Run Windows Update again AFTER you install those 5 updates and it will appear. Finally after installing and installing the 800MB update run WU again and a new update (2MB) will appear

If MS can use Nokia's marketing and connections to rise in SE Asia, India and Latin Amercia with a strong showing in Europe, then the US market can be thrown under the bus, though US bloggers wont...

Where can you get the Nokia program to manually update your phone? My operator took 3 months after GA to update but I found the image months before and installed it myself. But I formated my...

MS to Windows 8 user: For your loyalty in buying W8 when everyone said it was crap you get 8.1 for free!!

MS to Windows 7 user: Since you want to keep doing a desktop-only existance you can...

Paul, as much sense as you make in theory, if Ballmer or any CEO tried to give Windows (and perhaps even WP) for free they would be fired on the spot by the board.

Paul, you sound like a Vorlon xD

Tuesday, August 13, 2013 - 3:21pm

If they do that we'll have hundreds of articles written about how 8.1 is a dissapointment and that MS is doomed (again). They'd rather make us wait and do it right, unlike the Windows 8 launch

I hace a Lumia 720 since a week ago, awesome device and great build.....but every app I see on the street is for iOS and Android, so yeah!!

Come on Nokia, give it to Microsoft!!!!

Yeah, just like everybody hated Windows Vista and moved to Linux.....oh, wait!!

Tuesday, July 2, 2013 - 9:42pm

None, for the lower corners you need a third-party utility like Start8 or similar

1. Unlikely. If the pattern keeps going on, you have to un-install and re-install. But since this will be done via WinStore the possibility exists, depends on how much effort MS makes and level of...

Yeah, but if Microsoft wants Windows RT to ever lift off successfully it needs to fully ditch the desktop and keep itself as a full consumption device with all remaining dektop programs and...

The hybrids with Atom Clover Trail already do this, but for the Intel main core line you will have to wait for Q3 2013 when Intel unveils the successor of Ivy Bridge

Competition is good for everyone, otherwise we would not have OSX and Linux since Windows is the dominant OS in desktop enviroments!!

"browsing a wee bit of web".......up to 1 of the 1.5 billion user base of Windows PC only needs that, so the Windows PC is out of luck.

As tablet and smartphone procesors acquire more power...

When enhanced protection mode is activated it doesn't allow any plug-in or toolbar in desktop mode, not even LastPass or WOT. Since that mode allows for greater protection/sandboxing in 64bit...

IE 10 in Windows 8 is a strange animal, no plugins at all and you can only use a TPL list to block ads (but no flash ads). However it is fast, renders well and doesn't consume RAM like FF.

If Windows 8 and Surface are not the causes of his leaving, then the timing is pretty much terrible. Couldn't they have waited until 2013 to do this more quietly?

Regardless, now is the...

That's a first world problem, Paul. Here in South America we see no ads anywhere in Windows 8!!!

Wednesday, February 8, 2012 - 7:40pm
MS doesn't care about desktop users...why should they? Any new PC sold will come with Windows 8 by default, whether you like it or not. OTOH the mobile market is heavily contested, so that is...
