  • iPad 2: The reviews are in

    Apple seeded the usual suspects with its new tablet last week. A sampling of the reviews:

    Walt Mossberg, The Wall Street Journal: I've been testing an iPad 2 for about a week and I like it a lot. While it's evolutionary rather than revolutionary like the first model, the changes Apple has made are generally pleasing and positive, and the device worked very well for me... It never MORE

  • Apple's iPhone 4: The reviews are in

    Mossberg, Pogue and Baig all loved it. With reservations.

    Wednesday's papers will carry the first official reviews of Apple's (AAPL) new iPhone 4. The usual suspects have been playing with the device for the last week or so and they are, for the most part, pleased. A sample of what they had to say:

    The New York Times' David Pogue: New iPhone Arrives, Rivals Beware

    Despite the strong initial, positive MORE

  • Defending Ballmer?

    Lots of reactions to my screed on Steve Ballmer, his tenure at Microsoft (MSFT) and his shocking lack of awareness about the world around him. Most agreed with my perspective. Not all. One fan of Steve's wrote thusly:

    The idea that all these Windows users are just stupid is a huge blind spot for people living in Silicon Valley.  Look, people can complain about Microsoft and Steve. But the MORE

  • Steve Jobs live (sort of) at D8

    Notes from from an Apple watcher stuck on the wrong coast

    Apple's (AAPL) CEO was scheduled to give the 6 p.m. PDT keynote at All Things Digital Tuesday night, but the show is running late and rumor has it that he's been pre-empted, at least temporarily, by Rupert Murdoch. Makes sense. Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher may think this is their show, but Murdoch -- as CEO of the News Corp. MORE

  • Rare Steve Jobs videos now online

    All Things Digital posts interviews with Apple's CEO from 2003 and 2004

    Beyond his keynotes at Apple (AAPL) events, Steve Jobs doesn't make a lot of public appearances. Since 2003, however, he's made an exception for All Things D, the annual invitation-only confab produced by Wall Street Journal veterans Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher.

    He missed D6 (2008) and D7 (2009), but he'll be back June 1 to kick off D8. And MORE

  • Apple's iPad: The reviews are in

    Steve Jobs' handpicked reviewers have tested his latest creation and pronounced it a winner

    The first three reviews of Apple's (AAPL) tablet computer were posted Wednesday night -- each, coincidentally, from newspapers that are developing their own iPad apps.

    The verdicts are strikingly similar, although each writer reaches it by a different path.

    Walt Mossberg, writing for the Wall Street Journal, starts with the assumption that to succeed the iPad must be a MORE

  • Charlie Rose loves the Apple iPad

    The PBS talk show devotes 23 minutes to singing the praises of Steve Jobs' latest creation

    In a segment that aired Thursday night, the Charlie Rose Show invited three A-list tech commentators -- the Wall Street Journal's Walt Mossberg, the New York Times' David Carr and TechCrunch's Michael Arrington -- to gush about (and find a few faults with) Apple's (AAPL) iPad.

    [UPDATE: A YouTube version of the video has become available MORE

  • Video: Steve Jobs in the mosh pit

    Cornered by a reporter, he lets slip a few more details about the iPad

    All Things Digital's Kara Swisher, who carried a digital camcorder to Apple's (AAPL) iPad event for her BoomTown blog, has posted some rare footage of Steve Jobs in the crush of  reporters at the foot of the stage after his presentation Wednesday.

    It's framed as a kind of Walt Mossberg sandwich, with slices of the Wall Street Journal's MORE

  • What's wrong with Windows 7 - update

    Reading between the lines of Walt Mossberg and David Pogue's reviews

    It's a given that Windows 7, scheduled for release Thursday, is an improvement over Vista. But how does it stack up against Apple's (AAPL) Snow Leopard?

    At moments like this we look to the well-compensated deans of tech journalism: The Wall Street Journal's Walt Mossberg and the New York Times' David Pogue.

    The caveats in Mossberg's review were summarized  here two weeks MORE
