Motley Fool is a pretty influential soapbox on the investing advice, simply because they have someone to write about everything.
They've been beating the Apple drum since shares of that...

I agree quite a lot with you. There are a few issues that come into play, but notably they are vocabulary - the words that trigger certain activities, discoverability - how easy and intuitive it...

That would be true, if the company producing the substandard app on a single platform weren't the de facto source of the content being delivered through said app.

Amazon's neglect of...

"no end in sight" is absolutely right. Amazon will probably never provide anything more than they currently do for Windows 8.x in terms of the Modern experience.
Windows Phone won't get any...

I was able to find it in the Store on-device and diagnosed it, but I also typically have trouble getting these from a web browser.

The store page tells me that it is not supported on my device, Lumia 920 8.1

Anyone else share the same experience?

Tuesday, June 3, 2014 - 2:51pm

I'm wondering if anyone else had the experience of their update being interrupted by a fully discharged battery. My wife and I both started the update this morning after a full night recharge on...

You say, "innovate as well as Cook's company". I have to categorically disagree with you here. Apple took some old ideas, updated them years ago, and has been riding the same premium-pricing on...

The Kinect voice sensors are a lot more complicated than a simple microphone, incorporating lots of noise-compensating technologies and multi-directional detection. A separate microphone is just...

These are some substantial changes to the way that we interface with the OS.
Are there plans to make the new interfaces (floating windows, start menu) able to be toggled either by hardware/...

Typo in paragraph 5 has it that Windows 9 was to be released April 2014, should be April 2015

I don't know where's the best place to mention this, but I just encountered an unxexpected behavior with the Action Center and general notifications.

If you turn off an item...

It seems the way the browser handles video has changed a good bit, too. Rather than handing off playback to the built-in video player, it actually just plays it on the page now.

Do you know if the version of IE11 coming in WP8.1 is the same as that packed into WindowsRT, or is it the one on Xbox One?

Wednesday, April 2, 2014 - 2:25pm

Typo at the end of the first paragraph: while is true that Microsoft was "writing the wrongs of Windows 8" two-plus years ago, now they're trying to "right" the wrongs.

I know you say you...

Considering the success the "it has full Office" marketing campaign has had, this release isn't going to impact Windows tablet sales in the slightest.

If your core product's only draw is...

The problem isn't limited to browser makers, though it's pretty acute for them. Mobile apps suck - flat out, no bones about it. The only way around that is to be in a first- or second-party...

Wednesday, March 5, 2014 - 1:38pm

Please don't forget that by including this stuff on traditional, desktop PCs - where it seems sort of strange and offputting - Windows users don't have to learn multiple, disparate interfaces....

Best Buy had to lay off the controllers as a cost-cutting measure.

I figure the lagging of the X1 has nothing to do directly with consumers, but everything to do with marketing. The marketing failure of the X1 didn't just start at E3 when the PS4 got announced...

The intelligent move on their part isn't to make the OS so that you can ignore entire swaths of it, but so that you can interact naturally and easily with all the parts of it.

The title bar...

Paragraph 1 typo: "Recycle Bing" should be "Recycle Bin". Or is that a scoop on Nadella's first year?

You know Windows Defender comes built in to Windows 8?

If all someone needs a computer for is web browsing and email, then why do they need to pay $300 for a Chromebook when they could get...

My understanding is that it is activated by the front-facing camera, so the device would have to have one of those to work in the first place.

Further, because only select pixels are being...

Let's talk about all that for a second:
Windows 7
Windows 7 SP1
7 - SP1: 21 months
Windows update.

You have to give them a chance to figure it out, this is new...

I think this is one of those cases where the desires of developers and marketers overwhelms user experience.
The iPhone and Android offered a lot of opportunity to developers to build and...

I don't know that they needed to put it on sale: it's completely sold out.

It doesn't seem that users are able to purchase season passes for TV shows, but individual episodes are available and the SD/HD toggle is pretty obvious.

The need for expandable storage on high-end Windows Phones just became very real.
