Windows + Mac: Which Windows Commented on: 2 days ago (September 16, 2014)

Still cannot figure out why Microsoft would raise the price of the 8.1 Pro full DVD *retail* version (32-bit & 64-bit disks included) from the $105.xx my pal bought it for via Amazon just a...

Apple Reports Record Pre-Orders for iPhone 6 Commented on: 4 days ago (September 15, 2014)

At every i-Product introduction I can recall, Apple always cites "record orders." Yet, through it all the company's market share keeps slipping. Here's the supreme irony: even as Cook & pals...

Surface Pro 3 v. MacBook Air Commented on: 4 days ago (September 15, 2014)

I endured the slings and arrows of 13" screens in 1986 with my Amiga 500. Of course, at that time it was 'bestest and biggest and would display 4,096 colors on screen when my Tandy 1000 topped...

Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus Preview Commented on: 1 week ago (September 9, 2014)

Maybe I'm just too old, but...

Just what the world needs...more cell phones! Surely it is obvious to a fault that we don't have enough of them. As the Valley Girls used to say...Gag me...

Cortana Puts iPhone Users in Group Therapy Commented on: 1 week ago (September 9, 2014)

I like Microsoft spoof ads, but I'd almost rather they ignore the Apple silliness like the company used to have the good sense to do. Jobs could scorch the Heavens with his blistering anti-...
