Justin

Justin began his writing career many moons ago while sitting at the kitchen table. He had to write his side of the story of a fight he had with his brother. When his mother read it and Justin was let-off, he realized the power of manipulation through the pencil. Since that fateful day, Justin has used his ability to fight left-handed prejudice, record the events of being chased by mountain goats in Alaska, and explain the annoyance of squeaky shoes.

Symantec Shuffles Company Leadership

July 26, 2012 |

Yesterday, Symantec announced that Enrique Salem has stepped down as president and CEO of Symantec. In his stead, the board of directors has appointed Steve Bennett as Symantec’s president and CEO. Reports from Symantec state that the change wasn’t due to any single event or problem but instead from a long and considered debate from the board.

While these sort things happen daily in the corporate world, it is always difficult for a business of any size to handle. Consumer confidence always takes a hit when the top man gets the axe, and Symantec will no doubt face some turbulence in the following weeks and months. However, Symantec had reassured partners and consumers alike that it will be business as usual and that Symantec leadership is quite optimistic about the future of the company. Read More

Windows 8 Developer Preview – WOW!

September 19, 2011 |

Microsoft has a new slogan to go with their upcoming operating system: “Windows reimagined.” After watching Steven Sinofsky’s keynote address at the BUILD developer conference held last week, all I can say is “WOW!”

During the address, viewers got to witness Windows 8 in action (an early developer build, anyway). If Microsoft did nothing else to improve Windows 8 and launched this developer build tomorrow, it would probably be an instant success. If you’ve ever used the Windows Phone 7, the UI will be very familiar. The live tiles are back, and better than ever. Very modern and sleek, the interface provides the user with all their important apps, photos, and more within a simple swipe or tap of the finger. Not a fan of the billboard-style flood of information? Windows 8 is fully customizable to mimic the more static Windows 7 design. Read More
