Could you clarify this a bit further please?

What does "and other devices" mean? (does it include laptops and desktops)

How exactly do they generate usage stats? If its based on...

Isn't the Icon/930 the hero/flagship phone?
It's not a year old until Feb 2015.

Personally, what I find odd is that there is no Windows Phone equivalent of the Galaxy Note phablet,...

One relatively ancient iOS feature I've long wanted to see on the other mobile platforms is the system-wide define word feature:

I once tried using Mac as a Windows-only machine (via bootcamp). Aside from the issues mentioned in this article (drivers, battery life, etc) another reason I decided to switch to a proper Windows...

One thing that's a big attraction on the Mac side is the technical/after-sales support provided through Applecare (both over the phone and and Apple Store visits), which is far superior to any...

Whilst I don't use all Microsoft services (I prefer alternatives in some cases), I certainly do give every one of them a try. A key reason for considering them is the recent move to make them...

Don't know about Windows Phone, but on Windows 8 there are some quite good 3rd party clients emerging for Google services, e.g.

* Metromail (gmail client with labels support)

Really like where this seems to be going, especially notification center and virtual desktops.

Its a shame they didn't provide any screenshot for notification center settings. I hope there'...

Good move bringing to web and other platforms. Even though I like the Bing content apps on Windows, I stopped using them simply because I couldn't access them anywhere else.

jameskatt, I've decided using two desktop OS's is inefficient from a productivity point of view. I may have done it 5 years ago, but now that I also use different mobile OSs (iOs, Android), I can'...

I tried using a Mac for a few years up until a couple of years ago.

There are many things I liked about it. The ones that immediately come to mind are system preferences is much more...

Nice idea for a series of articles. Looking forward to it.

Aside from desktop Windows and Office (essential for my work), Microsoft's decision to embrace all platforms with its services is...

gorath - what about when others are also listening to the music. I don't want it cut out when I go elsewhere to make a phone call.

With Sonos (and I assume Spotify Connect) that doesn't...

With bluetooth and airplay you're streaming music from your phone/tablet to the speaker. In the case of web-based music, your phone/tablet is acting as a relay. I think with Spotify connect...

Yeah. For me, the big omission in OneDrive is the lack of file versioning support. That's what's keeping me on Dropbox.

The battery life thing is the main reason I can't see myself completely ditching my point and shoot camera just yet. When travelling, I need to prioritise battery life for GPS functionality.

Yeah SIM-only plans are great. Really cheap and allow you to get a new phone whenever you want. Especially good now that there are great phones that don't cost an arm and a leg when bought...

I live in UK and get 20 Mb/s down and 1 Mb/s up. Faster is available but have never really felt limited by what I have and haven't even checked how much it would cost to upgrade. I can certainly...

The reliance on a phone/tablet to control the Chromecast is a big limitation for me. In addition I don't like the fact that content is currently so tied to the individual in Google Play. With my...

Personally, I think its socially irresponsible not to protect your phone or tablet with a PIN or password.

How do you think your family/friends/acquaintances would feel if you lost your...

Picasa & Google+ photos for backup....why?

Aren't your photo backup needs covered by automated Crashplan and/or OneDrive uploads?

Interested to know if you feel there is an added...

Office 365 is indeed a confusing topic. Thanks for writing a primer article to try and clear some of it up.

I know the article touches on OneDrive, OneDrive for Business, and Sharepoint,...

A couple of things irritate me about OneDrive photos.

1. The reliance on archaic folder based organization. All other major cloud photo solutions (Google+, iCloud, Flickr, Dropbox) allow...

I disagree with your statement that OneDrive is the clear choice. If you want file version history support, OneDrive is still a no go.

(Dropbox and Google Drive have both had version...

Maybe in some cases the MBP Retina is the appropriate Apple device to compare this to (e.g. graphic professionals), but I think in a lot of cases a more appropriate comparison is with the Macbook...

Bigger screen + lighter and thinner is very impressive. Also like the multi angled kink stand and the lockscren support for the pen.

I'm not willing to give up a 14" screen laptop, but I'm...

I agree with Johnny. Tablets with digitisers have always appealed to me more for sketching/brainstorming/diagramming than for handwriting. Its much easier to get a quick idea or concept down with...

Couldn't they just add gesture support to the touch ID sensor?

I'm glad at least one high end smartphone provides user replaceable battery option. If the compromise for that is thin plastic on the back, I'll happily take it.

I'm guessing you don't have any control over ad content, but it's kind of funny that when I come to *winsupersite* today, the popup ad is for chromebook.....
