Maybe Microsoft just wants to announce new phones for the U.S. market at a venue that they hope will get more coverage from the mainstream U.S. media and that won't take place at 3:00 am New York...

iOS for the Windows Guy: Turn Down the Glare Commented on: 8 weeks ago (September 2, 2014)

Yes, those options are there for a reason, but not necessarily the reasons that Paul provides. Accessibility options are usually meant for the disabled or the visually impaired, not for normal,...

Consumer Apps and Services: Microsoft's Often-Overlooked Crown Jewels Commented on: 8 weeks ago (August 31, 2014)

I guess I'm not really loyal to any one tech ecosystem. I use Windows PCs exclusively at work and at home, except that I also have a MacBook Air for testing purposes. However, my phone is an...

Google I/O 2014: Android Takes the L Commented on: 18 weeks ago (June 26, 2014)

Isn't it strange how Google can present a 3-hour keynote and not even mention it's primary business, which is selling advertising? Is the L really about anything except serving more targeted ads...
