Why Doesn't Windows 8 Just Look Like THIS? (Take Two) Commented on: 1 year ago (April 26, 2012) Paul, you and I need to sit down and have a beer together. We could solve all kinds of problems. I am THE founding member of the Anything But Microsoft club, yet I think Metro is the most innovative...
Microsoft Touts IE Win in Performance Study Commented on: 2 years ago (April 5, 2012) Thanks for the heads up Nate. It really is a pretty good write up. I explained there that I thought the Windows numbers were slower because they are sampling slow, POS Windows computers, that Apple...
Microsoft Talks High DPI Displays for Windows 8 Commented on: 2 years ago (March 22, 2012) Once again the path taken by Microsoft is much different than Apple. These represent two philosophically different solutions to a common problem. So here's something else to keep an eye on....
Some Thoughts About the Windows 8 System Recommendations Commented on: 2 years ago (March 5, 2012) Great work, Paul. And I'm speaking for the entire body of recent work. I keep learning, thanks! Your comments about UEFI is what I learned just now. I was under the impression that UEFI was...
Start Orb Removed in Windows 8 Consumer Preview Commented on: 2 years ago (February 5, 2012) That is a huge step forward. Starting every task from one single spot was never a good idea, and efforts to circumvent it persisted until we end up back to a command line interface to find programs....
Now iSuppli Believes Windows Phone Will Surpass iPhone by 2015 Commented on: 2 years ago (January 23, 2012) Color me suspicious.

Best of Both Worlds? Debunking a Misguided Proposal for Windows 8 Commented on: 2 years ago (December 4, 2011) The only way legacy Windows is going to work on an ARM tablet is if the docking station has an x86 processor in it. The tablet will essentially become a monitor to the docking station. Windows 8 is...
So Apple's TV Plans Are ... To Copy Kinect? Commented on: 2 years ago (October 31, 2011) Copy Kinect? I don't think so. Siri is to Kinect what Call of Duty is to Pong, well maybe not Call of Duty, but certainly Pac Man. Siri is so much more than voice recognition. Apple is licensing...
Is This Nokia's First Windows Phone? Commented on: 2 years ago (October 24, 2011) Paul, your writing (or Microsoft's history) is in the 'wishful thinking' period. This is particularly evident in your recent piece, "The Windows 8 Paradox, A Mobile Market Reshuffle...
Windows 8 and the Registry Commented on: 2 years ago (October 16, 2011) A question Paul. What parts of the registry will exist on an ARM tablet? My guess is Metro doesn't need a registry to run. Perhaps the x86 version is making entries that are not part of Metro,...
