I agree with the sentiments, the local scout was very handy and such a cool thing to show to friends when looking for something in middle of a city. It needs to be put on the Cortana main screen...

Your assessment seems rather dated to be honest. DSLRs are very useful, but amazingly bulky. Phones like the 1020 do have the quality. 6 lens elements and OIS and live view. The 38 megapixel lens...

I am still a big fan of the Nokia 1020. Being a keen photographer the camera's abilities are what swung it for me, The add on camera grip makes holding it as a camera and the ability to put it on...

I have installed WP8.1 and had to switch the theme syncing off. Of course I did the picture through the tiles thing, and used the orange theme. All the text on my phone is orange but the...

We always hear of Android fans saying that if the Nokia Lumias ran Android they would buy them in a heartbeat. The S5 confirms my theory its the rather uninspiring look of the Samsung that makes...

The specs are almost irrelevant, its the user experience that matters, it may have a quad core, but if the UI is laggy, the specs don't mean much. Its a wonderful generalisation saying that the...

I do hope the logging out/exit/shutdown/Go Away!! issue is sorted out as well.

Ah you mean a fish supper, though how you would wrap up that in an electronic newspaper from New Jersey would be a bit of a challenge. By the way, I haven't seen newspaper in fish n chip shops...

I reallly love all this intergration, makes me smile when I go to my PC and there is the stuff I was working on, on my phone.

The Bing apps I like, the have a quality feel, though I need...

Residing outside the US I have to use a 3rd party app. Podcast Lounge is wonderful, doesn't do different speeds but it does auto download.

Microsoft really have to get their finger out and...

I am still having problems with Xbox music. It has a habit of listing the album tracks twice and when you click on a track its not always the one you wanted. Occassionaly I will get an error code...

At last!! The playlist is now as easy to edit and add to as it was on the Symbian system old Nokia 5800. Hear or choose a track and add it to whatever playlist you like. Whoohoo! The older...

For me the cost of Apple is the major turn off for me. I will quite happily spend a bit more for a better quality product, everything from shoes to cars and even wallpaper. However when seeing...

I still think it's too early for figures on the 1020. Its only just been released here in Europe. I only got mine on the 25th the, UK release date.

Since then I have overwhelmed by it. The...

I know how you feel, as much as I loved the 800, I felt stuck with the OS in that it wasn't going to be updated anymore. Finally got the 1020 when it was released in the UK. It feels and looks...

I'm wondering if the pick up on Windows 7 is due to enterprise finally moving on from XP. Where I am new PCs are appearing with 7 on them.

That last line was brilliantly done. Excellent.

-V- I wonder how much time and effort has gone into books about supercars? Ferrari's Lambos etc. I'm guessing the market share of those is in single digits.

Silly question.

This method of 'zooming' is not new, I did it 10 years ago. However, I was using a medium format camera with a negative size of 6x7cms. To do it now in a very like fashion with a phone is...

Love how Nokia keep you locked in to their phones by simply being amazing. Be it price or quality. Can't wait till November when my update is due. If there is a 64GB version that will be more...

I agree with Alvatrus, when it comes to the capabilities of an DSLR, a phone simply cannot match the flexibility and the control that the DLSR gives. However, just having such a useable camera...

My 2 year contract with the Lumia 800 is up in November, and this is the phone I have been waiting onto upgrade to. Even though its not a 'real' camera its abilities more than make up for it. To...

Things certainly looked more polished, though I may wait for the official release in August. I get the feeling it was like going from Vista to 7. The same but ooh so much better.

Boy can...

There is nothing quite as opinionated as a passionate geek.

I use quite a few of the medium tiles in the middle of the screen, then put related items round them. With Maps its Google maps or Ordnance Survey (UK) in the middle with Nokia drive, Nokia maps...

From my Bloke's manual on life. 'If all else fails, read the instructions'.

Goes for fixing cars, putting IKEA furniture together, setting up stuff and using tech.

I know about your reservations about the size of the keyboard, having shovel sized mitts myself, why can't I have a man sized keyboard? On the same theme I find it difficult to find a big enough...

MarkH. I just plugged the phone into my PC and Zune. Checked for updates. It said there was one available. Clicked on okay and let it get on with it.

Having fun with the new tile arrangement. Full screen as well. Updated it at midnight after I had a quick check here in the UK. I'm tickled pink, taupe and crimson. Delighted.

I miss the convenience of having a spare battery. It's just so handy knowing you have a reliable no nonsense back up power supply. With my DSLR I have 4 spare batteries because you know that on a...
