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 [...]
In my latest Patexia post, Buying and Selling Your Personal Data | Patexia.com, I make the unusual (for me, anyway) observation that it doesn’t matter that advertisers are getting our personal info. And / or that there will come a time when our privacy is eroded so much that personal data is ubiquitous, and [...]
