So I have spent some time with a Surface Pro 3 and thought a review would make some sense. As people who have read this blog for a while know, I reviewed the Surface Pro and Surface Pro 2 in the past and was intrigued but less than impressed. Those devices seemed like they fell just a little short of what was needed...

It has been a while since I’ve done a 30 Days series. Now, I am preparing to immerse myself in both the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 and a Windows Phone 8.1 smartphone at the same time. I have actually engaged in 30 Days series for both of these devices / platforms before. I wrote 30 Days with Windows Phone 7 at PCWorld in...

I saw this online and had to post it. Great review of the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 from Joanna Stern at the Wall Street Journal. In her words.. Yes, Microsoft is confident that—with a larger, higher-resolution 12-inch HD screen, new keyboard, improved kickstand and $799 starting price—its new Surface Pro 3 tablet can...

Here we go again So most of you who read this blog know that recently I have become a huge critic and skeptic of the direction Microsoft chose to go in with Windows 8.x and the corresponding Windows Phone models. I reviewed the Microsoft Surface and the Surface Pro 2 and was still left wanting a little. 8 months...

The year is about to end, and that can only mean one thing. It is the time of top 10 lists! Microsoft had a whirlwind of a year in 2013, even by its lofty standards, and though a few days still remain before the sun rises on a new year, there are more than enough Redmond highlights to go by. Below is a selection of...

So I took my sweet time reviewing the Surface Pro 2 because I didn’t want to hold on to it for a week and then give a rushed review. You can read my unboxing of the Surface Pro 2 here and some of my usage issues here. So I got the Microsoft Surface Pro 2 in October when it was released and had a chance to play with it...

Here’s my review of Windows 8.1. So Windows 8.1 is here and after checking it out and reading about all the benefits it brings, it still doesn’t resonate with me. I made the move to Windows 8 because I found a really great deal at Staples where I was able to get Windows 8 Pro for $59.99. My PC was pretty quick but after...

So some good news. DrivePop are having a sale this week only and are knocking off 20% off their unlimited cloud storage option. You can see the review I did of the product here. To recap: DrivePop is an online cloud backup solution for PC’s or Macs that enables you to keep your precious files, artifacts and documents...

Rob Boirun, the CEO of DrivePop hit me up recently and asked me to do a review of their new service DrivePop so here goes. What is DrivePop? DrivePop is an online cloud backup solution for PC’s or Macs that enables you to keep your precious files, artifacts and documents in the cloud. It works by taking copies of those...

I have been taking a deep and long look at Windows 8.1 and wanted to wait till all the initial reviews had happened to write down what I felt about the new update. In addition, I find that like recorded music, you may feel differently the first time you see a product versus a few weeks later. So, here goes… Oh by the...
