Transport cards would be awesome, such as Myki, Opal & Oyster. Imagine being able to just wave your wrist beside the reader, without having to activate an app first. And if you don't have an...

If you combined this with OneDrive unlimited storage, could you have say an Apple TV (or Xbox), with iTunes (media centre) loaded on this, the library index files stored locally, and the media...

Its a roku with a browser. There are many sites that stream, but aren't on roku and/or apple tv. This is for them (esp non US sites). All the roku sites stream via the web. Now those that don't...

Having just spent 8 weeks driving 15 countries, with my Nokia 820 as my GPS (and sometimes my music player when my iPod decided it couldn't find its music), I think "replaceable battery" is a very...

I hate to say this, but the changes to OneDrive seem like a deal breaker. I'm currently travelling around Europe with a Dell Windows 8 Pro, which I'm using to sync my photos to OneDrive, which the...

It's not just the maps and Drive (which my Android using friend is now considering as a major reason to switch to WP after a side by side comparison in country Victoria), but the Collections...

My unlocked 820 (in Australia but Asian sourced) 14176.243 last night while I was watching Windows Weekly, although I had already gotten Cyan via the reset method.

The only Google I still use is street view, YouTube and Gmail forwarded to

For YouTube, I don't even bother with the app. I just use Simple and easy. What's the...

Apple is offering three versions of each model and the pricing isn't terrible for the upgrades.

Paul, these are CONTRACT prices. Lumias are those prices for an outright contractless...

For those outside the US, if Xbox music died tomorrow very few would care when Nokia MixRadio is available, free. Plus it is a lot less US-centric in it's catalogue.

Xbox Music seems to be...

Speaking of OneNote, I decided to try to understand it after Paul & Mary-Joe's lavish praises on WW. Once I worked out the difference between a section and a page, it is just so wonderful! And...

I must admit that I prefer a software button for photos - touching the screen keeps the phone so much steadier and helps avoid shake blur IMHO. I have the Lumia 820.

Ouch! $14 for a $2 cable. $3 with delivery from China if you can wait the month it takes.

Suggest you read the whole article.

I'm using Here to plan and my 820 to navigate a 12,000 km (7,500 m) eastern & central Europe trip later this year. I have set up a "collection" for each day, including way points. By using the...

Don't forget that some enterprise licences also include access to the Home User Program (HUP). If your employer has this (ask them!) you may be able to get a single copy of Office 365, the full...

Maybe the current SIM is 3G or 3.5G (HSDPA) and not LTE? In which case "LTE in a few months" would be correct. Just a thought and parsing the various statements.

I wish the Mini would have a choice of RT or not RT. I want a mini for travelling, synching photos with my camera to onedrive & facebook, map & research whilst away, but itunes syncing is...

If they do an 8" Surface "Pro" ie not RT, I'll buy one immediately. Why? It is basically a touchscreen RT but with the option to move photos from my camera, and equally important (this is the deal...

Whilst there are many improvements, as usual Microsoft has taken two steps forward and one back with this update. Ok that's harsh, say 4 forward. But some features have gone backwards:

Gday Paul. Now that it is 2 years down the track, I wonder what your thoughts are regarding MCE and/or DVD. I believe MS was right in removing MCE, although it should've been an add-on to any...

Paul, have you considered running android apps via bluestacks? I know you've talked about it on WW but I don't recall you ever mentioning actually using it.

I use it on my desktop,...

Any news when WP8 version will offer file transfers? I'm sure the Android version had this 2yrs ago :(

Don't blame Microsoft, blame your carrier, and blame yourself for, a carrier-issued phone.

Avoid this in future by buying the phone directly - without the carrier software on it, which is...

Almost perfect. Can't transfer files eg pics etc. More useful than video calls on a mobile considering the bandwidth for most mobile users.

App updates seem to have frozen recently. Used to get them every coupla days, been almost a fortnight now and none. Yet when I manually search, there they are.

Anyone else with similar...

Paul, I'm an idiot. I just repeated what you wrote! Feel free to laugh at my stupidity and not publish it!

Sorry :(

Serves me right for reading whilst watching podcasts! The male...

Apologies if someone already said this, but if you want everything stored locally as well as SkyDrive (eg on a PC), right-click all the folders under SkyDrive and choose "make available offline)....

Good. But still waiting for the ability to send/receive files via Skype.

I have the 820 in Australia. Bought it outright, not via a carrier, and have had Amber for almost a fortnight.
