"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.

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 - 11:46pm

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.

Monday, October 14, 2013 - 6:33pm

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...

The 5.1 update is a big improvement. With the prior version, I would go into a post and when I backed out of it, the screen would refresh and I would be thrown back to the top. Now, with the new...

As a former iOS user myself, you will grow to love the UI. After awhile it will become second nature and then if you have to back to use an iPhone (my wife still has the 4s, trying to convert her...

WP8 has Citrix Receiver. Wouldn't the Microsoft app do the same thing? My company is launching the use of Citrix Receiver this weekend, so I will know if it works for sure next week. I know the...

Tuesday, October 8, 2013 - 10:58am

I honestly don't know what took Microsoft so long to roll back to the prior version. I don't know what good it was to have a completely useless app sitting in the store for the unaware users to...

"give it a while to cache the photos"... is there a limit on the size of the cache? What if you 50GB of photos on SkyDrive, and are using a 32GB Surface?

Thursday, September 26, 2013 - 11:33am

I haven't really used it yet, but I have heard the Aviary Photo Editor is a good app. It certainly can handle your basic cropping needs. It is available on WP too.....

I really hope with Microsoft's purchase of Nokia's Devices Division, that they can push to have the same phone released on all carriers at the same time. The 1020 is a great phone and should be...

Wednesday, September 18, 2013 - 9:29am

Agreed. But if not $40, at least knock it down some. These prices are delusional.

Wednesday, September 18, 2013 - 9:22am

I think they would rather you buy a new computer than upgrade to 8.1. Especially for those still stuck using XP or Vista.

Thursday, September 12, 2013 - 10:00am

As for the RT devices, I would love the Nokia tablet, but it will not sell at $499, no matter how great. If RT is to stick around, the larger screens need to be sub-$350, and the 7-8" screens...

Tuesday, September 3, 2013 - 11:18am

Would like to know what you think will happen now with the supposed Nokia Windows RT release this fall?

Friday, August 30, 2013 - 2:47pm

You didn't mention "Glance". Loving this feature. My phone is my clock, so it is nice just to see the time without having to hit any buttons. The double tap works well, but it sometimes take a...
