SuperSite Flashback: Windows 95 Commented on: 50 weeks ago (August 7, 2013)

I was firmly in the OS/2 camp in those days. I even wrote a few articles about it for Computer Bits (local to Portland, OR) magazine in the late 90s. I remember how the multitasking blew me away...

Silly XP Retirement Party Should be a Wake Instead Commented on: 1 year ago (July 25, 2013)

I have a 40+ year old Maytag washer and dryer set which is still repairable (but hardly needs it). It scoffs at the concept of built-in obsolescence. :D

What I Use: July 2013 Commented on: 1 year ago (July 24, 2013)

Paul, I am curious whether your 920 ever had the rapid battery drain (accompanied by intense heating) issue that some have reported. HERE City Lens does it every time for me and some other apps...

Dell XPS 11 and XPS 12 Preview Commented on: 1 year ago (June 4, 2013)

I am happy with my XPS 12. The touchpad is kind of cheesy but I don't really use it because I am not a fan of touchpads generally. I wanted to consolidate desk and mobile into one device and...

I spend my day on...

Maybe They Should Just Call It Windows 7.8 Commented on: 1 year ago (April 19, 2013)

Rip-Off of Windows Phone’s People-Centric Interface was Inevitable Commented on: 1 year ago (April 8, 2013)

Whether Microsoft thinks so or not, rounded corners and textural graphics are considered more advanced than the visual part of the Metro tile concept. I've had a Win Phone since day one of WP7...

What I’ve Learned from Using “Blue”: All Apps Commented on: 1 year ago (April 4, 2013)

The more Windows 8.x is like WP8, the better it will be. Visual cues are a cornerstone of good UI design. Microsoft needs someone to keep the two synced like the .NET folks have aimed to do with...

Nokia Lumia 920 Review Commented on: 1 year ago (March 29, 2013)

Spot on review. I treat mine like a baby, but it is nice to know that if I drop it, there is a good chance no harm will come from it. You also made me feel better about not having a yellow one...
