A Theory about the Office on iPad Schedule Commented on: 1 year ago (April 11, 2013)

Given that interest in 7"/8" tablets is much higher than 10" for everyday non-demanding applications, it would also make sense for Microsoft to wait until there are smaller Windows tablets on the...

What Microsoft Could Learn from the Google Play Update Commented on: 1 year ago (April 9, 2013)

You forgot to mention what a waste of space the store UI is on desktop. Front page, the double-width double-height large tiles are physically larger on my 24" (1200p) monitor than my full Nexus 7...

What I’ve Learned from Dual-Booting "Blue" Commented on: 1 year ago (April 2, 2013)

As you point out, fragmenting Windows 8 by making Blue an optional/chargeable upgrade makes zero sense unless the goal were to generate extreme developer hostility. I'm not clear why this has even...

Windows Blue Leaks! Commented on: 1 year ago (March 25, 2013)

Paul, any rumours yet as to whether we can expect to be able to create WinRT-based desktop apps available through the Windows store with Blue?

I find it amusing to read these comments about...

Windows Phone 8 App Pick: Skype 2.4 Commented on: 1 year ago (March 20, 2013)

Indeed. And most normal people hang onto phones for 2-3 years so WP7 won't go away quickly. Apart from those developers (US only) attracted by the prospect of a possible $100 reward for their WP8...

One Year Later, Kinect for Windows Remains a Non-Event Commented on: 1 year ago (March 18, 2013)

Making the Kinect system available on Xbox is one thing. Developing a general...

What I Use: March 2013 Commented on: 1 year ago (March 6, 2013)

I'm curious why you choose low resolution screens. We've a 6 year old 15" notebook at 900p like your Ultrabook and find the extra space 1080p on my usual notebook delivers is essential for my work...

Surface Pro, Coming Soon to a Country Near You Commented on: 1 year ago (February 28, 2013)

From the UK perspective, Surface Pro will have missed the boat for many of us. PCs are an international business and we expect product available at time of launch, not several months later. There...

Feeling Blue: Microsoft, You’re Releasing it Wrong Commented on: 1 year ago (February 25, 2013)

Surely the 6.2 kernel was pretty much finished apart from bug fixing etc. couple of years ago. If there are improvements to improve efficiency on new processor designs or enable higher levels of...

Microsoft Surface with Windows 8 Pro Review Commented on: 1 year ago (February 5, 2013)

I noticed you only have 3 rows of tiles on the start screen of the 1080p pro. My 15.5" 1080p start screen has 5 rows of tiles and a correspondingly larger number of columns. Makes it much easier...
