Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus Preview Commented on: 50 weeks ago (September 10, 2014)

Quoting 'prices' like $199 for the 16Gb iPhone 6 is terribly misleading, understandable as an Apple marketing trick but inappropriate to simply quote without comment from a journalist. Please...

Microsoft China: Windows 9 is "Coming Soon" Commented on: 51 weeks ago (September 2, 2014)

First cuckoo of spring this morning. A relative emailed to ask whether he should buy a new laptop now or wait for Threshold? Answer - his old model 7 years old but upgraded to Windows 7 and...

Hello, World: Surface Pro 3 Goes International Commented on: 1 year ago (August 29, 2014)

Entry level price is believable but the cost of higher end models is prohibitive. Somehow Apple get away with charging for SSD storage like its still 2012 but the only rationale for the Microsoft...

Standalone Xbox One Kinect Coming in October Commented on: 1 year ago (August 28, 2014)

The PC version comes with its own power supply - USB 3.0 doesn't deliver enough juice which is why the xbox one uses a custom port/cable. For that reason alone better to ship as separate product...

Surface 2 at $350: Time to Buy? Commented on: 1 year ago (August 26, 2014)

Web Apps should also respect the system on which they are running if they have a platform-native look -...

Coming Soon: Threshold Public Preview Commented on: 1 year ago (August 16, 2014)

Microsoft Abruptly Kills Skype for Windows Phone 7 Commented on: 1 year ago (August 8, 2014)

Gun. Foot. Aim. Fire. Hard to think up a better way for Microsoft to tell users its safer to stick with Android or iOS than take a chance on Windows phone. As SvenJ already commented they could at...

Getting Windows to the Threshold Commented on: 1 year ago (July 1, 2014)

Whatever the name, speaking as a developer if I produce a Windows store app I need a common API and mode of use for the 500million+ or whatever Windows 8 users there will be when Threshold ships...
