It seems like this kind of functionality is a complete nonstarter on a device without multi-day (or, preferably weeklong) battery life. When are you supposed to charge the thing if not at night?...

Two minor niggles: first, we're talking about handset sales here-- Apple is not a "distant second." Apple and Samsung sell a remarkably similar number of smartphones every quarter and year. Apple...

First of all, thank you for describing the 5/5s case as "hurty." Excellent.

Second, you state regarding NFC that "Windows Phone added this 2 years ago, but no one uses it." Do you mean NFC...

Magnety-pen-holdery-bit is a nice touch.

A good and necessary first step, even if a bit late to the game... now how about client-side encryption where the user (rather than Microsoft) holds the key? Even Google - a company for whom such...

Extremely compelling device, and a good price and form factor. Roku has been my recommendation to people for some time now, but this looks very nearly perfect. Ordered.

I tested a relatively diverse set of devices when I purchased my most recent phone, including living with a Nokia 1020 and a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 for a few days each. My reaction to the Note 3...

This would never happen if Ballmer was still CEO.

Wait, too early? OK, I'll wait until the next manufactured crisis. :)

Very promising. This may be a good replacement for my Samsung ATIV 500T (which I love) AND replace my Nexus 7 (which I use pretty much exclusively for email triage and reading web sites in the...

I'm incredibly frustrated by this device. It's beautiful - a truly top-notch hardware design. However, I simply don't think it's useful because the app store is still a bit of a wasteland, and it...

Makes sense... however, it's kind of meaningless without a metro version of office. Once that's there, they can really make desktop go away on RT (and I fully expect they will.)

The ability for enthusiast users to bypass carriers and upgrade their phones is a huge step for Windows Phone, especially since the platform (by necessity as much as metaphor) focuses the user...

This is ridiculous, and the only possible explanation is spite. They're on Blackberry for crying out loud.

And the web-based version is exactly "good enough." It's not nearly as good as a...

Great article, very thought provoking. I look forward to the rest of the series.

Do you really think IDC is right that it will take until 2017 to cross the line where tablets outsell PCs?...

Interestingly, if you watch this ad starting with the base assumption that they've given up on Surface 2 (RT) it makes a lot more sense. While I'm not suggesting that's the case, it wouldn't...

"...the iPhone 5C is identical to its predecessor internally, while the iPhone 5S is identical externally"

The iPhone 5c is not identical internally to its predecessor - it is substantially...

Make sure you write both from the perspective of "delta from windows 8" and "delta from windows 7. Assuming the reader has ever used Windows 8 would be a mistake.
