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.

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...

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...

Thursday, August 28, 2014 - 09:59

I'll wait for cooler broadwell versions thanks.

Tuesday, August 26, 2014 - 13:51

so why are Terry and Joe still leaders of the windows phone and windows division? if these guys after 3 years drove windows phone to the ground, why are we still thinking they can turn it around...

Thursday, August 21, 2014 - 11:15

two companies that are irrelevant yet somehow think android will save them even as they are zombies walking: HP and BN.

Thursday, August 21, 2014 - 08:49

still a mess. I have skype for desktop and skype for windows 8. When I get a call, I get skype for desktop to ring, and skype for windows 8 even if I'm not using the latter one. What is worse is...

Thursday, July 31, 2014 - 13:17

for all the amounts of crap about IE being non standard, what do the webkit gansters of google and apple do when they dominate? exactly what IE did x10.

Monday, July 28, 2014 - 11:49

resolution problems again.

It is not that I care for a 1440p phone. In fact, this is a drawback IMO. However the problem is that reviews talk, and sell phones and MSFT yet again lagging in...

Friday, July 25, 2014 - 08:33

meanwhile, amazon doesn't give a rat about windows 8 or windows phone even though there are more of those devices out there than there will ever be amazon phones.

Friday, July 25, 2014 - 08:32

MS has every app they make on iOS on android except for office which is coming. what else do you want?

Wednesday, July 23, 2014 - 09:42

While it is true that xb1 isn't yet part of the universal app story, it may have more to do with the SDK efforts being late than anything else. So it is not fair to say it is smoke and mirrors...

Tuesday, July 22, 2014 - 13:52

performance performance performance. the dashboard is so laggy and slow that makes the 360 looks like a race car.
