Sad to see Microsoft gave up on user centric Hubs. Now we have to install too many Apps, as we now have to play Whack a Mole.

Xbox Music is really poor compared to the previous superior WP7...

Samsung S5 ? - You obviously did not ask Cortana for that recommendation did you?

Friday, April 11, 2014 - 3:27am

Cool.

So can someone find the Registry key to enable Cortana ?

It must be in there somewhere right.

Nope, I think you, and Microsoft, are getting this all wrong.

Simple ARM based tablets are the future for the mass business and consumer user NOT complex slow, and hot Intel. Win32 Tablets...

Yeah as C# developer, some recognition of .NET this year and the great work by Xamarin, I feel that there is some future in Microsoft somewhere. Very brave bold to move .NET open source. Build...

I got rather frustrated with Leo Laporte, not understanding, and being rather un informed on Windows Phone 8.1, and being rude about Windows Developers and Non US markets, and showing now...

Monday, April 7, 2014 - 8:15am

So what we saw in Build, was the Windows team still in transition, not quite clear where its going towards Windows 9 or thresholds. So developers are left a little confused as to whether their...

Shame is a long way from being ready. Many of us were expecting this to be at least Beta available for this Build. I mean how difficult is it, when they had the iPad version ready for two years...

Live Tiles in the Start Menu. That is just crazy, but bold and interesting.

Good to see that Microsoft are getting their mojo back, with some sight of more innovation than messy right...

Wednesday, April 2, 2014 - 5:20pm

All rather interesting an impressive, a it should be after 18 Months development (Half a traditional OS cycle)

So it was rather a shame that Windows Phone 8.1 is still some way off being...

I cannot fond any Scott Gu sessions. Maybe he does some of the Keynote.

There are quite a few sessions on Windows Phone, with some changes in API. I also note a few sessions on future of ....

And so the (casual productivity) battle begins.

Friday, March 28, 2014 - 2:51pm

It is a worry that why its taking so long to get Office for Windows Metro out, if they have had Office for iPad ready for a year or so. Basically all we have got is Office with Bigger ribbon...

Hopefully Satya will realise that Microsoft has no real future in Devices, and as a Software guy return Microsoft to a "Software and Services" company.

Xbox One, just like the most of the...

Tuesday, March 18, 2014 - 3:17pm

Microsoft will scoff that these watches are not so good at running MS Excel.

Google are the most innovative Tech Company for use developers, Microsoft is just a lame follower these days....

Monday, March 17, 2014 - 5:33pm

Remember this is Microsoft. They do not understand the consumers needs. Looks stupid compared to the Nokia Lumina 2520, which is sold in Europe, has LTE and GPS as standard.

Which is why we...

Hardly a surprise, the Metro Apps are pretty sad set, even after 18 months. Consumers and Enterprise have rejected Metro Apps. Name any independent Metro Apps that has grabbed any significant...

Tuesday, March 11, 2014 - 6:06pm

My Nexus 7 has got very little use since my Nokia Lumia 2520. My eyesight just cannot take the strain, when I am relaxing use. But why are Apple so far out in front with their incredible high...

Monday, March 10, 2014 - 11:36am

Pictures are not very flattering, looks pig ugly in my opinion, some colour versions would have help overcome the poor looks. Otherwise the build and look of Iphone 5, still reigns. I would still...

Sunday, March 9, 2014 - 8:07am

Will we get the opportunity to avoid this Update 1? Call me a lantern & pitchfork wielding angry villager, but all these are really ugly messy set of confusing features. Windows 8.1 was good...

Sunday, March 9, 2014 - 7:57am

These really are trivial features, when we all know that Desktop users have rejected Metro Apps. Time to throw in the towel on all this Metro on the Desktop fidgeting.

Please get to work...

Saturday, March 8, 2014 - 6:23am

Speaking as a BMW 325 driver, build quality has also be supported by performance. No Wacom digitizer, LTE, or GPS is really not so impressive. Still happy with my Lumia 2520, until I see decent...

Friday, March 7, 2014 - 10:18am

Paul could you confirm. Is this a variant of Windows 8.1 Full (i.e. Desktop) or Windows 8.1 RT.

One day Microsoft will have to start offering free versions of Windows RT without any...

Tuesday, March 4, 2014 - 6:55pm

Well I am glad they 'followed the data' to justify that 'improvements' to the non touch experience. And so they end up with a totally messing up the Metro experience.

So now convince me...

Friday, February 28, 2014 - 2:09pm

Yep, either pay $25 year for Windows, or be subject to imposed Ads

Friday, February 28, 2014 - 1:29pm

Nokia X makes a lot of sense for Microsoft. This is a common Microsoft strategy, Embrace, Extend, Extinguish, which has worked, and also caused some legal problems (Java) in the past. .NET...

Monday, February 24, 2014 - 6:41pm

OK I will believe this when all these OEMs actually deliver some attractive phones. I seem to remember being in a similar line up of OEMs three years ago at the birth of Windows Phone 7. That...

Monday, February 24, 2014 - 6:36pm

Its simple. If Microsoft /Nokia cannot deliver a Windows Phone for less than $100 then it has no option but to go with this Android base, to get into the market.
Fact is that the Lumia 520...

Sunday, February 23, 2014 - 2:09pm

Well we have not seen so much from Joe B, because the last Windows Phone update was some 15 months ago. The Windows phone team have never been in so much of a hurry. At least Joe would have got...

Thursday, February 20, 2014 - 6:10pm

Yep the decline of Windows Phone is quite startling. Mostly due the doubts over the future of Nokia in Microsoft hands, but the move towards Android Apps centric User Interface in WP8.1 has shown...
