now we know why MS didn't wait for core M on surface: it just isn't up to the task of the professional. it would make a great surface 2/RT replacement however.

wp design principles were done for 800x480 screens. today I run a 1080p device and the words still clip because MSFT uses the equivalent of a 700pt font in the hopes wasting my space will somehow...

prediction:

-will be discontinued in a year due to lack of interest and android wear will dominate the market with 80% of similar bands, apple watch with the remaining 19, and MS fit band...

"google tv sucks". he finally said it. I don't know why andrew kept pushing that mega flop so much. He's the only guy using it now and google launched it 3 times and 3 times nobody cared. It would...

so you take google's? Off course it doesn't mean unlimited in the sense that you can't put more data than fits in all the world's servers. But that's not really something they need to worry about...

office touch for windows before then? I was getting used to second class citizen treatment from the company that wants me to buy their services. cuz you know nothing sells you on it like that.

hmm, so what seems to be holding back windows phone is windows phone underlying OS capabilities. why does everything always end up coming back to Terry M and Joe B. Why are they still employed?

Monday, October 27, 2014 - 13:53

such are the claims google makes, and with PCs being as cheap now thanks for windows with bing, and office 365 for education, nobody is sure what google offers anymore. Basically office always is...

-A lot MORE people don't really get what you mean by terrible office software. It is the world's #1 office software. So, what is a LOT of people to you?

-You don't have to trust MSFT with...

are YOU serious? docs is a mediocre set of web apps which are outmatched by office online web apps, AND google has NO match for the big native experiences you get with the full suit of native apps...

sadly if they added one thing to this story, they would have a winner: "windows first".

but the problem is now that iOS/Android treat their customers the best, while windows treats them...

I think the one that I hate the most is the multi desktop transition animation. it is so jarring and long that it kills my productivity. If there is a way via a reg hack to JUST disable that one,...

why would an SP4 be ridiculous? the new broadwell chip would fit in there and give lower temps and higher perf, and nicer battery life times.

it would be ridiculous not to!!!!

Wednesday, October 22, 2014 - 10:56

the animations are bad. really bad.

ha ha, don't get used to it, if Nadella's plans are any indication, the future for microsoft products on windows looks bleak at best, with office for windows 8 being scheduled to 2015, and office...

"build services that are first class solutions for all customers"

ahem, no you don't, in particular, the more closely one aligns to microsoft, the worse it gets. Get their OS and most of...

it's too bad that they don't apply this "common sense" logic to windows phone. I makes me LOL when I open windows phone and the text is so HUGE on a 1080p screen that doesn't fit...because you...

Monday, October 13, 2014 - 14:15

It sounds like great news, too bad however the rest of microsoft isn't really on board with the platform team. Nadella's "everything but windows first" strategy is pushing people away towards the...

Monday, October 13, 2014 - 10:28

"mobile first, windows last" isn't really the point here, the point is that windows phone and windows 8/10 still lack a keyboard API to allow these apps to be made.

Clearly this speaks to...

Thursday, October 9, 2014 - 11:46

I'd love to hear you explain why they shipped the mac first. With the iphone you argue Satya is a "realist" so somehow that means giving the slap in the face to windows users makes sense...in some...

Thursday, October 9, 2014 - 11:20

great tip. thanks.

Thursday, October 9, 2014 - 11:18

too bad they don't make the same statement about their platform which often doesn't get apps at all, like office sway...etc. It's like saying: "buy our hardware with confidence and hope we bother...

Wednesday, October 8, 2014 - 10:52

well, if microsoft can't support it's own platforms as first class citizens, why would anybody trust their products? sway will flop no doubt, and longer term, windows relevancy within microsoft...

welcome to the "immersive app". That pit of hell lie where you were so immersed in the app that the commands didn't matter. off course you're immersed in hell when this happens.

Tuesday, October 7, 2014 - 13:07

it has been working since the last release.

Tuesday, October 7, 2014 - 13:06

In windows 10 there is no difference so there is no need to think any longer about modern vs win32. The reason you won't see it running in the modern environment besides the horrible API...

Tuesday, October 7, 2014 - 13:04

correct. causal and professional don't mix.

Tuesday, October 7, 2014 - 10:21

that sidebar UI is really going to hunt them. I don't see a way to fix it other than re-doing it as a pop up and even so, most developers foolish enough to follow this rat hole of settings...

Monday, October 6, 2014 - 11:00

why did you install the technical preview on your touch device? they told you this was for non touch devices silly. you ignored their advise and now you have to tell yourself: read the article....

Thursday, October 2, 2014 - 13:16

if I can use any BT keyboard why does this need an OS switch? and btw, if they don't even have enough fait in their own products to support their own phone, why would I every use anything they...
