Virtually everything MS has done in the mobile space has been a market failure. Everything from the Zune to Windows Phone to the Surface to Windows RT. Why do you think that this will be...

I don't know why MS doesn't just buy Spotify.

I bought an Acer Chromebook just a few weeks ago. It was only $130 for a refurbished model. So far, I'm really enjoying it. At $130, how can you not buy one?

Microsoft still hasn't learned from the failure of Windows 8. In fact, things are getting worse. At least with Windows 8, desktop users had tangible benefits in upgrading. Windows 8 booted...

So, let's see if I'm understanding this correctly. MS marketed a device that cannot match the original iPad - either in thickness, weight, battery life or app store - yet charged a premium price...

The first generation Surface RT is bigger and heavier than the first generation iPad, let alone the 3 or 4 generation of the iPad.

If this report is correct, that means that even the...

Unfortunately, it looks like Microsoft is focusing almost exclusively on improving Metro. At least Win8 had a faster boot, ISO mounting, and a better task manager. There's almost nothing here for...

BTW, you can add this feature to IE right now through a third-party:

I've been wanting this feature for IE ever since I saw it on Safari. Too bad it's only available in Metro IE, which I rarely use.

Imagine if Microsoft pulled an Atari and buried the unsold Surface RTs in land dump? :)

Paul, do these wireless charging covers provide any protection of the phone itself if you drop it? Just curious. I shattered my 900 a few weeks ago.

Wednesday, June 26, 2013 - 3:00pm

Paul, can you go to...

...and tell us what the score is?

IE10 scores 320 (plus 6)...

You think The Weather Channel would know better than to overlap their logo on top of text Sloppy.

Thursday, June 20, 2013 - 11:05am

You think they would do market research *before* doing these sort of things.

Friday, June 14, 2013 - 9:51am

It's about time. Unfortunately, I no longer have a iPhone, but I'm looking forward to an iPad version.

Thursday, June 13, 2013 - 8:09pm

A unified user experience across devices? Well, except for Windows desktop, you know, the most popular one of them all.

Thursday, June 13, 2013 - 8:55am

Regarding the Mac Pro, I think you guys are missing the point. The new design features a single heat sink and fan which cools the entire computer. It's 1/8th the size of the previous Mac Pro....

LOL. It's superior except it doesn't work with any existing Xbox controller. I guess that's one way of artificially generating revenue. Does anyone know is the PS4 suffers from the same "...

Still no firmware fix for my cracked screen. :(

Wednesday, June 12, 2013 - 9:24am

This feels like Windows 8 all over again. Microsoft announces a new product. The flaws are obvious. Microsoft's "defenders" rush to explain why we're supposed to like the product. Only poor...

It's kind of sad that Microsoft has lowered our expectations so much that the simple act of adding an "X" to close an app is considered a brilliant feature.

Wednesday, June 5, 2013 - 9:18am

Why is this feature only in Enterprise? You would think they wouldn't want to hold back compelling features to the general public considering how poor Win8 is selling. I can envision the...

The ability to share the same desktop background might sound like a minor feature, but based on this demo, it might go a long way to make the Desktop/Metro switch less disconcerting.

If XBox One is another Windows 8, it will be the software version of the Sega Genesis/Sega CD/32X:

@pthurrott: Are you going to admit that you were wrong? Or is more important to you to save face?

Friday, May 17, 2013 - 2:23pm

That's interesting. Win8 is available as an option, but the default OS is Win7.

Thursday, May 16, 2013 - 6:45pm

It's too early to compare WP with BB. The Z10 wasn't released until January 30th. And I don't think the Q10 even been released yet. I just checked on AT&T's web site and it's not available...

Thursday, May 16, 2013 - 6:31pm

@red77star: Windows 8 isn't all bad. It boots faster than Windows 7, has a much better Task Manager, and better file copy operations. I do like the ability to mount ISOs without having to...

Wednesday, May 15, 2013 - 1:37pm

@jagade: I hope that's not addressed to me. If so, that's quite a bizarre comment. The title is misleading as I've already pointed out. A simple mea culpa and a correction from Paul would have...

How about a Start Screen that supports horizontal orientation?
