I'm not sure how this new app works with the old music + video app but, Settings -> phone storage has the option Store new music+videos on -- SD card or phone.

and another thing...I have Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 Preview available to me. If Microsoft kills off sales in Zune, I don't have any way to use my Music Pass. Xbox Music Store is just a very bare...

It's nice they are so big and bold. Like in preschool. Thanks MS for being so grown up about fixing your mistakes. :/

Not a surprise. Sadly, Xbox Music has a long way to go before it comes close to the richness that Zune has achieved. The Zune Marketplace search includes playlists that Xbox Music seems to be...

Sorry, diacritical marks for the onscreen keyboard are nothing new. They were part of Windows 8.0.

This has been an ongoing problem for ages. Why is it so hard? Is it a hardware problem? It would seem fairly simple for a computer to figure out that (x1-number of pixels by y1-number of pixels)...

I'm coming in from behind here. I guess I'm something of a romantic. Paul Thurrott's (Pocket) Field Guide to ... reminds me of the great adventure stories from the last 2 centuries. Great...

I realize indexing is outside the app but, it's nice to see my videos in Xbox Video now. Let's hope they don't introduce Xbox Video Match. Music Match is as bad as Apple's seriously broken Maps...

Indexing seems much less broken. Music Match, however, is another story. I have a very eclectic collection of music. Most ripped from CDs. Zune managed to match the CDs 90% of the time. Music...

The most annoying thing about the People hub is that I have no control over the image associated with the contact. They are MY People, why should Facebook have more control over them than me? Some...

I'd like playing on the Secrets brand with "Xbox Music - Revealed".

The Wedge Touch Mouse doesn't seem to support Natural Scrolling so it is contrary to the Touch Cover touch pad.

Two things are interesting about this "break". One, the break is only good for that session. Restarting Surface restores the "closed" environment. Two, the first app they chose to install is a SSH...

I'm not having Zune/DRM issues some have discussed here. Am I just lucky?

Please include something about managing duplicate entries that come up when trying to "Match" music. I have...

This did not work with my 720P monitor. When using Netflix and the Video app, I get a message complaining the screen size is too small. :-(

If I buy a CD or DVD no one is going to come into my home and take them away. Yet, if I buy a Music Video from Microsoft they think it is OK to take it away any time they want. It's a wonder...

This is less about the Live Login (which I like) and more about Windows 8 as a whole. The system is "Windows" and not "Window". Each day I see people using their Windows PC with...

Oh, Joy! We're mucking with Windows Explorer (WE) again. Where the ribbon brought everything out into the open; in Windows 7 WE put the most common functions are hidden in the context menu (right...

Wow! this could be the core of a new home-wide media system.
