You know, I've been wondering, why doesn't MS just *always* offer recovery partitions for Windows online? It's going to require a valid registration key anyway, so why not just always make them...

Apparently, I'm not the only one experiencing this problem:

Any news on the "Sorry, it looks like this PC can't run Windows 8.1" issue?

Friday, October 18, 2013 - 17:53

I'm getting the following error:

Can't update to Windows 8.1

Sorry, it looks like this PC can't run Windows 8.1. This might be because the Users or Program Files folder is being...

It looks like there's a serious flaw in the Windows 8.1 installation program. I have Windows and my applications installed on my C: drive (SSD) and my data on my D: drive (a traditional hard disk...

Damn, this is taking forever to download. Two hours and counting. Maybe I shouldn't have tried to upgrade 3 computers at the same time, LOL.

They should implement both ways to close an app.

This sounds cool, but the Share charm isn't compatible with Windows apps, only Metro apps, which unfortunately means that it's ultimately useless to most users.

If I had a dollar for every time I accidentally pressed the Search button, I could probably afford a new phone!

What about Windows Phone? Also, since WP8 uses the same NT kernel as Windows 8, I'd love to be able to remote desktop into my phone.

I don't see why MS can't have both a Surface and Lumia line of devices. After all, Honda can sell Civics, Accords, Fits, etc..

Much better than the dancing ads. I'm not sure why they're showing these ads now. Win8.1 doesn't come out for another 2-3 weeks. Anyone who sees this ad and then buys a Win8 device is going to...

Off the top of my head, I'd like a Start Menu, better task swapping, and a good text editor. It also needs to be thinner and lighter like the iPad.

I'm watching the presentation now. I'm struck by the tepid response by the audience. Microsoft makes a major announcement, and relatively few people clap. This has all the makings of yet...

Is it possible to tell Xbox music not to wipe our your existing tags and artwork? There should be a way to set it to a read-only mode.

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?

Monday, September 9, 2013 - 17:03

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...

Monday, September 9, 2013 - 16:55

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...

Monday, September 9, 2013 - 11:44

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...

Monday, August 26, 2013 - 16:42

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.

Paul, can you go to...

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

Thursday, June 20, 2013 - 10:05

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

Friday, June 14, 2013 - 08:51

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