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

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

This is interesting. I don't usually play multiplayer games, but recently I've played almost 30 hours of Titanfall. I have not heard a single curse word or racial slur. It's actually eerily...

There is an option: "When I sign in or close all apps on a screen, go to the desktop instead of Start" that I would think would apply here. But at least for me, on this latest leaked build, it...

I find Twitch to be useful for looking at games I may want to purchase. This replaces game clips and images in the Store. I find it better than video game reviews for determining if I'm going to...

Alright, you're still picking on those of us that want music match in Xbox Music. I'm a Beatle fan, and I'm currently listening to a Beatle album on my Xbox One from a CD, because there is no...

How come you can buy a console with a download code, but there is no way to preorder a downloadable game? I knew I was paying top dollar for my Xbox One when I got it on Day One. Would I have...

Maybe you're looking at this too much from a developers perspective (and I say this as a developer). Maybe Microsoft is planning for a way for a user to purchase an app on either Windows Phone 8....

Microsoft used to say you should think about the Desktop as just another Metro app. Now it looks like they are abandoning that and making Metro apps runnable on the Desktop. I'm ok with that...

It would be nice if a pinned Metro app on the taskbar would show the full-sized Live Tile for that app when you hover over the icon. Maybe if the app is running it should show the app preview,...

Chrome seems like a poor choice for Windows users, as there are significant trust issues with Google, since they have proven many times that they are willing to screw mutual Microsoft/Google...

And like the iOS version, the app uses up one of the Xbox Music Device slots, even if you don't download any music. Even worse, if you don't have any open slots, the app doesn't even let you...

Paul did mention some good points about the phone. I bought the Moto G and I think Paul's negative points are all valid. Keep in mind a compelling use of the Lumia 520 is to expand the memory...

Being a dedicated WP user, I like to keep a fairly up-to-date Android phone handy for comparison. For that purpose, the Moto G is the only Android phone available at $100 with this good of a...

Hopefully Microsoft gets around to implementing the Family Sharing feature by the time you get another Xbox. Then everyone in your family can share everyone's content regardless of which Xbox...

I don't agree that this thing is such a must-have. Anyone with a battery charger can find AA batteries cheaper than $15. And this option is more ideal since you can always have additional...

I don't get it. By displaying the buttons onscreen, that wouldn't be removing the Back button, that would simply be moving it. And it would still have the supposed "back stack" issues. I don't...

I'd rather wait a little longer to download games, than to annoyingly swap discs in and out for the life of the console. Anyway, downloading is a lot faster than waiting for an Amazon delivery....

My experience on my Surface RT is that after the thumbnail flips, if you let go, it actually will completely close the app (it will be removed from Task Manager). After it flips, if I drag the...

This seems perfectly suited for schools, where all the PCs in a classroom can use the same account, with all the settings and apps synced across all devices.

Friday, September 27, 2013 - 10:33pm

I'd prefer to have a "History" section in the Store to show what was updated when, rather than junking up a notification center. Thought should be put into where normally unnecessary messages...

Monday, September 16, 2013 - 4:49pm

Except you would potentially end up with frustrated family members since only one person can stream music at the same time. And there seems to be a delay between when you stop streaming on a...

I have the Windows 8.1 Preview, and my SkyDrive folder is at H:\SkyDrive. I can't seem to find any way in the Preview to move it, so I've come to the conclusion that it persisted the SkyDrive...

Wednesday, September 11, 2013 - 8:14pm

Yes, that's exactly what I do. I can't live without wireless charging after having a Lumia 920. Searching for an available cable on my messy desk, and making sure it is plugged in at the other...

"Indeed, the only problem I see with the fulfillment of the promised expansion into Android and iOS is that I'll have a harder time managing the number of devices I can use with Xbox Music Pass...

Not supported on my Samsung Galaxy S4 either.

Friday, September 6, 2013 - 12:47am

These aren't "native" apps at all. Technically there is a difference between code that targets native APIs like WinRT and Win32, and non-native code that targets a browser. These apps may look...

No, the Lumia 1020 records in stereo. Check the specs here:...

Now that's some great Photoshop work!

There is a big difference between a native HTML5 app that targets a native framework like WinPRT, and an HTML5 app that is hosted in a web control, served up from the web. Microsoft is pushing...
