  • If Google Docs is good enough, and you need compatibility with Office, there is always the free online versions of Word, Excel and Powerpoint.
  • You could even read a little deeper into that crap ZDnet article you linked to. From your article: If you do use Cortana, you'll be sharing your keystrokes and voice with Microsoft. Sounds bad. How ...
  • Your use of the word "plan" seems to imply some sort of malice or subterfuge or deceit.  Instead, this is simply the state of the world.  Any time you buy or use something you are, in effect, ...
  • Strangely enough, it apparently does NOT support HTML import right now. It would also seem that Edge's ability to detect Firefox bookmarks is on the fritz for many. If you really care to move over ...
  • Chip/PIN capable, yes, but unfortunately the US is only moving towards a Chip and SIGN system, which is still quite insecure and outdated.
  • Yeah? I didn't see a single mention of that fact in the entire article. I do, however, see quixotic statements like this: "Even as Windows 10 rolls out next week (unfinished, but there's a deadline ...
  • What an odd (and rather rambling) article.  Windows 10 for phones isn't scheduled to be officially released for at least 3 more months, but he's reviewing it as if it's a finished product.
  • Of course, but you all seem to act like it's some sort of forced thing that is thrust upon you like multiple times per week, and has to happen at the most inconvenient of times. I have today's ...
  • It would seem that Google hasn't owned Sketchup for about 3 years now. Interesting looking program though.  I'll add it to the list of things to play around with (and likely leave half finished). A ...
  • I do marvel at how you folks use your computers.  I reboot maybe once per week, usually less, and never twice in a row.  The only time this isn't true is when I'm getting a new install up to date, ...
  • This has been my experience as well.  Google is especially good at interpreting pure stream of consciousness type inputs and actually spitting out a coherent answer.
  • Good luck with that.  I hope for your sake that bank doesn't make you use a website.  Who knows what sort of trouble Windows Update might get you into then!
  • I suppose you are correct that this button is opaque: I mean, you can't even see through it. You are nothing but words on a screen and your efforts, fumbling or not, make me feel nothing.  That ...
  • If you don't want help, it might be best to avoid hyperbole such as "not very straight forward" or "no quick option" when referring to a simple drop down menu or a button in the settings page, or ...
  • If you're in that deep with Google, I can certainly see the advantage of using Chrome, but that doesn't really explain the perceived differences between Google and Bing.  As search engines they ...
  • I'm always curious about why people feel this way.  What exactly can you find via Google that you cannot via Bing?  Certainly both have their relative strengths and weaknesses, but overall, I find ...
  • Successful updates don't make the news, or really garner any comment at all. If we do the same thing for airplanes you might get the idea that those things are just falling out of the sky at an ...
  • I'm not exactly sure why you think making a program more accessible to users is a spurious reason for changing an interface. The fable I've always heard regarding the Ribbon was that, while doing ...
  • Fun theory. Pretty sure "the Button" was just this little guy though. That cute little guy in the upper left. It was the main hub for many features that were under the former "File" menu.  It was ...
  • Yes, we will have to define "typical".  I personally will choose to use a less condescending definition than you.  I will define the "typical" user as the vast majority of users. These users only ...
