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 - 11:59

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!

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...

"I'm not sure about the availability of Visual Voicemail off of AT&T—I know it's not on Verizon Wireless,"

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!

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 - 17:17

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...

Is that a good thing?

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.

The Music Kit in itself probably won't be a huge seller. Buy maybe you will start to see DJs with a Surface instead a MacBook. Also, it is a proof of concept and it will be interesting to see...

The ironic part is that my Surface RT updated without a problem. My laptop and AIO Desktop are other stories. With the laptop appears to be conflicts with something installed. I uninstalled a...

On the main page, you would have seen in the upper left hand corner the green status saying downloading. I clicked on that on my Surface RT then I saw the download screen.

Thursday, October 17, 2013 - 23:46

Yes, I saw it on mine too.

Much of the problem with XP is that many corporations have applications that only run in the IE6 browser. So Chrome is not really going to help them there.

I have 1GB of temporary files. I tried to delete some yesterday, but I am still at 1GB today. I realize it wasn't going to delete 100% of the files, but I thought it would reduce it some. I...

I have heard that this feature can be accessed by third party apps used to pin settings like WiFi. So expect to see shortcuts created by developers pretty quickly. Nonetheless, at least it is on...

They will probably do that, but hopefully it is in addition to this. The X is the same as with closing tabs in IE. So this method is already used in the OS.

You need to read the articles from earlier in the day. You missed a few things. This is the Microsoft OS GDR 3 update announced this morning and is available for download. You got GDR 3 last...
