Today on Square Trade’s Facebook page I saw this picture. The interesting thing about seeing this on Square Trade’s page is they are a Warranty company. The only thing that was said about it is “Rumor has it Samsung is working on an “unbreakable” phone. Would you try it out?” If Samsung is making a Windows Phone with a...

Microsoft Guru Paul Thurrott wrote a series of articles on how he would change Windows 8 (they can be found on his site ).  I thought I’d write one on how I would change the Desktop environment. Now I’m also taking into account that Microsoft isn’t going to bring the Start Menu back (which I agree with them). The...

Yesterday I went to Best Buy in Sylmar with a friend of mine. She had to take back something and I wanted to look at the Microsoft Surface. Getting there, I go to the PC area (because you’d think that’s where it would be) and to my shock it wasn’t. I asked a sales person and he told me to go to where the cell phones...

Paul Thurrott wrote an article which gave his opinion why RIM and Windows Phone may not have a chance. I’m going to give my opinion why I think they (at least one of the companies) do have a chance. For one the PC is (even though not as much as it use to be) expensive while the cell phone (especially if you get it...

I had to go back to Windows 7 on my desktop PC. Not because I don’t like Windows 8, but because I was having a freezing issue where I to do a hard reset to be able to get Windows 8 up and running again. The issue is intermittent so its hard to reproduce it. My PC is about 4 years old which I built myself. With my basic...

According to an article written on TechCrunch, Microsoft might be making a stripped-down version of the Xbox for media and casual games. It’ll run on a stripped-down version of Windows 8 and be an instant on device. This makes a lot of sense because even though a lot of new TV’s have these options built in, they can...

In an article on Ubergizmo today Tyler Lee wrote  about a rumor that Microsoft might be working on scaling up on Windows Phone 8 devices up to 7” and scaling down on Windows RT devices to as small as 8.4”. I’m taking this rumor with a grain of salt though. The article says that ZTE is working on a Windows Phone with a...

I’d thought I’d write an article on my thoughts of the Windows 8 and Windows Phone lineup. Generally I’m pleased with what I see that’s coming and to both platforms, there are some really nice hardware. There are a few devices that certain companies are bringing out that I’m not liking very much though. First I’ll...

After reading the article that Onuora wrote about what Marc Benioff from Salesforce.com said about Windows 8 I had to put my two cents in. I had to re-write the article because at first I was shocked at what Benioff said, but then I was talking to a friend of mine about it and he kind of made me see things a little...

I was reading the story Andrew Grush wrote about the future of Windows upgrades and he brought up some good points. When thinking of updates, upgrades and update numbers though you also have to take into consideration what Microsoft has in plan with Windows. This could go a couple of ways. 1) Microsoft could keep the...
