Windows 8.1 Update 1 (Very Early) Preview Commented on: 41 weeks ago (January 8, 2014)

I hope they'll switch Skydrive back to working as a standalone desktop app. I'm not interested in using a Microsoft login and being tracked. I don't care if they say they aren't doing it now,...

Windows Weekly 340: Can I Call You Steve? Commented on: 44 weeks ago (December 16, 2013)

Any idea if with the Theshold stuff they'll re-enable use of SkyDrive as a desktop app? I liked it, but I quit using it under 8.1 because of the requirement I log in to the OS with a Microsoft...

Microsoft Makes It Easier to Switch from Gmail to Outlook.com Commented on: 45 weeks ago (December 13, 2013)

I wish they'd release some utility that will sync your Outlook 2013 calendar with outlook.com. I don't care about email, since I download to Outlook & delete. I don't keep it on the web....

Windows 8.1 Enterprise Heads to MSDN, TechNet, Volume License Customers Commented on: 1 year ago (September 17, 2013)

Has anyone with VL and Software Assurance actually been able to access the TechNet subscription? Their VL site has been a disaster since they redesigned it a couple of years ago and has never...

Windows 8.1 Pricing Revealed Commented on: 1 year ago (September 17, 2013)

Any idea why Win8 can do a full upgrade (carry everything) from Win7, but Win8.1 cannot? Has something changed sufficiently with the internals that this isn't practical? Or just a decision not...

Microsoft Unveils Changes to Microsoft Account Aliases Commented on: 1 year ago (August 21, 2013)

I'm praying this will let you keep your grandfathered SkyDrive storage. I have an old email, _@hotmail.com that has 25 GB SkyDrive storage, but I got...

Microsoft Wins the High Ground in War with Google Commented on: 1 year ago (August 20, 2013)

I have a problem with Google's cavalier attitude towards privacy & data collection. It scares the crap out of me to log in to GMail and see 'recommended contacts' based on the fact they...

Windows 8.1 + ModernMix Commented on: 1 year ago (August 19, 2013)

I agree ModernMix is pretty slick, but the reality is there are no Modern apps I'm interested in running -- I got a much better experience in every case with an existing desktop app, sometimes...

Microsoft Explains SkyDrive Integration in Windows 8.1 Commented on: 1 year ago (July 23, 2013)

Any idea if they're looking into encryption with user-defined keys? I like the idea of moving a lot of my stuff to the cloud, but not without encryption that only I control. I've spent a lot of...

Windows 7 SP1 Hits Automatic Installation Milestone Commented on: 1 year ago (March 19, 2013)

I'm curious if there's even one business anywhere that has purposely kept SP1 off their users' PCs. If so, I'd love to hear the reason. I just can't imagine some app incompatibility this far out...
