Newegg has it for $280.

So would this work as an Xbox Live Gold account if connected to Xbox to access free media that MS charges for?

@Paul. I've been meaning to ask you this and this seems like a good opportunity. All things considered, if you had to make a choice between iOS and Android now and moving forward, which would you...

Their message and PR problem isn't limited to XboxOne by any means. I'm always amazed that with all of their money and resources, MS has these kind of problems. They can easily employ the very...

My thoughts and sentiments exactly.

Timing is everything. MS came too late for the internet, search engines, browsers, mp3 players, smartphones, and tablets. Google was a joke at first and now they are laughing and MS is crying. MS...

I'm a big fan of yours Paul and have been for some time. I'm reading a lot more of "I was for it before I was against it" from your posts...W8, HTC vs. Lumia, Ballmer, etc. No criticism here. Just...

Satya's name is pronounced Sat-ya (short "a"). There is no "h" in it.

Wasn't someone able to hear how much louder Justine's mic was? I had to keep turning it down every time he spoke.

Mary Jo - I 'luv 'ya dearly girl, but there is no "b" in supposedly and I cringe every time you say it.

Mod as in modified or mod like groovy?

I wish it were the other way around where we were able to get Google apps on WP8.

Saturday, January 25, 2014 - 11:42am

I like the updates but I don't like the trouble they cause with many of my third party programs. I guess some of the developers just aren't seeing a pressing need to update their programs for W8...

Maybe Andrew should send him that Lightpack and Paul can attach it behind his head before each show.

Why do you want to omit your name? It has a lot of cache....like Nokia or Lumia so why not take advantage of it? I think "Paul Thurott's Guide to Windows 8.1" would be best but if not, perhaps, "...

A still unanswered obvious question that many of us still wonder about. You'd think they would have done this at the very least as a stop-gap measure until they had all of this figured out which...

You want MS to fail? You do realize that the more competition the better for consumers right? Right?

Thursday, January 16, 2014 - 11:37am

There are two reasons I don't use IE and use Chrome instead. One you mentioned and the other is the lack of a real Speed Dial 2 extension for IE. IE's Favorites is not even close to being the same...

I detest that MS does this. I just recently learned that you can broadcast media from your PC to Xbox without a Gold Account. Just bring up anything you want to view in IE Modern app go to Charms/...

This red needs Scudaria Ferrari branding!

Can Miracast be used to show online media from my PC to TV instead of having to pay for the Xbox Gold "privilege"?

Saturday, November 9, 2013 - 8:50pm

So what about just the music on the Zune player? Since upgrading to W8, I can't get the Zune software to display on my PC. Searching it doesn't show it but when I try to download it, it says that...

Not an accurate analogy at all. I'm a very "wired" person, but when I'm with someone(s) I'm with them in a "get together" situation like that. There is no way one can claim that electronic devices...

I'm still not understanding why for $500 at STB is even necessary. It is an additional expense to rent or buy on top of $500. I have a 360 and I don't need one and in fact is why I got one to...

I suggest staying with Paul Thurrott's xxxxx for all of your books. Your name is the brand and so should be consistent in titling. You can always add co-authored by xxxx. Keep it simple.

Tuesday, November 5, 2013 - 11:20am

Sorry, but the grammar police are here. The letter following a colon (or semi-colon) does not get capitalized. I've noticed this being done a couple of times previously and is why the grammar...

Haters gunna hate!

"Okay, this is fine. I get the whole Xbox-as-a-HTPC thing."

Good. Then please explain it to me.

XB1 is $500 and still requires one to either buy or rent a STB at a significant added...

"And so it begins."

I'll won't use it until IE offers a real Speed Dial instead of the anemic attempt that it has now.
