now we just need a eye icon next to the music icon for Cortana.

Too many steps having to lead the camera app, and go into lences just to get to the same point.

Paul, something you might want ot add to your article as Tip #3.

If you use a headset, through cable, or bluetooth, they will each also get their own volume slider. one for headset, and...

I understand this is a budget phone, but this is the way I see it. On an 8GB phone you can install a minimun amount of apps, enough to get you going, but if you want to really want to take...

What I'm concerned, as a user, is the pricing.

Usually, most WP8 apps went for $1.99, W8 for $2.99 and Xbox $9.99; That would give a developer about $15 if someone bought all three.

Given the compass and the hieroglyphics, I'm pretty sure that was the point.

Something tells me Microsoft is just afraid of entering a new market and failing. So they let Google and Apple test out the water before. Problem is, of course, as you say, they are always...

WIth everything that Google is doing, I can only see two outcomes:

1) Microsoft keeps on, making them look like the overpriced evil company

2) Microsoft is forsed to lower their...

Is there an option somewhere to hide the search and power options from the start screen?

Over the last two years I have learned to use Windows, in such a why that typing on the start screen...

If we add the range from 520 800 plus about half of the "other" category, that's about 76.5% of phones running on 512MB of memory.

Devs are always complaining that there is not enough...

While I agree that smaller phones are prefered by women and children, I believe this phone will/could have an equal share on demand from both big men with big pockets, as well as women with their...

It doesn't matter if you win by an inch or a mile winning's winning.

I'm sorry, that was stupid, but I just "had" to do it... in any case, I wouldn't consider winning when 50% of the...

Remember Microsoft Works, it was like the washed out Office for the home, only had Word (full feature) and a couple other programs, nothing major.

Like you say Paul, they could take the Web...

"Finally, the version of Update 3 described here includes only Microsoft's code"

Now we just need Microsoft to buy Nokia fast, so we can also get the firmware and drivers in the beta...

Most people I know wait until the first Service Pack of each version of Windows before upgrading. They think that Service Pack 1 is the "fixed version."

Microsoft should just call this...

You always pay premium pricing when buying after point of sale.

W8.1 as an OEM license is of course cheaper when you get it with a new system - which by the way it's optimized for Windows 8...

last week I opened Xbox music on my W8 PC to play with it for a while, to get used to it.

it automatically started downloading music. I though great, free stuff. then I found out...

Whatever you two.. I still believe Windows 8 is the holy grail of OSes

LOL

if it's a Latitude sadly we won't get EPP.

however the original Latitude 10 shipped for like $800 or something like that, ridiculous if you ask me for an Atom chip.

$400 on the other...

Maybe they'll care more, now that it's their own phones they're trying to push.

Hopefully we start seeing some WP8 exclusives like we saw with the Xbox, instead of what they've been doing...

Keep the video chip in mind. If this is native video it will use the video chip from the Surface, instead of an onboard chip like the USB to DP adapters use.

Intel chips support two videos...

It's a sad thing... and people may say, well Microsoft is letting Skype run independently, but then there was always Photosynth.

One more thing, the Surface Pro IS A TABLET....PERIOD. If the computer can be held by one or two hands and is touch-based it's a tablet. Sometimes I think that the Microsoft journalists and...

Monday, August 26, 2013 - 1:14pm

I don't want to sound pesimist, but really?

Nokia should have taken a clue from the Surface RT fiasco. yes, I would buy a Windows based table over anything else, but everybody I know would...

Tuesday, August 13, 2013 - 4:50pm

Microsoft said they would release a new version on a yearly basis. If they release it no, people will demand 8.2 in August next year. If they hold on to it, at least they have 14 months to work...

Monday, August 12, 2013 - 2:35pm

Another feature that didn't make the article, but that I like is the little arrow on the start screen, so just like you can swipe on the phone to get the complete list of apps, you can now click a...

Dell is not up for sale.

Michael wants to buy back his company and have complete controll, without having to report to stock holders.

What Dell is doing is basically looking for a...

this is not so far fetched for Microsoft. Isn't that exactly the way the Xbox works?

Sell the hardware at profit or even little loss, and profit on the games and service.

Another...

Sadly this does not affect me at all. Since the service is unavailable in Panama, I cannot rent or buy movies even if I wanted to.

Service which by the way, also renders a big portion of...

Even though the other update is already in the works, I guess they were forced to push this update, mainly to rename SmartDJ to Radio.

I mean we wouldn't want UI changes as well as name...

Tuesday, November 27, 2012 - 8:04pm

I have MSDN access, so I'm not sure if you have the same resources from TechNet. You need to install a non-VL version. As far as MSDN, I had to download and install (re-install) Windows 8 (not...
