Back by Popular Demand? Commented on: 27 weeks ago (January 22, 2014)

I'm sure Microsoft's strategy to compete with its customers (and OEMs are, by far, their largest customers) played a part in HP exploring alternatives to Windows, but this seems more related to...

"Threshold" to be Called Windows 9, Ship in April 2015 Commented on: 28 weeks ago (January 11, 2014)

I'd argue that in the case of Windows 8 (and somewhat 8.1), it's the product that's being rejected, not necessarily (or only) the marketing.

As such, this current product is beyond saving...

2013 PC Sales: Down But Not Out Commented on: 28 weeks ago (January 11, 2014)

I think you fumble-fingered Asus' unit shipments, Paul, they don't align with the market share and decline you quoted.

Windows 8.1 Update 1 (Very Early) Preview Commented on: 28 weeks ago (January 10, 2014)

Nokia Lumia 1520 Review Commented on: 34 weeks ago (November 28, 2013)

"And there's no quick way to access the camera roll from this app, which is odd. (You can do so briefly after taking a shot only.)"

To answer my remark from the other article, apparently the upgrade needed somewhere between 10 and 15 free GBs to complete in my case (W8Pro w/ MC -> 8.1Pro w/ MC), and NO, Microsoft doesn't...

Here Comes Windows 8.1 Commented on: 40 weeks ago (October 17, 2013)

So I've now twice tried to updating W8P/MC to 8.1, both time failing to complete and automatically being rolled back to 8. I suspect it's because I only have a couple of GBs free after the...
