I like how Podcasts is now a separate app. It's also neat that when searching for podcasts, it uses Bing to find things that might not necessarily be in the WP database. You can also now add...

There is nothing wrong with RT in an of itself. If a person prefers the "modern UI" experience over the competitors' interfaces, as I do, it's a fine OS for media consumption. The problem is that...

Microsoft has plenty of good ideas, but they aren't executing effectively. With all of their products, the interoperability between them is still lacking.

The Smartglass feature is half-...

It would be handy if, when this mode is activated, your phone went into "car mode" where often used car functions, like maps and music, would be shown.

Windows RT without the desktop is pretty close to the Windows Phone OS. It would make sense if RT and WP were the same OS, much the way that Android phones and tablets use the same OS (minor...

I'm glad someone said it.

A thousand times this. Zune is amazing. Why Microsoft completely abandoned all the work they put in it is beyond me.

I've used a lot of laptops and tablets, and Lenovo seems to be the only company that includes a cellular modem in most of their devices.

Probably a good idea. I have an unlocked 920 (branded AT&T) and have yet to see GDR2.

I am happy to see the meta-data fix. Hopefully this means seeing more album/artist artwork too. Maybe now I can finally turn on the "Connect to Xbox Music" option. Well, once my 920 gets the...

"and improves the accuracy of song info and other metadata—something I know music fans will appreciate."

If it brings back album artwork in Music, I will be very grateful. I am tired of...

I might have a solution for you. If the podcasts you listen to have a feed already setup but they are not in the Microsoft Store, you can contact Microsoft and have them add the feed. You'll need...

I have experienced the duplicate song bug on my new Lumia 820. I was thinking about trying a factory restore on the phone, but if MS is aware of it and a fix is on the way, I suppose I can live...

My unlocked Samsung Focus has not received the updated. I check via the Zune software every day. It's considered an AT&T "World Phone." Ever since I decided to wait on WP8 due to the media...

It seems strikingly similar to the Samsung Focus WP7 I have sitting on my desk right now. If MS can work out the poor media management in WP8, I'd give this model serious consideration.

Is there a way to copy local podcast files to a WP8 device and have them show up with the other Podcasts?

For example, I have a few files that I made myself but they are not available as a...

I was really hoping they would take the functionality of the Zune software and turn it into a Modern UI app. Or just add Windows 8 functionality to the Zune software. Neither happened. So no...

"What’s missing from the device-based support for podcasts, of course, is the ability to find podcasts (using a URL or RSS feed) that Microsoft does not aggregate in its marketplace. You can do...

Even if we get podcasts from other software, then move them to our phones, how will the original software, such as iTunes, know where I left off on the podcasts on my phone? I'll have to manually...

Take the audio files in question and put them in a folder in the Podcast folder. Open the properties of the file, then go to the Details tab. Change the genre to "Podcast" and make sure the album...

I am wondering the same thing. Some of the podcasts I listen to I add to the Zune software by just copying and pasting the feed URL. Can I do the same thing with the new Windows Phone software?

Friday, December 7, 2012 - 14:07

Why did Microsoft separate out Podcasts from the rest of the media? Why can I only get those on the phone? Sometimes I want to listen to podcasts on my computer and have that activity synced with...

This is the first bit of information about the new WP8 OS that has me seriously reconsidering getting one. One of the best features of the WP7 experience is the excellent Zune software. Everyday I...
