So was the device locked down to the touch interface? Was desktop available? Could you have downloaded Malware etc, or was that all blocked by policies etc? I kept waiting for the bad parts in the...

So where as a Chrome book which can only function as a web browser now has credibility, Windows RT, which runs Microsoft Office, has a touch screen, and can run apps from the app store, does not...

OneDrive is awesome, it is what happens when MS finally gets something right. But it took a while to get here, and there are a few quirks.

I don't want to backup every single photo I take,...

I am almost ready to stop using Kindle on Windows because the Nook app is so superior. It's not like Amazon to be so ignorant of their customer base. I guess MS better fortify that base by getting...

Also, if you are thinking about cancelling your Surface 3 order so you can get the costlier model, with more RAM etc., like I just did, you will discover that you cannot cancel the order at all....

"Sometimes I press and hold the power button in order to just reset the thing and it comes back on, finally, but not in a cold boot; everything is the way I left it."

Interesting that it...

With the 8.1 update I assumed I would be able to voice navigate to a contacts address using turn by turn Navigation. Can you point out exactly what I am supposed to "say" to Cortana to accomplish...

Under promise and over deliver, that is always a good strategy, unlike the flawless gesture swiping we saw years ago for the Xbox that has never really developed into anything useful.

I love the new share capabilities, however I am puzzled by the inability to simply save a photo to OneDrive. I do not upload all my photos every time to OneDrive, because I am usually shooting...

I notice on the Lumia 1020, the Cortana live tile has appropriate sized text on this new layout, however the Calendar live tile is tiny text. Is there any way to increase that text size? I have...

I would love to see a Surface RT with a 13.3 screen. Because, I OFTEN setup new Win 8.1 pc's for people and they OFTEN go looking for Chrome to install, do a search for it at Google.com, and for...

I was certainly a little perturbed about your tirade on the interface changes a while back, but maybe the coffee hadn't kicked in yet. Anyway, these are all great changes to preserve sanity for...

I'm unclear about what applications can be created for Metro. For example, is it even possible to create QuickBooks using the Modern UI, or is that an example of something that will never happen...

I would like to see them put a newly installed App right on the Start Screen at the front. I am in the habit of doing this on my phone, so that I don't forget about an app I may have grabbed...

These Surface tablets have become incredible mobile tools for me. OneDrive integration and the multitasking ability alone (swiping quickly in from the left side) is far ahead of the other guys....

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.

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.
