Re the upcoming Windows 8 Start button.. “The experience doesn’t replicate the Windows 7 Start button and menu, but it’s an improvement over Windows 8, Silver said.” Any improvement is welcome………….  I think.. "The Start button will not bring you a vertical list of applications and commands" like the one in Windows 7, he said. […]

Windows 8.1..

Old posts  Tagged , No Comments »

I am sitting outside on my balcony in the South West Ontario sun, shaded by a large sun shade over a smoked glass table, my machine is a three year old Toshiba Netbook running Windows 7 Home Premium in 2gb of RAM. It doesn’t have the rather annoying multi-lingual keyboard that comes as standard. I […]

Where is the evidence?

Old posts  Tagged , No Comments »

I was in my local Apple Store yesterday. My five year old grand-daughter likes to play on the iPads, having learned from one of her friends who has one, and the staff there don’t seem to mind. So, I decided to look to see what an iPad/iPad mini could do, and headed for the business […]

How to forward mail (or do anything) in

Old posts  Tagged , No Comments »

The Hotmail interface has changed, and this is what you see when you first open it. Yes, it has the new Windows 8 look, but all of the tools are still there. Note the almost complete lack of tools across the top. Oh my, how could Microsoft do this to us. There are no tools […]

Windows Blue.. more FUD?

Old posts  Tagged , No Comments »

Windows Blue, leaked version build 9364, still has no proper desktop start menu, but other features have appeared.

Dear Sir or Madam, This is an open letter to everyone and anyone involved with Windows 8. Don’t let the critics get you down. You’ve done good work and it should be rewarded. Immediately ask for a salary raise of 10 to 20 percent. You deserve it! Windows 8 is the future, let there be […]

Rumours or Real?

Windows Blue.. The story so far… PC sales.. No, it is not the fault of Windows 8. It is because there is a shift to tablet forms which would explain why Microsoft Surface and Surface RTs are not doing so well either. Let’s make a deal. ‘High price + confusing interface = poor sales’ […]

On the case..

Old posts  Tagged , No Comments »

The new Coolermaster CM690 II Advanced case has now been in service for thirty five days. In that time, it has not displayed any of the annoying characteristics of it’s predecessor. Windows has not shutdown once and everything is working. I still dare not set up any Windows 8 apps because I have no desire […]

Where did all of the Netbooks go?

Old posts  Tagged , No Comments »

I have found out where. The manufacturers took the keyboards off and called them tablets, everybody except for Acer, that is. A quick look at a Netbook gone by.. This is a Toshiba NB250, one of the better netbooks of the day. It is powered by the Intel Atom N455, runs Windows 7 Starter (32-bit) […]
