Apple's iWork Foibles Should Be a Warning to Microsoft Commented on: 1 year ago (November 3, 2013)

Remember Microsoft Works? For years and years it was hard to find an OEM PC sold that didn't come bundled with Microsoft Works in some fashion--that's iWork to a T, imo: a dumbed-down software...

Windows Weekly 335: There's a Big But Commented on: 1 year ago (November 3, 2013)

There aren't any "desktop huggers"....there are only "tablet huggers", don't 'ya know...;) The notion that people will abandon desktops for tablets is about as likely as people abandoning...

Xbox One User Experience Preview Commented on: 1 year ago (October 28, 2013)

PC gaming is, imo, better across the board than console gaming. Since the new consoles are now x86 PCs as envisioned by AMD, I'd expect that porting to PC from consoles and vice-versa should be...

Surface Docking Station: First Impressions and Photos Commented on: 1 year ago (October 28, 2013)

Just to say that many people are having problems with mini-display ports. New-gen R9/R7AMD discrete gpus have dropped them, in fact, in favor of the standard display port (which also...

Windows Weekly 334: I Am Not A Tool Commented on: 1 year ago (October 25, 2013)

@ bradwestness

Bingo. The true cost of OS X is buried in the cost of Mac hardware in the premiums that Apple customers pay. Up to $2k for the rights to run Mac-only OS X seems way too...

Microsoft Surface 2: First Impressions and Photos Commented on: 1 year ago (October 21, 2013)

"...Unlike the Intel systems you'll find this fall, Surface 2 will never slow down over time as can happen with traditional Windows-based PCs."

It's been so long since I've had a Windows...

Windows 8.1 Upgrade Woes Commented on: 1 year ago (October 20, 2013)

Good article, Paul! I hope someone at Microsoft is reading. Sheeesh. I won't repeat what I said in your recent "updating to 8.1 from Win7 tips" article, because you covered all the bases here,...

Windows 8.1 Tip: Upgrade from Windows 8 Enterprise Commented on: 1 year ago (October 19, 2013)
