  • Blog Post: Microsoft Pivot: Navigating the web, as a web

    I saw Gary Flake give the first public demo of Pivot back at the PDC in November 2009 and I was wowed.

His first demo of mortality data is a new one on me and does...

  • Blog Post: Behind the Scenes of Microsoft’s Laptop Hunters ads

  • Blog Post: The shallow war of wallpapers

    I don’t get all this kerfuffle around wallpapers in Windows 7 vs. Snow Leopard. Both have great wallpapers and given it’s art, it’s unlikely that you’re going to like all of the wallpapers in either OS. Personally, I don’t like the characters wallpapers (below) in Windows 7 but I’m sure kids love them...

    I had a look at MakeOfficeBetter.com over the weekend and was actually a little surprised to see it go live today – basically a crowd sourcing site along the lines of Dell’s Ideastorm to solicit feedback on Microsoft Office.

  • Blog Post: Zune HD hands-on

      (Credit: Donald Bell/CNET Networks) The Zune HD must be getting close now with such a thorough hands on review from by Donald Bell at C|Net .
