Great tip Paul, thanks!
While I appreciate and understand some of the mouse and keyboard changes MS made to Update 1, I also find that some of them create a compromise to the vision, if you...

I kind of like the look of this field guide, due to the "blocks" layout with images, which you would obviously replace with the OS live tiles. Perhaps even gear them towards the field guide topic...

Interestingly, I had to disable automatic updates, and re-enable them to force the update in Office 365 Home Premium.
Not exactly the version this article is about, but thought I'd throw my...

What I find odd, is that I did a search for this app on both my phone and my computer browser in the store, and got ZERO results for the Bing app.
Your link works though Paul, so thank you...

I ask that same question frequently of my Android using friends, and I get the same reply you got: Crickets chirping.
They can site some gee-whiz feature like facial recognition to unlock...

I have a new-found respect for you, and my respect for you was already high; but you being an AC/DC fan is awesome!
My favorite band!

Monday, February 3, 2014 - 9:09pm

This is exactly what I had to do my Crashplan service too. Did this a couple of months ago, and haven't had any problems since.

For backups >1tb, this seems to be necessary. Rather...

You know what the difference between a porcupine and a BMW is, right?

Thursday, October 17, 2013 - 8:09pm

Same here. Just started the download and seeing the progress bar. Minor item, but it's reassuring at the same time, to know that something is happening.

Fun show!
These are always good, but watching Andrew hand over his man card with that wine was pretty funny.

Friday, August 30, 2013 - 8:09pm

I'm kind of bummed that the 928 doesn't have the FM receiver chip.
I use my Zune HD every day at work to listen to our hilarious morning crew (Holmberg's Morning Sickness in PHX), and news...

Friday, August 30, 2013 - 7:46pm

Spot on.
If this Nokia development doesn't come to the MS based MyFordTouch first, I will be a bit shocked.
However, I do see them offering it to as many auto manufacturers as possible...

Friday, August 23, 2013 - 8:06pm

I was going to post the same thing.
Audio is all in the right speaker. I thought I had read that this recorded in stereo. Must be mistaken.
However, while the heavy bias to the right...

Thursday, August 22, 2013 - 8:28pm


You nailed that perfectly!
That was actually funnier than the WP ad, only because it is so true!
I get so freaking tired of listening to these exact comments from iPhone...

Friday, August 2, 2013 - 9:32pm

Paul, like many others have stated: Thank you so much for your efforts, and that they are gratis.
I am trying to convert friends from iPhones and Droid, and I always send this book to them...

Saturday, July 27, 2013 - 8:41pm

Troll Hunters was a Blast of a movie!
TONS of fun to watch!
and as you said Paul: Pretty well done. "almost" believable.
Folks, give this move a watch for a fun/dumb time.

Monday, July 8, 2013 - 10:09pm

This app is now absolute garbage!
I have a server location where all of my photos are stored. Why on earth would I want to copy them to other devices just so I can see them there too?????...

Thursday, June 13, 2013 - 10:45pm

Well done MS!
A big change from the goofiness that was the Surface ads, and the very rare WP ads.
Expand on this now, and make more of a media blitz with this type of advertising....

Sunday, June 9, 2013 - 9:01pm

I'm not so sure I would call wireless charging "gimmicky". I just got my 928 and purchased the Nokia wireless charging stand, and there is nothing quite like walking by the charger and literally...

Saturday, June 1, 2013 - 4:03pm

'Tank'? Not so sure about that Paul, although I haven't seen one in person yet.
From what I can tell of the dimensions, I think MS designed this to potentially go into an AV rack system,...

Friday, May 31, 2013 - 10:54pm

Spot on analysis
I often wonder why Paul and others are so down on RT....
It is what I thought MS thought it should be. Frankly, and iP...alternative. Yes, the lack of killer apps...

Friday, May 31, 2013 - 12:39am

You may need to consider a career change and work for MS marketing!
Good idea! That would have been exceptionally arrogant, and on point.

Friday, May 31, 2013 - 12:30am

Jeez! Good eye!
I have an account and it doesn't show up like that on my RT.
You may be right about an Outlook "app" in 8.1
That would be very cool. Although, I...

Friday, May 31, 2013 - 12:15am

Just received email confirmation that mine is on it's way!
a little worried about call quality based on some less than reliable reviewers, and a scant number of user complaints about the...

Monday, May 20, 2013 - 10:01pm

I'll echo some other posters sentiments, and say that an ecosystem type manual would be valuable.
One covering the users MS account, and it's importance, and what you get by using something...

Saturday, May 11, 2013 - 12:13am

Quite thrilled by this news!
My wife and I will be upgrading as soon as they are available in store. I choose to buy in store to see how Verizon employees are handling the sale of WP8...

Wednesday, May 8, 2013 - 10:15pm

I am a Verizon customer desperately waiting for a WP8 "hero" phone, and this may be it, if it truly is headed to the Network. I appreciate that it will likely be nothing more than a 920 in wolfs...

Tuesday, May 7, 2013 - 9:57pm

THIS is what will finally get me off my feature phone and onto WP8 with Verizon!
Frankly, while this is an interim release with Verizon, I think that since they are the "popular" carrier, it...

Tuesday, May 7, 2013 - 9:52pm

I hate to say it, but I share your very simplistic view of what MS is likely thinking here...
We have Great ideas, but if we announce them before WE are ready, the competition, which moves...

Tuesday, May 7, 2013 - 9:40pm

Why? that is not the intent of RT!
I wish more folks understood that RT is, or is supposed to be the equivalent of the Appl iPad OS.
Granted, MS F'ed this up in the ad's and by having...
