  • Managing Windows 8 doesn't differ much from managing Windows 7, at least not in ways that matter

    Most people, myself included, are happy to take the wait-and-see approach to Windows 8. This is partly because we're now only fifteen months away from the end of Windows XP, knee-deep in Windows 7 rollouts, and partly because of lack of inspiration. The...

  • Many claim Apple's 128GB iPad is a threat to Microsoft Surface. Is this true?

    Yesterday Apple announced that they'll release a 128GB version of the iPad. (This is not a next generation iPad, rather, it's the same one they're currently selling with an option for 128GB.) Many are claiming this is something that Apple is doing specifically...

  • Dell has four different mobile device management (MDM) products. What’s their strategy here?

  • The future of Windows desktop apps: they'll just be emulated on an iPad as normal iOS apps.

    Last week I wrote an article wondering whether x86-based tablets running "real" Windows will ever be as thin, light, and long-lasting as ARM-based tablets like iPads and Androids, because based on a quick glance of the current x86 tablets, they're either...

  • App-V versus ThinApp? That's an unfair question to me.

    After my video comparing App-V 4 and 5 went up on, I was asked the following question on twitter: Do you think new App-v could be better than ThinApp?" In part, I tweeted back that is was an unfair question to ask me. Perhaps I should...

  • Can Intel-based Windows 8 Pro tablets ever come close to the low power and long batteries of ARM-based devices?

    Earlier this week I wrote an article (well, a rant) about Microsoft Surface tablets running Windows RT. (Actually it was a rant against Windows RT in general.) I closed the rant by saying, "By the way, I'm looking forward to the Surface Pro and the other...
