Surface 2 Details Emerge Commented on: 32 weeks ago (September 9, 2013)

I've always liked to the look of these tablets, but Microsoft has done a terrible job of selling them. Surface RT, Surface Pro, and now Surface 2 and Surface 2 Pro (or whatever)? When you add the...

New Windows 8 “Back to School” Ad Strikes the Right Balance Commented on: 35 weeks ago (August 20, 2013)

Well, I certainly am impressed by a full-fledged ultrabook PC being more functional than an iPad. Yes, nicely done, Microsoft. NOT!

Windows 8.1 + ModernMix Commented on: 35 weeks ago (August 19, 2013)

I have Win 8 running on my main desktop PC, but I also have it thoroughly "Stardock-ized," with WindowBlinds, Start8, Fences, and ModernMix.

My advice to other desktop users would be don't...

With Bill Gates at the podium, no less! Who would you rather have had a beer with back then, Gates or Jobs?

What I Use: July 2013 Commented on: 38 weeks ago (July 25, 2013)

In Blue: Windows Store 2.0 Commented on: 44 weeks ago (June 18, 2013)

All very nice, but I'll probably continue to use browser-based search, where I can choose which search engine I want to use, for web searches. For PC searches, I hope MS will allow us to filter...
