If I were using this strictly as a laptop at a desk or maybe in my lap, I would say the size is great.
However, I use my current Surface Pro as a tablet in my lap while sitting on the couch...

Tablet or laptop? Let's just say I use my Surface Pro as a touch screen tablet in my lap on the couch about 90% of the time.

To be honest, the kickstand on my Surface tablets started out as great features, but then I found a case with kickstand-like features that already do what the SP3 kickstand does. Haven't use the...

I love the form factor and the note taking ability would be great for a writer on the go. However, I'm still not sold on holding a 12" tablet in my hands, especially horizontally. The original...

I'm not getting rid of Kinect. I love the voice recognition stuff and my wife has been using Xbox Fitness for a while.
I was just complaining about the horrible gestures. Pinching and...

I like to use Kinect on XB1 for instant on, sign in recognition and pausing videos. I never use gestures, though. They pretty much never work.
Plus, Kinect Sports Rivals got terrible reviews...

This should have happened five years ago.
Hopefully this will help push the Xbox One as a true living room set top box

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 shirt!

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

Thursday, January 30, 2014 - 23:29

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.

Friday, January 24, 2014 - 02:43

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 - 12:41

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 - 15:43

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...

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