The reason the Nexus devices do not have a Micro SD card is they believe it simplifies the operating system for the user. Right now you have a system partition in Android and a micro SD card...

Since I got my first Nexus 7 (2012) at launch it has reduced my use of a desktop by 50-75% - going through e-mails, surfing the web, doing the bills, etc has now become a couch potato exercise...

The other hidden part of the Nexus 5 is the KitKat Android 4.4 which returns fire on the Lumia 520/521 by including support for 512 MB devices - Google wants to have good to excellent performance...

I know Paul is a big fan of the new Office Subscription BUT as a home user I find I don't need Office for much of anything and all of the office alternatives are good enough (LibreOffice,...

I think everyone is missing the real issue. The question is "Is this a good/great value?" At $577 (32 GB/12 GB free) or $677 (64 GB/34 GB free) vs. the competition - the ASUS T100 Bay Trail x86...

The question about all of these devices (which I guess we'll have to call WOA - Windows on ARM or Windows RT (which MS is attempting to kill)) is what has changed to make them gain any market...

I can't see this sells directly against the iPad Air ($499, 16 GB - all 16 actually available) @ only ONE POUND. And if you want to use this or the Surface as a productivity device you are now...

While the Surface and Surface Pro are nicely designed pieces of hardware they didn't sell and Microsoft is going to find the profit margins in the non-Apple hardware space to be pretty slim....

While the design of this tablet is nice why would you buy this over an Asus T100 - a quad core Bay Trail x86 CPU with 64 GB Storage, keyboard, Office Home and Student (Word, Excel, Powerpoint, One...

While the 520 is a great bargain it's unfortunately only good if you can use a GSM carrier (ATT or TMo) because there is no Sprint or Verizon version. I do agree that it is the best bargain if...

If you're going after the sub 8" space then your competitors are the 7" Nexus 7 (2013) that has:
1.2MP front facing, fixed focus
5MP rear facing, auto focus
DIMENSIONS

I think we're missing out some facts.

1. The Chromebook is significantly cheaper (at the low end) than any Windows Laptop - the Samsung Model (with an Exynos ARM chip) is only $249 and the...

I don't have a copy of Office on my home computers because it is no longer needed. At the Office I am still using Office 2007 just for compatibility reasons with work - the feature set is still...

If you can get ahold of the .apk you can often sideload and it works fine. There are still a lot of apps that don't have tablet mode work just fine in Portrait but it still up to the developer...

If they start this out @ $499 again, it will be DOA. If it starts @ $349/$ 399 with a keyboard it might have a chance. As for the 8 inch it will be competing against an iPad Mini @ $329 (...

The problem for Nokia long term is low cost ($99) devices are also low margin and will make it hard to turn a profit long term if the majority of devices are in 520/521 price point.

The only problem is the Yoga RT is not being sold any longer (except in closeouts).

Wednesday, August 14, 2013 - 8:33pm

Not worth it with only one PC that needs it. Might be interested if they had a 2/3 PC limit.

Saturday, July 27, 2013 - 7:55pm

ptyork,

Disagree with you 100%. I have a similar app on my phone, Lose it, and the ease of use if you want to count calories works great. However, the problem is not just with the top 50...

Saturday, July 27, 2013 - 7:44pm

Actually I think the current system is even worse than that. For people who do like the Surface RT I'd bet 95% of them are using it as netbook replacement - most of the time they use it in...

I have had a Nexus 7 (16 GB WiFi for $249) since launch and I use it almost every day instead of going to my desktop to check e-mail, stream MLB games and occasionally watch video. It's been as...

So, in a day and age where we're getting away from cables you still have to attach your phone to a PC to get the full resolution image. It should at least sync to your PC when you're on your home...

Actually, given Nokia's special status as a WP8 partner I would think it will lead the other OEMs to give up on WP8 (the HTC 8X is a very nice phone and it has done nothing to help HTC's bottom...

As the full Windows 8 OS becomes faster on the x86 systems (Haswell variants) it's really hard to justify buying a limited RT system. The new 8' or less variants now include Office Home and...

As a retired military member I am really disappointed at the "Buy an XBox 360" comment to military members who have, will have to and will continue to serve our country being told to buy 8 year...

Saturday, June 15, 2013 - 1:58pm

And the idea you have a virtual license is already contradicted by the fact that I have had a number of movies "Disappear" from my XBox Videos section because the license had expired from the...

Monday, June 10, 2013 - 4:20pm

Very disappointing that they're not either beefing up the storage or lowering the price for the 360. We do very little gaming so I'd be really interested if the new XBox will have good enough...

Friday, June 7, 2013 - 4:57pm

What bothers me about this is since I see no use (for me or my family) for the Kinect sensor and will probably always have it off AND it is not required for the XBox One to operate then WHY is it...

Monday, June 3, 2013 - 8:38pm

If they put this hardware into the Surface RT they would sell a "Ton" of Surface's @ say $499 with touch cover included. By including Office on a full Windows 8 machine they're setting a somewhat...

Monday, June 3, 2013 - 7:31pm

I agree, there are a lot of times I want strictly local search and don't want that integrated search experience and it seems like lately (Windows 8) MS is becoming more and more like
