iOS for the Windows Guy: Turn Down the Glare Commented on: 5 hours ago (September 2, 2014)

Very true... Almost a year ago there were a lot of blog postings about these settings, so I tried them. I wound up changing them back, iOS7 is quite readable as-is, at least for me.

HTC One M8 for Windows Preview Commented on: 2 weeks ago (August 19, 2014)

A shame they didn't swap the camera out with the same one being used in the similar and also just announced HTC Butterfly. The 4 megapixel version is fine for 4x6 printouts or social media...

HTC Will Give Windows Phone Fans What They've Always Wanted Commented on: 4 weeks ago (August 4, 2014)

Have long thought that HTC could turn themselves around by concentrating on WindowsPhone. Android has been overdone, handsets get lost in a sea of mediocrity. WindowsPhone is still emerging, and...

Cortana vs. Siri: Happy Anniversary Commented on: 5 weeks ago (July 28, 2014)

There’s some stuff about Cortana that’s not good. I don’t like how it attaches my voice recording to notes and reminders — I don’t want that, I just want the text. Oddly enough, with or without...

Microsoft Surface Firmware Updates for July 2014 Commented on: 7 weeks ago (July 9, 2014)

As a SP2 owner, I keep hoping they'll come out with a firmware update for the combo WiFi/Bluetooth chip. Currently, if you have both Bluetooth & WiFi turned on, WiFi connectivity speed is...

Microsoft + Wearables Commented on: 8 weeks ago (July 2, 2014)

Sleeping with the Enemy: Google + Microsoft Office Commented on: 9 weeks ago (June 29, 2014)

Microsoft's free web-based versions of Office blow Google's stuff out-of-the-water. Combined with the desktop versions, there really is no competition. People who use Google's for the most part...

Microsoft Surface Firmware Updates for June 2014 Commented on: 12 weeks ago (June 10, 2014)

Is there a link to where the updates can be downloaded manually? I have a SP2 and they're not showing up in Windows Update -- a lot of other standard Windows updates did show up, just nothing...

Compete Report: Mac OS X Yosemite and iOS 8 Commented on: 12 weeks ago (June 9, 2014)

"...Apple has finally adopted the integration strategy that makes Microsoft's products and services so interesting..."

Really? I have a WindowsPhone 8.1 device and Surface Pro 2 for work...

Surface Pro 3: On the Road Commented on: 13 weeks ago (June 2, 2014)

It's too bad they've discontinued the Wireless Keyboard Adapter. I've found it so useful for air travel that when I discovered it was being discontinued, I purchased a 2nd one. Adds quite a bit...
