I met Tony Bradley a few years ago at some technology shindig we attended in Las Vegas a few years ago and we have stayed in touch. Tony is a very highly regarded tech analyst and writer with a very strong security background and I always ping him when I want to get a second opinion on major Microsoft news. Anyway, I...

So in light of all the Microsoft related noise happening out there, I recently got a chance to sit down with someone who does this for a living. Wes Miller is a (highly respected) research analyst at Directions on Microsoft and has been on the Microsoft beat for a while. I met him at the first BUILD conference 100...

So earlier today, we wrote about the new partnership between Lenovo and Pokki and being the nosy bastard that I am, I wanted to find out a little more. I reached out to the good folks at Pokki and spoke with Chester Ng (one of the cofounders of SweetLabs) and their Senior Marketing Manager, Alan Masarsky. Some of you...

Did you have any questions or concerns before we get started? Adam: No that’s OK, fine. Onuora: Once again thank you. Could you just give my readers a little bit of a...

A few days ago, one of my writers sent me an email asking if I had seen “what Adam Hartung wrote about Microsoft”. I went online to check it out and was blown away by the article on Forbes.com titled “Microsoft Still Can’t Find Its Future. Is It Too Late for the Company?“. While the article made some interesting points, it...

So on October 12th, I was at the Rio hotel in Lovely Las Vegas as a round table speaker for the SMB Nation 2012 Fall Conference. This was a really well organized and fun event and it was a pleasure to be invited (Thanks Harry!) The plan was that I, Tony Bradley (from PC World) and a couple of others would do a round...

OK so there are times when a magazine asks you a question and you pause and give a diplomatic answer. There are times when you need to realize that the words you say on behalf of your company may be dissected and reprinted all around the world and, on the eve of a very important product launch, it shouldn’t be a major...

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer gave an interview to the Seattle times where he talked about Microsoft, Windows 8 and their new upcoming tablet device – the Microsoft Surface.
