Rip-Off of Windows Phone’s People-Centric Interface was Inevitable Commented on: 1 year ago (April 6, 2013)

Nice post Paul.

Sadly, Microsoft has done almost nothing to move the core user experience on Windows Phone forward for the past 3 years (other than perhaps the Start Screen changes). The...

Windows 8 Calendar App and the Great Google Flip-Flop Commented on: 1 year ago (March 27, 2013)

Paul, I believe that Google cut off EAS support for *new* activations way back on January 30 for all platforms except Windows Phone. So if you just bought a new Windows 8 PC or Surface, it doesn'...

Microsoft Comes Out in Defense of Windows RT Commented on: 1 year ago (March 23, 2013)

Paul, I think you are wrong, sorry. I find your view of Windows RT to be way too biased toward desktop power users. Windows RT, in the context of tablet use, is easily competitive with other...

Going Pro: Portrait Mode Commented on: 1 year ago (February 12, 2013)

Checked Kindle for Windows 8 on my 23" desktop display and it does offer a 2-column view:

From the app, swipe or right-click to bring up the app commands. Tap or click on 'View', then set '...

Going Pro: Thinking About Performance Commented on: 1 year ago (February 11, 2013)

Consider that on both Windows Phone and...

Fixing Windows 8, Part 2: Boot to the Desktop Commented on: 1 year ago (December 21, 2012)

Hi Paul... Great series of posts.

In keeping with this idea I think Microsoft should add a configuration wizard that lets one choose to optimize Windows for either desktop or tablet...

Google Disses Windows 8 and Windows Phone, Ships Maps for iPhone Commented on: 1 year ago (December 13, 2012)

'Advertising giant Google...'

Thanks for the smile, Paul. :-)

Of course Google won't support Windows Phone. Microsoft and Apple play the same games; the only reason iTunes is on...

Is There Still Room for Blackberry and Windows Phone? Commented on: 1 year ago (December 12, 2012)

I understand the appeal of Android to OEMs and carriers, but I never understood why consumers chose it. Even today when it is vastly improved in Jelly Bean, it still feels overly complex with...

Mailbag: December 9, 2012 Commented on: 1 year ago (December 10, 2012)

Paul, take this for what it's worth:

I seriously appreciate the information you provide, and the advocacy for Windows users, though I do sometimes find your style to be a bit off-putting. I...
