If Microsoft can't convince users of the advantages of full screen apps in Win8 Modern UI on desktop PCs, then they should give us back resizable windows apps.

Likewise, I find it odd that I can't set different ringtones for some contacts and have a "default" ringtone for all the others in Windows Phone 7. Maybe I'm missing something here but this is a...

Restore the Start button in Windows 8's Desktop, let people boot directly to Desktop & allow multiple Modern UI app windows to run, cascade, tile & be resized.

The solution ought to be the ability to see what's in Other and have the option to deleted content automatically from the phone after it is auto-uploaded to SkyDrive.

I might sign up for Netflix here in Canada when the full series of 24 is added. Apparently its available on American Netflix. An rewatch of X-Files episodes that include the Cigarette Smoking...

I had set Firefox as my default browser for years, used it whenever I wasn't required to use Internet Explorer and resisted Chrome. However, bookmark synching works very well in Chrome across my...

I miss the sombrero of episode 300 but at least Paul wore it for the entirety of What The Tech.

There's an update for the Twitter app on WP7 too.

A small Windows 8 irritant: it's either very difficult or it's impossible to pin the Power tile in the Settings tab to the Start screen. Since the Start screen is supposedly the same as a...

I'm curious to see if Calendar will get the Modern UI look or still be Hotmail Calendar with Blue.

Microsoft is behaving like a sports team general manager that keeps playing an an expensive free agent (Skype) a they just signed who's proving to be a did. Meanwhile he benches a good but quiet...

I agree with euskalzabe although I'm a late adopter of Windows Phone 7.5 having switched from a BlackBerry to a Lumia 710 in June 2012. To keep my monthly bill to a reasonable $30/month ($1/day) I...

I'm looking forward to a Surface Pro 2.0 when many of these issues are hopefully resolved.

Thursday, February 7, 2013 - 11:26

The ability to run Linux isn't a big deal to most Americans but it allows the Surface Pro to be considered by governments & militaries around the world (China, Russia, US Dept of Defence......

I think it's unfair to say the iPad is just a media consumption device or toy. There's a good range of content-creation & productivity apps available for it like Splice and Microsoft OneNote...

Even more interesting would've been a Windows 8 and Surface Pro release in early October followed by a Surface RT and Surface Phone (running Windows Phone 8) release in late October.

I suppose there's a chance these price points will be reduced in autumn, 2013 if Windows 8 sales are not lower than what Microsoft had projected internally.

If you saw or are planning to see the movie "Lincoln" and want to read some primary source material, I recommend "Speeches and Letters of Abraham Lincoln, 1832 - 1865". It's free on the Kindle...

As long as software continues to be developed & supported for existing Windows XP, Vista & 7 computers it's safe to assume Windows 8 and RT sales will be slow. The safe choice for...

My tech resolution for 2013 is to squeeze as much usability as possible from my Lumia 710 running WP7 with only WiFi (no data plan). It has Office, Kindle, Youtube, Dropbox & TuneIn apps and a...

If Nokia stock tanks in 2013 then it's reasonable for MS to takeover the company a la Google's Motorola play. Then MS uses Nokia assets to create and distribute Surface Phones. This may be...

Can any photo from my Skydrive be set as the background for the Start screen, and perhaps rotate through them, like a Windows XP/vista/7 Desktop background?

Thanks for the link @SteveCR48, looks like I'll be using Google Reader daily until one day its mothballed. Then I'll just have articles of interest emailed to me.

Friday, December 14, 2012 - 18:49

Wow, good thing the only Google service I rely on is Reader.

Comeback? Maybe IE needs a theme song: "Don't call it a comeback, I been here for years... Mama Said Knock You Out"

My Windows Phone 7.8.1 wish-list includes orientation lock, to keep the screen in portrait or landscape display, and a screen capture function. Maybe there are apps which could be developed?

I was a late adopter of BlackBerry & then a late adopter of WP7. This behavior by Microsoft encourages me to a be a late adopter of Android.

Map & navigation apps won't factor into my decision the next time I purchase a phone unless I've lost my sturdy four-year old Garmin Nuvi GPS for which I bought lifetime updates. But it's sad...

Yes print ads currently out there reinforce the notion that WP does not matter. MS is playing catch-up & the future is uncertain for WP. I've used a discount Lumia 710 since June but could...
