So it’s Friday and it’s time for a little mischief poll. The issue of who Microsoft’s CEO will be seems to be something that will be resolved soon and that’s a good thing. While there are many options on the table, I haven’t been shy about saying who’s the hands down favorite. Having said that, let’s have some fun...

So it’s been quite a while since Microsoft released Windows 8 and then subsequently, Windows 8.1 and I haven’t checked in in a while. As you all may know, I wasn’t a huge fan and even thought Windows 8.1 did alleviate a lot of the ills of Windows 8, the Operating System has still been hard to deal with and hasn’t...

So a lot has been said recently about Windows 8.1 or Windows Blue actually having a Start Button and possibly having an option to boot directly to the desktop. This news is interesting and if true would directly contradict Microsoft’s silence to all the criticism from prominent bloggers so far. Microsoft was 100%...

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...

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...

A new survey has been conducted that was composed of 1200 IT employees. What was it about? The survey asked about various company plans for Windows 8. Things like “who is upgrading, who isn’t”. The results? 23.3 percent plan to skip Windows 8 altogether. As for the rest of the results, 49.9 percent has no current plans...

OK, I’ll bite. Microsoft seem to want us to discuss this so here goes. Microsoft seem to have teased us with Surface RT pricing briefly today. Just to recap, there were three options. 64 GB with Black Touch cover $699 32 GB with Black Touch Cover $599 32 GB without the Black Touch Cover $499 Real simple, take the...

A new survey from Forumswindows8.com has popped up asking more than 50,000 users what their favorite Windows OS is now and other information regarding Windows 8 in general. According to the site, the results paint a picture that shows early users of the Windows 8 aren’t nearly as enthusiastic about it as you might...
