I didn't do so to abuse my expense account—indeed, the stay was provided free of charge—but rather to experience an interesting new fusion of two of my top interests, technology and travel. You see, Mandarin is piloting the use of Surface Pro 3 in its rooms. And I was curious to learn how that would work.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/mobile/surface-pro-3-mandarin-oriental-hotels" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/mobile/surface-pro-3-mandarin-oriental-hotels#comments Mobile devices Windows 8.1 Windows 8.1 Update 1 Windows 8 Hardware Mobile Mon, 28 Jul 2014 17:28:00 +0000 41681 at http://winsupersite.com Microsoft Leaks Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 Details http://winsupersite.com/windows-phone/microsoft-leaks-windows-phone-81-update-1-details <div class="field-deck"> A ton of new features, some very interesting </div> <div class="node-body article-body">With Windows Phone 8.1 starting to dribble out to users via the ever-slow wireless carriers, tech enthusiasts have already turned their attention to Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1. To date, there's been very little information about this update, beyond the fact that it was a bucket of sorts for features that didn't make the original 8.1 cut. But thanks to a nice leak from—you guessed it—Microsoft, we now know quite a bit more.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/windows-phone/microsoft-leaks-windows-phone-81-update-1-details" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/windows-phone/microsoft-leaks-windows-phone-81-update-1-details#comments Windows Phone 8.1 Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 Windows Phone Mon, 28 Jul 2014 14:36:00 +0000 41671 at http://winsupersite.com Cortana vs. Siri: Happy Anniversary http://winsupersite.com/windows-phone/cortana-vs-siri-happy-anniversary <div class="field-deck"> Cortana is your wingman </div> <div class="node-body article-body">One of the highlights of Build 2014 was Microsoft's public introduction of Cortana, the digital personal assistant in Windows Phone 8.1. Obviously aimed at Siri in iPhone, Cortana comes with a surprisingly strong list of capabilities. Including, apparently, the ability to make Siri look bad, as a new TV ad ably demonstrates.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/windows-phone/cortana-vs-siri-happy-anniversary" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/windows-phone/cortana-vs-siri-happy-anniversary#comments Mobile devices Windows Phone 8.1 Windows Phone Mon, 28 Jul 2014 13:51:00 +0000 41661 at http://winsupersite.com Live Lock Screen Beta for Windows Phone 8.1 http://winsupersite.com/windows-phone/live-lock-screen-beta-windows-phone-81 <div class="field-deck"> Not really worth the wait </div> <div class="node-body article-body">When you think about all the stuff that goes into what we think of as "Windows Phone 8.1," the reality is that a bunch of it isn't even part of the OS. There's the Cyan firmware update for Lumia users, of course, which adds a ton of new features of its own. There are various new and improved Microsoft and Nokia apps. And then there's a Live Lock Screen app that Microsoft promised to deliver all the way back in April. Well, it's finally here in beta form.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/windows-phone/live-lock-screen-beta-windows-phone-81" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/windows-phone/live-lock-screen-beta-windows-phone-81#comments Windows Phone 8.1 Windows Phone Sat, 26 Jul 2014 17:56:00 +0000 41641 at http://winsupersite.com Modern Combat 5 for Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8/8.1 http://winsupersite.com/games/modern-combat-5-windows-81-and-windows-phone-881 <div class="field-deck"> A first class shooter for touch devices </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Gameloft this week released the next installment in its Call of Duty-like Modern Combat series for mobile devices. That's no surprise, of course. But there's some good news for Windows users, in particular. Modern Combat 5: Blackout is available for both Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8/8.1, and was made so simultaneously with the release on other platforms, which is a first. And better still, you only have to buy it once: If you get the game on Windows, you own it on Phone too, and vice versa.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/games/modern-combat-5-windows-81-and-windows-phone-881" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/games/modern-combat-5-windows-81-and-windows-phone-881#comments Windows 8.1 Windows Phone 8 Windows Phone 8.1 Windows 8 Windows Phone Windows RT Games Fri, 25 Jul 2014 16:01:00 +0000 41621 at http://winsupersite.com Short Takes: July 25, 2014 http://winsupersite.com/short-takes-july-25-2014 <div class="node-body link-body">An often irreverent look at this week's other news, including an expansion of Microsoft's retail plans, Yammer moves around as co-founder leaves, tablet slowdown doesn't explain iPad sales freefall, Google grilled by EU regulators over "right to be forgotten," e-book judge is troubled over Apple settlement proposal, and Amazon sells everything but profits.</div> <div class="field-image-promo"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_promo" width="595" height="335" alt="" src="http://winsupersite.com/site-files/winsupersite.com/files/ms-stores-hero.jpg?1406302188" /> </div> <div class="field-link-target"> <span>Open In New Window:&nbsp;</span> No </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/short-takes-july-25-2014" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Cloud Mobile devices Fri, 25 Jul 2014 15:29:00 +0000 41611 at http://winsupersite.com Xbox One SmartGlass Beta for Windows Phone 8/8.1 http://winsupersite.com/windows-phone/xbox-one-smartglass-beta-windows-phone-881 <div class="field-deck"> SmartGlass finally gets useful </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Microsoft has released a public beta version of the promised Xbox One SmartGlass release that adds a ton of new features for Xbox One users, including the ability to buy Xbox One games on your handset, "like" items, and more.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/windows-phone/xbox-one-smartglass-beta-windows-phone-881" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/windows-phone/xbox-one-smartglass-beta-windows-phone-881#comments Windows Phone 8 Windows Phone 8.1 Xbox One Windows Phone Thu, 24 Jul 2014 19:52:00 +0000 41601 at http://winsupersite.com OneNote Expands to Amazon Fire Phone and Kindle Fire Tablets http://winsupersite.com/office/onenote-expands-amazon-fire-phone-and-kindle-fire-tablets <div class="field-deck"> Another key Microsoft app shows up on FireOS </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Microsoft's ubiquitous note-taking mobile app just got a lot more, um, ubiquitous.
