In my latest Patexia post, I envision a future in which Microsoft actually challenges Apple for tablet superiority.
My article flies in the face of conventional wisdom — not only because it points out that Microsoft has taken on the Big Boys before and [...]
My latest Patexia post combines a number of my favorite things: gaming, PC hardware geekiness, and reusing research from previous clients’ assignments — and most of all, thinking up titles which demonstrate my penchant for second-rate cleverness.
Plus, I get [...]
Just kidding. Canalys didn’t REALLY say that, of course.
But they did say that Apple is now the biggest PC maker, due to iPad sales, which is pretty funny too.
Face it, even the best tablet PC (which the iPad isn’t) does not belong in the same class as even a decent mainstream notebook, [...]
Siri gets big ups on the newly-redesigned Patexia. My criticisms of Apple obviously don’t preclude an appreciation for the company’s achievements. Next up: a withering analysis of how Apple is cynically using children in their quest to dominate e-publishing…
Dragged kicking and screaming into 2011 (just in time for 2012), your humble host finds himself inordinately excited by his new Droid 3.
I wouldn’t call myself a smartphone junkie, by any means — my previous phone was a cheerfully basic Samsung Gravity Lime. For about 3 years, this ‘talk and text’ device served me [...]
When two bipolar people fall in love, what could possibly go wrong?

I’ll be completely honest — I love power supplies. Not just because of what they can do or how they look, but because it gets me away from the marketing and business and other BS ends of tech and into the land of [...]
Mondays are busy. Case in point: Ericsson Gets Aggressive: The New Wireless Landscape | Patexia. Forgive me for altering my professional voice to say that something “kinda, well, sucked”, and for quoting a press release that used the word “synergies”.
Or maybe less. However you look at it, motherboard reviews are joining the long list of long lists that Bestcovery has allowed me to write.
At the time of this writing (oh, how i love that phrase), the Intel-based mobos are published, and the lists on the AMD side are either published or [...]
I’ve tacked CPUs for my latest batch of Bestcovery reviews. The Zambezi rollout came just in time, although plenty of Phenom II processors still managed to make the list. Oh, and no surprise that the Sandy Bridge processors are well represented — the 2600k is still the one to beat for now.
