Blue Commented on: 4 years 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...

Microsoft Surface with Windows 8 Pro Review Commented on: 4 years ago (February 6, 2013)

The problem with a 1080p resolution is that you have to scale up the DPI to 150%. That means the new resolution of the device is 1280 x 720, which falls short of the 1366 x 768 minimum resolution...

Next Up for Google Chrome: Speech Recognition Commented on: 4 years ago (January 15, 2013)

And where is the spec for this "Web Speech API"? I don't see it at the W3C or WHATWG's Web sites.

Sigh. It looks like we've got a new proprietary API for WebKit.

Microsoft to Kill Messenger on March 15 Commented on: 4 years ago (January 9, 2013)

IE dispiritedly needs a downloads manager.

Fixing Windows 8, Part 2: Boot to the Desktop Commented on: 4 years ago (December 21, 2012)

To be honest, I've been fine booting to the start screen, despite being a "power user". I don't pin apps to the start screen, and I try to use Windows Store apps when I can. The desktop apps I use...

Dialing Back the Crazy on Windows 8 Commented on: 4 years ago (November 26, 2012)

When I ordered a Dell XPS 12 a bit after the Windows 8 launch on Halloweem, I was told it would arrive a couple of days ago. Now it's apparently going to be delivered in December. So I've...

Review: Lenovo IdeaPad YOGA 13 Commented on: 4 years ago (November 21, 2012)

Good review. I was seriously considering the Yoga until I found out that the SSD space was so ridiculously small after all the partitions that Lenovo seem to add. I've gone for the Dell XPS 12...

Why is Nokia HERE for iPhone Better than Windows Phone Maps? Commented on: 4 years ago (November 20, 2012)

Microsoft would have solved so many problems if Windows Phone 8's built-in apps were just separate bundled apps like in Windows 8. They could be updated separately and we'd be able to get...
