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 - 5:18pm

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...

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

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...

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!!!

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 - 4:52pm

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...

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...

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...

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...

Does it have NFC?

Monday, June 3, 2013 - 12:18pm

Ha Ha - that was very good.

Sunday, June 2, 2013 - 1:01pm

Paul, I am not sure that the title of this article is correct. I think it should be: Will Haswell save INTEL? Many manufacturers (Dell, HP, Sony, Toshiba, Asus, Acer, ...) are involved with...

I have written a WinPhone 7/7.5 App (which also runs unchanged on WinPhone8) where the code was used as a basis for a Windows 7/8 Desktop Application and then this code was used as a basis for a...

Thursday, March 14, 2013 - 3:06pm

Thanks Paul. I did not know about PhotoBeamer, so I installed it and it really works and quite fast too. :-). I have used other Nokia Apps such as the turn-by-turn navigation system and maps with...

I realize that individuals, who have submitted comments to Paul's article, dislike Metro Tiles and just want to work in the Desktop mode. Well, when starting up the computer click on any key or...

Monday, March 11, 2013 - 7:02pm

I hope that NT does not rise again since IMHO it is not in the same league as Windows 8 or 7. I have developed for every version of Windows and even though there are some issues with Windows 8, I...

Wednesday, March 6, 2013 - 11:16pm

Paul do you or anyone have a suggestion for a good 27"+ 2560x1440 touch monitor that supports HDMI/Display Port? Intent is to use it with the Surface Pro?

Wednesday, February 27, 2013 - 2:46pm

Thanks for the info; however, I think I was not clear enough. While driving we wanted to say locate a hotel and once located, to use their on-line reservation system to reserve and pay for the...

Tuesday, February 26, 2013 - 3:42pm

Paul, I realize that we are heading to the cloud, but we are still a long ways away from it. My wife and I made a trip across country last June using a new car with a Wi-Fi Hub and using major...

I am a little confused as to why Skype instant messenger is a disaster. Over the past five years or more I have used Skype in business and personal to carry on instant messaging along with voice...

Microsoft makes an excellent Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 5000 and Bluetooth netbook mouse 5000 that will work quite nicely with the Surface. The keyboard is approximately two inches wider than the...
