State of the Personal Computing Market, Q2 2014 Commented on: 1 year ago (July 13, 2014)

I think it was IDC where I read it: PC sales in the US were up 6%. Declines were elsewhere, and I don't recall reading any data about Macs in the US, but I think ~10% is much closer to the mark,...

Samsung Gear Live First Impressions and Photos Commented on: 1 year ago (July 10, 2014)

These things are just so gimmicky. Another fad? I'm not so sure. Most people already carry cellphones around, and they provide the time at a glance--even "dumb" cellphones do that. With a...

Blackberry Reveals Mysterious Passport Phone/Tablet Hybrid Commented on: 1 year 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: 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)

If Microsoft can get its act back together in the next version of Windows, PCs will probably break records when a new and PC-suitable version of Windows finally ships.

I think the...

Microsoft Works to Get Windows 8/RT Users Updated to 8.1 Commented on: 1 year ago (July 2, 2014)

Microsoft is still struggling with the obvious solutions:

*Win8 needs an official start menu
*Win8.1 needs an official mass-market .iso that all of its users can either download or...

Start Menu Will Replace Start Screen in Threshold Commented on: 1 year ago (July 2, 2014)

@ Proesterchen

What's funny about the "peasants with pitchforks" analogy is: who were the peasants preparing to string up? Dr. Victor Frankenstein, that's who...;) Not really a very...

Getting Windows to the Threshold Commented on: 1 year ago (June 30, 2014)

(edited from my post @ Mary Jo's...)

....

Win8 is a great OS--I much prefer it to Win7. But I don't use Metro and never will (I am not a touch-screen customer so Metro is nothing but...

Sleeping with the Enemy: Google + Microsoft Office Commented on: 1 year ago (June 29, 2014)

IMO, Google's software is much inferior to Microsoft's, and so is Apple's. The core perceptual problem for Microsoft is that in the last few years the company has made a public spectacle of...
