When you reach a problem that you cannot fix no matter how much time or money you spend on it - the solution is simple: Go back to basics

Over the last week I have been on a whirlwind trip around Europe - roughly seven countries in seven days. There has been a lack of updates lately as a result.

So the big news, at least according to some, is that Michael Dell took the helm again at Dell. This certainly didn't come as a surprise to me, as I'm sure many others expected it. Though Dell himself stated Kevin Rollins was doing a great job, I think the article I wrote here has an interesting perspective. It seems to me that this announcement was a reactionary announcement rather than a proactive move, which could have happened much sooner. Either way I wish him well in his "new" job, better late than never I suppose.

That leads me to the next story which I wrote for CPU Magazine. It’s about Microsoft – a company that I love and appreciate.

Love them or hate them, almost everyone uses them. I believe when a company gets too large they tend to forget what got them there in the first place.  I think Microsoft would benefit immensely if they took the time to stop and go back to their core DNA - what made them successful to begin with.  This is the article:
Over the last few years, gamers have been waiting patiently for Microsoft to launch Windows Vista. Like many of you I have tested various versions along the way, each time reinstalling Windows XP shortly after for one reason or another.

Delay after delay, I had always come to the defense of Microsoft when people challenged the future of Vista because I believed that it would be the ultimate entertainment...

Constructive Criticism

Please take this entirely as friendly, constructive criticism. I think more people would be interested in your blog entries if:

1. You posted the entire blog entry here, rather than having a "teaser" here that links to your personal/company blog; and

2. Your blog posts here were not so self-promoting. Each time I read them I think, oh here he goes again promoting himself or his company. (Although, to be fair, this one was not so much like that, as others have been in the past.)

Just my thoughts. I might be right, or I might be wrong.

I wholeheartedly agree. I think you have a lot of good things to say, but linking to your other blog is not an effective way of expressing an idea.

I know you want to generate traffic to your personal blog but this is the wrong way to do it. And personally I don't think DailyTech should allow this practice at all.

Hi guys, Dailytech doesn't own the content - if they did then I wouldn't do this.

Sorry - but if you want to read it, you can click, if you don't - you don't need to click.
