OK I’m not really trying to start some sh*t here but it’s a valid question that people are starting to ask me. I’m starting to get the glazed look in the eyes when I ask about Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 and people have begun to say that they are looking ahead to Windows 9 to see what Microsoft will do. I’m...

This site has been covering Windows since 2009 (years before Windows 8) and we were able to correctly predict a lot of the impact this OS would have. From the Start Button to Start Screen bootups to bad Surface Ads, we were able to call a lot of those things first. Well, in that spirit, Ed Bott wrote a really...

So regarding my interview with Adam Hartung. The response to this article has been fantastic. A lot of people have emailed me saying that they absolutely agree with almost everything he has to say. Some very prominent analyst who would shock you agree as well. I wanted to address a couple of things. First , a...

We hear it time and time again, Windows RT isn’t doing all that great, largely because people can buy ATOM-based Windows 8 devices for the same price. With ARM, you only get Windows Store apps and the only major positive is that you get slightly better battery life than ATOM. With Intel ATOM devices you will...

Paul Thurrott wrote a pretty impressive piece on his Supersite giving a very compelling theory about why Windows 8 has sold poorly over the previous holiday season. In a beautifully written piece called “Explaining Windows 8 PC Sales Over the Holidays” he lays out this central theory – because of the Netbook...

Yesterday I went to Best Buy in Sylmar with a friend of mine. She had to take back something and I wanted to look at the Microsoft Surface. Getting there, I go to the PC area (because you’d think that’s where it would be) and to my shock it wasn’t. I asked a sales person and he told me to go to where the cell...

Apple MacBook Pro I recently managed to get ahold of a MacBook Pro for a really good price due to the fact my friend was looking to upgrade the older 2010 device to a newer one. Sure it wasn’t the latest or greatest, but for the price I got— it was fine as a back-up device. That said, I was once a Mac user and...

Mrs. Larson-Green, As we all know, Steven Sinofsky is gone. The torch has officially been passed from Mr. Sinofsky to you, Steve Ballmer and Tami Reller. As a Microsoft Corporate Vice President, responsible for Program Management of the Windows Client, it’s probably fair to say that you are firmly in charge at...

With Microsoft’s recent release of its new streaming music/video service, Xbox Music and Video, the streaming music world is becoming awfully crowded. While it remains to be seen how well Microsoft will do in this space, we are seeing competitor Spotify continue to ramp up its own efforts and expanding its...

The wildly popular (Down Under at least, where the app is used by half of the company’s customers) Clickview Player App has made its way from mobile devices powered by iOS, to mobile (and other, less mobile) devices, powered by iOS’s bitter enemy, Windows 8. Clickview is primarily a school-based video hosting...
