This news is great and all, but will this affect THE LOOK of the MSN homepage on Windows 8? I love the modern/metro look of that page. Viewing MSN on anything other than Windows 8 is appalling....

I don't think I've seen Paul respond as much to comments than with this post. It is clear that he LOVES his Nokia Lumia 1020. Now if I could only convince my coworker that her 1020 is in fact...

Why is everyone praising this guy? Geez, he was quite snarky. Makes me wish for Iyaz.

I can understand when Thurrott gets that way: he uses the products. Padre seems like he hasn't...

Walt, your comment shouldn't be a response to mine as it has nothing to do with what I mentioned. Next time, just make a separate comment and do not address to me.

Whoa, sounds to me that you are a candidate for a heart attack. You better do some power walking, jogging or at the very least, hand exercises if scrolling with your thumb or finger is causing...

"I hate that half on the screen, half off the screen text in the UI." You're kidding, right? That is extremely efficient and effective UI. I do agree that Skype's use of Metro design in general...

Microsoft used to have UI guidelines, but that changed to help lure more developers and to dismiss those he didn't follow the guidelines to begin with. However, Microsoft has been following...

I'm a complete noob when it comes to this. I get an 0x104 error message. I have Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 8.1 Update 1.

I like all these improvements EXCEPT the taskbar showing up when you mouse down. Odd.

Friday, February 7, 2014 - 8:26pm

I am NOT digging seeing the taskbar appear in the Metro apps. That makes NO sense.

Internet Explorer 11 is my main browser, but I like to use Chrome & Firefox for testing purposes: making sure my website looks & works the same everywhere. However, as soon as I get home...

I guess it doesn't matter; never got the email. Guess I'm not a loyal Microsoft customer: Zune HD & all accessories, Dell Venue Pro WP7, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8.1...

Monday, December 23, 2013 - 1:15pm

I guess there is still hope, cause I still use a Dell Venue Pro, Windows Phone 7 device, remember that one? Still no email, but I'll wait. Hmm, I know I'm not going to buy extra storage when the...

I came to Windows Phone for TWO reasons: 1) the Metro-style applications, found them more fun to look at & use. 2) the integrated experience.

While I agree with Paul that separating the...

Sanford & Son. YES!

They would say it's a tablet, not a laptop. End of story.

Thursday, October 31, 2013 - 2:16pm

Hold your tongue! erm, fingers.

Thursday, October 31, 2013 - 2:14pm

Exactly. That has been Microsoft's Achilles' Heel.

Thursday, October 31, 2013 - 12:18pm

How can this be? The hardware is nearly identical on these two consoles. Is the operating system holding back the Xbox One? That can be the only answer. If so, then Microsoft needs to make...

Monday, October 28, 2013 - 12:41pm

I wonder how many people are going to complain about the single viewing angle...

Thursday, October 10, 2013 - 12:37pm

Geez, you're never gonna be able to retire from writing if all this tech drama keeps going.

This facebook app is slower than a turtle riding on the shell of a snail.

Tuesday, October 1, 2013 - 12:45pm

"Windows phone is good, but it's not quite there..." What is Windows Phone missing that iOS has? A true notification center? That would be about it. You prefer a disjointed experience. I...

Tuesday, October 1, 2013 - 12:39pm

Same thing happens to me. I don't you hit the nail on the head though: "It's like they are afraid of it and are afraid to go against the crowd."

Someone once told me they are going to get...

While Open Office, with it's MS Office compatibility, is good enough for most people, but calling Microsoft's Office bloated & mediocre makes you sound like a fool.

Monday, September 9, 2013 - 11:04am

So wish it had pen support. Maybe after selling some organs, I can get a Surface Pro 2 instead. (My organs ain't worth much)

Thursday, August 29, 2013 - 10:50am

Hey Paul, any chance you can make your embedded photos clickable so we can see the full size version? Would have been great for the Lumia 1020 articles.

Wednesday, August 21, 2013 - 11:59am

Defender of the Crown! That would be SO fantastic. I can hear the music now, while the title comes on... Great game!

Wednesday, June 12, 2013 - 7:08pm

No no no! Don't fix this. I don't use profanity or taunt anyone over the microphone, but I have to continue killin' those horses in Friendly Free Roam of Red Dead Redemption. Heck, I don't even...

Also, the Calendar & Compass seem to be "live". The weather icon no longer says the same temperature all the time... Perhaps that is live too.
