Microsoft's business model is done Commented on: 5 years ago (March 8, 2009) The DIY is a minuscule market. Dvorak's "calculus" does not apply in the general market where people buy complete systems. They do not assemble their own desktop computers. Microsoft does not charge...
Ed Bott: The end justifies the means (Updated) Commented on: 5 years ago (March 2, 2009) I am happy to have Microsoft ignore beta-tester suggestions. I want bug fixes and nothing more. I want Windows 7 sooner rather than later. I would take it “as it is” in W7 beta build 7000. I find it...
Amazon ships Kindle 2 a day early ... But is it a dollar short? (Or $150 short?) Commented on: 5 years ago (February 24, 2009) I was surprised to see that the battery is not user changeable.

No Ultimate Extras in Windows 7. But wait, it gets worse Commented on: 5 years ago (February 10, 2009) I have had Ultimate since day 1, never used any of the "extras". I don't know what they are (except Dreamscape) and I do not care if they disappear. But I believe Microsoft should offer something as...
RadioTime: Radio in Windows Media Center Commented on: 5 years ago (January 25, 2009) I tried to load this in Windows 7 Media Center without success. Has anybody gotten it to work with Windows 7?
Microsoft set to unveil MobileMe competitor next month Commented on: 5 years ago (January 19, 2009) I hope and expect that Microsoft will do a much better job than MobileMe.
Windows 7 Beta users: Run, don't walk, to download the MP3 patch Commented on: 5 years ago (January 14, 2009) @Paul: Thank you. This was not automatically added to the Windows 7 Windows Update, even though I manually ran the service.
