all nice updates it seems.

bing powers maps, cortana, analytics and a ton of services. bing is the brains for the MS data aggregation cloud and no doubt provides the data for every single one of MSN's articles. So no, bing...

and now MSN goes to the "uninstall" bin in all my PCs tablets and phones as I want absolutely nothing to do with the "yahoo" of the 90s that is MSN.

Tuesday, September 30, 2014 - 08:45

MSFT is slow at everything. even opening store lol. what a joke of a company.

Tuesday, September 30, 2014 - 07:59

adobe needs to ditch the bloated browser out the window, and let us stream the apps like office does, without a bloated browser from google.

Thursday, September 25, 2014 - 11:25

well, so in the mobile first world of mr Nadella, do maps don't count? because being hostage to Nokia and bing maps being the "RC cola" of maping services, are location services not enough mobile...

and samsung is ditching the chromebook in europe too which basically torpedoes chrome OS permanently.

Tuesday, September 23, 2014 - 14:24

very well said, although here is the thing: what makes you special is the fact you actually know about windows and MSFT stuff. There are a billion apple experts out there who trash MSFT all day....

Tuesday, September 23, 2014 - 14:17

they are just copying google, who last I checked was doing the same thing.

Monday, September 22, 2014 - 14:22

seems rather silly. at least on windows skype does that already and gives you the same options. the only difference is that it doesn't open the full skype UI? kind of pointless unless you're just...

Monday, September 22, 2014 - 11:13

I'd say the #1 feature is that they are not lead by Joe and Terry from Microsoft who both can't ship and what they ship ends up looking rather out date by the time they do.

why Satya hasn't...

The floating store apps look hot. They must be the first desktop apps for the modern user in decades after we have had to live with clumsy web apps which were suited for the 90s.

Thursday, September 18, 2014 - 09:03

use the disk cleanup tool to delete windows update temp files. that solves the problem. if you want more room, backup the recovery partition to an external drive and delete it from your internal...

Thursday, September 18, 2014 - 09:00

ok so unlike the majority of you, I actually have one so my opinion is actually relevant:

1) the screen is 1280x768 but whatever, it is a TN screen so it is exactly what you expect for 119...

Wednesday, September 17, 2014 - 20:15

Perfectly ok for store apps. Who says too low? Bloatdroid this ain't.

Wednesday, September 17, 2014 - 20:13

Why? It's cheap. Perfect for kids or distractions. If you want to pay for specs, you missed the point.

Tuesday, September 16, 2014 - 13:48

Amazing, I agree, microsoft cares about its own platforms. I expect this from apple and google, who decided if they don't care about OSX and chromeOS, even when not holding a big market, they must...

Tuesday, September 16, 2014 - 13:46

so like the share charms, good idea in principle, in practice, nobody will use it.

Tuesday, September 16, 2014 - 12:04

this is not an instances of mobile first any more than the MSFT mice and keyboard working on linux makes Microsoft linux first. Android and iOS finally support keyboard and mice, that's the story...

Tuesday, September 16, 2014 - 12:03

I guess it would have been nice to see windows wear lol. late again.

Tuesday, September 16, 2014 - 08:27

"This event will be led by Terry Myerson and Joe Belfiore"

oh you mean the two guys directly responsible for the windows phone fiasco? well that inspires confidence.

Monday, September 15, 2014 - 10:54

ladies and gentlemen, we have Satya's first "aQuantive" like disaster.

Monday, September 15, 2014 - 08:32

sadly for OSX, it is in the same place as windows phone. good hardware good software but app ecosystem lacking and peripheral support even more troublesome. It's not the big name app that gets you...

Friday, September 12, 2014 - 19:45

reaction of the media

surface sells out: they didn't make enough.
google nexus sells out: this changes everything

msft loses money on hardware: quit now!
google loses...

Friday, September 12, 2014 - 08:14

ironic how chrome OS is less significante marketshare wise than windows phone yet everybody thinks it is as big as android lol.

Monday, September 8, 2014 - 11:42

they are nice devices, but with MSFT increasingly porting all their stuff to iOS and android, there is just no reason to buy a WP...and soon not even windows. And once you made the switch, you may...

Monday, September 8, 2014 - 08:25

so they are pretty much getting flushed down the toilet to the MSN division which is the yahoo-like road to nowhere of MSFT's teams.

Wednesday, September 3, 2014 - 10:26

you see? for all the cries of cheap android crap, and cheap ultrabook crap, doesn't this feel better news than "Oh look MSFT overpriced hardware doesn't sell".

let's get windows back to its...

Tuesday, September 2, 2014 - 13:58

too bad apple tax kicks in. MSFT should give you a discount online and reduce the apple tax to encourage users to reject the apple tax.

Tuesday, September 2, 2014 - 10:49

the problem with iOS is similar to windows phone: a platform in decline with no growth. so while iOS is more established it is also a question of:

-if you're fleeing a sinking ship small...
