I picked up a Surface Pro 1 for $500 a few months after Pro 2 came out. I am now invested in the Surface Pro 1&2 world with keyboards, dock, etc. To upgrade to the 3, I would have to rebuy...

Media center is dead. Has been for years.

Achievement snap! Thank God! It's insane having to see what achievement I just unlocked by opening a new dashboard screen.

One other feature I'd like to see is the ability to organize the...

As always I enjoy the info, insight and humor every week.
Thank you!

A handful of games look great, but Microsoft really needed to provide a compelling reason to pick up an Xbox One besides games. A lot of gamers aren't buying because of the whole framerate issue....

I'm not sure why Amazon would want to get into the phone market. Talk about an overcrowded marketplace.
Windows Phone is an amazing OS that pretty much no one uses because it came too late...

Good. Barnes & Noble and the Nook are dead men walking at this point. Makes no sense to invest in either of those.

In regards to the Twitter feed, I can't think of a more annoying way to watch TV.
I like to actually sit and watch a show without distractions.
But I guess I'm old.

There is a similar problem with the Surface RT and Surface Pro. Every now and then the device will just not turn on. I was told by Microsoft to hold down the power button for 10 seconds and then...

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

Thursday, April 10, 2014 - 00:39

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.

Tuesday, March 4, 2014 - 15:55

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?

Tuesday, February 25, 2014 - 03:56

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?

Friday, January 31, 2014 - 00:29

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.
