    Biggest difference between BUILD and WWDC is that the latter will actually result in app development.

    That awesome reset feature that is coming to Windows 10 (Interne Recovery)... the company that Paul likes to talk badly about, you know the company that does not know how to make software, had offered such ability to their users since 2011 or so even with their lack of focus. I guess MS finally figured out how to make it happen in Windows ... 5 years later.


    Awesome.


    PS: I would find it silly if that is the reason why Apple decided to announce the WWDC this month, but I find it hard to believe. There is some info missing still sustaining such decision. Who knows. If I could, I would go to both conferences. If I had to decide ... I would go to Build because of Azure. As far as I'm concerned, Windows can very well disappear and have other take its place.

    On the new Paul article about the Ads of iPad Pro using Word to show it can be a productivity tool too.


    If this event is taken out of the normal practice of the Industry it may well be FUD for the minds of Windows enthusiasts.


    For instance it has become quite normal for Apple devices to be on demo stages during big Microsoft events. In fact it is quite normal for a company to use third party examples to promote its platform. Microsoft does this quite frequentely across the board. Apple always done this as well as others.


    Its not a sign of weakness but one of maturity IMHO. Its not about legitimizing because the concept and t he product is totally legit and have some good points to its favor, there nothing ilegal about it. Its about showing what it can do in context!!!!!! That is what Apple Ads always did, unlike for instance some silly Microsoft Ads about Surface.

    There is nothing particularly interesting about this, don't get lost. May the most efficient vision for the future of tech win.

    The smudging Paul mentioned in his streaming game may be caused by the differences in resolution from his TV that the Xbox is hooked up to and his monitor. I noticed this with my setup, since the TV is 720P and my monitor's resolution is 1050 vertical.
