Microsoft held a big press event Monday evening to unveil their next big product – a tablet PC they call Microsoft Surface1. It’s a big gamble for them, but, it’s one they badly need to take in order to stay relevant. Also, Surface looks, really, really nice.
My Impressions on Windows 7
I’ve been using a Lenovo ThinkPad T61 Widescreen as my primary work computer for going on 2.5 years, and I’ve been very happy with it. It’s no Macbook Pro, but it’s about as good as it gets for a non-Apple laptop: Fast, well-built, reliable, good technical support, and has a great keyboard. But in that […]
Quick – What do you think of Windows Vista? Next question – Have you ever used Windows Vista?

Mac OS X Migration
Friday was my first full day of working on my Apple PowerMac G4 at the office, and I have to say that I didn’t miss Windows XP much at all. I installed Mac OS 10.3 (Panther) last week, and I’m very happy with it. Expose is addicting, especially with the way I work (with 10+ […]
