I disagree wholeheartedly. The *only* advantage to making a tablet running Windows Phone is the apps.

With the apps comes a huge problem. Who wants to deal with a one-handed ultrasimplistic...

FYI, sources are saying that the HTC is 800x480, the Samsung is 720p.

Monday, June 17, 2013 - 2:28pm

Understood. Thank you.

Right, my choice of words was confusing. I was under the impression that the update would come at the time of the Windows 8.1 update. Paul seems to indicate here that it could be available much,...

Monday, June 17, 2013 - 1:15pm

That makes sense to me as well.

I'm more concerned about the timing of the update. Re-reading the blog post from Microsoft now, they didn't really indicate that the update would come out...

Right, obviously everyone will be getting the Windows 8.1 update.

Microsoft's press release introducing 8.1 officially, they mention the update to the Music app.

Source:...

Are you under the impression that this update will come through the Windows Store?

Microsoft seemed to imply that the new Music app would be a part of Windows 8.1.

I was referring to the fact that neither Google, Verizon or Microsoft "record" audio or video from these devices.

I believe I referred to Google Now in a negative light, so yes, I do...

Simple answer, If the Xbox One doesn't check you license occasionally or only checked when you first installed the game, you could immediately hand the game to a friend and they'd have a free game...

If you have cell phone reception, you can connect your XB1 to a cell phone hotspot for verification.

But..... if the game is powered by the cloud.... you're outa luck. I don't suppose...

You can't "share" a game at all right now. Microsoft says that you can give the game to one friend who has been on your friends list for at least 30 days. When you "give" the game to this person,...

I agree with you on the pricing issue. Xbox Live downloadable titles are extremely expensive. Sometimes they cost more than buying it new.

That being said, Microsoft has little choice in...

Friday, June 7, 2013 - 4:26pm

I'd imagine that some of this might be processed in the cloud, yes. But to your point, Google and Apple already do this. As far as I know, Siri hasn't spelled doom and gloom for Apple because of "...

Friday, June 7, 2013 - 4:23pm

I believe you are incorrect. I have an Xbox 360 and don't have an "Outlook" or "Live" account. I use my Gmail account. It's not currently a requirement that you have an email address registered...

Thank you for being one of the handful of journalists that actually think before they type.

As I've mentioned on WinRTSource and you mentioned here, many of us readily give our entire life...

Friday, May 24, 2013 - 2:22pm

Ha-ha. Thanks. I missed that one. Obviously, I agree with your thoughts therein.

Also, I believe Office is an important factor in their gaining credibility as a tablet maker as underscored by their latest iPad vs. Asus tablet ads.

Although, as you know, Microsoft had...

Friday, May 24, 2013 - 1:44pm

This is extremely exciting and crucial. Microsoft has to be established as a tablet maker by 2015 when tablets are expected to outsell traditional form factor PCs.

Thursday, May 23, 2013 - 6:26pm

Haha. I love the direct way that you answer these guys.

Thursday, May 23, 2013 - 6:20pm

That's untrue. The Dell XPS 10 can be purchased with LTE.

Wednesday, May 22, 2013 - 6:16pm

This was well played by Microsoft.
