In Blue: Bing Integration is the Marquee New Feature Commented on: 1 year ago (June 1, 2013)

I have a bad feeling that some of this is going to be US only.

Microsoft Provides a “First Look” at Windows 8.1 Commented on: 1 year ago (May 30, 2013)

Since this is going to appear more as an update than a full new OS version release sold at retail, how do you think the preview release at Build will work? Do you think anyone will be able to...

(Re)Start Me Up: The Great Windows 8 Debate Commented on: 1 year ago (May 9, 2013)

I'm curious whether usability studies show that adding the start menu back improves familiarity. What about when the mouse user is browsing on a metro-style app. There won't be any start button....

In Blue: Multi-PC App Uninstall Commented on: 1 year ago (April 24, 2013)

That's an interesting thought, where you say it's surprising the checkbox isn't ticked by default. With Microsoft's faster release cycle, how much time will they have for usability studies?

What I’ve Learned from Using “Blue”: All Apps Commented on: 1 year ago (April 4, 2013)

Switch to WebKit? Don't you know disastrous that would be?

Windows Phone 8 App Pick: Twitter 2.0 Commented on: 1 year ago (February 26, 2013)

We've finally got an awesome Twitter app on Windows Phone. And hopefully this is a sign that they've submitted the Windows 8 app for approval in the Windows Store as well!

Blue Commented on: 1 year ago (February 17, 2013)

Sounds like Blue is exactly what I was expecting it to be. But I would hope that they'll still be making feature-releases for the built-in Microsoft apps. Windows 8 is the only OS where the apps...
