Also, I don't put any security on any of home based devices (tablets, extra phones w/o a sim (Nokia 520)) as I have bigger problems if someone breaks the physical security of my house than whether...

Have to agree on the 512 MB vs 1 GB on the handset. While I really like the value of the the 520 there is a noticeable delay when waking it up (2-3" resuming) or when switching apps. If the Moto...

Even after the bump it still looks like it is trailing Sony every month so that 2-3 million unit deficit is getting larger every month, not smaller. I would still love to see an XBox set top box...

Paul, if the numbers you are reporting are correct (and the 5 million Windows Phones Handsets is correct and the highest to date) that must mean that there are only around 15 - 20 million Windows...

Paul, it's amazing to me that WP fans love to talk about Android fragmentation and ignore WP fragmentation with 7.8 (no compatibility with 8.0+ apps and starting to lose support from developers...

It's really hard to see what would "jump start" further growthin market share for Windows Phone now that is a "mature" platform and still has only 3-4% share in the USA (while it has double digit...

Office is still not compelling @ $70/year. $2/month for 1 TB is if I needed that much.

Thursday, June 19, 2014 - 5:51pm

I think people are starting to become more wary of Ecosystem lock in and Amazon is starting to look that way also.

Thursday, June 19, 2014 - 5:47pm

Even @ $70/year I still believe Office is overkill for most individuals since (if you need it) you can get Office Home and Business for $130 and you make it up in only 2 years. As for continuous...

It's still hard to believe they released a (supposed) media centered gaming system that doesn't include the ability to stream from a Windows 7/8 PC or Windows Home Server. It should have been easy...

First impression is a 64 GB device with only 28.2 free out of the box - obviously no 32 GB device is planned. All of these devices sure look like they will take off with Broadwell as Bay Trail is...

Maybe I missed something but the Schizophrenia of Windows 8 continues. I had to go into the Windows Store (which I never do as a desktop user) in order to find the Windows 8.1 update. It was 3.6...

I know UEFI is supposed to make for a more secure environment but so far it has been a bear trying to change hard drives from traditional to an SSD. My cloning software (various - all worked well...

I believe this will be an excellent competitor in the touchscreen ultrabook category but really is too big/heavy to replace a 7-8" tablet that is only going to weigh 3/4 lb. I would bet that most...

Sunday, June 1, 2014 - 6:21pm

While it could theoretically replace a tablet why would you forgo a 7" talbet that only weighs 12 oz - it sure seems like cutting your nose off to spite your face. People who own this are still...

IT seems like the biggest question is will people "move up" to a higher end Windows Phone from the Lumia 520. Because in the long run I think MS wants to make money on its Nokia handset business...

Tuesday, May 27, 2014 - 6:40pm

While it is lighter it is still not light or small enough to compete with the tablets (either iPad Air (9.7") @ 1.0 lbs, iPad Mini (7.9") or the various 7-8" Android Tablets (Nexus 7/.75 lbs or LG...

It's obvious they don't want to sell a "low end" Surface Pro 3 because the lack of options for the i3 is disappointing. My sweet spot would be a core i3, 128 GB SSD and 8 GB of RAM for $899 or $...

Friday, May 23, 2014 - 6:35pm

I think most people carrying this device will still have a 7 or 8" tablet along for reading so it really doesn't eliminate a device - just make this a lighter ultrabook. I believe most people...

Why only USB 3.0 memory sticks and not a full fledged USB 3.0 external drive. With the size of games approaching 40 GB you are going to use up the 500 GB (which is probably only about 400 GB...

Wednesday, May 21, 2014 - 4:36pm

I'd say the bigger problem is basically misleading about the price points. For all intents and purposes the Touch Cover is a mandatory accessory that essentially raises the price of the Surface...

Monday, May 12, 2014 - 5:04pm

I currently have a Lumia 520 to use Windows Phone 8.1 (beautiful device, great value @ $60) - too small for everyday use. My main phone is an LG G2 - great device and at the upper limit for use...

Sunday, May 11, 2014 - 7:10pm

This is a perfect illustration of the huge challenge Windows Phone has ahead of it - it is so late to the game that Android 4.1 and later handsets are very good to outstanding devices and it is...

Monday, April 21, 2014 - 7:08pm

Paul, I don't see why you've missed the obvious point about picture taking - while the OS (Win 8.1) doesn't need additional processor power for most OS tasks, when you take a picture the...

Friday, April 18, 2014 - 6:48pm

The other issue you see for Microsoft is they've taken so long to get Windows Phone up to feature parity (notification center) and its advantages over Android are more a question of taste that...

Thursday, April 17, 2014 - 7:10pm

Get the wireless charging cover so you don't lose the waterproof/dustproof certification of the S5. I know you have some Qi Chargers around and I'm sure the USB port cover is a pain since it...

I would love to have a $99 XBox video set top box that had Netflix and DLNA streaming in it. I would happily stop using the XBox 360 as a set top box as much as I do.

Sunday, April 6, 2014 - 8:44pm

Paul, the longer I play with the G Pad 8.3 the more I think this is a real sweet spot for Tablets. Moving up from the Nexus 7 you get really spoiled by the extra screen space (as with bigger...

Sunday, March 30, 2014 - 9:17pm

I tried out the Dell and you really see the shortcomings from the bargain price - the 1280x800 screen is washed out, the Intel CPU can't hold a candle to the Snapdragon 600 so it is slow and the...

Sunday, March 30, 2014 - 9:15pm

Paul, wrote to you once about this and I believe you made an excellent purchase - it will do what you want and most of the LG modifications won't really matter to your core use of the device. I...
