"Some have suggested to me that this device, like a Chromecast, would be a reasonable travel solution, as you could potentially plug it into the TV in your hotel room or whatever and access your...

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...

It's a shame they don't offer this with a 1080p screen. For this reason (and the silly adaptive keys) I'm getting the slightly chunkier T440s instead.

Monday, April 7, 2014 - 3:46pm

I'm quite interested in this.

At the moment I have both the Roku & Apple TV because neither device completely satisfies my needs (quite probably because I'm not in the US).

"more efficient on each of these device types and will be customizable so it works like you want it to"

I hope so. This is absolutely essential if they're going to perist with this hybrid...

I was never really bothered about the loss of the start menu. But I do quite like the look of this new old start menu..... I reckon having access to live tiles on the desktop will make them much...

In Office 2013, go into options>save, and check the box to save to computer by default

Sunday, March 30, 2014 - 1:50pm

If you write any more about this, one thing I'd quite like to know is how good is the multiple-user accounts feature on Android tablets compared to Windows?

Also, regarding the expansion SD...

Office 365 is great value and I appreciate it a lot because I have multiple devices.

But if Microsoft don't provide a cheaper option for people whose only personal computing device is their...

I felt she needed to slow down. But pretty good.

Sunday, March 23, 2014 - 2:23pm

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:...

@pthurrott,

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!

fearful,

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 outlook.com and use several other Microsoft applications and services so it might be worth using outlook.com. 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...

Tuesday, February 4, 2014 - 7:07am

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:...

Sunday, February 2, 2014 - 1:45pm

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...
