I guess the rumors of MSFT "embracing" other platforms not just with apps but beyond were highly exaggerated wouldn't you say Paul? ;)

In light of this all that "Micro-droid" nonsense comes...

Paul what was the marketshare of chromebooks in 2014? because the fact we can't answer this tells you how much they flopped.

This is not a chromebook reaction as much as it is a "push...

the windows + something sounds great while they get their numbers up, but a sobering reminder was that office for ipad has only 28 million downloads. Consider apple device stats put their user...

100% with you which is rare. I don't get the "responsibly make a market" part. I really hope it means what I've always dreamed of and that is letting OEMs customize WP via APIs the way they do...

Tuesday, July 8, 2014 - 11:51am

I bet you sales of WP are higher but the X is cheaper therefore by the rule of price it means there will be more demand. Plus what do the sales matter? it won't beat android ever. it can't. it...

I still don't see how MSFT can keep windows if basically their OS is irrelevant, so will c#, .net, WPF, winRT, basically as a windows developer, you'll be destined to only develop for the server...

I recall apple having 50+% of the smart phone market share globally not long ago? now they are forecasted to be around 10% or so? where is the tech press on the biggest iOS flop in history?

Tuesday, July 8, 2014 - 11:28am

Paul for all the "services" talk Satya likes to broadcast, bing maps is a joke compared to google maps. And this is the guy that think windows isn't needed to push his services around? ha ha. yeah...

I think 8.1 kills the 1020. I've been experiencing 4X longer wait times for the camera since I installed 8.1

Thursday, July 3, 2014 - 10:35am

why can't they do what google is? release a free platform maybe open source and let anybody make stuff for it. after all google has to start from scratch as the android wear sdk isn't going to run...

Wednesday, July 2, 2014 - 10:25am

so one start menu to fit both worlds? color me skeptical but wasn't this the original goal they are retreating from?

I don't really want a start menu on touch devices. it is too clusmy. we...

Lumia is also the name of a phone line which never sold any good :) why don't they ditch it. be original.

Monday, June 30, 2014 - 11:56am

good, now "invent" folders again in windows 8 please.

Thursday, June 26, 2014 - 8:52am

so explain to me why they do all this and MSFT can't even ship windows phone 8.1 on time. Why does Terry and Joe B still have a job?

Monday, June 23, 2014 - 2:13pm

tell that to the millions that have signed up for office 365 and will get a better deal than anybody else.

and you can link your business account with your personal account so, there is no...

it lasted 24 hours then came off. wouldn't stick again. Just get a proper sleve case that has a pen slot in it.

LR has always scaled better even without this setting. probably because it doesn't have as much legacy stuff as photoshop.

Thursday, June 19, 2014 - 2:29pm

that's like a college student implementation. there is a win32 method to get the DPI scaling and opt out of the auto scaling, in addition to subscribing to an event for when the scaling changes....

Wednesday, June 11, 2014 - 1:31pm

the videos make it look faster than the laggy wp version.

Monday, June 9, 2014 - 8:32am

what they need is a way to roll back the firmware. I remember hosing my device with an update last year which then they pulled back but not before inflicting severe damage to the batteries of some...

Friday, June 6, 2014 - 8:00am

that is what happens when you show somebody a gimmick on camera. in reality once they get the device and realize the limitations of the amazon ecosystem they'll pick back their "other" phone.

Thursday, June 5, 2014 - 6:54am

I don't understand why the screenshot above looks like a demo app from an intern. can't MSFT do better than that?

Wednesday, June 4, 2014 - 4:19pm

if they had open up universal apps to any app hub dev, we'd have 4500.

Monday, June 2, 2014 - 2:37pm

I have to commend you on the set of articles. You raised the bar among the "hands on" sites which basically published a review based on taking the device to the park and then mailing it back to...

Monday, June 2, 2014 - 2:33pm

makes sense. why give everybody what they want in august so that the back to school season will be gangbusters with these 2-in-1 devices when we can wait for 2015 and let apple and google react. I...

Friday, May 30, 2014 - 10:52am

agreed. Instead of complicating it they need to simplify it.
8GB is the base minimum for windows and a pro device. This should be the only option for the i3 and i5s and then just allow for a...

Friday, May 30, 2014 - 10:44am

I know what you're saying, but the economics just don't make sense at this level of device. It is too compact and too complex to made to order. It is produced in batches to keep prices down and...

Thursday, May 29, 2014 - 12:05pm

to get two screens to work, you need to get a hold of an MST hub that is DP 1.2 compliant. With surface pro 2, this was not possible (even if they claimed it was). The device(s) I tried to use the...

Wednesday, May 28, 2014 - 3:22pm

this sentence sounds wrong

but in trade you get much better precision ("parallax"),

better precision is not parallax. Better precision is the lack of parallax. In other words, if a...

"Surface Pen needs three of them, a single AAAA and two watch-style batteries."

what da hell? are you serious? Am I supposed to be a CVS and stock all these damn battery types each time it...
