With SDK Release, a Better Understanding of Windows IoT Commented on: 11 weeks ago (July 13, 2014)

It's difficult for me to parse the idea that the far more limited, mobile based environment is "more modern"--unless that is just another way of saying "newer." Even then, the newest most...

State of the Personal Computing Market, Q2 2014 Commented on: 11 weeks 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: 11 weeks 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...

I think the...

Microsoft Works to Get Windows 8/RT Users Updated to 8.1 Commented on: 12 weeks ago (July 2, 2014)

Microsoft is still struggling with the obvious solutions:

Start Menu Will Replace Start Screen in Threshold Commented on: 12 weeks 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...
