Cortana vs. Siri: Happy Anniversary Commented on: 3 days 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: 3 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: 4 weeks ago (July 2, 2014)

Wouldn't surprise me if Micrsoft initially relased it with iOS functionality first, with Windows/Windows Phone 8.x 'coming soon'; like they've done with the touch version of Office :-(

Sleeping with the Enemy: Google + Microsoft Office Commented on: 4 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: 7 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...

"...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: 8 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...

Surface Pro 3: Hardware Expansion Commented on: 9 weeks ago (May 22, 2014)

To be even more fair, there isn't a bluetooth trackball mouse on the market -- only USB, believe me I've checked ;-) I use a trackball mouse, and always will:...

Microsoft Updates OneNote for iPhone and Mac Commented on: 13 weeks ago (May 1, 2014)

Pretty now, but Evernote still wins for group use -- though OneNote is closing in. Unfortunately, this version won't open embedded PDF files -- a rather huge oversight that this wasn't...

Surface Power Cover First Impressions and Photos Commented on: 18 weeks ago (March 21, 2014)

vhaakmat said, "...Why can't these guys get it 100% right the 2nd time?"

Because it usually takes them 3 tries, then a new product cycle starts and it takes 3 more -- I'm seeing IBM deja vu...
