Wow. So I guess for the most part you guys and girls agree with me. I wrote an article yesterday discussing how The Verge’s characterization of Windows Blue as (potentially) yet another new OS had to be wrong. If it was right, it would be a disaster. For the record, I am betting that the new Blue updates will be...

In an article on Ubergizmo today Tyler Lee wrote  about a rumor that Microsoft might be working on scaling up on Windows Phone 8 devices up to 7” and scaling down on Windows RT devices to as small as 8.4”. I’m taking this rumor with a grain of salt though. The article says that ZTE is working on a Windows Phone with a...

Previously, Windows 8 Update reported on how the Nokia Lumia 920 was put up by Best Buy for preorder only to be pulled about 24 hours later. At the time I suggested it was unlikely that all four color variants could have sold out and that it was probably pulled for another reason. Looks like I was wrong. Today Best...

Microsoft’s Steve Ballmer recently clarified that Microsoft isn’t just a software company, they are a services and devices company, too. The problem is that Microsoft has put software sales from Office and Windows at the forefront for so long that I don’t know if they really know how to be a services company. I’m...

The rumor mill is buzzing that the Microsoft Surface will be sold at traditional outlet stores early in 2013. The rumor mill states that Best Buy will be part of that equation. No absolute dates though. Stay tuned.

We’ve heard a lot about how important the success of Windows 8 is to the future of Microsoft. You have to wonder though, without much real competition in the desktop world, can it actually fail? Even if it was an unstable and worthless repeat of Vista would it change anything? Would everyone throw Windows out the door...

Windows 8 hardware announcements have started to unveil a pretty clear picture, at least in my mind. We’ve seen laptop/tablet hybrids, touch laptops, touch all-in-ones and even massive tablets that 20-inches in size and can also turn in to an all-in-one. How many memorable desktop towers have you seen? None, right? If...

So for the record, I believe I was the first person to call this. On June 26th of this year, I wrote an article entitled “Yes OEMs, with their Microsoft Surface tablet, Microsoft really did just go to war with you” I quote from said article: I think that for Microsoft, the Surface is the just beginning of the big push...

Yesterday I spoke a little about the survey that allegedly claims most users prefer Windows 7 over Windows 8- even though most of these users haven’t even used Microsoft’s upcoming operating system. Today new drama is being spread, it seems that Windows 8 currently has just .33% of users running the new OS. At this same...

So obviously since Windows 8 is done, you would expect the Windows 8 project team to be in Hawaii getting a well deserved break. Well, they aren’t. They’re hard at work on the next version of Windows – we’ll say it’s Windows 9 for now. In addition though, it seems that they are working on a mysterious add on to Windows 8...
