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...

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

It runs slower by a degree that is only detectable if you run benchmarks. 1-3 FPS in games, milliseconds in apps. Performance is NOT a valid reason to stay away from Win8; there are reasons, yes,...

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,...

As an IT pro whose employer isn't willing to front the money for personal development, I relied heavily on...

Xbox One Preview: A Look at the Reveal Games Commented on: 1 year ago (May 23, 2013)

The blogosphere is having a field day blowing this misinformation out of proportion too, which is not surprising - if there is a universal past time for tech bloggers, it's bashing whatever...

Windows 8 Calendar App and the Great Google Flip-Flop Commented on: 1 year ago (March 27, 2013)

My response to this and the other recent Google announcements was pretty drastic - I pulled the plug on Google..

I went to eBay, bought a like-new Nokia 920 for $275 (a total steal) and...
