Samsung backs down and will no longer disable Windows Update Commented on: 5 days ago (June 28, 2015)

This is a confusing issue, at least as framed here. I haven't read a Microsoft statement that Samsung was *not* giving end-users a chance to disable/enable Windows update according to their...

How Windows 10 Will Handle Clean Installs Commented on: 1 week ago (June 20, 2015)

Rod,

It's my understanding that changes in hardware will only be handled as per your remarks here if one is upgrading from an OEM license. Windows 10 upgrades are for the corresponding...

Successfully Cancelling Your Windows 10 Upgrade Reservation Commented on: 2 weeks ago (June 14, 2015)

On July 29th Microsoft will be releasing the .iso, so there's really no reason to upgrade through WU unless you really feel more comfortable doing that *cough*...;) I don't think the company...

Being Genuine on Windows 10 Commented on: 6 weeks ago (May 16, 2015)

I think that Microsoft has to say that Insider participants have to own an upgrade OS in order to get Win10 RTM free of charge & legitimately. If he didn't say that then everyone on Earth...

The trials and tribulations of installing Windows 10 build 10061 Commented on: 9 weeks ago (April 27, 2015)

I think what amazes me constantly is this insane idea--mythos, really--that seems to surround the release of anything Apple makes. That is, that it's something brand new, never before seen on...

Windows 8.1 adoption and Microsoft app store trends Commented on: 10 weeks ago (April 20, 2015)

I don't mix cell phones with my computers and have always thought that commingling them is a mistake, but that's just me...;) Frankly, I don't care who makes my cell phone. Apple long ago ceded...

Will Windows 10 launch in late July? Commented on: 10 weeks ago (April 20, 2015)

Microsoft deliberately left Windows 8.1 bereft of more desktop-centric features in order to create more of a demand for Windows 10--but I really don't object to that since Windows 8 was an...

Google in EU crosshairs for comparison shopping services and Android issues Commented on: 11 weeks ago (April 16, 2015)

I might have some sympathy for the EuC if:

1) If instead of fining companies, the EuC would seek to educate EU consumers as to the software practices it believes they should avoid

2...

Apple's big week: Watches and MacBooks (and Outlook) Commented on: 11 weeks ago (April 15, 2015)

@Rxdiaz
