Too bad it is only in stores. I would be very interested in this since my Gold subscription expires this month, my one year of Skype World that came with my Surface 2 goes out on December 31, and...

Sad the Icon doesn't even show up as a separate device. It was supposed to be the flagship Lumia device, yet the older 920 and 925 still command 9.4% of usage. Verizon and Microsoft really...

I will admit the value is better now than it was last year, but I certainly don't feel ripped off. I would have gotten the Kinect version anyway for Skype in the living room. Basically I would...

The first Microsoft phone will point to what direction they want to go. A Surface like phone with top end specs and terrific engineering (think VaporMG casing) will show they are serious about...

Debating on whether to get this one on release day or not. The World of Warcraft expansion is out on November 13 and GTA V hits on November 18.

I've never played a Halo game before so I...

Personally I'm still satisfied with my iPad 3. It has the same resolution as the newest iPad and runs iOS 8 just fine. There may be a few things it can't do, but it suits my needs as a...

The iPhone 6 plus practically begs for large active tiles. It could easily hold 40 icons, but as it is it still has 28 with a lot of wasted space. That's just too much. Allowing the top half to be...

Apple has got to do something about the huge bezels on the iPhone. They are giving up almost a half inch in screen size when compared to a similar length Galaxy or Lumia.

IMHO, Apple...

I get the impression this is only counting usage from the Metro apps. I generally use the desktop version of Internet Explorer on my Surface Pro 2 and suspect most other people do the same. If...

I'm going to give the Voyage a try. I've got a Kindle Touch 3G purchased in 2011 along with the case that has the flip-out LED light for reading at night. Seems like a good time to upgrade. I...

I don't know about the when, but the how much had better be zero on a two-year contract. It is going to sell unsubsidized for around $400 which would be less than the subsidized contract premium...

Well, I guess I'll preorder the iPhone 6 next week. I'm on AT&T and am extremely disappointed that an Icon equivalent is not available or even announced yet.

Microsoft may or may not...

The problem I see is that Microsoft keeps having exclusives with carriers. I'm on AT&T and if I want a flagship phone my choices are the 1520 (too big) or the 1020 (now over a year old). The...

How much more usable space is on the screen vs. the 520? It almost looks like the entire 1/2 inch larger size is dedicated to the software buttons. The actual content area displayed on the two...

Hey Paul, re: the fan kicking in differently. The advanced power settings have options for "On battery" and "Plugged in". The default for on battery is passive which has the system throttle the...

The touch-first Office apps are a must-have for this device. With so much fanfare given to the iPad Office apps last month it would be suicide for Microsoft to release the Surface Mini without...

Wednesday, April 16, 2014 - 13:43

I don't see them releasing an offline version of the web apps. The iPad (and very likely Android) office application requires an Office 365 subscription to activate editing features. Making an...

The space saving benefits will only apply to new devices on which 8.1 Update 1 is preinstalled. If you are updating from either 8.0 or 8.1 you won't see any decrease in the OS footprint.

Friday, March 28, 2014 - 11:43

I think Microsoft has done a very good job with this release. While I won't be using the iPad version for my main productive work, having it on hand at all times will allow me to do a lot more...

Maybe not the place to ask, but do you have any idea why the TWiT live feeds won't play on the Xbox One but will work fine on Metro IE on my Windows 8.1 computers? I thought they were the same...

Friday, December 20, 2013 - 11:08

Paul. Maybe I misheard you regarding the native Twitter client and refreshing the new messages. I check Twitter every couple of days and if I hit the button that looks like a house it takes me...

I installed the update as soon as it came out hoping they had fixed the Bluetooth issues with the Wedge mouse. No change with that problem, but I noticed the Surface would not go into sleep mode...

I don't think very many books from the major publishers are available. I've bought quite a few books from Amazon over the years but only three are showing up on MatchBook and only one is from a...

I like the phone, but for some reason I keep thinking about the Nokia wedding advertisement that started off with one guy asking another to "please move his enormous phone" to which the other guy...

I would like to see it a little larger, but 13" may be a little much. With the current size it will fit nicely in my bag along with my folders and papers and doesn't look obtrusive in meetings....

Microsoft would do well to look closely at the other Windows tablets when deciding on Surface pricing. Both Dell and Asus have very nice looking 10" tablets running full Windows for $400 or less...

Friday, September 20, 2013 - 14:44

Sounds like a good plan to me. Metro Office apps that are done right will allow for a decent amount of content creation/editing on a 7" or larger tablet. I don't expect them to have the full...

Friday, September 20, 2013 - 09:13

I updated to iOS7 yesterday. I like the look of it, but honestly it doesn't function any differently overall. Sure you have the new control center which saves a few steps in making changes which...

Friday, September 20, 2013 - 08:44

Because the carriers are still insisting they be allowed to add their custom tweaks to the phones in an attempt to make you think they are adding value. When Apple introduced the iPhone, they...
