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

This will make purchasing next tablet very simple decision. Not like it's hard now for the most people, but this would literally put Surface int the same box with Zune (half-assed effort in the...

Google Inches Ever-Closer to a Usable Office Alternative Commented on: 1 year ago (January 23, 2013)

Out of curiosity, how do you know when someone "decides not to use office"? I think office is a professional tool and industry standard for documents very much like Photoshop for images. I never...

Fixing Windows 8, Part 6: Offer Desktop Apps in Windows Store ... For Both Windows 8 and RT Commented on: 1 year ago (January 7, 2013)

Realistically speaking, we shouldn't expect MS to put a lot of energy into merging desktop and metro, as end game is still moving apps into metro sandbox. But having existing desktop applications...

Is There Still Room for Blackberry and Windows Phone? Commented on: 2 years ago (December 12, 2012)

MS saying it is committed to WP and Win8, but I'm not confident it is. It does too many things and abandoning them way too easily. Remember Zune? Silverlight? Wp7? (ye, I know, I'll get 7.8 "just...

IE Usage Share was 55 Percent in November Commented on: 2 years ago (December 3, 2012)

In the past years first thing I did setting up new PC for a friend/relative would be downloading FF or Chrome. Not really doing it lately. IE 9+ is just fine and it is one thing less to worry...
