I adore my Y2P, flaws and all. I really don't understand the criticism of touchscreen on laptop and how "worthless" the tablet and stand modes are. I find these to be great. When my kids want to...

I'm also a huge fan of flexible snap. Comparison shopping in side by side IE windows is great. Also, have you noticed that both apps process touch independently? Excellent. I frequently keep Music...

I have 2 major gripes with this laptop, one of them is Lenovo's fault and one of them is Microsoft's. The first gripe is that the touch pad is finicky. It doesn't support 2-finger tap to right-...

If you're used to a Mac's touchpad, you'll be disappointed. It's kind of finicky, and I do wish Lenovo would hurry up and issue a Synaptics driver update (they did some kind of OEM lock on the...

Fairly small! About the size of a 3x5" index card, and maybe about .75" thick.

I'm simply flabbergasted at how incompetent the Photos team is. I love the rest of Win 8.1, but the inability to import photos from the app itself and the loss of useful features makes this a near...

Gotta disagree. Microsoft is copying the right company. Google's cash cow (search) is something that Microsoft cannot (yet) touch. Microsoft's cash cow is something Google can and is threatening...

I definitely enjoyed the commercial. I'd love to see others showing other scenarios. One real-life scenario I encountered was on the road with my brother. He had an iPad and I had my crappy old...

Playing around with it, this is a vast improvement. If I had to criticize something, it would be their choice of background. The lines and triangles are distracting and I think they should choose...

Wait a sec, didn't you just write an article on the top complaints with your take and how to fix it? To quote part of that:

> My take: The “always on” Internet connection requirement is...

Microsoft: Hey, customers, what do you want?
Bob Rock: We want free xboxes and free games. Forever.
Microsoft: Yeah, hmmm, thanks. Ok, publishers, what do you want?
Hard Place...

So, your solution is effectively to fragment the xbox one user base into:
kinect / internet
kinect / no internet
no kinect / internet
no kinect / no internet

I'm not sure vertical scrolling works better than horizontal in portrait mode. More tiles list vertically, so the amount of horizontal scrolling would be reduced.

What I'd like to see,...

Will I still need Cisco's crappy VPN client?

I think most of us would agree that a Mac is a PC, right? It's exactly the same thing, but with a different operating system, capable of almost everything Windows is capable of.

So, take a...

To me, the argument is philosophical. If something can do multiple things well, it should go ahead and do them. I don't buy the argument that a thing should have one purpose. Some things have one...

No, at least not in the makeup one (I hadn't watched the others yet). That's Mandarin.

Almost every laptop with a high res display will have a significantly different physical PPI than, say, a 24" 1080p monitor. You'd have to set your Surface to 1024x600 (~110dpi) to match your...

(nod in agreement)

Kind of like what they did with Win32. How many apps followed in Office's footsteps both in terms of tech and design? Microsoft gained greater prowess with its own API's...

I think what the mess boils down to is that:

1. Microsoft's own engineers were working with a brand new SDK driving a brand new stack using new language features and development tools....
