HTC giveth and Huawai taketh away.

As someone who doesn't give a flying fig about the camera, but cares very much about portable music, this is exactly what I've been waiting for: a 5" flagship phone with a microSD slot, and...

I received my pre-ordered i7 on release day, 8/1, and have been using it daily. The one thing I really noticed is that it runs really hot even if I'm just using something like SmartGlass or...

This looks like just what I've been wanting. Will it be a Verizon exclusive in the U.S.?

Goin' out to pick up my i7 at the local Microsoft store soon. Management picked a really bad day to have morning meetings.

Yes, I might (most likely will) buy a new phone. However, what phones does AT&T have with WP 8.1? Lumia 635? That's a low-end phone. Lumia 1520 (maybe)? If I wanted a phone that big, I...

Great news!

Now I'm just hoping AT&T releases WP 8.1 soon...

Because Microsoft has no control over that.

They send the updates off to the carriers and then the carriers keep it in "testing" mode until they decide they want to push it out, and which...

Speaking for myself, much of the wailing and gnashing of teeth over Xbox Music stemmed from the idea that it was going to be stuck in its present state. The apps are woefully in need of...

Okay, here is a use case, and I want to know if the fixes in WP 8.1 will help me through what should be a simple (based on all the technologies MS already has at its disposal) but is a hot mess....

I'm holding my breath on the whole Xbox Music thing.

Shortly after my "Hallelujah!" response last week, and saying I was sticking with Windows Phone if Microsoft was, I began to regret...

Halleluiah!

Like you, Paul, this whole "Plan B" thing has been causing me an undue amount of stress. Since you're an ex-Amiga guy, you'll relate to my history of being an Atari guy who "...

I see it all the time: "I don't have any need for that functionality; therefore, no one does."

I keep telling myself: you knew there would be issues from being an early adopter. But I think my Surface RT is my last Windows RT product. I'm keeping an eye on what's being done with new x86...

I wasn't aware that enterprise users are the only people who use wired Ethernet. Compared to wired, Wi-Fi is very slow. When copying a large number of music files to my Surface RT (it has that...

I agree on two very important points. Amazingly, londan is the only one so far to hit on:

"It's been made clear that developers don't like 2nd hand sales and this would provide a...

I like either. Dropping the "Field" does make the title a bit less unwieldy. However, if you are going to use "Pocket" for differentiation -- and I kind of like that because on the podcasts you'...

I understand your point about putting the topic first: Windows 8 Secrets, PowerPoint for Dummies, etc..

To that end, I prefer the Title/Guide format. If you wanted to use your name as part...

Thank you!

I have been so tempted to write to you asking for a summary of all these things. I have an extensive music collection ripped from CDs, and using/accessing it in the past was...

Good tip; I hadn't noticed the Archive button this morning. Now the big question:

When will the Windows 8 Mail app be as useful as Outlook.com? Maybe these groups might want to start...
