I doubt that this next version of Windows (8.1 Update 1) will have that name. Just Like WP8 Update 1, you wouldn't say you are running "Windows Phone 8 Update 1" you say "Windows Phone 8" or the...

Love the details about what this device can do and does not have. Do you plan on reviewing the Toshiba Encore?

I have a feeling that bing is left lowercase because of the search engine practice of typing in a query lowercase, as opposed to typing in a query uppercase. Pure, simple, bing.

For me, winsupersite is the only source that when you click on an article within the Bing News app, it brings you to IE and displays the article there. Which means it's the same as pinning...

In the Taskbar and Navigation properties, is there an option to "turn off" or hide the new Start button?

The start screen on my 8X:

That is true, however a voice (or text) search simply titled "movies" will bring up a Movies near (Your city, State) within the Web section. Pressing that will bring up this:...

Wow, iOS 7 looks like cotton candy to me.

I believe it's called "tabbed" browsing on the phone because there is only one instance of Internet Explorer, or Safari (mobile) running at one time. You cannot have two IE's running at once....

Are you referring to Hotmail Plus? The $20 per year "personal preference" that removes ads found in If so, it would be inaccurate to think that Microsoft would provide these users...

How much do you know about Leo?

I don't see why you would want to resize a metro-style app to a specific dimension anyway. Think about it, if you are using a metro app you are probably only focused on that one...

In regards to the Windows 8 Metro, Modern UI interface naming, I believe Microsoft has decided on a new, final name: Windows 8 Design Language. To me it sounds real nice, and I believe Paul...

Yes, this is possible.

It's a hybrid device.

As I understand it is up to the carrier, not the manufacturer. Is this correct?

Nothing for my Trophy either, I also tried the Zune cable trick with no luck.

No, the upgrade media contains code that is not suited for a clean installation. Also, if this were possible, why would Microsoft offer any other option?

Saturday, January 19, 2013 - 15:55

All that really means is that Microsoft set their expectation too high, it does not mean Windows 8 is not selling well.

If you feel the need to compare it to the Windows 7 launch, 7 was...

For what it's worth, an iOS upgrade was not always free..

I can see your frustration, but you also have to consider the time the developer is committing to write each game for each platform.

I agree, I am confused as to why they created the second name, but Microsoft may have picked PLAY because it sounds like Google Play. Google Play a popular and expanding service indeed.

This is actually possible if you are shutting down via hibernate!

Very useful article, thank you Paul. But I had no idea computers could hear!

"...the big change is that the previously-separate address bar (which was at the top) and app bar (which was at the bottom) are now a single control, located at the bottom of the screen. "

I wonder if Wakoopa is still in the collection?

Sunday, November 11, 2012 - 11:24

Yes, ads are in this version.
