Windows 10 S & Surface Laptop

Microsoft May Event had a strong emphasis on Education and all the ways Microsoft was working to improve technology in the classroom by providing schools with inexpensive, secure tools that empower schools, teachers, and students to do more. Primary Focus was on Windows 10 S And S stands for School edition? Secure edition? Store edition? Something for people to be confused and argue about edition? Try all of the above, because there's definitely some confusion out there about what this...

Windows Mobile: Pandemonium! The Sky Is Falling!

Ep 84 is the one where we speculate, as wildly as humanly possible with no basis in reality, whether or not there's a future for Windows 10 Mobile after being announced that it was being tossed out an airlock into the cold, dark, vastness of space... or something like that. Pandemonium! The Sky Is Falling! But first, we start off with a public service announce as the tip of the week, discuss some candid feedback about Skype Universal's SMS Relay, and if we can't keep Windows 10 Mobile,...

76 - Disenchantment

Admittedly, we often take a more positive view of Microsoft than perhaps the average consumer may. This episode is an exception. David has had about enough of Microsoft lately, so we asked Adam Doud to join us so that we can properly criticize the company, and especially, Windows 10 Mobile. True to form, Adam has to remind us how webOS has paved the way for everything that is good about the current reigning mobile platforms. Also, the Cubs game was a good distraction during the show....


75 - Understanding Microsoft's Financials

Too often, technology enthusiasts do not fully understand the financial choices made by the companies they value.
