But here's the reality check: You can't price a tablet at $120 without cutting some corners. And in this case, the result is horribly lacking, and something I simply cannot recommend to anyone.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/mobile/toshiba-encore-mini-first-impressions" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/mobile/toshiba-encore-mini-first-impressions#comments Windows 8.1 with Bing Windows 8 Hardware Mobile Sun, 21 Sep 2014 15:20:00 +0000 43811 at http://winsupersite.com Microsoft Celebrates iPhone 6 Launch by Doubling Free OneDrive Storage to 30 GB http://winsupersite.com/onedrive/microsoft-celebrates-iphone-6-launch-doubling-free-onedrive-storage-30-gb <div class="field-deck"> Don't worry, it's for anyone who backs up their photos to OneDrive </div> <div class="node-body article-body">OneDrive just keeps getting better. And just a week after Microsoft upped the file size limit in its cloud storage service to 10 GB, it's making another major and positive change: It's upping the amount of free storage from 15 GB to 30 GB, and all you need to do is backup your phone's photos to OneDrive to get it. The bad news? This is a temporary bump, so you need to act fast.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/onedrive/microsoft-celebrates-iphone-6-launch-doubling-free-onedrive-storage-30-gb" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/onedrive/microsoft-celebrates-iphone-6-launch-doubling-free-onedrive-storage-30-gb#comments Windows 8 Windows Phone OneDrive Mobile Sat, 20 Sep 2014 02:34:00 +0000 43791 at http://winsupersite.com Toshiba Encore Mini Preview http://winsupersite.com/mobile/toshiba-encore-mini-preview <div class="field-deck"> We're drowning in cheap devices.

PC makers have raced to respond to Microsoft's "zero dollar" Windows licensing, and the result is a new generation of ultra-cheap Windows PCs and devices. The latest example: Toshiba's $120 mini-tablet, the Encore Mini.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/mobile/toshiba-encore-mini-preview" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/mobile/toshiba-encore-mini-preview#comments Mobile devices Windows 8.1 with Bing Windows 8 Hardware Mobile Wed, 17 Sep 2014 16:44:00 +0000 43691 at http://winsupersite.com Windows + Mac: Which Windows http://winsupersite.com/mobile/windows-mac-which-windows <div class="field-deck"> You don't travel so you can experience what you already have </div> <div class="node-body article-body">I was going to move on to a discussion of virtualizing Windows on the Mac, but before I get to that I think it may be worth a short discussion around some of the Windows-related issues you'll need to deal with regardless of which method you choose.

Microsoft announced today that its consumer-oriented OneDrive cloud storage service supports individual files of up to 10 GB each, a dramatic improvement over the previous 2 GB limit.

But if you step back and think about it for a moment, this rebranding—and the resultant relaunch of MSN as a web-based portal for all of the information that backs these wonderful apps—actually makes sense. MSN, after all, is Microsoft's online content brand, and Bing is about search. Put another way, MSN is Microsoft's Yahoo, and Bing is Microsoft's Google.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/cloud/msn-relaunch-microsofts-content-brand-enters-mobile-first-cloud-first-era" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/cloud/msn-relaunch-microsofts-content-brand-enters-mobile-first-cloud-first-era#comments Android Cloud iOS iPad iPhone Mobile devices MSN Windows 8.1 Windows Phone 8.1 Windows 8 Windows Phone Mon, 08 Sep 2014 18:36:00 +0000 43261 at http://winsupersite.com
