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.....

Regarding your issues with the screen resolution, and in particular with Photoshop: what exactly is the issue with using the scaling setting in Windows? I'm assuming the UI elements in Photoshop...

Is there a feature within the OS (or via a 3rd party app) to save different start screen configurations?

I can think of two reasons this would be desirable.

1) Backup configurations...

The Roku allows you to get local network content onto the lounge room TV very well. Unless all your media is indexed in and playable by iTunes, it is much better than the Apple TV for this task....

Will be particularly interested to learn if you have any problems running a 13" laptop at FHD (1920 x 1080). I've always assumed that is the upper limit of what Windows desktop can handle without...

@JonF, I think the point you make is a good one.

Actually, I've always felt that it would be very helpful to the reader if tech reviews were accompanied by a statement from the reviewer...

That's a bit of a stretch. Most of these new features are just catching up on what's already been available on other mobile OSs for a while.

Are the keyboard web suffix buttons location optimized? e.g. if you are in the UK do you get a .co.uk option instead of .us?

Don't forget Office 365 University.
$80 for 4 years!
Amazing deal for university students (and staff).

Seems like a very impressive update. When I tried WP about 6 months ago, I decided I couldn't live with certain limitations compared to Android & iOS. But the updates in 8.1, especially the...
