Windows 8.1 Tip: Upgrade from Windows 7 Commented on: 25 weeks ago (October 18, 2013)

Second paragraph should read "Upgrade to Windows 8.0 first"

The fact that Microsoft doesn't support direct upgrades from Windows 7 to 8.1 is shameful, especially if they want to expand the...

Windows 8.1 + SkyDrive = Smart Files Commented on: 28 weeks ago (September 30, 2013)

Microsoft was getting oh so close to catching up with DropBox, but this is a major step back.

Bing Reborn Commented on: 30 weeks ago (September 17, 2013)

Oh Microsoft, so many great products, so few people who understand anything about branding. Who else would use the same name (LINQ and Lync) for two totally unrelated products? Who else would use...

Office for iPad: Yes or No? Commented on: 1 year ago (January 30, 2013)

Jensen Harris Tells the Story of the Design of Windows 8 Commented on: 1 year ago (November 20, 2012)

Paul might nominally be a Microsoft supporter, but he is no fanboy. He calls them out when they've screwed up, and gives props to the competition (Apple, Google, Amazon, etc.) when it is due.

The Final Insult? Microsoft Explains, Dumps on, Media Center in Windows 8 Commented on: 1 year ago (May 4, 2012) WMC was an answer to a question that no one really asked: How can I use an expensive PC (with its attendant Windows license), which requires constant maintenance, updating, patching, hardening, and...
You've Been "Samsunged"! Commented on: 2 years ago (January 23, 2012) What? You mean the phone I just bought three months ago won't receive an upgrade to the latest version of Android? I just got Samsunged!
