I don't believe lock-in will happen with the Nokia X line. If anything, people will expect the Google ecosystem, realize the Nokia X line does NOT have that, and they will jump to a Samsung, etc...

I still don't understand what the problem is with the keyboard & mouse user experience. It absolutely amazes me that anyone has issues with it. Yet the folks at Microsoft and others keep...

At this point--and I say this as an American--the US market can BE thrown under the bus. We have ignorant consumers anyway, in my opinion.

Sunday, February 23, 2014 - 6:53pm

That is where I think Microsoft could have help itself the most. Devising a much easier porting platform for Android and iOS devs. The only heavy lifting that devs should have to do is the front...

I don't see your logic. Why would Lenovo make any more of an impression than Nokia? As an American consumer, I had MUCH more faith in Nokia as a brand than Lenovo. If a consumer is going to...

Sunday, February 23, 2014 - 6:48pm

I couldn't agree with you more. I already get FB integrated with the ME tile, and it looks like Microsoft is gutting that and making it completely useless now. I think this is just their lame...

I'm hoping that once the Windows 8 SkyDrive app is updated to OneDrive that proper visibility of files & folders shared TO me will be added. If I use the SkyDrive (now OneDrive) app on...

Wednesday, February 19, 2014 - 1:20pm

Not seeing it for Windows 8, however. And, interestingly, if you go to Outlook.com and click the droplist you'll see Outloo, People, Calendar and SkyDrive, not OneDrive. BUT, if you click on...

I'm not seeing the battery indicator. Of course, since I don't play games on my Xbox One and I only use the controller if I absolutely HAVE to, it's not a big deal. Just an observation. I do...

I am so incredibly sickened by where Windows Phone is going. It is basically turning into hybrid clone of iOS and Android. It was extremely convenient to be able to jump right into video or...

Sunday, February 16, 2014 - 6:30pm

Well, they way they are apparently gutting all the best aspects of Windows Phone and making it more "RT-like" instead of taking those very bits and inculcating them into RT and Windows 8, yes, I...

And there will be no compelling reason to purchase either. Might as well go back to feature phones.

Thursday, February 13, 2014 - 2:38pm

I agree, the hub was one of the unique features of the OS, and I believe had the most potential if Microsoft had gotten its collective head out and really developed it. Now it's no better than...

Sunday, February 9, 2014 - 6:38pm

I agree with a lot of what you wrote. I think that Windows 8 suffered from almost exactly what Windows Phone 7 did. It was a false start. The difference is that Windows Phone 8 was exactly the...

Sunday, February 9, 2014 - 6:25pm

Seriously? "Throw metro in front of your average 50+ year old" and they are lost? Hmm. I'm 51. Most of my friends of the same age have had no issues with Windows 8. And a good many of them...

Sunday, February 9, 2014 - 5:55pm

The problem is that THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG WITH THE MOUSE & KEYBOARD INTERFACE. It works exactly as I'd hoped it would. I was angry that with Windows 8 that the mouse DIDN'T act like my...

Sunday, February 9, 2014 - 5:49pm

The huge error in wanting to devise a compelling reason for businesses (pronounced "enterprise") to move to Windows 8 is that it clearly didn't work with Windows XP. There are SO many businesses...

Sunday, February 9, 2014 - 5:40pm

I'm sorry, but it's people like you that ruin this for everyone else. Windows 8 ISN'T growing as fast as Windows 7 did, but it IS, in fact, growing. I'm sure we can play various statistical...

Sunday, February 9, 2014 - 2:42am

Is there a way to DISABLE the metro task bar and the all the other desktop features showing up on the Start screen? I don't want that garbage ruining what is currently a much better user...

Sunday, February 9, 2014 - 2:40am

No, USERS need to come to their senses. This is NOT an improvement. This is going BACKWARDS. I have dual 24" screens and I absolutely LOVE the keyboard & mouse use. I don't get how...

Saturday, February 8, 2014 - 7:46pm

I don't want to see them WITH a mouse. I am extremely happy with how Metro works NOW with a keyboard, mouse and a touchpad.

Friday, February 7, 2014 - 6:48pm

I am so incredibly angry about this update! I surely hope there is away to disable all of the destop-on-metro crap. I want to avoid the desktop if at all possible. PLEASE tell me there is a way...

Friday, February 7, 2014 - 10:55am

I'm sorry, but I disagree with the beginning premise of the post. I have absolutely no issues with the mouse & keyboard use on Windows 8.1. None. I'm so comfortable, in fact, that moving to...

Why does she find it difficult? Either with the Photo app or SkyDrive app, select the photos you want, cut, paste into target folder. Essentially the same way you do it in File Explorer.

Monday, February 3, 2014 - 6:28pm

I'll call them Metro apps until I die. Germany can bite me. As for OneDrive, I'm betting they won't get to stay to comfortable with that one, either, given the hooplah already starting on it...

Monday, February 3, 2014 - 6:24pm

Let's see, so they've muddied up the Start screen with remnants from the Desktop. Lovely, just lovely. And I refuse to have ANYTHING pinned or otherwise occupying the Desktop---legacy OR Metro...

Monday, January 27, 2014 - 10:22am

Wow. That's just plain horrible. I'm a mouse/keyboard user, and I've not had a single issue with how the Metro side works. In fact, I'm so use to it that when I DO pick up a Win8 tablet it...

Thursday, January 23, 2014 - 10:09am

Then I feel sad for you. I started with MS-DOS, and I've never felt any change "jarring". I went with Windows 8 from the first available preview and, again, never felt it was jarring. I just...

Thursday, January 23, 2014 - 10:08am

That's probably because those people don't have Windows Phones and weren't part of the cadre the whined about it not having a X for apps. Again, so many people stuck in the past, unable to grasp...

Thursday, January 23, 2014 - 10:03am

Sheesh, you people and your crutch-like dependency on the desktop.
