@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: 1 year ago (July 16, 2014)

Well, now that Google is being allowed to leverage its search engine (income) to give away Android & Chrome, Microsoft should certainly do likewise with Windows, at least insofar as countering...

What We Learned About Windows in the WPC 2014 Opening Keynote Commented on: 1 year ago (July 14, 2014)

@ corbey

With SDK Release, a Better Understanding of Windows IoT Commented on: 1 year ago (July 13, 2014)

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

Kinect v2 for Windows on Sale Next Week Commented on: 1 year ago (July 8, 2014)

It certainly seems obvious that Microsoft really doesn't want anyone to buy these things...;) I mean, they've already (wisely in my view) amputated Kinect from the xBone, but could you imagine...

Plan B for Windows Phone? Commented on: 1 year ago (July 8, 2014)
