Android tablets for sale at the grocery store. Sure they're top quality.

Blessed, blessed day. How could it have possibly taken so long?

Microsoft has long suffered from fragmentation, with a few different products (IE being the most conspicuous). It's true with Windows, though, too—lots of companies are still supporting XP (which still works fine, admittedly). With Vista having been so universally panned, there seems to be little motivation for everyone to move to Windows 7, and thus the fragmentation rears its ugly head again.

It's less of a big deal in OS's than in browsers, as the OS ecosystem has been stable for years. Microsoft doesn't have the luxury that Apple does in OS pricing, however—Apple can charge almost nothing ($30!) for a new version of OS X because they're already making money on the hardware. Microsoft didn't sell you the PC you're typing on, so they need to make a few bucks on Windows installations.

I asked someone on the Windows team at Microsoft recently if they would consider upgrading everyone on XP to Windows 7 for free. He laughed. Too bad...

The question that gets asked about technology, the one that is almost always precisely the wrong question is, "How does this advance help our business?"

The correct question is, "how does this advance undermine our business model and require us/enable us to build a new one?"

Is anybody an Outlook expert? As of the daylight savings time change, roughly 25% of my meetings are an hour off (I'm in Arizona, where we don't do DST). All the time zone settings appear to be correct on my machine, in Outlook, and on the meetings themselves. Anybody have any idea what could have caused this?

My first job, when I was 15, included posting on Usenet to promote a travel agency. Things have come a long way, and so have I.

Two weeks from today I start my new gig at Amazon! I'l be over the social media and content strategy for Amazon Webstore, their e-commerce platform. It includes moving my family up to Amazon HQ in Seattle, which I'm also excited about.

It's bittersweet in that it means leaving +Sitewire, which is an amazing place full of ridiculously smart people. I'm pretty sure I got a lot more from them than they ever did from me.

Who's doing 2-step authentication in Google? Is it a huge hassle, or is it not a big deal?

Not bad at all. You only have to re-verify every 30 days. I think the added security is definitely worth the extra step, once in a while.

I won't actually be at the game, but I imagine I'll still hear it 50-60 times on Saturday. Even if I don't watch the game, somehow.
