Surface Power Cover Preview Commented on: 36 weeks ago (March 11, 2014)

Add in the fact that refurb Gen1 Surface Pros are going for as little as $500, and you actually find yourself in a position for a real bargain. The original Pro had only a few real weaknesses vs...

Tami Reller Talks: Windows 8 at 16 Months Commented on: 39 weeks ago (February 19, 2014)

Intel is not quite there with ARM yet, but will be soon. The Bay Trail family CPUs compete evenly with the best ARM chips in the areas of battery life and processing power, but they are still...

Moto G: Close, But Not Quite Commented on: 43 weeks ago (January 24, 2014)

Agreed on both points. We switched to T-Moble after they announced their latest payoff plan, and when we went in they had TWO Windows choices, the 925 and the 721. My wife wanted a Windows Phone,...

Surface Pro 2.1? Commented on: 46 weeks ago (January 3, 2014)

Turbo mode on the Core series CPUs means that when appropriate the CPU can clock higher than its normal operating speeds. Sometimes they even powering down some of the cores in the chip in order...

Xbox One Play & Charge Kit Commented on: 46 weeks ago (January 2, 2014)

Still waiting on PC compatibility. I'm not going to buy an XBOne until there is a strong game library for it, but the controller will be replacing my aging 360 one for PC games as soon as they get...

Windows 8.1 + Miracast Commented on: 1 year ago (November 14, 2013)

Let's be a little bit fair here - if you want to use this projection feature on a regular basis from your couch to your TV (say, you want to plug a gaming laptop into it), and don't want the cable...

The one big problem is the missing Google apps, especially YouTube. I know about and love MetroTube, and know that the browser works fine for it, but it's a stigma that is hard to get past, and...

Dell Venue 8 Pro Review Commented on: 1 year ago (November 11, 2013)

I am really very curious about the Atom-based Venue 11 Pro. The combination of a 1080p screen, the good-enough-for-most-uses Atom Z3000, a ~$500 price point, and 8-10 hours of battery life (12-15...
