  • The Next CEO Of Microsoft Suddenly No Longer Works At Microsoft [View article]
    I think you're spot on. Thus the anger that can be detected in Ballmer.

  • Windows 8: The Brave And The Bold [View article]
    That's fine Windows 7 is a great is. W8 can do all that W7 does but much faster.

  • The Upcoming Microsoft Train Wreck [View article]
    That would have helped your story very much. Thing is Surface RT has a very good opportunity to be the best consumer tablet out there. Surface Pro will be able to run those legacy apps as well as do the things RT does. I hardly see it as a train wreck for the company. I just hop Surface Pro is offered with Office preinstalled. The sign is out on Apple. They've gone from $705 to bow $600. I'm not predicting how low it will ho and the iPad mini may see a slight tick up but I'd be selling Apple mow if it were me.

    Maybe opposite but is to accomplish the same goal of having the same touch and feel across all devices.

    Put the crack pipe down. Surface truly bridges the gap between consumer entertainment device and enterprise capable work device. Also what about XBOX, Kinect, SQL, Windows Server, SystemCenter, Exchange, Dynamics and and the plethora of other products they produce. BTW WP8 is the best phone out there. MSFT has come back to life and Office 13 is still to come. Better buy MSFT or be prepared to weap latter.

    Zune HD suffered from terrible marketing. Have you ever used one? I still use mine in my car and it beats iPod in every way.

    Office 10 works seamless with Win8 but Office 13 will be even better when it realeses early next year.

    Same thing happens when you set down at your local coffee shop with one.

    Take the time to setup the start screen to fit your needs. Out of the box it might not be a fit to make your day flow but with your own customization it should.

  • Yahoo (YHOO) says it will ignore the "Do Not Track" privacy requests sent by search partner Microsoft's (MSFT) Internet Explorer 10. Microsoft's decision to make "Do Not Track" a default setting on IE10 has already sparked an uproar within the Internet advertising industry, and Yahoo's move could further pressure Microsoft to backtrack. [View news story]
    My understanding is most if not all other major browsers have tracking turned on. Microsoft is trying to protect his users and give them a choice. Yahoo is wrong in its stance and wants to track your every move on the internet. Is that what you want or do you want tracking turned off by default.

  • Microsoft (MSFT) officially launches Windows 8 at an NYC event (live blog) that's light on new details. More importantly, a flurry of Windows 8 reviews are out. Like others, David Pogue isn't a fan of Microsoft's efforts to fuse two UIs: "TileWorld is fantastic for touch screens ... Desktop Windows is obviously designed for the mouse ... you can’t live exclusively in one world or the other." The Verge has similar concerns, but is more positive about Win. 8's tablet potential. "Picking up a tablet PC with Windows 8 makes an iPad feel immediately out of date." (more[View news story]
    There are 2 keyboards available, one is a soft touch the other a traditional hard key. The hard key version is $10 more than the soft key but solves the issue with using in your lap.

    Good, the Zune HD was awesome, better than any music device Apple has produced. Timing and advertising are what killed it.
