The update is a tiny zip pack that adds in the Google support files. That takes well less than 5 minutes on an Android device, too.

Why would they do that when they could just stream the content to it like you can with the Xbox Windows 10 app?

I'm currently an Android user, so I'm biased with that experience, but the Hamburger Menu was a MASSIVE improvement in interface, so I'm having a hard time seeing the upset. I love it.

Except there won't be a 10.1. The indication is there may not even be anything after 10. The goal here is to constantly update 10, making the version number meaningless to the user. So I think it'...

I just bought my daughter an HP Stream 7 because it was $80, which was hard to argue with. I was VERY impressed with it, overall, both in performance and utility. But even so, it was VERY hard to...

What part of this news implies it's no longer optional? It was integrated in 8.x, and was optional, so finding out it will be integrated in 10 doesn't tell us anything about whether it still will...

No, they announced Windows RT would receive an update to give it some features from Windows 10 in an attempt to close the gap a little bit. But Windows 10 itself won't be released for RT.

And yet I find computers from my clients on a regular basis that, indeed, do not have SP1.

There's zero chance of them doing the same with music. Besides the fact that the expected standard for music is to be able to play it offline, all of their music is sold in DRM-free MP3s. That...

I'm a touch typist, and I rarely need to look at my keyboard. But did you notice one of the words I used there? "Rarely." Rarely isn't never. Particularly if I work 90% from a desktop keyboard and...

You're confused. It's doing all of that via IR Blaster. The only way it could do that without an IR Blaster is via HDMI-CEC, which the Xbox One lacks. You're simply not aware it's IR Blasting...

No, "dude," that feature came with 8.1, not 8.

If the prior rumors were true that Microsoft is pushing their OEM partners to dual-boot Windows Phone with Android (I'm unconvinced, but I'll play), this is a necessity. It also simplifies some of...

Too little, too late.

I owned (well, still do) a Zune 80, and I loved my Zune Pass dearly. I canceled it during some financial hard times, and slowly gravitated to relying on music services...

Just like with Office 365, it doesn't support tablets. Any tablets. Also, apparently, 1080p-resolution phones such as the HTC One and Galaxy S4.

The RT has HDMI-out and USB 2.0. By technical limitation, it can't support this docking station's DisplayPort and USB 3.0 needs.

I could be wrong, but I believe the 8.1 preview has to be installed from 8. I don't believe you can install it straight.

The option implies that, if the option is NOT checked, that it therefore hast DIFFERENT scaling levels for each display. Otherwise there would be no option and things would operate as they do now...

And your better, more innovative idea is...?

I got to play with it at the Microsoft Store. I really liked it.

And the previous controller had rechargeable batteries in exactly the same way. So that's not really new.

There's one on the left side.

Your view is pretty warped. SNES didn't work with NES controllers. Genesis didn't work with MegaDrive controllers. N64 didn't work with SNES controllers. Saturn didn't work with Genesis...

Removing Kinect as a mandatory component is NOT acceptable.

Historically, optional components are never well-supported. That includes the original Kinect and all of Sony's camera add-ons,...

I was wondering why you hadn't tried this before. The reason for the increased fan noise is that you're not, in fact, using the Intel 4000 video processor to do the video processing when you use...

A loot of people are asking why the $15 fee and why the upgrade to Pro. My assumption is there's a tidbit not being mentioned: the upgrade and $15 includes the Pro Pack that adds back in the...
