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

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 - 20:09

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...

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 - 20:06

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 - 20:28


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 - 21:32

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 - 20:41

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.

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 - 22:45

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 - 21:01

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 - 16:03

'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 - 22:54

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 - 00:39

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 - 00:30

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 - 00:15

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 - 22:01

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 - 00:13

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 - 22:15

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 - 21:57

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 - 21:52

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 - 21:40

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...

Thursday, April 11, 2013 - 20:28

I think you have it now Paul!
I like the first two suggestions:
Paul Thurrott's Windows Phone 8 Guide
Paul Thurrott's Xbox Music Guide

Leave out the "Field" or "Pocket"...

Tuesday, April 9, 2013 - 20:46

I would really like to see these numbers after (when?) the Nokia 920 variant comes to Verizon.
I suspect there will be a spike in WP usage. Not on the level of Apple or Android, but a spike...

Tuesday, April 2, 2013 - 15:03

Just checked for the update and it is there now (12:02pm AZ)
Very nice interface, and falls right in line with MS's big picture for the unified interface.

Everything seems to be...

Sunday, March 24, 2013 - 21:42

Interesting...while the comment numbers are light right now; it is Sunday after all. Not one mention of the potential demise of the desktop from anyone.
Frankly, if done right, and it looks...

Friday, March 15, 2013 - 19:55

Try this:
Thurrott's dé·tente(s): Xbox Music
Thurrott's dé·tente(s): Surface RT
Thurrott's dé·tente(s): Surface Pro

You are trying to ease the tension between MS products...

Saturday, March 9, 2013 - 22:12

I wouldn't use the 'pocket guide' wording.
I use several 'pocket guide' type books for hiking, and they are literally pocket sized guides. Naming your book like this would give me the wrong...

Saturday, March 2, 2013 - 15:15

Great app, and technology.
This is bound to happen I reckon...

I love how you can zoom in...
