11 million Safari downloads? Um. Sort of Commented on: 5 years ago (June 13, 2009) "Apple basically pushed it out to everyone it possibly could, whether they wanted it or not." The same thing MS does with IE. QED
Best Buy memo details Windows 7 some upgrade pricing Commented on: 5 years ago (June 5, 2009) "Contrary to what Engadget says, the leaked memo does not say that "Windows Vista doesn't work." It says that Windows 7 is "Vista that works."" By saying Win7 is Vista that works, it implies Vista...
Microsoft: Zune HD is real Commented on: 5 years ago (May 27, 2009) Unless it is _significantly_ cheaper, it will die. If it's only marginally cheaper, it won't win the market - after all, why by the "2nd coming" if you can get the "real thing" (iPod Touch) for just...
Napster finally offers a reasonable subscription service Commented on: 5 years ago (May 19, 2009) "You mean like the Zune service? Yeah...it is simple and compelling" Services that are region locked to US and Canada are not simple and compelling. They're idiotic. MS in their infinite wisdom have...
Apple posts effective response to Laptop Hunters ads Commented on: 5 years ago (May 13, 2009) "What will Apple do when Windows 7 ships? I mean, it's smaller, faster, and better than Vista. It approaches Mac-like elegant and design. It's just a better OS. Do they simply prattle on about the...
$30,000 to fill an iPod Commented on: 5 years ago (May 12, 2009) This advert is dumb. The concept is great, and I like it, but the level of arrogance and irritation is higher than MS's ability to actually commit to the concept, because it isn't available...
HomeGroup, Homegroup, homegroup ... explained Commented on: 5 years ago (May 11, 2009) "Windows 7 is so good we can be picky. That's a good sign." I'm not so sure any more. The recent performance benchmarks showing no actual change from Vista -> Win7 makes me think I'll pass on 7 -...
Windows 7: Elegant, yes. But too many tiny inconsistencies Commented on: 5 years ago (May 9, 2009) I think this is symbolic of a major problem with MS' OSes - they make a decent foundation, and built great stuff on top of it, but they don't take the time to polish it up to the standard that it...
The magic of wishful thinking ... This time in the Apple camp Commented on: 5 years ago (May 6, 2009) "I guess what I'm trying to point out is just that people see what they want to see. " There is a degree of irony here - this statement coming from a site which focuses on changes to and features in...
Slipstream Office 2007 with SP2 Commented on: 5 years ago (April 28, 2009) @wattsvilleblues: Presumably because SP2 builds directly on top of the SP1 codebase. So when changes are made, to say, WINWORD.exe etc. that file is included only once in its updated form, and that...
