thIMHO it has been a boring month or so for computer related news.

Why Would Anyone Be Using This Anyway?
I ignored the news of it’s death and calls for uninstall because I thought everyone knew that QuickTime (which was never quick) was a steaming pile?

Windows Phone To Android
Mary Jo Foley details her journey. I never trusted Microsoft in the phone department nor wanted Windows on my phone. Don’t know why exactly.
Many Microsoft employees no longer use Windows Phones (and not just in the name of “research”). If few Softies believe in the platform, why should the rest of us?

[H]ard Case
Steve over at [H]ardOCP takes a look at a $330 PC case. I felt bad for dropping a buck ninety on my case.
If you want to build the biggest baddest system around, the Thermaltake Core W100 would be an awesome foundation for that build.

thSorry for the lack of posting. It isn’t that I’ve been busier than usual it’s just that I haven’t seen much that I was interested in out there.
Lately many of the Windows type sites I frequent seem to be bashing Linux more than usual. Keep underestimating it guys, it worked so well with Apple/iOS.
Windows 10 now has a Roadmap. Not seeing much I’m excited about.
Some versions of Microsoft Office will now be updated the 1st Tuesday of the month instead of the 2nd (Patch Tuesday).

Off Topic / Sports
My Philly Flyers made the playoffs. Now they have the task of playing, IMHO, the best team in hockey. I hope they don’t get swept. I’ve never had the chance to see the Washington Caps play and I would really like to see Ovechkin play in person at least once. So, if the timing and finances are right I may try and see a game.
My all-time favorite VCU basketball player was Briante Weber. He plays with hustle, hard work, and grit. He missed the end of his Senior season after blowing out his knee and has spent this year in the NBA D-League. He just got signed by the Miami Heat and will wear #12! Way to go!
Snow, rain, and cold has postponed the Detroit Tigers game. Boy I don’t miss that. I was looking forward to seeing Justin Verlanders 2nd start. Hopefully tomorrow will be a slow day at work.
