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".

I agree with Paul. I liked the option of purchasing a disc to avoid long downloads, but with the advantages of having the games stored in a "digital locker". After installing a game, I liked the...

It only took 6 months for the HTC hypnosis to wear off! I never understood how the 8X having thinner edges outweighs all the advantages of the Lumia 920. Now we finally know it doesn't!

I feel like I'm mentally there, but the cloud services haven't caught up. I'm get 145GB of Skydrive storage (25GB free, 100GB purchased, and 20GB through Office subscription). That's enough for...

Yes, you can pull out the "switcher" on the left, and drag an app off the bar and down to the bottom of the screen. But oddly (and I consider this a bug), it only works if you are viewing another...

I agree. I had to turn off email notifications because the sound my Surface would make, while in standby, when I got an email was embarrassing!

The value is being able to select from a curated list of your own music on other devices such as Windows Phone, Surface, or other Windows PCs. It's much easier to find my own music this way,...

When you download you get DRMed WMA files. According to Microsoft WMA has better sound quality than MP3 at the same bitrate. So theoretically, a 192kbps WMA file may sound similar to a 256kbps...

Has anyone considered that it is a good thing to get the word out that desirable apps can originate on Windows Phone? I've gotten a lot of relatives with iPhones hooked on Wordament this past...

Some of the commenters here are forgetting that Google wants go keep their Gmail users, hoping they will occasionally visit the website and view some of those targeted ads. Google is putting up a...

So how do you listen to music that is not on Xbox Music on your Windows Phones? If you don't sync with a PC then on Windows Phone you limit your listening to only the songs on Xbox Music. The...

What are the sales numbers and what were the projections? Are such short-term sales numbers usually representative of Windows sales over the life of the product?

Like Paul, I put my money into the Kindle ecosystem, but I am envious of the Nook app for Windows 8. The Nook app even allows you to browse books for purchase within the app. The clunky Kindle...

Maybe you should reconsider your love for the 8X. You get smaller keyboard keys on the 8X's narrower screen than you did on your Lumia 900 even though both phones have 4.3 inch screens. The...

Thanks for the tip! It's not so much a search box on your desktop (like your screenshot portrays) as it is a floating toolbar that you can pop on top of any running applications by pressing...

Paul, with your screenshot you've pointed out how dumb the iPad interface is. Your screenshot looks really silly, as you intended. But you know that Windows 8 looks great whether there are 3...

Apple's "superior" approach doesn't support different screen ratios. So Apple is stuck with an old-fashioned 4:3 screen ratio with no way out. They also offer no choice at all...

Silverlight is a great way to get .NET developers to write line of business web apps that run in a browser and don't have to be deployed to each machine. I don't know if Microsoft has a...

The glossy finish matches my shinny Samsung TV better. Also, what about the Kinect? If they don't change the Kinect to a matte finish then there's going to be a mismatch. My biggest...
