I have a 920 and when my wife recently cracked the screen on her 920 it was replaced by an unlocked 920 from Amazon. We will not upgrade our phones with any of the new low-end phones from...

Just checked my 920 and it was updated to Denim. I do recall a couple of days ago that my phone requested that I install an update which I did, but I was not aware that it was Denim until I...

Really nice simple app. Paul, thanks for bringing it to our attention. This is only the beginning of showing how versatile the OS of the Band is.

In addition to the pre-defined messages, if one receives a phone or text notification and if one is using a Windows Phone with Cortana, then one can activate Cortana by pressing and holding the '...

Thanks, I had not thought about battery drain. Do you know how much the battery is drained by vibrating the band for each notification? If so, how does it compare to driving a speaker?

My medium size Band arrived yesterday. First it is not unwieldy for me and not heavier than my watches. While it was charging I downloaded the 'Microsoft Health' app for the Nokia 920. After...

Paul, UKUser is correct about rewriting modern apps. As one who has developed three modern Apps, all of them restrict the size the app in both directions. Primarily the Apps are designed to only...

I have installed Windows 10 successfully with selecting the option to retain files and settings on a Surface Pro running Windows 8.1 with all of the latest updates. The Start Menu works as...

I just purchased a Sony Blu-Ray BDP-S5200 player for $89 that supports Miracast through its Screen Mirroring internal menu option. Once my Surface Pro was connected following the instructions...

This announcement does not address the important issue of Microsoft deactivating every 90 days Windows Store Apps that a developer develops and are residing on their own computers. I have numerous...

Paul, I agree that this is an excellent suggestion. This would solve the availability issue of different models and potentially the update and international travel issues.

I watched a video from Nokia showing Cyan features and then tested the update which showed that indeed Cyan features were part of the update :-)

Friday, September 5, 2014 - 13:59

Thanks poit57 for the info and I also was on the preview. I used the Nokia Software Recovery Tool and it installed Firmware version 3051.500009.1424.0001. It also indicates Phone 8.1 without...

What I want to know is when are the carriers/Microsoft going to update the current set of Windows Phones to 8.1 with Cyan. AT&T still has not updated our Nokia 920!!!! It does not make any...

AT&T has still NOT updated by wife's 920 from version 8.0!!!! Could this be a reason why no one is purchasing Windows Phones?

Monday, July 28, 2014 - 16:18

Paul, carriers should never be involved in releasing updates!!!!

Please stop discussing Windows Phone 8.1 and 8.1+ until all Windows phones have been updated by all carriers. It is most...

I really like the Start screen. I have not found a need or a use for a start menu that cannot be handled by the start screen. Desk top apps are easily pinned to the Start screen where they are...

I really like the brand name Surface and many of friends are showing knowledge of the different types of Surfaces. That is, the brand name is now propagating. When I take my Surface to different...

I tried this on a non-touch Oosmio and the Surface Pro with a Nokia 920 -- Projection worked on both computers after I followed the instructions from Mr. Simpkins wrt for removing the phone from...

Thursday, April 10, 2014 - 18:55

Thanks Paul and Tero. It works like a champ :-)

Monday, December 16, 2013 - 16:20

I cannot agree more. In fact I mentioned this quite awhile ago as one of the issues with the WinPhone - at that time I wanted the buttons to be real buttons and not touch buttons. Every time I...

Tuesday, November 12, 2013 - 19:54

The procedure outlined by Paul worked on a Surface RT and a Surface Pro, both of which were updated through the store to Windows 8.1. As someone earlier said - this is awesome!!!

Tuesday, October 22, 2013 - 10:11

Paul, These phablets look good. Two questions - 1. what are the physical dimensions (LxWxH) as compared to the 520, 920, 925, 1020, ... and 2. are they using GDR3?

Monday, October 14, 2013 - 15:52

Thanks Paul for the info. Update installed and is running as advertised on my 920. The added feature of tapping on an X to close an App worked. Obviously other features need to be tested, but...

Tuesday, October 1, 2013 - 13:23

Congratulations Paul, you deserve it. Your timely articles not only contain much content but they also illicit much discussion and diversity of opinion which adds to your informative site. Keep up...

You may be correct, but keep in mind that 8.1 permits variable sizes for the two apps. It appears to be the snapped view as on 8.0, but that is a selectable position on 8.1 - meaning that moving...

I have not heard that WinRT cannot run Apps that are compiled for ARM, the question is, 'Will Adobe recompile Photoshop and QA it?' And will all of the other companies that make products recompile...

Thursday, September 26, 2013 - 12:49

Maybe some computer compiler GURU's can shed more light on this. The ARM processor in Windows RT does not have the same internal instruction set as X86/X64 so applications that run on Windows 7...

Sunday, September 1, 2013 - 17:13

I am having a hard time reconciling the extreme negativity towards the Surface Pro and RT computers with my own experience. As a user I have on both computers used Office, Netflix, Skype, iBirds,...

I had a meeting this morning with a colleague who I am developing a Windows 8.1 App with. He asked if we should also develop an Android version. I mentioned the issue that Microsoft was having...
