Have Film-Video Game Tie-Ins Ever Worked?

Filed under: Main — admin @ 12:01 am

Windows 8 Has Come to This

Filed under: News — admin @ 8:19 am

Microsoft is now giving away copies of Windows 8.

Don’t worry about standing in line any time soon: Copies are being given away only to hardware manufacturers. Specifically, manufacturers of mobile devices. Microsoft is eager to get a chunk of that market and they figure giving away their operating system is the best way.

My prediction: This will succeed.

Zillions of low-end phone and tablet manufacturers will flood the market with cheap-o Windows 8 mobile devices. That may not make Windows 8 any more popular, although it the action fails, I can proudly say, “Windows 8: They couldn’t even give it away.”

Google is World’s #1 Brand

Filed under: News — admin @ 6:42 am

According to a Wall Street research firm, Google is now the world’s number one brand, ousting Apple.

It makes sense.

Consider many of the innovations brought by Google — and not just the search engine, Android OS, and online collaboration tools. I mean, Google has self-driving cars. That that, Apple!

Windows Messed-Up Libraries

Filed under: Main — Tags: , — admin @ 12:01 am

Here’s an over-used computer term: Library. You can have a programming library, a library of common routines, a library of media files, or even a location that charges late fees when you borrow books. That’s not what most people refer to when they think of Windows and libraries.

May These Phones Rest in Peace

Filed under: Main — Tags: — admin @ 12:01 am

A new era dawns. Mourn with me the flip phones, once ubiquitous and, nay, a sign of status. And while you’re at it, mourn with me phones with a physical keyboard. They be gone as well.
