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.

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...

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...

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.

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...

The AT&T disinterest and ignorance of Windows Phone continues. I called my local store to see if they had the camera grip, and I was told they did. When I got there it was apparent the sales...

Another way to "find the libraries" (I know, you said there were probably more ways) is to right click in any of the white space in the File Explorer navigation pane, and check "Show Libraries"....

An additional thing you can do is to go to the Properties of the folders under "This PC" and on the Location tab you can change the location of those folders to folders on your Micro-SD card. If...

Yeah, I just checked my wife's Windows 8 machine, and Store purchases are in dollars. The Windows 8 Store and Windows Phone 8 stores never used Microsoft Points, which was always annoying to me...

The Verge didn't seem to have your level of skepticism, nor did not have any due diligence to cross reference the supposed anonymous insider's comments with Microsoft's official comments. Nor...

The only way that would work is if Microsoft required every console to connect online occasionally to verify that they aren't playing a disc that someone else has "registered".
