When they bring back Zune from WP7 then they will have a reasonable Music App. This garbage, doesn't even display artists when not in play.

Windows Phone is now in steep Decline in Europe. iPhone sales are now once again greater in Italy than Windows Phone, and Blackberry usage is still much higher than WP in the UK.

So its...

Well at least one Seattle based Tech Company knows how to do effective Marketing (the other doesn't)

Paul I was responding to your paragraph implying that Microsoft has failed (given up?) on Surface ARM. In my opinion that would be a shame and wrong. And I am writing this on my excellent Lumia...

So are Microsoft really going to give up on ARM Tablets, and the consumer mobile space ? - What about all those Nokia Engineers ?

Microsoft needs to provide a strategy on what thier...

Inking done well would be impressive utility with OneNote. But it will require great marketing to convince Business and Consumers that this is a killer app feature.

It always ends up with...

An explanation on how to rip our CD collection, into the cloud and across our devices without receiving adverts would be nice. Many of my generation bought our music rights in CD, and ripped onto...

So how will Cortana work on the Xbox, now that Microsoft has killed off Kinect.

Surely Cortana will be upset, that she will not be coming to living room.

Tuesday, May 13, 2014 - 5:41pm

Please can Microsoft explain sort by ' Noteworthy'.

I developed a Free game Tank Commander 3D, under games/ Strategy. And Microsoft deemed it to be least, lowest Noteworthy, 478th out of...

So if the Back Button is so great, why did Microsoft dump the back button on Windows Tablets (Windows RT)

I love the WP Back Button Functionality, so pretty p*ssed off that I had to litter...

As a Windows RT fan this makes me a little depressed.

But that picture is a killer, iPad works great in Portrait mode. Microsoft Tablets really stink in Portrait. A Note taking 8inch...

None of these proposed fixes will make Xbox Music compelling enough to the modern consumers now bought into Google Play and iTunes.
Live Tiles on Zune on WP7 was attractive to non Windows...

Wow that really would p*ss of their OEMs (partners).

Unelss they 'promised' only to build 250,000 units, and then all the Tech Bloggers would then just claim that device is a sales failure...

One day Microsoft will realise that Transparent Tiles for their WP Apps would be a good idea.

Now enjoying background image on my Lumina 925 so its annoying that Microsoft themselves do...

And this is why ARM and Windows RT is the future. Intel for frequent mains connected hard core Laptops maybe.

But for true mobility, Intel will NEVER catch up with ARM, which is why...

Saturday, April 26, 2014 - 8:33am

They have got a long way to catch up with WP7: Zune

Zune had Live Tiles, displaying various Artist, even NOT currently playing. Kinda cool, inviting the user to open Zune, to play.

So if this is correct, then WACCOM pen digitisers comming to Windows RT (ARM) devices is a really compelling feature.

Microsoft really need to market their WACCOM digitiser support to...

Its a Paradox.
Microsoft needs to sort out, and replace Windows 8 by a revamped, Metroless, User Interface pretty damn quick to recover both consumer and business user base. Windows 9 needs...

Reading preview - Not available, hardly ever appears on most web sites. .

Does a site have to be HTML5 compatible for the Reading preview to appear, or is this another US only feature ?

Monday, April 21, 2014 - 10:59am

Microsoft Team going backwards on Xbox Music:

a) Bring back Live Tiles of Artists - aka WP7: Zune
b) Reliable Album covers. - Very weak and incorrect search and tagging

Friday, April 18, 2014 - 2:13pm

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...

Monday, April 14, 2014 - 1:49pm

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

Friday, April 11, 2014 - 3:27am


So can someone find the Registry key to enable Cortana ?

It must be in there somewhere right.

Wednesday, April 9, 2014 - 2:20pm

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...
