I've got a few VP11's with the docks and they work as you'd expect, nothing out of the ordinary. I wish they would offer a real dock for the VP8. That would be the perfect multi-use office desktop...

The platform definitely seems to be getting two things that it needed, more rapid updates and more hardware vendors.

I can't say what Siri does at this point. My experience with it is all from its earliest days, but I can say that I like what Cortana does for me. Here are some examples.

set a reminder to...

You obviously have no experience using any of the modern, low end systems with Windows 8.1. Suggesting that this is "netbook 2.0" shows a complete lack of understanding and experience with the...

This, completely. The only stat anyone can ever give is this nebulous Amazon ranking. It's an anecdotal stat that people hold up to be some sort of gold standard. Look at the volume of Chromebooks...

Devices and Services, services and devices. Microsoft could do well for itself with this IF they do it right. The segment, while certainly growing, still hasn't had any particularly great device...

I like that they're giving more away, but they need to address both missing features and the random sync issues that pop up on the desktop side. There are no shortage of people posting on their...

heck we don't really even know how well the previous versions sold. I think it will do well, but who knows. I picked one up at Best Buy today and it was the next to the last one they had in stock...

USB 2.0 on the tablet itself is a total fail.

If that's how you view things it's time to shut it down because everything is more of the same with a new wrinkle here or there.

Monday, June 9, 2014 - 19:23

missed the boat? Did you not see the attention they gave indie games and the list that they have on board now?

Tuesday, June 3, 2014 - 21:55

Sweet, so now Chrome can open up even more processes that it won't close and suck up ever more memory!!

Monday, June 2, 2014 - 17:16

It's obvious why Microsoft is doing this. They want a clean break from Windows 8 and to have Windows 9 appear to be the OS that fixes everything. Releasing it as a patch wouldn't fix the negative...

I don't own any of them, but I will now.

I find this disappointing. I wish they'd simply dropped the price on the bundle across the board and ate the difference. Now the Kinect is exactly what all the haters have said it was from day one...

The hardware specs are only half the issue with Chromebooks. I don't think anyone is really buying them because of the specs and truth be told, I'm not sure who is buying them at all. Sure they...

Still can't stream media directly to the console. Until that happens the consoles name is a lie.

Wednesday, April 16, 2014 - 22:26

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

Thursday, April 3, 2014 - 21:03

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

Thursday, April 3, 2014 - 20:11

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 - 13:37

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 - 13:30

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...

Wednesday, March 26, 2014 - 13:22

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...

Tuesday, March 18, 2014 - 14:33

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

Friday, March 7, 2014 - 15:31

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 - 14:54

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 - 23:59

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 - 14:31

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...
