Interesting interview by PCWorld where they interview the CEO of Intel. It’s a good read, you should check it out. Some of the stuff that caught my eye: He’s not a fan of the X86 nomenclature. PCWORLD: Where does the x86 microprocessor architecture used in our laptops and desktops fit in to consumers’...

So someone asked me the other day about this list and I rattled them off the top of my head. She said that it would probably be a good list to share so here I am. Windows 8 development has been ongoing for about 3 + years and there have been a bunch of tech reporters who have covered it pretty closely from...

As you may know, having met them, I’m big fans of Mary Jo Foley and Ed Bott and you should be too. They are both very seasoned technology reporters and great writers. Every time I get an opportunity to read their stuff or watch their videos, I try to make the time. The good folks at  LaptopMag.com put together...

This is a pretty hardcore and comprehensive interview on the Charlie Rose show on 7/9. In it, Vanity Fair contributing editor Kurt Eichenwald discusses how companies like Apple, Google, and Facebook out-maneuvered Microsoft in the tech race, and what Microsoft could do to become dominant once again. It’s a...

I just read a great article in Forbes where they interview Steve Ballmer. It’s a pretty nuanced and balanced portrayal of the CEO of Microsoft. Some choice quotes: Will Microsoft be disrupted? I don’t know.  So far we’ve done a pretty good job of avoiding it.  It doesn’t mean we’ve done a perfect job, doesn’t...

I had the pleasure of working with Marc at a large entertainment company a few lifetimes ago and came to respect his ability to manage large, complex, technology solutions. He has over 20 years of enterprise...

A really good interview about Windows 8 from ZDNet. This one is particularly interesting because this is one of the few interviews where the massively negative feedback about the product is addressed (primarily by Ed). This is one of the best and most candid interviews I have seen and you need to watch...

An interesting interview you might want to read on  TechnologyReview.com. It’s a fascinating but brief interview where you can get a feel for Microsoft’s view on security. A sample: Bing recently began letting users sign in with Facebook and share search results. Do you handle social media any...

Well, remember I did that MVPNation conference in Redmond a few months ago? Well the organizers have been gracious enough to share the video and I wanted to pass it to you guys. We talked about Windows 8 and it was quite a discussion. It was only a few months ago but already so much has changed since we had...

I met Manan Kakkar in the press room at the Microsoft BUILD conference last September. Manan is a soft spoken tech writer who writes about technology for ZDNet, Techie Buzz and my his blog Being Manan. He’s a Microsoft MVP for Windows Desktop (2009, 2010 & 2011) and he just finished his masters degree in...
