It pleases me to see Microsoft finally start to integrate some of their consumer facing products!

I don't see why it wouldn't be. QuickBooks isn't much more than a big spreadsheet.

It has to be more limited. I'm not sure how anyone could expect otherwise. It's an entirely different UX. You can't just allow an app to be insta-published to xbox one without significantly more...

Paul,
I've had the VP11 with all three accessories (slim, mobile and desktop dock) for some time now and it, along with the VP8, are my go-to devices. I rarely even touch my Surface pro/2...

Wednesday, March 26, 2014 - 1:37pm

IMO the Dell Venue and accessories is the first to hit the mark. The Dell desktop dock for the Latitude/Venue 11's works perfectly well, IMO, and has every port you could want on a modern system...

Wednesday, March 26, 2014 - 1:30pm

I won't argue that early on both the VP11 and 8 were far from perfect, but I have to commend Dell on the speed at which they have evolved the firmware and drivers for both. I've had several of...

Dell now offers a little keyboard for the VP8. It's not quite a elegant or functionally portable as the VP11 options, but it works. IT's basically a folio case with magnets in both the cover and...

Paul, As stated here many times. I'm a Microsoft guy. I've sold, implemented and supported their software for two decades. I love their stuff when it works, but I have to be honest when it doesn't...

Still no local media playback of any kind. Still no networked media short of the horribly unreliable Play To. Sigh....

Much like the evolution of 10-11" windows tablets, the 8" models still aren't there. We need: 1080p + Wacom tech + HDMI out & MicroSD. Who will be the first to get it right?

Tuesday, March 4, 2014 - 2:54pm

Paul, I love ya like a fat kid loves cake, but c'mon, we know exactly why the PS4 is doing better. THEY ARE TRYING HARDER THAN MICROSOFT...

Let's put aside the obvious advantages they have...

Friday, February 28, 2014 - 11:59pm

I've been saying for years that Microsoft needs to take Windows to a free or low cost model for personal/home use. Now that they are a devices and services company with services that are actually...

Wednesday, February 26, 2014 - 2:31pm

The worst part about it is that after it came out that the PS4 wouldn't support DLNA, they came out and said the Xbox One would, but only later did we learn that it wouldn't ship with that...

Tuesday, February 25, 2014 - 5:32pm

Paul, any word if we're ever going to get the ability to play local media or stream media from our home computers without having to use PlayTo? PlayTo BLOOOOWS.
So disappointed in this...

Tuesday, February 11, 2014 - 11:27pm

I still don't get their methodology for some of these things. Why not swipe down to kill an app, just like in Windows 8? Then you have swipe left for your apps list, swipe right for notifications/...

Monday, February 10, 2014 - 4:51pm

I've been using one of these (bay trail version) since they were released and it has become my favorite tablet. I like it better than my Surface Pro 2. I have both the hard dock and the slim...

Monday, February 10, 2014 - 11:08am

c'mon paul, you can't praise Microsoft for taking chances and being the "do anything" OS and then somehow turn around and condemn them for doing what they should have done all along. Windows has...

Saturday, February 8, 2014 - 12:30am

I think this stuff is perfect and exactly what the OS needed. Just the right tweaks for each usage method and the intelligence to know which one you're actually using. The task bar at bottom when...

Wednesday, February 5, 2014 - 6:12pm

The inability to play media from a local source or to stream if from your home network is almost rage inducing. How can they honestly think to call it "Xbox One" and sell it as some sort of all in...

Saturday, January 11, 2014 - 10:42am

While I'm sure these executives don't like it, they shouldn't feel too bad about it. It's time to accept that the market has changed and not make more of these numbers than is needed. They should...

Thursday, January 9, 2014 - 1:09pm

Internet Time, Paul. Microsoft needs to get on Internet Time with Xbox, Windows and Windows phone or they're going to get taken to the cleaners over the next few years.

Wednesday, January 8, 2014 - 5:14pm

Sad isn't it? The worlds largest software company struggles to keep up because it's also the worlds slowest software company.

Tuesday, December 10, 2013 - 3:03pm

Did they get support for two external monitors with the dock yet?

Wednesday, December 4, 2013 - 4:27pm

Thanks for mention the charging cable debacle. That has driven me crazy. I hope they fix it!

Wednesday, December 4, 2013 - 12:51pm

Any word on stylus support? Synaptics seems to be progressing the quality of their offering on the Dell with driver updates, but the pens they use are atrocious. If this one had a better stylus...

Tuesday, December 3, 2013 - 12:44pm

I can agree that it's superior, but I don't know that I would call it vastly superior. It certainly has the potential to be vastly superior, but right now it's just a rushed system with LOTS of...

Re: workout equipment

C'mon Paul, Xbox Fitness! At least give us a review!! :)

Tuesday, December 3, 2013 - 8:26am

No local playback is another dropped ball for the biggest software company on the planet. You could find free code on the web and a competent developer could work that into a player in a matter of...

Monday, December 2, 2013 - 8:41am

Microsoft's marketing is absurdly bad. Xbox fitness alone could move a million units and the fact that it's free for a year would only accelerate that, but who would know if you didn't visit game/...

Sunday, December 1, 2013 - 10:29pm

skydrive just highlights the overall issue with the Xbox one, that there's just not much to it at this point. Pretty much everything is thin from a feature standpoint. Though to be honest that's...
