Is there a web page with the table of contents (to look at before downloading)?

Regarding EverNote to OneNote migration. Please do write about best method to do this if you look into it.

I found the following tool, but it seems like it no longer works:...

Another desirable ultrabook in the 13-14" size range without an SD card slot is the Dell XPS 13. It's lacked the slot for the last 2 or 3 iterations so I guess in the case of...

Looking forward to your thoughts on the adaptive function keys, the keyboard layout changes, and the gesture controls.

I was seriously considering getting this laptop too. But I wish they...

OneNote free on all platforms, web clipper on all major browsers, and some other new features.

Good job Microsoft!

Can't guess what the reason is for Lukar, but I have a major privacy-related annoyance with using my Microsoft account to login to my laptop. I hate it that the Windows login...

Can I suggest you include a gmail switcher guide.

I like the look of and use several other Microsoft applications and services so it might be worth using But I've...

I've got the tray icon and tray icon animation back. But no file/folder icon overlays in file explorer during sync or otherwise.

Friday, February 7, 2014 - 7:22pm

Personally I feel the desktop taskbar is one of the best things about Windows UI when compared to the next major desktop OS (OS X). It's great for multitasking. But it would make sense to make it...

"Sadly, there are still no sync overlays on the OneDrive folder or its subfolders in File Explorer."

Is there any animation / sync status information on the desktop notification area icon...

I look forward to an in-depth assessment of changes to SkyDrive integration. In particular, I'm keen to know if the returned notification icon for SkyDrive animates according to sync status.

Is this a limitation of the Xbox One? My Xbox 360 sees all the media that is indexed by the media server on the Synology NAS.

Monday, February 3, 2014 - 6:10am

Just thought of another thing worth mentioning about Synology. They make their official smartphone apps available for Windows Phone:...

I've been using a simple 2-bay Synology NAS (DS213) for about a year and am very happy with it. I like the fact that it small, quiet, and has low energy consumption. The admin console is accessed...

Although I don't own one, this is my understanding of how chromecast streaming currently works too.

I do hope they add the ability to mirror local content from your device though. For...

Excellent name.

Surely even Microsoft can't screw up the fantastic promotional opportunity that this name lends itself to. Surely.

"Skype Wi-Fi app that helps you automatically connected to Skype Wi-Fi hotspots and use your Skype credit to pay for Wi-Fi-based calls by the minute."

It looks like the app enables for...

I'd fall on the PC-based hybrid side, basically using the machine as a traditional laptop and then flipping the screen over when I want to make handwritten notes, annotations, or sketches with an...

Agree 100%

Wednesday, January 22, 2014 - 12:51pm

I dislike switching from the desktop to the start screen when I want to check if my live tiles (particularly email) are showing new items.

When it comes to desktop-metro integration, one...

@DaveNestor: Take the machine/s offline?

Monday, January 13, 2014 - 7:27am

Although I can't see myself using a Chromebook, based on what I've read online (not tried one yet myself) I'm not so dismissive of their value for casual home PC users. I offer a few comments on...

The reports on this we're referring to US rather than global market. The analysts also contradicted each other - one said increase, the other said decline.

Don't know about crisis averted. In my country (UK), Lumia 520 is now down to 4th on Amazon's best-seller list for SIM-free smartphones. Both Moto G models sit above it.

All this talk of opinions reminds me of this scene from The Good Wife:

The Spotify app is excellent on other platforms but poor on WP. In the WP version, there's no discovery section, and there's no integration with A poor Spotify app is one of the main...

As a non-gamer, this is what Microsoft would need to do to get me interested in Xbox and Xbox media services:

1. Scrap the requirement for Xbox live membership to access 3rd party media...

I was referring to the 13.3" Macbook Air.

The 11.6" Macbook Air is $999, so only $100 more than the 11.6" Yoga. But the Yoga has an i3, rather than i5 processor. Another competing product...

I would say there's one other major problem with iPads: lack of multi-user (or even guest user) support. But at the moment I put up with the limitations because of the quality and breadth of the...

full Windows 8, instead of Windows RT, on an 8" device does seem odd to me as there is no way I would want to rely on such a device for work. However, as you point out, a potential...
