Xbox One Privacy Concerns Debunked Commented on: 1 year ago (June 9, 2013)

I think that Microsoft has pretty well cooked its goose with the "always connected" and other publisher-friendly (anti-consumer) things they've decided to do--that's enough on its own to nail down...

Xbox One Game Licensing Explained Commented on: 1 year ago (June 7, 2013)

This is a silly argument that I keep hearing as some kind of an apology for what Microsoft is doing with the ill-fated xb1...;) Steam isn't remotely comparable for the following reasons:

Windows 8.1 Preview … Visually Commented on: 1 year ago (June 5, 2013)

I think someone at Microsoft has had a brain aneurysm--because the guy who did this presentation apparently thinks everyone has a touchscreen. I really haven't seen this much of the RDF since...

Will Haswell Save Windows 8? Commented on: 1 year ago (June 3, 2013)

With 8.1, the only Explorer GUI element that won't be present is the start menu--the rest of the Explorer GUI (as found in Win7) is present and accounted for in 8.1. Still, in 8.0 (trying to get...

In Blue: Bing Integration is the Marquee New Feature Commented on: 1 year ago (June 1, 2013)

Defending the Design of the Xbox One Commented on: 1 year ago (May 31, 2013)

One of the things I've always passionately disliked about Apple has been the company's emphasis on its case designs--the "outside" of its computers and devices--to the extent that attention to the...

It’s Official: The iPad is a PC Commented on: 1 year ago (May 31, 2013)

The image you used for the illustration is apt; that old IBM is only slightly exceeded by the computing power of an iPad. Seriously, if you want to compare an iPad to a PC, then best go back ten...

In Blue: Start Experience Changes Commented on: 1 year ago (May 29, 2013)

Blue sounds good. I'll certainly give the revamped start screen a look--the "All programs" setting right now just doesn't allow me enough flexibility--so I'm using the boot-to-desktop/start-...
