows is 2GB but that is your total RAM capacity, your...

Windows 8.1 Update 1 Preview: Now with More Integration Commented on: 33 weeks ago (January 23, 2014)

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

"Fundamental changes are not coming, I was told."

It's a pipedream to expect any...

Windows 8.1 Update 1 (Very Early) Preview Commented on: 35 weeks ago (January 9, 2014)

You can create a local account on your PC so you don't have to be connected to your Microsoft account. You will still have to login to use SkyDrive from your browser but one way or another, if...

Windows Phone Turned the Corner in 2013 Commented on: 38 weeks ago (December 19, 2013)

The unification of Windows RT/Phone will keep "Windows on ARM" alive and insure that the "desktop-less" Windows "tablet" will succeed while traditional OEMs successfully market Windows 8.1 tablets...

Microsoft Pulls Surface Pro 2 Firmware Update Commented on: 38 weeks ago (December 19, 2013)

There might be a simple "stop-gap" available here. I would expect that those who are experiencing these problems are users who depend upon the Sleep function or the Hibernate function. And maybe...

The Sad State of Amazon Apps on Windows Commented on: 39 weeks ago (December 10, 2013)

I have been a Kindle user for a number of years now and, frankly, I don't have much interest in using my Surface (RT or Pro) to read Kindle e-books. The Kindle reader is much better suited to...

Microsoft Accounts Getting New Security Improvements Commented on: 39 weeks ago (December 10, 2013)

Unfortunately, Google, Facebook and all the rest have the same attitude. They want you to use THEIR service as your "single sign-on". The difference is that Microsoft wants to protect your data...

Dell Venue 8 Pro: What Dell Got Right Commented on: 44 weeks ago (November 5, 2013)

That sounds a little low to me but I could be wrong. Microsoft's minimum recommendation for Windows 8.1 (x86) is 16GB of storage but that is unrealistically low. Even 64GB of storage does not...
