Plan B for Windows Phone? Commented on: 23 weeks ago (July 8, 2014)

MSFT *made* Windows irrelevant by going off on the disastrous WinRT/WinPRT tangent ... and then by declaring Win32/Desktop as "legacy" APIs. It was the biggest corporate suicide in history. The...

Is 2014 the Year of the Hybrid PC? Commented on: 26 weeks ago (June 14, 2014)

About the Intel news on increased business PC sales, have we heard which version of Windows the businesses are having installed on them? I have to imagine that Win7 is going strong.

Surface Pro 3: The Mobile Office Commented on: 27 weeks ago (June 6, 2014)

I played around with the SP3 at my local MSFT store tonight. Very nice machine. The thing that struck me most was how "large" the screen looked compared to the 11.6" screen on my Samsung Series 7...

Surface Pro 3: Fan and Heat Commented on: 29 weeks ago (May 27, 2014)

"I had sort of hoped—expected, even—that the new Modern mobile apps, written for a platform that is designed to be as energy efficient as possible, would be somewhat immune to the age-old PC...

Live from New York, It's Microsoft Surface Commented on: 30 weeks ago (May 20, 2014)

Windows Team Sets Schedule to Ludicrous Speed Commented on: 34 weeks ago (April 23, 2014)

Windows 8.1 Update 1 Tip: Take the Next Step with ModernMix Commented on: 35 weeks ago (April 11, 2014)

Updates to Windows 8.1 are a Step Forward, Not a Retreat Commented on: 36 weeks ago (April 7, 2014)

WP81 is a *significant* improvement in the RT system for developers. WinRT and WinPRT are aligned nicely (WinRT having won out). If I'm reading the docs correctly it looks like I will be able to...

Microsoft Releases Source Code for Early MS-DOS and Word Versions Commented on: 38 weeks ago (March 25, 2014)

I wish MSFT would release the source code to Win31/95 as well ... just to counter the so-called conventional wisdom at the time that they "broke" competitor's programs intentionally. What people...

Mozilla Kills Modern Version of Firefox Commented on: 39 weeks ago (March 16, 2014)
