One of the disadvantages to buying an Apple system is that it generally means less upgradeability and flexibility than a system from a traditional PC OEM. Over the last few years, Apple has introduced features and adopted standards that made upgrading or using third-party hardware progressively more difficult. Now... Read more...
Microsoft's been changing quite a bit - for the better - since Satya Nadella stepped in as company CEO, and I don't think that's a coincidence. In the latest major move, the company has announced that it will soon be open sourcing its .NET Core stack, which includes everything from ASP .NET 5 down to the Core runtime and Framework. Once completed,... Read more...
When people think about Internet security, they still think of the various bugs, flaws, and malware that pervade the online world as a Windows problem. Macs have long enjoyed special status thanks to limited market share, while smartphones aren't generally considered to be an attack vector, no matter which OS you... Read more...
Are you in the market for a seriously powerful graphics card? Are you at least a little bit intrigued if I said you could buy one and get a free PC along with it?

It might not be too surprising given what we've seen from previous major releases of Skype, but thanks to the release of 7 for Mac, and the beta of 7 for Windows, we can see that the tradition holds.

As someone who's been using Windows 8 since its Preview release, I admit that I am not finding Windows 10 to be as impressive as someone who might have skipped over 8 entirely. To me, Windows 10 feels like Windows 8, and in many cases looks like it, too. Of course there's the new Start Menu, but that's not something... Read more...
With a little help from Ashton Kutcher today, Lenovo rolled out an array of new Yoga tablets and ultrabooks.

At the risk of getting people's hopes up, the web is quickly filling with reports that Microsoft is planning to offer Windows 9 (codenamed Threshold) as a free upgrade for Windows 8 users. The original source of the rumor comes from an Indonesian-language website quoting Andreas Diantor, President of Microsoft... Read more...
It feels like just yesterday that we were investigating the ins and outs of Windows 8, and already, enough time has passed that a new version of Microsoft's flagship desktop/laptop operating system is imminent. Windows 9, code-named Threshold, may end up dropping the number on its end altogether. At this point, Windows itself is a pretty powerful... Read more...
Yesterday, Apple rolled out the iCloud for Windows update giving Windows users access to iCloud Drive. While the update also rolled out for iOS 8, Mac users will have to wait since OS X doesn’t support iCloud Drive yet. At least, not until OS X Yosemite rolls out later this fall. Meanwhile, Windows users who own an iPhone can take advantage... Read more...
There's been a great deal of Windows 9-related news this past week, but now, we have what's sure to be the most interesting: September 30th will be when we get our first real preview of what's coming.

Mobile Bluetooth keyboards are a dime a dozen, but mobile Bluetooth keyboards that come from Microsoft and support Android, iOS, as well as Windows, are far less common.

Of all the things that Windows 8 brought to the table, it's the much-maligned Start Screen that seems to get most of the attention. That's unfortunate, because there were many other aspects of the OS that made it a major release. Take for example the fact that it was the first version of Windows to include an app... Read more...
Right on schedule, Microsoft rolled-out an onslaught of patches for its "Patch Tuesday" last week, and despite the fact that it wasn't the true "Update 2" for Windows 8.1 many of us were hoping for, updates are generally worth snatching up. In fact, I went ahead and encouraged everyone to waste no time in updating... Read more...
During an "Ask Me Anything" chat session at Reddit yesterday, Internet Explorer's developers took to answering a bunch of questions from their adoring fans.

When we reported on the potential incentives Microsoft could be bringing with Windows 9 earlier this month, we talked about Windows 8.1's "Update 2" being a little thinner than was originally planned. As Microsoft has finally rolled that update out this week, we can see that's just the case. To some, the update might... Read more...
Apple's Siri virtual assistant has been a well-used iOS feature since its introduction in 2011, and it's seemed inevitable that at some point, the company would port it (ahem - her) on over to Mac OS X.

Where mobile devices are concerned, thin is in - something that applies just as well to our notebooks as it does our smartphones. If we're a bit more specific and are talking about gaming notebooks, thin is a word very rarely associated. While Razer has done a great job with its ultra-thin gaming notebooks, most... Read more...
We've talked a lot about Microsoft's renewed focus and vision in recent months, and as I see it, the company's move to place Satya Nadella as its latest CEO is already resulting in some great changes. This couldn't be more true on the Windows side of things - it's clear as day that Satya wants to make sure Windows 9 doesn't follow in the footsteps... Read more...
