Oops, may have spoken too soon. On my laptop the update does seem to have caused one glitch; it messed up some of my program groups on the Start screen (a bunch of icons from various groups were...

Updated my gaming rig, my laptop, and my Surface RT last night. The entire job took a couple hours, but I didn't encounter any difficulties. The enhancements are what they are. I don't mind...

Those were my thoughts as well. It makes me wonder if I'm going to start liking the new way of doing it that the update provides (with the title bar on Metro apps now) versus the original Windows...

An Excel Achievement on Xbox One might be interesting ... like putting together a personal checking account spreadsheet and then getting rewarded when it balances. :-)

Thanks for the very thorough review Paul. Looking forward to getting this on all my PCs next week.

I hope the Start menu that they eventually include in Threshold ends up being more than just the minimum needed to quiet complaints ... in other words, maybe it should be the Start menu reimagined...

Hey Paul,

Speaking of virtual reality in its infancy, I was wondering if you had ever seen this Saturday Night Live sketch from the '90s:

I'm scared to death to play multiplayer anything. The last thing I need is for somebody else to tell me how bad I suck. I bought Battlefield 4 the other day, investigated the multiplayer options...

If it interferes with his primary responsibilities, marriage, children, job, taking care of the house, etc., then I would agree with you, however if it's simply used as a means of entertainment in...

Sweet, I'm going to have to check this out. I always wondered when they were eventually going to get around to doing this.

Thursday, March 20, 2014 - 10:28am

Smart shoes, smart belts, smart hats, smart ... pants? Don't stop me now, I'm on a roll...

Holy cow, I remember using a parallel/serial cable or whatever to connect my Windows 95 Pentium machine to upgrade to my 1.0 GHz Windows 98 machine (which I eventually upgraded to XP) in order to...

Hey guys. I recently picked up a 7" Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 from CostCo. The price was great ($30 rebate), and I bought it just to have some Android in my life again, and it's nice to have a really...

Paul is finally let loose from the noose... ;-)

Hey guys, I actually have an OUYA. I got excited about the hype when it was in beta and ended up buying one at Best Buy because I really wanted to see what it was like. Overall it's not a bad...

What, suddenly AM radio is no longer good for anybody anymore? :-D

Thursday, January 16, 2014 - 4:09pm

If this is overblown, I wonder if it was overblown when people couldn't move their mouse to the lower-left corner and click a hot-spot to bring up a full-screen Start menu. :-)

I say if people want to buy a Chromecast, then more power to them. But for what it's worth, I have a Roku, and I installed the Plex server on my main PC and the Plex app on the Roku, and I don't...

Wednesday, January 15, 2014 - 9:41pm

I'm not religious, but God bless you. I am glad somebody pointed this out.

Friday, January 3, 2014 - 6:29pm

As I sit here battling the flu it's nice to know I can turn to What the Tech and kick back. I didn't think I'd be starting 2014 this way. Anyway, agreed on the Roku -- I picked one up last year...

Friday, December 20, 2013 - 8:44pm

Wow Andrew, I'm surprised some people threw those labels at you. Overall I think you're very fair. Take me, for instance. I just got done watching the show with my Mac mini on my left and my...

Just attach a video camera to each drone and have it send a continuous feed to the drone app on your Kindle Fire. Watch your package slowly make its journey to your house and begin the descent on...

Wednesday, December 4, 2013 - 4:26pm

Don't worry Paul, I for one understood the point of your review as I'm sure many of your regular readers do. As far as I can tell you've been pretty fair with both the XB1 and the PS4. Now how...

Wednesday, December 4, 2013 - 4:19pm

I'm facing basically the same conundrum, although with me I have way more PC games than Xbox 360 games to finish. :-)

Monday, November 25, 2013 - 6:11pm

The games that have been released so far have my curiosity piqued to the point where I feel like getting both. Oh my ... after a year, then two years, then three years goes by, there will be a...

Monday, November 25, 2013 - 5:32pm

Well, let's see. I remember how infuriating it was to wait for downloads on a 2400 baud modem. Then there was some relief after upgrading to 14.4. Now we're downloading games that are 20, 30,...

Monday, November 25, 2013 - 3:13pm

For the most part I prefer PC as well, but if the exclusive games are good enough then console is okay with me. Also something about setting it up in the living room and playing along with family...

Sunday, November 24, 2013 - 6:06pm

Oh my gosh, I laughed out loud when Andrew did his drunk talk show host routine. :-)

Monday, November 18, 2013 - 6:50pm

When I heard on the news that one million had been sold, I immediately thought, "Wow, that's a lot." Killzone looks very cool to me, and I'm actually becoming more and more tempted to buy one of...

Yes Paul! I read Masters of Doom (on Kindle) as well. Great book.
