you were supposed to wear it under the wrist. The recommendations from Microsoft always said to wear it that way. Which was one of my peeves when tech bloggers (everywhere, including Gizmodo) would write about the awkwardness of the band, when they were wearing it wrong... If you wore it the way Microsoft intended, it Read more

I think in the grand scheme of things, Microsoft got it right initially with going the fitness route instead of smartwatch route. They definitely could have improved their offering beyond the Band 2's plague problems of ripping straps and battery ailments, but otherwise, the band 2 was a beautiful device that worked Read more

Why is it that I expect some sort of HUD (Heads Up Display) on these glasses with all the pertinent info for your run (GPS/Map, Distance, Pace, Heart Rate, Time, etc...)? Also, why aren’t these things included for $1,200?

I think what the government may be asking for is a bit over-reaching, but I think that Apple should come up with a solution to crack their encryption, keep the encryption cracking in house (and top-secret like so many other things apple does), then on a case-by-case basis, unlock the phones as needed Read more

I just bought a Surface 3. I don’t really think Windows 10 is butt ugly. I feel like the butt ugly phase was more of the Windows 98/2000. XP was marginally better, default color pallet was a little playskoolish. Then Vista came with a nice sleek look, but ran like crap. 7 Fixed the crap running side of Vista and Read more

just going all natural products... Fruits, veggies, some egg, some fish, and water to drink... That pretty much sums it up.

If anyone can do it, MS has probably the best shot... Between their partner agreement with Apple and the vast amount of resources in their engineering team, one would hope that they can make a fly keyboard.

I’ve been paying for starbucks from my Microsoft Band since it came out last december... Its neat, but not buying a smartwatch neat (fortunately I use the fitness aspects enough to make it worth the price).

Bill Gates has been a role model of mine for awhile. I believe whole-heartedly that he would make a fantastic president. But its been said in the comments already, he’s way too smart to be a president, and he’s doing much more good as a private citizen. Read more
