Chester Ng – CMO SweetLabs Yesterday, I introduced you to Pokki, the new platform developed by Sweetlabs. I believe I described it as “an interesting desktop based version of the Apple Store, Windows 8 App Store and Download.com all merged into one”. After doing the demo and looking thoroughly at the concept, I...

I had a chance to meet Wes Miller in Seattle at the MVP Nation Windows 8 Conference. Wes has a substantial amount of expertise in SQL Server, SharePoint Server, and Windows (including deployment, security, and operating system internals). He  analyzes and writes about Microsoft’s SQL Server and SharePoint...

The best part of owning this blog is getting to meet and interview some of the smartest minds in technology today. I met Tony Bradley at the Windows 8 MVP Nation conference  in Seattle a few weeks ago. I was extremely impressed by his depth of knowledge of Windows at the enterprise level. For those of you who...

I found this video online that you guys might be interested in. Paul Thurrott is a veteran Windows 8 tech journalist and analyst and his analysis is usually very good. In this video, Paul Thurrott demonstrates Windows 8 on the tablet in this edition of Windows IT Pro Insider. Sitting next to Paul are Sean...
