Is a Negative Comment From Dell a Positive?

June 21, 2012


Fifteen years ago Michael Dell infamously said that Apple should shut down the company and return the money to shareholders. Big mistake. But honestly, at that time most everyone who wasn’t in the cult of Apple would have agreed.

Now, ex-Dell CEO Kevin Rollins says no one wants a Microsoft tablet as they are happy with Android and Apple.

Surface Tablet: Microsoft's Desktop Hail Mary

June 19, 2012

If you are Steve Ballmer, going to the mall and walking by an Apple Store loaded with people buying tablets, music players and phones which don’t run his software has to be as pleasurable as preparing for a colonoscopy.

Analysts: Windows 8 Confusing to use

June 7, 2012

In the late nineties I was fortunate enough to meet tech veteran John Dvorak and a while later he was good enough to be a keynote speaker for a TMC event CTI Expo in San Jose. In case you aren’t aware I was the conference chairman of the show and ITEXPO spun out of this event a few years later. John was a compelling speaker, passionate and much of his content revolved around problems at Microsoft. The audience ate it up. Of course Microsoft execs were in the audience so there was some awkwardness between me and them when the keynote concluded.

Seven Online Community Best Practices

June 5, 2012

There are so many different types of online communities and ways of building them. There are social sharing sites such as Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter. There are standalone sites and even hosted  third party portals which you can build in conjunction with other companies.
