I agree that XBONE purchase should probably wait for most folks just a bit longer, but anyone geek enough to own an X360 is certainly geek enough to appreciate the immediate cool stuff available...

VLC is one of those rare companies that everyone loves, not too many allegiances broken when dealing with these guys. What really blows my mind is reading about how much trouble VLC had in...

I don't think it will be long that these 8" tablets will naturally come with powerful enough processors, and docking stations to make them full pc's.

That is a usage scenario that sets...

So, I'm guessing since the Skype acquisition a few years ago, that they had to re-build Skype from the ground up? Is this accurate? Instead of the steady stream of complaints about Skype, I would...

Interesting you didn't mention the HDMI in the article, only in the comments. This item for me is a huge deal. I can and do, use my 8" tablet as a full desktop computer by hooking into friends...

Well, the title certainly achieved its desired effect. Look at all this traffic.

I have not installed the 8.1 update 1 so I can't really give an educated opinion of it, however from what I'...

Paul you had made a comment previously about whether or not this is a "rollup". I reset my Surface last night because I noticed a few too many "video hardware" errors in the "reliability monitor...

"Metro apps will now include a close box, similar to that seen on desktop applications, which can be clicked with a mouse so that the app closes completely."

That's funny because I have...

Interested to hear your take on Lenovo's "utilities". That stuff bugs the crap out of me. I don't want that on any new computer. I just want a fresh install of Windows.

The People hub should stay the way it is, it is a fantastic implementation, linking contacts together without joining them is a brilliant way to do it. Also the Photos app should try to be what it...

What will become of podcast support? Will it be included, or will we have to rely on apps, I wonder...

What's amazing to me is not that WinPho is catching up to Apple, but that Apple is literally standing still innovation wise, to let that happen.

The # of new things happening at Microsoft...

How much longer do we wait for "xbox - go to Winsupersite.com"? etc. Seems like a lot of this voice stuff has had PLENTY of time to be ironed out. So we wait again. Ok, Cortana? "Will you be worth...

I still think MS needs to create a $99 box for the masses. There is no need to let the Roku's and Apples and Google, walk away with that market. There are a lot of folks that are not Geek Nerds,...

I was wondering about the Gesture stuff. My gestures are totally unusable, I mean really, really bad. I was going to give this time before I register an actual complaint. Voice is so much better...

Yoga 13 has an i5 3rd gen, for $849, but I get your point. I just ordered 2 Dells with 15.6" touch screens and i5 processors for $399 each. That's just someplace Apple won't go, and why PC's will...

$899 - Lenovo Yoga 11.6", Core i5, 128 SSD, Touch Screen that flips over. $200 cheaper plus the crazy cool form factor.

But yes it's nice to see Apple coming down in price.

Saturday, November 30, 2013 - 16:09

Hey, you could have at least mentioned the Dell even if it's not in the running, and put some colorful live tiles in the picture. Is it my screen or is that a black square where the Venue is...

I am having a really good time with the voice features, they are miles ahead of the X360.

I was having a Skype call with a friend and I told him to upload a video to his SkyDrive and then...

I thought for a moment you were going to say the bad news is that those of us that have WinPho 8 devices would not be able to update to WinPho 8.1. That would be bad news.

Before the iPod,...

I love the tidbits that they are putting out, I wonder what they are holding back for launch day.

One thing that would REALLY be cool with the voice stuff, is the ability to bark out entire...

" Conduit and Mindspark should not exist as companies"

I think Paul should do a little 60 minutes-esc style journalism, and interview the heads of these two companies. If ever there were a...

The commercials should serve to show folks how to do the things they want to do. Real-time, tutorials in a commercial.

The first thing they should do to really stimulate Surface 2 sales, is...

I have so many questions also, they really need to nail the Music experience, it was great once you got to it on Xbox 360, but you had to bark at it for way too many screens to make it usable....

I thought it had something to do with making the screen easier to use while driving, like the Nokia drive interface that is supposed to come up when you connect to the wireless car charger.
