I'm with you, Paul. I've tried using my wife's Galaxy and I just don't get it.
The OS is clunky and hard to navigate. Things that should take one or two taps end up taking five or six....

I remember when Roku first started getting popular, Amazon made them their official streaming device and offered many incentives to buy one. I guess that partnership is dead.

Honestly, who...

When I play multiplayer I never plug a headset in and mute my Kinect. I have never heard or seen anything offensive. There are ways to ignore all the chatter.

Whatever happened to your quest to remove Apple devices from your home?
On a similar note, I understand where you come from. I recently made the extremely difficult decision to get rid of...

Did you really mean to write "Avatard"? If so, that is hilarious. If not, I think you jut at accidentally coined a new term.

I'm always a huge Microsoft fan. My 360 has over 180 games between retail and arcade.
I got a Day One ... One and couldn't use it because the Blu-Ray drive was bad. The latest system update...

Perhaps someone can explain why anyone would want to watch someone else playing a videogame?

Samsung makes some of the most boring phones style wise. And Android is a mess. I'd rather go to Apple if Windows Phone dies than Google and Samsung. Samsung's skin of Android is such a chore to...

Well, I was one of the few Day One adopters whose Blu-ray drive was trashed when I got the console, so I got a free copy of Ryse.

Sounds like an interesting topic for the next book.
Thank you Paul for giving up so much of your time for the Microsoft faithful.
On another note, I want an Outlook.com shirt!

You think Sinofsky is sitting in a darkened corner somewhere on a Surface Pro running a non upgraded Windows 8?

Just played with it. I wasn't even planning on ever using it, but your article got me intrigued. My first impression is wow! The playlists are such a fun way to listen to music. I wasn't planning...

Roku still offers the most channels and the best bang for the buck.

Gears of War one was unique, breathtaking, engaging and difficult. The other two were repetitive and the story line really went south. That being said, I really prefer Gears to Halo.

I find the Surface Pro to be much better as a tablet than a PC. As you said, the screen is just too small. My eyes get enough strain, I don't need to squint at my PC.

Nothing like an ad in between my turn by turn directions! Thank,s Google!

While I am craving an Xbox One right now, I think I'll hold off. I have about 15 360 games I still have yet to get around to playing.
Plus, I can just see a few years down the line Microsoft...

I felt silly talking to the 360 when Kinect first came out. Now I mostly use it for videos when I am too lazy to bring the remote to the couch. It's easy to say "Xbox, pause" but yes, it still...

Monday, November 25, 2013 - 1:41pm

Very recently I sold all of my discs for 360 games and bought the digital counterparts.
Digital downloads are preferable to me because they take up no physical space and it keeps all of my...

Gee, where are all those commenters who say Paul is just a Microsoft fanboy with an undying hatred for Apple?
Great, honest review, Paul. As much a fan of Microsoft as I am, the iPad is a no...

My brother got his yesterday I went over to check it out, and I must say it is certainly the least excited I have ever been to see a new console.
It has the same boring UI as the PS3, things...

Tuesday, November 12, 2013 - 4:43pm

I have a feeling the next few weeks worth of updates are going to sadden me deeply.
I have a huge backlog of 360 games to play and told myself I won't get an Xbox One until I get through...

Friday, November 1, 2013 - 1:19am

It's one game. Their will be a new one next year.

Sunday, October 20, 2013 - 6:41pm

Oh wait, there's a Mayday button! :)

With Amazon releasing Kindle apps on iPads, Android tablets and Windows 8, these devices make less and less sense each year. I'm hugely invested in the Amazon ecosystem, but they provide no...

Thanks for posting this. I would have had no idea. This is especially important with Surface Pro and its terrible battery life.

Friday, October 4, 2013 - 3:10pm

I'm glad they improved the constant glow of the old Paperwhite. I had been holding onto my basic Kindle for that reason. Looks like it is time to upgrade.
And I agree, Paul, reading on a...

That it took them a year to get this app done right is a joke.
I have been using it on my Surface mainly because it is touch friendly but, yeah, it is a joke.

Tuesday, September 17, 2013 - 1:58pm

I still find it very interesting that Xbox is the one logo that didn't get modernized.
By having a symbol for a logo with Bing, Microoft is just following trends of logos vs. text. See the...

This could be the keyboard and mouse setup I need. For years I have been using a laptop and my fingers are starting to take a beating.
Thanks for the honest review!
