My mobile phone is an HTC P4000 on the Telus Network.  It runs Windows Mobile 6 and does a pretty good job on most everything I need it for.  However, as in many Microsoft products, there are quite a few areas that can be improved and rendered more enjoyable to use.  Not too long ago, Continue Reading

BSOD – Session Manager Initialization fails with status 0xc000026c

A couple days ago I ran into a weird problem on a customer’s computer and I had such a hard time figuring out what it was, I thought I’d add it in my tips section.  From what I’ve been able to gather, the problem occurs mostly with Windows XP SP2, but it could also be Continue Reading

Comparing advertisement budgets from Apple and Microsoft

The very popular (and often funny but not necessarily true) TV ads from Apple mocking Vista have generated a lot of talk. Discussions are usually about the facts that are presented in the commercials, naturally divided between Windows-users and apple-users. The facts in the commercials are sometimes true but also very debatable because they are Continue Reading

Adobe Flex will become Flash Platforms

I’ve been following the development and the evolution of Adobe Flex ever since it first appeared as a beta, but its marketing has always been uncertain.  The way it was referenced and named was sometimes inconsistent and the name itself made it a little difficult to search for in some cases. Adobe Flex will retain Continue Reading
