I don't think you mentioned it, but when you see the controls for the "ringer and notifications" and "media and apps", you can click on the "bell" and "music note" to mute those.

Also,...

It is not just exactly how you configure your interests in Cortana, the Interests that you setup in Cortana sync with Bing. I had setup Cortana before going to Bing and the Interests that I setup...

I like the option to have 3 Medium tiles instead of only 2, or 1 medium and 1 wide on the same row. I like the small tiles on my 928, they are not too small to me.

Apple is no longer enemy #1, Google is! I hope they release the Touch version for Windows before they do for Android. Releasing an Android version first would be the real kick in the teeth!

I don't know what the limitations are on modern browser development, but I would have never thought to try it until it was fully released. I didn't even know where to get it, since it was a beta...

Other than the lack of microSD, the Icon doesn't currently support Glance or Double-Tap to Wake. There is nothing that can be done about the microSD at this point, but hopefully they can figure...

It might be a Frankstein OS, but I like it.

Seems like a good option if you want it... and if you don't, you can turn it off. Definitely could be useful on none touch PCs. Will probably enable it.

There was speculation that this would only be available to Windows 7 users. They should open this up to XP and Vista users as well. At least they couldn't say that cost was a factor in not...

It could be. Certainly it will be interesting to see what happens going forward. Hopefully the platform does what it is supposedly meant to do, get Android and feature phone users to ultimately...

It seems logical. The ideal is to get to the truly 'Universal App" and this is a step in that directly. The setup should certainly make the development of both Windows and Windows Phone apps...

Pin to Start Screen.... it would be nice to be able to Pin to a specific group on the Start Screen directly, instead of pinning and then dragging the app to the group you want it in.

Looks like a lot of good things coming with Update 1. Keep them coming!

Outlook Online and Outlook Online for Business. That is probably what they will do, since that is how they are branding "OneDrive".

Monday, January 27, 2014 - 11:59am

OneDrive does fit the branding better. I still like the SkyDrive better, but OneDrive does work fine.

The store says "Requires the Lumia Black software update."

The 928 is a good phone... Icon will be a great phone!

Thursday, January 9, 2014 - 4:17pm

I am glad to see the App Folders in the update. Interesting that this was never mentioned anywhere before today and it appears to have been added since the initial release of Black on the 1520....

It was out of stock, but I was still able to purchase it. The site it will ship when more were in stock. I wish this was on Verizon. I would have bought one a long time ago. I bought it today...

When I created my Outlook address, I made the mistake of creating it directly on the Outlook site. I set it up right after the site was launched. The problem is that I now have two separate...

The reason that the Netflix streaming service became so popular, besides the fact that their through the mail service was so popular, was the fact that Netflix has an app on just about every...

Does AT&T charge for their Visual Voicemail, whether it is a Windows Phone...

..."I still feel a bit idiotic talking to the Xbox..." Just wait until it starts talking back to you!

Monday, November 11, 2013 - 7:58pm

Paul... I am a little disappointed in this review, in that you spent so much of it focused on the app ecosystem. This reads like it could have been written by some iOS or Android blogger. Yes,...

Great stuff Paul. As for the book name, how about Windows 8.1: The Evolution of the "New Windows", or simply - Windows 8.1: The Evolution.

Thursday, October 31, 2013 - 5:17pm

Probably for some, but for the majority, I don't think it will make a difference. The detractors will grab onto something like this though to spew their Microsoft hatred. I think that Xbox One...

Thursday, October 31, 2013 - 12:41pm

Is that a good thing?

Thursday, October 31, 2013 - 11:25am

With the 8" tablets now, this is possible. If it happens, this will be a major shift to Windows tablets.

I setup Two-Step Authentication via the Authenticator app on my Windows Phone earlier this year. Then I needed to do a hard-reset on my Windows Phone (due to the now resolved Other Storage issue...

I was able to setup an 8 year old HP wireless printer on my Surface RT. I had to use one of the generic printer drivers, but it works great.
