Spotify Brings Free Music to Mobile Devices Commented on: 39 weeks ago (December 11, 2013)

Yep, another example of a WP app that was rushed through development and has received no updates. That lovely death spiral of "we didn't update because nobody is using it" begets "we don't use it...

Gamer Changers? Commented on: 43 weeks ago (November 15, 2013)

I think devices like the Steam Box and nVidia Shield (but not THE nVidia Shield, most likely) will define things going forward. As you said, cloud based computing, whether it be from a system in...

Windows 8.1 + Miracast Commented on: 43 weeks 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...

Good News and Bad News for Windows Phone Commented on: 43 weeks ago (November 14, 2013)

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: 44 weeks 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...

Google Nexus 5: First Impressions and Photos Commented on: 44 weeks ago (November 6, 2013)

Paul, the OK Google voice commands only work from the unlocked home screen on the N5, right? Not from the locked state like the Moto X?

Post-PC: HP Declares War on Microsoft Commented on: 48 weeks ago (October 10, 2013)

Good luck, HP. You've always been a "me too" company, building whatever everyone else is building with lower quality and lower cost to get those entry level sales. Now in the diffuse market of the...

Windows Phone 8.1 Rumors Emerge Commented on: 48 weeks ago (October 9, 2013)

The delay on the update has only reinforced one thing with me: the subsidies for buying a carrier-controlled phone are not worth the games they play with software updates. Next time my phone is up...

Fall 2013 Windows Tablet Preview Commented on: 1 year ago (September 13, 2013)

Yes, Haswell systems still need fans. Even the lowest voltage versions still have an 11.5 watt TDP, which is too much for a thin form factor without active cooling.To put it in perspective, last...

Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012 R2 Now Available on MSDN, TechNet Commented on: 1 year ago (September 9, 2013)

As with anything from MSDN/TechNet, if you don't want to lose data, don't risk the update - wait until next month, and even then make a good backup. As far as I am concerned, if it's a major...
