I want to +1 the issue with the Metro and WP8.1 Photo apps. MS sold me on organizing by tags over folders with Photo Gallery. 3 years in and there is no support for that in WP. Last I looked W8...

I googled "standing desk drawing board" and got nothing. I'm interested in copying. I haven't found a good affordable standing desk. Could you or someone else fill me in?

It's so rare to find comments that add to a piece these days -- especially with the armies of commenters who seem to spend all their time attacking Microsoft. Thank you and thank you, Paul, for...

Can a 1280 x 800 display do split screen with Windows 8.1? (By split screen I mean two display to apps on the same display at the same time.) With Windows 8.0 displays under 1366 couldn't.

I want to delete and then re-sync my Cloud Collection eventually to clean it up. Could someone direct me to where I do that from?

So you get instant small back-up or later full sized or both? If you set it to WiFi back-up does it upload a little one over cell and write over that when you get on WiFi?
And do you have to...

That function removes what to me was a major barrier to buying an Windows RT machine. RT may not have Outlook available but it at least has most/some Outlook functionality when offline. Thanks...

Thanks. Yeah, I do have an Xbox Pass. That would beg the question: why let MS match your music when it will on match music in its library? Rather than choosing from all of Xbox music library, I'd...

Is the Xbox music cloud sync function working well enough to mess with, yet?

This story clarifies (or claims) that the Home versions allows 5 different users and the business SKUs allow 5 machines with 1 only 1 user ID per subscription....

If you have one $99 (undiscounted) O365 Home Premium subscription, you are allowed 5 installs. It sounds like you can have 5 different Microsoft Account IDs with one subscription.

I think people are talking about that free Windows Media Center upgrade key many people got expiring not the discounted W7 to W8 for $15 expiring.

I think many people want to wait until Office 2013 is out before installing Windows 8. Starting afresh with both will be simpler (although upgrading both at the same time may be more change than...

Does anyone (or can anyone figure out how to) open their SkyDrive-synced Windows IE Favorites in WP8? I depend on my bookmarks to function and can’t get them to open from the WP SkyDrive App, the...

Just to add to the muddle...I'm in the US and have W7, WP8, and a Music Pass. Some of my music just showed up on my WP8 device without ever syncing the phone to any computer.

Answering my own Q: Search for "ASUS VivoTab TF810C" to distinguish from RT.

I held an ATIV 700 Pro at an MS Store. It was heavier and it won't get the battery life...

In previous versions of Windows there was an option to use part of the memory of an SD card kind of like RAM. I don't remember if that was SuperFetch or some other program. And I don’t know if it’...

I got an "Access Denied" error and my comment disappeared. Then 2 copies of it posted.

Thursday, November 15, 2012 - 15:32

I concur. And the higher price of the HP compare to the ATIV seems warranted to me as well. A late October HP press release says the availability date is Nov 14th. I called the MS Store Online...

I'm in the same boat as robertnd2. But I'm ready to buy the HP Envy X2 - sight unseen. The MIcrosoft Store online is taking pre-orders at $849 (with no tax). Whether today's release date is real...

AT&T is blocking Facetime users with "Unlimited" data plans from non-WiFi Facetime calls. Skype users with same plans will be lucky if we escape that.

They may drop that news at 6pm on a Friday. That'd be "a taking out the trash" announcment.

I forced the Tango update on my ATT Samsung S. It now has Visual Voicemail. It didn't give me an option of using Visual Voicemail or not. I'd hope that means ATT is not going to charge extra...

I have a Zune Pass but am not a gamer. I wouldnt be adverse to buying an Xbox if it served as a media hub around the house, but I really hope I dont end having to pay for some Xbox Live gaming...

Thanks much Waethorn. Yeah, Everything I own is Win 7 Pro or Ult. Thats not an issue. Guests will probably bring Macs and other configurations but my two (and sometimes 3 )machines are the ones that...

Paul - Last I noticed, you were contemplating whether to build a new server box into SBS or WHS. Im in a similar home office situation (but with far less knowledge that you) am interested in how that...
