    I've never seen that before in my life. I have 3 copies of windows 8. Details on what you bought where?

    Microsoft Surface

    I think Surface is a great name, so I can totally understand why they wanted to use it for both but they need to be more explicit about which does what. I think that they are being deliberately vague about the fact that the RT doesn't run x86 code and that's not helping them. Even with a...

    Things That Are Bothering You, Got You All Hibbeldy-Jibbeldy, or just downright pissed, RIGHT NOW!

    come home today and there's a page long note stuck to my door about my sister's dog crying all day and how that constitutes animal cruelty and that it's inconsiderate towards my neighbors. I'm not sure that I believe the note because the dog is super well-behaved. It might bark once or twice...

    Microsoft Surface

     No, Runtime. It's basically an API. All of the new Metro-styled apps must use it. So yeah, it's a stupid name for a consumer OS.

    Microsoft Surface

     People get lazy in blog posts and have been calling it the Surface RT, but they're actually called Surface with Windows RT and Surface with Windows Pro. Do you think that's a clear enough distinction? I suppose I'm not a regular consumer, but can probably can guess at what Windows 8 is but...

    Microsoft Surface

     I said it's they're too heavy for one-handed use for extended periods of time. Most people aren't using tablets one-handed and suspended in the air for 45 minutes though. I think that most use it in bed, on the couch, at a conference table, in their lap, etc. Most of the time, the bulk of...

    Microsoft Surface

     Control and security mostly. It runs windows 8 pro so you can join tham to an Active Directory domain and tightly control what can/can't be done on it, keep it updated and secure, implement network access control policies, etc. It ties in with all the management capabilities of the MS...

    Microsoft Surface

     I honestly don't know how well this will do with consumers. I could honestly see myself using it as a laptop replacement and if it's good enough as a tablet I don't need a second device. Do I really want to purchase both an ultrabook AND a tablet? I suspect a lot of people see the appeal of...

    Skyfall 007 2012 (Teaser trailer out)

    the new Q is horrible. Seriously, why'd they have to stick a bloody hipster with perfectly coiffed messy hair into a bond film? The dialog between Craig and Moneypenny was also pretty bad. That's what annoyed me most about the movie. Bardem was good, but like others said, too little, too late...

    New Nokia Lumia - I want

    Not exactly my cup of tea, but it's amazing that this was shot handheld with a Lumia 920.

    Microsoft Surface

     I suspect most people will really like office 2013 because it puts skydrive front and center and most have gotten over ribbon changes by now. Skydrive is now the default location to save documents to. Tech savvy people might have been aware of dropbox/skydrive and other such things, but for...

    Microsoft Surface

    It seems Windows 8 isn't a huge failure after all. It's already sold 40 million copies. That's 40 million IN ONE MONTH. Yes, a big chunk of those are OEM and volume licensing and they have the $40 upgrade deal, but it is still outpacing windows 7 upgrades at the same point in its life. It's...

    New Nokia Lumia - I want

     VPN support! Awesome. Wish I didn't have to wait until the end of Feb though.. Still... As the only thing that's missing that really bugs me, it's nice to hear something about it.

    Microsoft Surface

     No, it won't lose any of the business user base over this because they don't buy software the way you do. When businesses buy volume licenses, they get downgrade rights, which means that when they buy new windows 8 volume licenses, they can use those same licenses to go ahead and install...

    What do you mean by "virtual desktops"? If you mean the Linux type of thing were you have several desktops screens that you can switch between (like on an iphone) then no. If you mean the ability to run virtual machines, yes. It comes with the same hypervisor that Windows Server now comes with...

    Microsoft Surface

    i think the MS tutorial was a little too basic, especially for people upgrading with non-touch hardware or without dedicated win8 keys. A couple of hotkeys are useful so you don't have to move your mouse to the corners. Bring up charms menu: Start+c desktop: start+d windows tools menu (easy...

    Microsoft Surface

     Except you can go to the desktop and choose to never leave it, and then it's basically windows 7 with improvements, some quite major ones like the included hyper-v virtualization. Yes, it does require changing the way you do things a bit, but if you bother to learn instead of just posting...
