Good News and Bad News for Windows Phone Commented on: 1 year 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: 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...

Google Nexus 5: First Impressions and Photos Commented on: 1 year 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: 1 year ago (October 10, 2013)

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

Windows 8.1 Review Commented on: 1 year ago (September 9, 2013)

Windows Phone Device Stats: August 2013 Commented on: 1 year ago (August 19, 2013)

The Lumia 520 is a 512MB device, so the split is going to continue to widen as it captures more and more of the market. On the bright side, a lot of popular app makers (and Nokia themselves)...

Microsoft Wins the High Ground in War with Google Commented on: 1 year ago (August 17, 2013)

Thanks for shutting that one down. It's 100% clear that Google is singling out MS for this and trying to stop 1st party app development - the former (and now once again) #1 YouTube app on WP,...
