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...

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 - 12:43pm

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...

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 - 3:44pm

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...

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 - 9:44am

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...

Wednesday, September 18, 2013 - 7:45pm

I love my 520. It is a really wonderful device for $100. Windows Phone has certainly come a long way in the last year.

It does lack a few apps that I love on the iPhone though. Buy me a...

Thursday, September 12, 2013 - 5:13pm

iWork won't be a threat to Office unless they release a version that runs on Windows PC's. Most paid Office customers are in business or enterprise. The Mac installed base within that...

Thursday, September 12, 2013 - 10:53am

Definitely getting either a Surface 2 or the Sony Vaio TAP 11. I want the full processing power of Haswell.

I might also get the Dell Venue to replace my Nexus 7 for bedtime & travel...

Monday, September 9, 2013 - 2:29pm

I can't imagine they won't announce the Mini if they expect to have it out in time for the holidays. It wouldn't make a lot of sense to have a separate announcement a month or so later just for...

Wednesday, September 4, 2013 - 10:16am

I hope this releases in October at the same time at Windows 8.1. I wanted a Surface Pro as soon as I heard about it, but the almost six-month delay between announcement and release, the...

Tuesday, September 3, 2013 - 3:21pm

I don't think you will see a major change in hardware for at least a year, if not more. The deal isn't set to close for another six months, and the designs for the Surface 2 and the Nokia tablet...

Friday, August 30, 2013 - 1:15pm

My 520 go-phone that came with the Amber update and GDR2 does support the double tap to wake. Under Settings-Touch/Display-Touch there is a check box for it and it appears to be working fine.

Tuesday, August 20, 2013 - 7:23pm

I picked one up last week to give Windows Phone a try. My wife's iPhone is coming out from under contract next month and it will be time to upgrade. She hates change, but for $99 it is worth it...

Sunday, July 21, 2013 - 10:33pm

Thanks for the tip. Looks like it ought to be very handy for hauling the electronics collection (phone, tablet, kindle reader, and their adapters/cables) around. As an added bonus the bag is 20...

Friday, July 19, 2013 - 4:25pm

I'm hopeful that Windows 8.1, Office Gemini, and the rumored 8" Surface will make for a good combination. The Modern UI versions of Office will eliminate the need to run a faux desktop mode in RT...
