    Microsoft made me excited about a Microsoft product again. Cortana was really the last time that happened, and I’m happy to report that my excitement was well-founded in that case. But this year, Microsoft introduced Windows Holographic, an augmented reality self contained headset that has a ton of potential in many ...

    …and that’s not entirely Microsoft’s fault. After watching the Microsoft Windows 10 event I decided to give Windows Phone another shot, for a week. It was either that, or because I missed using the platform; it could have also been because I wanted to see what’s new in Windows Phone 8.1, or that getting an Xbox ...

    Microsoft Surface Hub promises to be a "powerful team collaboration device designed to advance the way people work together naturally" and to "unlock the power of the group".

    Microsoft hasn't found the amount of success it wanted to see in mobile. Windows Phone is still just 3% of the mobile market, and even with its moves in acquiring Nokia's mobile division, the company is still struggling to re-invent itself internally. You could assume that Microsoft's interests in Android are low, given ...

    One of the unavoidable pitfalls of covering a field as vast as mobile technology is that sometimes, you get things wrong. It happens regardless of preparation, regardless of time spent with a device, and no matter how many colleagues help copy-edit your work. But it happens most often when you establish an opinion ...

    Microsoft had some big announcements last week. Announcements that left your head spinning, once you took Marty McFly Jr’s headset off that is. Microsoft even let the phones get into the picture, which was pretty cool. But it left me wondering if Microsoft shared any truly compelling reasons for people to come to the ...
