Thank goodness! My Surface Pro 3 finally works again with my secondary monitor hooked up with a Plugable USB docking station (UD-3000). It's been many months since that has worked. So excited...

Congratulations on what you have accomplished on the SuperSite for Windows and for your upcoming adventures on thurrott.com!

Thursday, January 15, 2015 - 11:49

Is calling it "SuperSite" just shorthand or are their plans to make it less focused on Windows?

I'm on your side with this one. Having all browsers use the same rendering engine only complicates the problem of poorly written webpages, just like in the old IE days. Developers would write to...

The poor design of the Surface Pro 3 TypeCover attaching too close to the screen makes the lines under the taskbar icons a really poor choice. Due to this design flaw, it's already hard enough to...

Wow, there were over 13 ways to crash the app?!!! Sometimes you have to throw away a codebase like that.

Thursday, November 20, 2014 - 13:34

Yes, I did. I've reverted back to 8.1 since I had so many problems. After reverting I found that I still had Store problems. Then I discovered the time on my PC was wrong. This seems to happen...

Has anyone gotten the Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter working with Windows 10 Technical Preview? On my Surface, when I try to "Add a wireless display" I get a "Driver error" message for the...

I can imagine the Microsoft watch supporting SensorCore and MobileTrack, essentially making the Microsoft watch a Fitbit device.

The simple touch-friend tablety stuff will be there in the finished product. But first they are fixing the Desktop for all those people who were begging for the more complicated and familiar...

Just make it show up on the side of the window. If it's too tall: scrollbar. Just like everything else on the desktop. Easy.

I keep hearing that the iPhone 6 camera is better for "normal people", but don't normal people want to zoom? Zooming (without totally destroying the photo) is not a pro feature, but it is missing...

#7: OK, I need to go back and watch the Lumia 830 reveal again. I swear they showed a camera that was both high-quality and fast. I keep hearing that iPhone photos are "good enough". How fast...

Monday, September 22, 2014 - 11:44

Maybe so, but Paul is suggesting the camera on the iPhone 6 Plus is a better choice "for most people", since the camera is faster pocket to picture. Taking 100+ burst shots doesn't seem to be an...

Lumia phones don't require two photos to be saved. That's only with the Nokia Camera app. And while even the Microsoft Camera requires processing the captured image to save a smaller (normal-...

Hopefully Microsoft will remove "the most partisan hack propaganda 'news' channel" (Fox News) from Cortana. You're complaining about a name that used to be associated with MSNBC, but for people...

Portrait-oriented videos? That's a bigger sin than taking pictures with an iPad.

Saturday, August 16, 2014 - 00:12

That is not correct. The article sounds misleading, but I think the key word he used is "redundancy". I think he's downloading the high-res version to his Surface Pro 3 and syncing that to...

That would make it function like a modal window. That wouldn't be consistent with Windows Phone's UI at all. I like that you can open another folder or launch an app without having to first...

Sunday, July 27, 2014 - 21:41

Have you considered that the weak link could be the APIs Microsoft is providing, or the constraints the OS is putting on this feature? It's a brand new feature, with APIs Microsoft hasn't even...

Sunday, July 27, 2014 - 21:13

My guess is they needed to figure out what changes they needed to make to the APIs before making them available to everyone. Once APIs are released to all developers, then it's harder to change...

Sunday, July 27, 2014 - 01:39

Sometimes it's the small things that can make your phone feel fresh and new. After installing this app I realized that the WP lock screen had become old and tired, looking nearly identical to how...

Wednesday, July 9, 2014 - 20:55

I'm in that boat. For me, I'm keeping the Office 365 Home subscription since I paid up until sometime next year. In addition I'm getting an Office 365 Small Business subscription (soon to be...

Tuesday, July 8, 2014 - 15:10

I wonder if the rumor of Microsoft working to run Android apps on Windows Phone is part of an effort to switch Nokia X from Android to Windows Phone. It would expand the reach of Windows Phone,...

Why no Windows RT driver? They don't even mention it.

Saturday, May 17, 2014 - 19:05

Maybe they will allow us to play our old Xbox 360 Halo games on Xbox One. At least then we could say we can play Halo on Xbox One. Or maybe Anniversary Editions for later Halo games, if they...

I agree. My two biggest issues weren't solved either. #1: Loading artist and albums takes forever when you have a large collection. It used to say "Loading..." for all the artists names in WP8....

Monday, April 21, 2014 - 23:04

I wish this was configurable. It's driving me nuts. Trying to click tiny full-screen icons is nearly impossible without zooming in while trying not to pause the video by touching it. It's just...

Thursday, April 17, 2014 - 15:04

There are also "Bluetooth" and "Headphones" volume settings when you use those. These are even more important to me than the others.

Thursday, April 17, 2014 - 14:46

I thought the entire "audio" Settings menu was provided by Nokia's "audio" app, not WP8.1....
