As a subscriber to Rhapsody over 10 years, I must say that I am looking forward to the Beats launch; heck I even have my user name already reserved. Why? Because of the family pricing. For the...

While I agree that things are looking up for Windows Phone, #3 still translates into the Linux of the mobile phone world, with Google playing the role of Windows and Apple playing the role of,...

For work, I doubt that I will moving off the desktop anytime soon. I use SQL Server tools as well as Visual Studio.

But for home/companion devices, I could get by with RT with the...

I know! Fly developers to New Zealand on Oct 17t.h, so that they can get working on updates ASAP when the staggered release starts. If the app is being used on the other side of the world, one...

Why didn't MS do this for RT also instead of just butchering the calendar app?

Oh please let it not be Sinofsky. He helped cause the whole current mess MS is in. Win 8.0 could have been 8.1 instead but for Sinofsky's stubbornness and unwillingness to compromise.

I have a MS account with a Yahoo address as the primary login. What I would like to do is to set up an Outlook.com email address and add it to my existing account without messing up my current...

Well, I would say that taking pictures is a core use of a smartphone while touchless controls isn't. I mean, saving memories is something somebody wants to **do** with a phone. Touchless...

I guess it's time to get the EU to force some ballots on Android then!

They sure have their work cut out for them! Right now, the Windows displays are some of the saddest sights you can see in a Best Buy right now. At best, they suffer just mere stupidity like...

How about having a computer run in Kiosk mode with the Desktop as the app? Wouldn't Microsoft love that?!

Some media apps missing in action:

-- Amazon Cloud Music Player: Heck, I might even pay Amazon to use it (right now I'm using Google's locker) if they ever release a WP client.

--...

I pay Slacker for the Plus plan (roughly equivalent to Pandora One) and listen to it at work mostly from my phone. Software is a bit buggy, but otherwise is a really great service.

Yay! Two of these things (the black screen on calls and the loss of connectivity) have been annoyances the last couple weeks.

The fact that these types of updates are released is one of...

This is a firmware update (not an OS one), and to AT&T's credit (for once) they are actually rolling it out promptly. On the other hand, AT&T is a absolute train wreck when it comes to...

Another minor quibble. What is the deal with just having portrait mode? Both Rhapsody & Slacker can manage landscape, and they came to market sooner!

Friday, March 22, 2013 - 2:24pm

Outanding! Thank you MS and Pandora.

However, one big raspberry to AT&T (the "premier" WP carrier here in the States) which had the 920s configured to not allow the screen to stay on...

1. RT could be a lot more useful now if the price could come down, or if MS was willing to try its luck in the 7" market. That way, the RT would be a lot less of a risk. Pricing yourself to...

Thanks for this.

MS really needs to improve the experience on this. At minimum, have a "use desktop over Metro" (or whatever they want to call it today) and a "Use Metro over desktop"...

I thought the article says that Amazon set up a web app to bypass the policies. If I'm understanding is correct, there isn't much Apple can do about that. They can't outlaw the Internet (at...

No abandoned Microsoft Bob books? Boy, I'm disappointed!

Tuesday, January 15, 2013 - 2:00pm

I think you're spot on here. I purchased a Gateway CX-120 some years ago (still have it) for my daughter. While it was good for some things, it really wasn't good enough to be a "goto" PC. It...

Boy am I disappointed. I was hoping for the ATIV S!
