Microsoft Muddies the One Windows Waters Commented on: 5 weeks ago (July 23, 2014)

Sounds good to me--I think folks have to do more to realize that a lot of what he's saying is designed for people who don't know the difference between versions of Windows and would not know those...

Xbox One Sales Improve Thanks to Cheaper Model Commented on: 5 weeks ago (July 19, 2014)

@kri77777

No question the price reduction of $100 was done to simply to achieve pricing parity with Sony--obviously, the raw cost of the Kinect components is not $100. But cutting the...

Satya Nadella Memo to Employees About Layoffs Commented on: 6 weeks ago (July 17, 2014)

@Nareed

The havoc wreaked by those two people in the few years before the "reckoning" (Sinofsky likely fired and Ballmer put where he can do the least damage-but as rich as Croesus,...

WPC 2014: Microsoft's Chromebook Counterattack Commented on: 6 weeks ago (July 16, 2014)

What We Learned About Windows in the WPC 2014 Opening Keynote Commented on: 6 weeks ago (July 14, 2014)

State of the Personal Computing Market, Q2 2014 Commented on: 6 weeks ago (July 13, 2014)

Blackberry Reveals Mysterious Passport Phone/Tablet Hybrid Commented on: 7 weeks ago (July 8, 2014)

Well, all I can say is that the visible keyboard is a huge step up from having to share an already small ~4-ish inch screen with a touch keyboard! Ugh.

It reminds me of one of Jobs' [RIP...

Kinect v2 for Windows on Sale Next Week Commented on: 7 weeks ago (July 8, 2014)
