Office 2013 Gotcha: Standalone Products are for One PC Only Commented on: 1 year ago (February 14, 2013)

Well that's just going to encourage a ton of piracy. I'm sorry Microsoft. If I buy Office (and I did), I'm not going to re-purchase it for a new PC. That's insane. And for what? There's no way...

Bad News, Windows Phone Fans: Google Now is the Real Deal Commented on: 1 year ago (February 14, 2013)

You know what, it wouldn't be all that difficult to match and surpass Google Now with the current WP8 platform features. Having tried Google Now when it came out, my thoughts were that it was...

The Final Piece of the Hybrid PC Puzzle Commented on: 1 year ago (January 22, 2013)

Yeah, I can't imagine why a dock solution wouldn't have been part of the original Surface design scope. In fact, I'm sure it was. Would be interesting to hear why it didn't make it into the final...

Microsoft Surface with Windows 8 Pro Preview Commented on: 1 year ago (January 22, 2013)

And as a software developer, you've never had to leave your office/home to show an early build of your software, or to travel and work from a hotel?

You also realize that you can easily...
