Come on, Microsoft. You can do better than this. Here's how.
Instead of tricking people into installing Windows 10, Microsoft should be offering them better incentives.

Every $300+ laptop should come standard with 1080p, SSD.
PC sales have crashed because manufacturers offer too little innovation at too much cost. Today's sub-$700 laptop is nearly identical to one from 2012.

Tired of squinting at your screen? You don't need glasses. You just need to change a couple of settings.

From Facebook's new chatbots that allow you to order flowers to Microsoft's always-chatty Cortana helping you book a hotel room, it seems like all the major tech companies want to provide you witty virtual concierges. However, shopping or searching with these AIs is much less efficient than using standard web tools. Even worse, it flips the human-machine relationship on its head.

Tech companies are building more witty bots like Siri and Cortana, but these anthropomorphic programs waste our time and give us a false sense of our own importance.

Some say Chromebooks will replace Windows PCs. I hope not.
If locked-down Chromebooks replace Windows PCs, most people will be left as passive consumers of technology, rather than builders.

EliteBook Folio vs. MacBook: Which super-light laptop is best? http://www.laptopmag.com/articles/apple-macbook-vs-hp-elitebook-folio
The MacBook and EliteBook are both great slim and light laptops with vivid displays, but HP's ultraportable wins this very close contest.

If you're on a Windows 7 or 8 PC, you have until July 29th, 2016 to upgrade. Here's why you need to make the switch right now.

Just a quick note. Tomorrow (May 6th), I will be doing a ThinkPad AMA (ask me anything) on both Reddit and YouTube, along with Lenovo's Kevin Beck. The Reddit, text-based portion will run from 10 am to 5 pm ET at the thread below. The YouTube live stream will go from 1 to 2pm ET. Details are here.

Full HD laptop for under $400!
The Asus VivoBook E403SA combines a premium design, long battery life and a full-HD display for a very affordable price.

This is the VR headset that I would buy.
The HTC Vive delivers an unrivaled virtual-reality experience with crisp graphics, accurate room tracking and intuitive touch-enabled controllers, but you'll need lots of space.

The Precision crew did an extremely thorough inspection on the home my wife and I are buying. Owner Hank Jaworowski sent two different people who gave us a very-detailed report with pictures of everything in less than 24 hours, allowing us to move forward with our home purchase with confidence. Precision also has been great in offering free advice after the inspection was over and giving us a free book on how to deal with contractors. We were very satisfied with the thoroughness and quality of the inspection and the friendly, helpful advice we got from the inspectors. They gave us great peace of mind and I would recommend them to anyone buying a home on Long Island.
