I really don't care for any sort of touch screen on my computers, I have a phone and a Nexus 7 where touch input makes sense.

I'd much rather see a proper laptop with a high quality, matte...

@Kurisu Yamato

Have you used any Windows OS past XP? Cause in Vista and 7, which cover, oh, the past 7 years of Windows between them, mousing through some arcane folder structure has been...

Users asking for the Start Menu very likely (almost certainly) have a keyboard attached to whatever computing device they chose to use Windows on.

For that scenario,...

This is like complaining Kia didn't innovate on the '4-wheels-paradigm' of other car manufacturers when they went global.

There's very limited value in doing something different for...

And now you can enjoy what you like about Metro apps even when you're working on the desktop. And they can be windowed, too!

More options to enjoy what you already like - isn't that great...

And you can just keep using your tile world. Nothing will change for you.

Isn't that great? Everyone given a proper choice in these matters, rather than Mr Sinovski telling us what we, the...

Looks good, though the first picture has me worried that the design might get unwieldy if too many live tiles are selected / shown.

Wohoo, my Windows Azur quip made it onto both WW and WTT! Love ya, Paul! :-)

You have to give it to Microsoft, few companies would be so bonkers to remove the half of the name that people actually know how to pronounce.

Now that you have your power cover in hand, how would you compare the two contemporary pairings (w/ Surface 2 and Surface 2 Pro) with a 'proper' Ultrabook, or a Macbook Air?

Wednesday, March 19, 2014 - 4:49am

I have no idea why I would use any one of these wearables and to what end, but I can't help but find the Moto 360 design hopelessly appealing.

I'm in love.

I'm not a fan of the N5's weight distribution, it feels top-heavy and would probably feel better with 8-10g added somewhere in its lower half. (The N4 feels better to me, especially when compared...

Why is this device almost 15% thicker and 30% heavier than the very comparably speced Nexus 5? (not to mention the price difference, obviously)

Tuesday, March 4, 2014 - 3:19pm

Apple makes money by selling devices. Apple also makes money when you buy something through their infrastructure. Apple might even make some money from you using an app. (Is Iads still a thing?) "...

"Why don't you (and Google, as well as Paul), break down the market by those metrics I state above? Wouldn't that put things in a different light?"

You didn't even read the article, did you...

Tuesday, March 4, 2014 - 10:53am

It always struck me as odd that the company that couldn't care less about its devices being used is touting that figure.

Then again, they're being slapped silly in the category they do care...

Monday, March 3, 2014 - 11:50am

Oh, Apple cares very much about market share, they even touted it in keynotes back in the day.

Unfortunately, market share has long since become Android's strong suit, and much like number...

"I never liked you anyway!"

Come on, even playing the emotionally (and amorously) challenged teenager in jest is just plain annoying.

I don't get it, this dude, and this team, has managed to go nowhere (backwards, really) in 3 or 4 years in the mobile market, what makes them "the right people" to do anything to Windows proper?...

Friday, February 21, 2014 - 7:24am

In my mind, I see Microsoft realising their failure in mobile and tablets, coming up with forcing Metro on Windows users as the least unlikely scenario (among the highly unlikely and downright...

Monday, February 17, 2014 - 7:32am

You might want to consider that Windows' strength is the cheap PCs running it, demonising those and the manufacturers actually offering hardware people are buying is supremely silly when most of...

One can only hope that her remarks are in no relation to the internal thinking at Microsoft. Cause if they are, Microsoft will be irrelevant in no time.

Honestly, I don't even know why I...

How's multi-tasking with the Baytrail Atom and only 2 GB of RAM? How many Chrome tabs can you keep open before it starts swapping?

Is it a real SSD or eMMC storage? And what are the speeds...

Monday, February 10, 2014 - 1:00pm

At 60+ | 34 | 4 currently, I don't think the tablets are in any danger of turning out much different than the mobile handsets market.

I'm sure a $200 Surface mini would help some, but how...

Am I to understand from your assertion, that Microsoft previously controlled the media to earn Windows 7 almost unanimous praise?

Always easy to blame "the competition" and "the media", but...
