Windows 8.1 Update 1 Review Commented on: 1 week ago (April 11, 2014)

Anyone else notice this bit of hilarity? The Windows 8 Skydrive app hadn't been renamed to OneDrive. With this update it has but it's still in it's place in the "S" section even though it's name...

Microsoft Announces Xbox Video, SmartGlass Improvements Commented on: 3 weeks ago (April 1, 2014)

I used to buy most of my videos on Xbox Video. Then when I got the Xbox One I noticed several of my movies were missing. For example, Star Trek (2009) bought in 2010. Still available for sale on...

What the Tech 204: Titanfall Disease Commented on: 6 weeks ago (March 13, 2014)

Microsoft PLAY: Xbox Games on Windows 8 Commented on: 1 year ago (January 17, 2013)
