  • On Expectations, PDC, Silverlight, and HTML 5

    There has been a lot of commentary over the last few days about the PDC-Silverlight-HTML5 debacle , whether it is dead or not, etc. I posted to Twitter yesterday that I had an epiphany about why the strategy was what it was. But in talking to some of my colleagues in the Silverlight world, I was able...

  • A Little Trip Through the Wayback Machine

    I was doing some ego surfing this morning, when I came across a reference to my company ( Interscape Technologies ) in an unusual place: a PDF file . Curious, I clicked the link… and what I found totally caught me by surprise. Apparently, two professors from the Catholic University in Eichstätt-Ingolstadt...

  • Post-CEDIA, Deafening Silence on WMC TV Pack Speaks Volumes

    CEDIA has come and gone, and while Microsoft has put out a press release talking about all of the new Windows Media Center HTPCs coming out , I have not heard Word One about the WMC TV Pack . Not a feature list, nothing. But, since the last communication I had from Microsoft is that my NDA expired three...

  • Announcing AMD Unprocessed!

    I know I haven't been posting as much lately, and for that I apologize. As of late, I have been distracted with a project that I haven't been able to talk about.

  • What?!? Microsoft Doesn't Foster Community?

    I'm a huge fan of Mary Jo Foley, but I can't help but feel that her latest article is a huge slap in the face . Murdock noted that while Solaris has a lot of features its users consider cool and exciting, its developer community is much smaller and less vested in Solaris than is the Linux community is...

  • AMD & Vista: The First 100 Days

    Several weeks ago, I posted a letter from AMD Executive VP Henri Richard (pronounced En-re Ri-shard) to the employees at AMD, regarding their internal adoption of Windows Vista. Today, he gave bloggers an exclusive video conference call about said adoption, and other AMD-related topics. Ironically, today...

  • WGA and SPP: Normal People Don't Care

    Joe Wilcox has a long and interesting post about Windows juxtaposed against the offerings of Web 2.0 companies, in respect to Microsoft's recently announced Software Protection Platform. He thinks that Web 2.0 companies have the better business model. Web 2.0 business models are great, but I don't...

  • Microsoft Compromises on Black Titlebars

    One of Microsoft's most hated UI decisions for Windows Vista was the decision to black-out the titlebar when a window is maximized. Well, rejoice, for the UI team has listened... and offers a compromise . In Vista, we are really trying to reduce the amount of high contrast visual noise in the UI...
