Thinking About Microsoft's Brands Commented on: 13 weeks ago (June 29, 2014)

I think you're being a bit over critical of Microsoft's ability to develop brands and overlooking some history too. Windows is a good brand but didn't set sales on fire for its first several years...

Surface Pro 3: Reading Experience Commented on: 17 weeks ago (June 1, 2014)

1. Paul, I agree it is fair to compare the SP3 to current generation iPads if we must do so, but it must also be said that the vast majority of iPads in the wild are not Airs and therefore weigh...

Surface Pro 3: Let's Talk About the Price Commented on: 18 weeks ago (May 22, 2014)

I appreciate you picking up on Nadella's comment about competing because, judging from a lot of commentary I've seen, a lot of people didn't. I thought his words at this event sent several...

Can Microsoft Turn Digital Ink Into a Key Advantage for Windows and Surface? Commented on: 19 weeks ago (May 19, 2014)

I think there is a market for ink as well. It is still unrealized potential on my Surface Pro: it works well but isn't convenient given no place to store the stylus and the weight of the device...

Nokia Lumia 1020 Preview Commented on: 1 year ago (July 11, 2013)

It’s Official: The iPad is a PC Commented on: 1 year ago (May 31, 2013)

I've noted the same usage of technology that Shaw wrote about at meetings and conferences that I attend (which are not tech oriented). Two years ago my colleagues were using laptops or netbooks...

Dell Speaks on Windows RT. Why? Commented on: 1 year ago (April 16, 2013)
