Microsoft Announces New Mice with Dedicated Start Buttons Commented on: 47 weeks ago (May 23, 2013)

No, no Microsoft! I wanted a *software* start button connected to a software start menu--and here you go putting a plastic "start button" on a friggin' mouse, instead! You are taking this whole...

In New Ad, Microsoft Finally Takes on the iPad Commented on: 47 weeks ago (May 23, 2013)

I agree with Paul's assessment, but I have to point out that with Surface you are paying for the extra software, and with Pro you are paying for the much more robust hardware. IMO, of course...

Xbox One Preview: A Look at the Reveal Games Commented on: 47 weeks ago (May 23, 2013)

I really tire of late with the way the word "hate" is bandied about by people who seem not to know what it means. "Criticism" is not a synonym for "hate." But often this word "hate" is used...

Xbox One Preview Commented on: 48 weeks ago (May 22, 2013)

The problem for Microsoft is that xb1 does not exist in a vacuum. The PS4 will be its primary and only competitor. The PS4's hardware is better than the xB1, and not by a small margin, either....

Lenovo Takes on MacBook Air with ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch Commented on: 48 weeks ago (May 17, 2013)

Bingo! You've met the future of the tablet form factor. I feel certain this is the way it will go for all but the cheapest touchscreen devices which have to omit the standard keyboard (but will...

Google I/O 2013, Day One: A Flood of New and Improved Google Services Commented on: 48 weeks ago (May 16, 2013)

I hate to say it as it...

New Coke? Commented on: 49 weeks ago (May 13, 2013)

@cybersaurusrex

The difference, however, and it's a major difference, is that the Vista changes marked a decisive turning point in the under-the-hood code base for Windows. The UI changes...

The Craziest Windows 8 Ads Ever Made Commented on: 49 weeks ago (May 12, 2013)

I actually think they are good ads! Some cultures have a deeper appreciation for slapstick than others, I guess. I think these ads would do splendidly in the US, frankly. We loved Benny Hill and...

Julie Larson-Green Talks about “Blue” and the Future of Windows Commented on: 49 weeks ago (May 9, 2013)
