How should Microsoft fight Vista criticism? "We're sorry" is a good start

How should Microsoft fight Vista criticism? "We're sorry" is a good start

On this week’s EIC-squared podcastLarry Dignan asked me what I would do to fix Vista’s tarnished brand if I were in charge of Microsoft’s marketing for a day. OK, I’ll take the job, but on two conditions: First, I want face time with Steve Ballmer and Steven Sinofsky. Second, I want some of those dollars Steve was going to fork over to buy Yahoo, because cleaning up the Vista mess is gonna cost some bucks. Oh, and someone's going to have to say, "We're sorry."

Moving house: diary of a dial-up user (part 1)

Here at ZDNet, we all get on (most of the time) and I'm lucky to be working with some absolutely lovely people. Behind the scenes, we have a discussion group, and I've been bitching about my lack of Internet the last week or so.

Hey Apple, where are the free trials for iPhone applications?

Hey Apple, where are the free trials for iPhone applications?

I know a few of us here on ZDNet are hard at work on iPhone 3G and iPhone application articles and one aspect of the new Apple iPhone Application store that struck me immediately was that there are no trial versions of the commercial software. One of the major benefits for me that gets me using and eventually buying mobile software applications is the ability to try a full, or even limited, version for 14 to 30 days on my devices to see if the application truly fits my needs and is worth the cost. There are NO trial applications that I can find on the iPhone Application store.

Fedora, Slackware, Debian... and Philosophy

I have been quiet about Linux this week because I have been busy trying several new versions. In the process, I have learned quite a bit more, and started to think about the philosophy behind Linux, operating system choices, and Free / Open Source software in general.
