Personally, I don't like integration because all to offten, the system doesn't make intelligent choices about what to include and what not to include. For example, I hate having Facebook or...

These apps don't work for those of us stuck on the old version of Office 365. I tried it, no dice.

I wish I could be upgraded...or even have a timeline to be upgraded. I'm tempted to...

Haha! :)

Since responding on this thread I've looked more into what's going on with the "AC" classified songs. These were ripped from my own CDs.

It seems the underlying metadata is...

I don't have a Surface RT, so those instructions won't work for me. I'm using Windows 8 Pro on a homebrew desktop PC.

XBox Music has messedd up much of my other music as well, the AC/DC is...

I'm pretty sure I don't have that turned on at all.

Music is being picked up from my iTunes folder, where, for the most part anyway, iTunes has done a decent job with metadata. So, XBox...

Here, in a nutshell, is why I'm so annoyed with XBox Music and refuse to use it. Wish I could attach a screenshot, but the snipping tool doesn't work for Metro apps. :/

In my music library...

Zune Desktop is unsupported and therefore Kind of useless. Windows Media Player does a worse job than iTunes in terms of album art, etc, as such I've always refused to touch it.

Neither...

I tried using Zune desktop software for a time, back when I had two Zune portable players. However, I gave up and went to Apple as I grew tired of waiting for Redmond to provide a subscription...

Let's make one thing clear...iTunes is the work of the devil and I pine every day for something better. However, for those with large CD collections that have been ripped AND who live outside of...

I really, really want to like the Music app. I hate iTunes and every time I open it I cringe waiting for the fresh hell I'm about to face. I was so happy when iTunes Match came along as it meant...

I'm tired of waiting for Microsoft to "get with it". With Windows 8, I had high hopes that their aspirations would result in a good end-to-end experience right out of the box.

It has not...

Following up on the snarky comment I just left about not working in Canada...from within the news app, if I bring up the search charm and search for "winsupersite" I get the content that way....

Sunday, February 3, 2013 - 5:07pm

This does not appear to work for me...I live in Canada. Guess it's a US only thing.

Typical Microsoft.

Sunday, February 3, 2013 - 2:18pm

Nice vision...sadly, I don't think Microsoft could ever pull it off. That's kind of the point of Paul's article.

Sunday, February 3, 2013 - 2:16pm

This article highlights one of Microsoft's biggest problems...they have grand ideas but can't go the extra mile to implement them. Say what you will about Apple, but for the most part their...

Paying a higher price for your new laptop doesn't guarantee a higher quality product or experience. Last year I purchased an Asus laptop for $1000 + tax from a reputable store (not Best Buy) and...

"I refuse to visit other large sites due to the link baiting headlines and their fostering of fan boy bickering in the comments."

I'm with you on this. Many of the complete B.S. stories,...

Paul, never forget that you do a terrific job and it's always a pleasure for me to read your articles and listen to you, Leo, and Mary Jo each week.

I'm blown away by the fact that you're...

Sunday, November 25, 2012 - 2:04pm

I live in Canada and the only viable option for us is iTunes. The new Xbox Music service is basically broken and incomplete, as you point out Paul. I was giving them money, each month, hoping it...

This is...unfortunate. I can't say that I'm surprised though. At this point I guess it requires too much effort and brain power to retire the Registry and think of something new. I suppose...
