Just days after Google launched its Google+ social project, Facebook may be about to rain on its parade.
Internet Explorer remains the dominant Web browser because it comes as the default choice for every PC, but those who actually choose what browser they want rarely go for IE. Microsoft's latest offering may change that mindset.
The typical two year PC upgrade cycle and Microsoft's software roadmap is not going to hold in a Web-centric app-happy world. Does Redmond get it?
After Google’s successful I/O show last week new voices claim it as the new anti-Apple or a new Microsoft.
Why is anyone even bothering to debate this? HTML5 is the right path for the Web. Adobe is, well, just Adobe.
The company that can do no evil has decided to see if it can get a chunk of yet more Internet real estate.
View I am a Googler, but....
Let's start out by saying that hell would likely freeze over before this happened...
Opinion: The already competitive SaaS CRM market is getting more so. At least, that's if my reading of the news coming out of RightNow Technologies Inc. annual customer conference is accurate.
Opinion: Apple was blindsided by Windows 7. It wasn’t the product which they saw coming, it was the sustaining marketing budget and positive reviews from Apple loyalists like Walt Mossberg they didn’t see (though several Mac fans have told me that Steve Jobs has taken Walt to task and he is changing his tune).
Microsoft has launched yet another iteration of its infamous Windows operating system. Fortunately, I have chosen to opt out of the Microsoft universe and am well on my way to becoming a loyal disciple of the venerable Saint Stephen Jobs.
Opinion: This weekend we were treated to two yarns from security experts whose main role appears to be making a living from people's fears. Both reveal a considerable amount about the mindset of the anti-virus market.
Opinion: Analysts are just journalists in sharp suits who only have to write two stories a year for their $250K salaries. And just because you have to pay through the nose to read their words of wisdom doesn’t magically make them any more right than the lowliest trainee hack on Graphics Card Weekly.
Opinion: Our earlier story on how fast or slow Windows 7 boots and shuts down has attracted some critical acclaim and some critical unacclaim from people who obviously didn’t bother to read the story before posting a comment on it.
Opinion: Shock news reaches us from iolo Technologies claiming that Windows 7 takes ages to load. Our response: who gives a rat’s ass, especially as it doesn't...
My first password was to an IBM System 38 MRP application in 1978. It was four characters long. I chose my first name. I could have picked my last name, I suppose, but the system administrator had already used that as my log-in. To the best of knowledge, no one hacked in using my credentials.
Opinion: Most folks kinda like supporting the little guy up against The Man. But when the little guy sticks his shorts over his head, puts pencils up his nose and starts saying ‘wibble’, most normal people turn away in embarrassment.
Opinion On the face of it, it seems like a great idea. Have every
single book in the world digitized so at the click of a button you can
read translations of Plotinus, read Suetonias’ work on the Caesars, or
get over excited over Ovid.
Opinion - You couldn't make this stuff up. The Mozilla Corporation - and never was the word 'corporation' applied to such an undeserving bunch of spineless no-hopers - is now whingeing that Microsoft's Browser ballot screen - exactly what they and their friends in the European Union have been demanding all along - is no longer sufficient.
Opinion – Ok, let’s be realistic. It can’t get much worse for Microsoft
than Windows Vista, which exposed the vulnerability of Microsoft’s most
important product. And it is easy to understand Microsoft’s enthusiasm
for the new Windows 7. But Microsoft almost seems to be too cocky about
its outlook and it may be way too confident about its companion, Office
2010. Will Microsoft screw this one up as well?
