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...

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.

"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.

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)

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.

Monday, June 10, 2013 - 8:12pm

I hope they don't fix reputation; I like to kill other players' horses in Friendly mode on Red Dead Redemption. I probably shouldn't admit that, but it's fun to hear them flip out and scream at...

Thursday, May 30, 2013 - 9:59am

Wow, lot of changes. I actually have to take an intermission in the middle of this.

When I purchased the Xbox 360, it wasn't for the games. It was for entertainment purposes: DVD, Netflix, Kinect, Video Kinect (that only one person used with me...), and so on. I have become...

The Kinect game I want is BOXING. I'm a former Golden Glove boxer and I'm always looking for a motion-based game for boxing. Kinect Sports boxing is pretty good for a 1st gen game: recognises...

Tough, either or Surface.

Surface (RT & Pro)

Monday, May 6, 2013 - 12:23pm

I agree. Microsoft does not advertise features of Windows Phone. I don't understand why this is. Just as Samsung advertises one feature at a time, Microsoft could do the same with Windows Phone...

Thursday, May 2, 2013 - 12:21pm

Call me old-fashioned, but I still use,, and instead of apps on Windows 8. If you're on the desktop, what can be more efficient that just switching tabs in...

"..there is a persistent problem in all Windows Phone "metro style apps...""

It's safe to say that you never used a Windows Phone before. You're making that assumption based on screen...
