  • My Predictions for This Week’s PDC 2011… Oops, I mean Build

    So Build is happening this week, and unfortunately once again I’ll be sitting on the sidelines while all my peeps are having a blast (have a few drinks for me, guys!) But I thought I’d kick off the week with a few of MY expectations for what will be announced in Microsoft-land this week....

  • My Take on the Microsoft–Skype Deal

    The pundits are all weighing in on the deal announced today to buy Skype for $8.5B, so I thought I’d resurrect my blog for a few minutes and offer my opinion as well.

  • Hulu Coming to Vista Media Center?

    Hulu is my favorite video sites on the Internet. Why? Because I can watch almost all of my favorite shows for free, with far less advertising than television. The problem with the site is, if I want to watch it on my Vista Media Center PC, I have to go out of the 10-foot experience, and use my keyboard...
