Office Mobile for Android Phones Preview Commented on: 1 year ago (July 31, 2013)

The problem with this is that it implicitly signals that MS's commitment to developing its own mobile platform is "soft" (pun not intended); that is, if the mobile OS fails, they can stick with...

Nokia: Optimistic About the Future, Realistic About Microsoft Commented on: 1 year ago (July 28, 2013)

It occurred to me that MS has a real opportunity to make inroads into US smartphone market share by making WP indispensable (somehow) to users of the Xbox One.

Sadly, however, novel ideas...

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

Your IT department is staffed with clowns.

Internet Explorer 11 Developer Preview for Windows 7 Commented on: 1 year ago (July 25, 2013)

How is the announcement that Xbox One will permit self-publishing for indie developers not the most important Microsoft news item of the day?

Windows Weekly 319: Microsoft 3.0 Commented on: 1 year ago (July 15, 2013)

The tragedy here is not the price (although $299 on contract is kind of steep for a still struggling OS), nor even carrier exclusivity. It is carrier exclusivity WITH AT&T. They have been...

Enterprise Feature Pack Coming to Windows Phone 8 … in 2014 Commented on: 1 year ago (July 10, 2013)

On a related topic (i.e., no news on WP 8.1), have there been any rumours about MS creating a director of corporate communications position (they may have such a position already, but he/she has...

Microsoft Reverses Course on Xbox One Policies Commented on: 1 year ago (June 19, 2013)

This was clearly done for PR reasons, and, for that alone, I think MS was right to do it. Traded or "sold-as-used" games are a huge problem for the video game development industry, but they will...

Nokia + Huawei? Commented on: 1 year ago (June 19, 2013)
