The most strategic tech error of the 21st Century surely has to be the way that Google has mishandled their Operating System – Chrome OS. OK maybe that’s hyperbole but based on the fact that Microsoft stumbled loudly and publicly with Windows 8, it’s hard to disagree that this is the perfect time for an OS competitor to...

A few months ago, the Obama administration did something that quite frankly was pretty shameful. They let word leak that they were considering Susan Rice for the Secretary of State position and then they let her dangle in the wind for weeks as opponents savaged her in the press. Now this isn’t a political blog and...

So last Friday, I asked you guys to tell me whether you would buy a Microsoft Surface Pro and opened up a poll last week. The results were VERY interesting. As of this morning, almost 1200 of you had responded – Thank You Very Much. To set the context again, the Microsoft Surface Pro with Windows 8 will be out in a...

So as you all know, we are all about to be introduced to the lates Operating System from Microsoft – Windows 8. There is one thing that I have recently started to wonder about and that is software theft and piracy. Now obviously I don’t condone that and it is wrong. DO NOT SHARE OR LEAK SOFTWARE (there, I’m...

Whether we are talking about video game systems, computer platforms, televisions, or really any electronic device at all, one thing remains: brand loyalty. Brand loyalty is also harshly known by many around the Internet as fanboyism. My big question for the day is why. Despite accusations I’ve received for various...

I’ve had a chance to sit back and think about some of the key factors that will determine the relative success of Windows 8 Tablets when they are released over the next couple of years. I say relative because this is Microsoft and they will sell units either way – the question is just how many. I put out feelers to my...

Fixing Windows 8 — a new site run (apparently run) by user interface designer and former Microsoft employee Michael Bibik Jr seems to have been shut down. The URL seems to be going to a blank page at this point. While this is just speculation, it does seem like the author or authors of the blog had no idea exactly how...
