(Re)Start Me Up: The Great Windows 8 Debate Commented on: 1 year ago (May 9, 2013)

I'm curious whether usability studies show that adding the start menu back improves familiarity. What about when the mouse user is browsing on a metro-style app. There won't be any start button....

In Blue: Multi-PC App Uninstall Commented on: 1 year ago (April 24, 2013)

That's an interesting thought, where you say it's surprising the checkbox isn't ticked by default. With Microsoft's faster release cycle, how much time will they have for usability studies?

What I’ve Learned from Using “Blue”: All Apps Commented on: 1 year ago (April 4, 2013)

I wonder why they didn't choose to implement other Metro-style apps like this. So in the Store app, for example, instead of horizontally scrolling a seemingly infinite list of categories, the user...

Google Stabs WebKit in the Back Commented on: 1 year ago (April 3, 2013)

Wrong! :) While it would indeed be undesirable to have hundreds of browser engines to test for, we design our Web sites and apps for the Open Web Platform. We, in theory, only need to write our...

Blue’s Clues: SPDY Support in IE 11 Commented on: 1 year ago (April 1, 2013)

It's interesting that they would choose to support this now that HTTP/2.0 is under development. SPDY was meant to be more of an experiment to prove what was possible and to encourage the work that...

Now Available: Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7 Commented on: 1 year ago (February 26, 2013)

Switch to WebKit? Don't you know disastrous that would be?

Windows Phone 8 App Pick: Twitter 2.0 Commented on: 1 year ago (February 26, 2013)

We've finally got an awesome Twitter app on Windows Phone. And hopefully this is a sign that they've submitted the Windows 8 app for approval in the Windows Store as well!

Blue Commented on: 1 year ago (February 17, 2013)

Sounds like Blue is exactly what I was expecting it to be. But I would hope that they'll still be making feature-releases for the built-in Microsoft apps. Windows 8 is the only OS where the apps...

Microsoft Surface with Windows 8 Pro Review Commented on: 1 year ago (February 6, 2013)

The problem with a 1080p resolution is that you have to scale up the DPI to 150%. That means the new resolution of the device is 1280 x 720, which falls short of the 1366 x 768 minimum resolution...

Next Up for Google Chrome: Speech Recognition Commented on: 1 year ago (January 15, 2013)

And where is the spec for this "Web Speech API"? I don't see it at the W3C or WHATWG's Web sites.

Sigh. It looks like we've got a new proprietary API for WebKit.
