So, people don't buy phone cases/holders anymore?

Good move

I've played on every Playstation system there was, and making the jump to the X-Box family of devices was not a problem for me at all.

Tuesday, November 19, 2013 - 5:36pm

Remote, Smart Glass, and Kinect are definitely technology that Microsoft needs to lean on heavily.

Maybe Paul just really isn't a phablet guy

Tuesday, November 19, 2013 - 10:23am

Even though there is all the confusion on whether you have to pay to play online with all PS4 games, I still think Microsoft is missing a golden opportunity of introducing a new Live price...

LOL, I was just about to say they look fine to me

Tuesday, November 19, 2013 - 10:15am

X-Box Music(though I still don't get why they didn't try to get a one word snappy name like Zune) will improve over time. When you look at all the streaming and radio services out there, other...

But they're still making money hand over fist on Office without it being cross-platform. They need to focus on their own products first, then put Office on the other platforms.

Seems to me if someone is in the market for both a phone and a tablet, this deal is a no-brainer. The only issue someone might have with the Nokia tablet I think is it doesn't have full-size USB...

Tuesday, November 19, 2013 - 3:24am

I agree with Paul only to the extent that a dedicated device is a hard sell in just about any market these days. But comparing consoles to other forms of gaming is like comparing phones to PCs...

I don't know what happened when I first opened this article, but all the sudden I got some sports ad, so I probably lost my previous attempt at a post.

Windows Phone will likely grow...

Tuesday, November 12, 2013 - 5:27pm

Keep it coming.I love hearing about updates that improve products. BTW, Paul did to see the Best Buy deal on Surface 1?

Tuesday, November 12, 2013 - 1:36pm

One thing I will say is that I think Microsoft needs to find a way to be more successful in a world where people have more limited cash. You're talking about expensive devices where the cost of...

Tuesday, November 12, 2013 - 1:33pm

I have no problem with this device though I think I'll be getting a Surface 2 with no need to dock it. That being said, I'm perfectly fine with the second generation devices and accessories....

Thursday, November 7, 2013 - 2:20pm

Paul is right. For years there has this movement, that started with Mac elitist that you have to hate everything Microsoft. Then Netscape game and eventually Google, and now anything that's not...

The other day I was using the LinkedIn app on an iPad. I used to work very similar to any other iOs or Metro device. Now now It has a little twist. When I open multiple profiles or messages they...

1. I think some people just don't get it. There is a difference between needing touch and not having desktop. The only touch device I've ever used Widows 8.x on is a Surface and some 17in or so...

Friday, November 1, 2013 - 5:20pm

I actually kind of agree with Paul. I think for not Office RT or Office Metro should not try to offer all the same features as full office. They should not be trying to do too much in these...

I can see some use for it just like I see the use of a wireless keyboard on my desktop.

Thursday, October 31, 2013 - 7:39pm

This is nothing to get overworked about. Although Call of Duty is one of the most popular games out there, people are not going to decide which one they are going to get simply off 1 or 2 games,...

Thursday, October 31, 2013 - 7:35pm

I would love to see Paul and Mary Joe debate on why one has moved to Windows 8.x and the other hasn't. I want to see her go into detail about what exactly it is about Windows 7 and mostly the...

Thursday, October 31, 2013 - 7:31pm

Most people I know with Windows 8 know there are programs that exist that will put the start menu back. Only a minority of them have gone that route. Most maybe want the desktop more than Metro,...

Thursday, October 31, 2013 - 7:25pm

I still don't think the star menu is a deal breaker. Yes, business is Microsoft's biggest client, but business is a lot of things. Most businesses are buying computers for their employee...

Thursday, October 31, 2013 - 7:12pm

1. Almost half of that is deals and incentives which is good.

2. That's nothing to Microsoft. That's like me spending 4K on advertising.

Thursday, October 31, 2013 - 7:08pm

8.1 offers a better help system, but they should have replaced the old Windows tour with a pop-up asking if people wanted to see a video. That being said, things would have been a lot easier if...

Thursday, October 31, 2013 - 5:57pm

That is never going to happen. The only way the start menu is coming back is through a 3rd party tool. There will be some people who don't like that, but they can probably get enough people to be...

Thursday, October 31, 2013 - 5:54pm

I still there was a place for the dancing ads if Microsoft had executed them properly. The average person who buys a phone or tablet responds to the coolness factor of commercials more than the...

Thursday, October 31, 2013 - 5:41pm

I think it's a bold plan. You have to have big goals or you're not going to get anything done. Even if they only do half what they want to do, there is still a measure of success there.


Thursday, October 31, 2013 - 4:50pm

I heard this one was only working with Pro. I guess they got that fixed.
