Just before the release of Snow Leopard, Uncle Walt Mossberg did the unthinkable by writing that the $29 Leopard upgrade: "will work properly on ...Tiger equipped Macs, so you can save the extra $140." We reported that as well but didn't have all the facts verified at the time. Gizmodo likened Wa...

You know you're at the D conference (hosted by Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher of All Things D) when you're chilling in the lobby of the Four Seasons and Woz and his wife peel up on tandem Segways. Yeah, it's going to be that kind of party. We're live on the ground at D7, and you can expect some pr...

It was only a matter of time before the WSJ (Katherine Boehret, in this case) got their hands around Sprint's still-not-official Touch Diamond, and we can't say that the conclusion she drew is at all shocking. As Mossberg and his partners so often do, Katherine mentions Apple's darling just as much ...

It's a given that Mr. Mossberg has a thing for Apple's gear. In his opinion, it's simply a better choice for his mainstream readership. It's also obvious that Sprint and Samsung are intent on besting the capabilities of the first generation iPhone with their new Instinct. Still, we can't help but to...

Walt Mossberg managed to pull a mighty fun quote from Sony CEO Sir Howard Stringer. During an on-stage interview at D6, Stringer said that the PlayStation 3 "was on life support for awhile," a pretty honest statement from the top executive of a multibillion dollar corporation about one of its flags...

You have to smile a bit at the role Walt Mossberg plays in the geekosphere -- he's like the chairman of the Federal Reserve, what with the excitement that his offhand comments can generate.

Turns out PC Mag wasn't the only one fairly impressed by Dell's entry into the all-in-one desktop arena, Unkie Walt is officially a fan, and while he won't be giving up his iMac anytime soon, he had some warm things to say about the computer and Dell's design direction in general. In fact, as far ...

That's right Walt, kick 'em while they're down. The godfather of tech-soul has given Dell's new Vostro lineup of PCs and services for small (25 employees and less) businesses a thorough drubbing this morning. How bad was it?
