Hi, it’s Onuora Amobi, the CEO of Learn About The Web. I’m also the guy responsible for building EyeOnWindows.com and quite a few other technology sites. Websites like this one have made me hundreds of thousands of dollars over the past few years and they have been a lot of fun to manage. When I started though, it was...

Here’s a chance to win $500 – tell us what your vision for Windows 9 is. So we are now fully focused on Windows 9 thanks to WZOR and Thurrott. Over the next few months, we will be examining what new (or old) technology Microsoft is going to try and stuff into this “new” release of Windows. I’m a little flush with...

I’m in the UK right now on a business trip and as a result didn’t get a chance to go to CES this year. From all the coverage I’ve had a chance to catch, seems like (just like last year) I didn’t really miss much. For those of you who haven’t been to CES as a journalist, it’s like this: Imagine going to the zoo on a...

So a few months ago, I wrote this article about Yahoo and the need for them to branch out and start rewarding/incentivizing users to use their Search Engine. The article was called “Yahoo should pay you to use it’s search engine” and the piece was on Seeking Alpha. I was thinking about the fact that for some reason,...

So I stopped by my local Best Buy today and was looking around. I stumbled on the Acer Aspire R7 laptop and HAD to share this with you guys. What the hell are they thinking with this track pad? It’s ABOVE the keyboard so where exactly would your palms go? Is it me or is this some of the dumbest hardware you have ever...

So these guys do have a sense of humor. This is a funny internal video from Microsoft showing Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer horsing around as Austin Powers and Dr. Evil. In the video you can see that Steve Ballmer is having a blast delivering his lines as Dr. Evil. It does show a fun and silly side of these guys...

OK, so the fun and games are ALMOST over. Microsoft recently announced that their severely discounted upgrade pricing will come to an end in January. After January 31st of 2013, Windows 8 Pro will cost $199.99 and the Windows 8 “Core” Upgrade will be $129.99. My (obvious) question is would you pay those prices to...

So my favorite show in the morning as I get my son ready for school is MSNBC’s hit political talk show “Morning Joe”. Hands down this is the most popular politics morning show in America with widespread coverage throughout the United States. In fact I referred to that show in a post where they gave Windows 8 the thumbs...

LL Cool J – Windows 8 This week at CES, Microsoft announced a music collaboration app that’s being made just for Windows 8. The app is called Liquid MyConnect Studio. It’s produced by Boomdizzle, a company co-founded by musician actor LL Cool J. LL Cool J says he had the idea while he was on the road and had a hard time...

So, if you’re Microsoft, surely there’s a point when you realize that this is ridiculous? I haven’t been shy about saying that the absence of  a start menu and the insistence on making users deal with the start screen are hands down two of the biggest problems with Windows 8. Company after company continues to offer...
