Windows Media Center not Quite Dead Yet Commented on: 6 weeks ago (July 22, 2015)

I don't know if I've just been lucky or my cable provider is just well-supported by the EPG services that WMC uses (used). I haven't noticed any issue with the switchover, and I don't recall any...

Q. Can I restore my saved Windows 7 disk image to my new Windows 8 PC? Commented on: 7 weeks ago (July 16, 2015)

Planning Your Microsoft Band Charging Routine Commented on: 23 weeks ago (March 25, 2015)

I've had my Band for just 5 days. I've been charging while I get ready in the morning for about 20 minutes, and a couple times while watching TV in the evening. I could probably go 2 days...
