After consumers ignored the initial round of full-sized Windows tablets in 2012, Microsoft and its PC maker partners turned to mini-tablets, and we spent much of last year examining those devices. But now in 2014, the market has swung again, and consumers are looking for full-sized tablets. And if you're looking for a Windows device, you've got two terrific choices, the Lenovo ThinkPad 10 and the Dell Venue 11 Pro.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/mobile-devices/lenovo-thinkpad-10-vs-dell-venue-11-pro" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/mobile-devices/lenovo-thinkpad-10-vs-dell-venue-11-pro#comments Dell Lenovo Mobile devices ThinkPad Windows 8.1 Update 1 Windows 8 Hardware Wed, 30 Jul 2014 15:36:00 +0000 41801 at http://winsupersite.com China Confirms It Is Investigating Microsoft for Antitrust Violations http://winsupersite.com/china-confirms-it-investigating-microsoft-antitrust-violations <div class="node-body link-body">China's antimonopoly enforcement agency confirmed on Wednesday that it is investigating Microsoft "on suspicions of monopolistic behavior."

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.

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 What Satya Said: Notes from Microsoft's Q4 2014 Earnings Conference Call http://winsupersite.com/cloud/what-satya-said-notes-microsofts-q4-2014-earnings-conference-call <div class="field-deck"> Some details in an ocean of talk </div> <div class="node-body article-body">On Tuesday, Microsoft announced the results of its fiscal fourth quarter, which ended June 30, 2014: The firm earned a net income of $6.48 billion on revenues of $23.38 billion. We already knew that the software giant was an economic powerhouse. But Microsoft's story in this changing era hinges on a move from traditional software to services and devices. So what did CEO Satya Nadella tell us in the wake of these earnings, and how does this change our perception of how the company is doing?</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/cloud/what-satya-said-notes-microsofts-q4-2014-earnings-conference-call" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/cloud/what-satya-said-notes-microsofts-q4-2014-earnings-conference-call#comments Cloud Mobile Windows Wed, 23 Jul 2014 14:13:00 +0000 41481 at http://winsupersite.com Microsoft Muddies the One Windows Waters http://winsupersite.com/windows/microsoft-muddies-one-windows-waters <div class="field-deck"> No, Virginia, we're not heading towards a single Windows </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Well, here we go again. During yesterday's post-earnings conference call, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella stated that the firm was preparing to streamline Windows from three separate operating systems into a "single converged operating system for screens of all sizes," touching off another round of confusion. But there's no reason to be confused: This isn't news, and it isn't even new. And it most certainly doesn't actually mean that there will only be "one" version of Windows 9 (or whatever) that runs on PC, tablets, phones, TVs, embedded devices, and so on.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/windows/microsoft-muddies-one-windows-waters" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/windows/microsoft-muddies-one-windows-waters#comments Windows 9 Xbox One Windows Phone Windows Server Windows Wed, 23 Jul 2014 13:02:00 +0000 41471 at http://winsupersite.com R.I.P., TechEd http://winsupersite.com/rip-teched <div class="node-body link-body">How do you follow-up on a TechEd that featured only cloud-based product updates and not a single on-premises upgrade?
