Are Libraries Going Away in Windows 8.1? Commented on: 1 year ago (June 10, 2013)

It is true that if you install the preview, you will have to reinstall 8.1 fresh. If you only upgrade to 8.1 when released, it will work fine. The process for a fresh install is pretty easy and...

Windows 8.1 Preview … Visually Commented on: 1 year ago (June 5, 2013)

The problem is with the app itself not Windows 8. I can have apps snapped or hidden and they keep playing sound even when opening the Start Screen.

Fixing Windows 8: What Semantic Zoom Should Look Like in Windows Store Commented on: 1 year ago (April 9, 2013)

I agree that semantic zoom is implemented poorly in Windows Store (though there are many other apps, not just from MS that fail to make it a useful feature).
I'm not crazy about the wrapped...

Windows 8/RT App Update: Xbox Music Commented on: 2 years ago (March 26, 2013)

I had the same issue before the update. Initially after the update it failed to show any music. I closed the app and reopened it and it proceeded to update my library. Finally seems to be working...

Fixing Windows 8: Advice for Users and for Microsoft Commented on: 2 years ago (March 13, 2013)

I think hit upon the main problem with RT is that there is still a desktop environment (even if you can't use it really). If RT were truly to be a tablet like an ipad, it wouldn't have dipped a...

Windows 8 Tip: Run Metro Apps in Windows on the Desktop Commented on: 2 years ago (March 11, 2013)

Yes Decor8 is another great add-on. I wasn't too sure about ModernMix but I'm really enjoying it as I've using Windows 8 for nearly a year now and have found myself moving more and more towards...

It’s Time to Bring Back NT Commented on: 2 years ago (March 11, 2013)

I'm more for the direction Microsoft is heading, I don't think we need to go back to the past. I just agree with you that they are doing it wrong.
I disagree on the Start Menu coming back...

Feeling Blue: Microsoft, You’re Releasing it Wrong Commented on: 2 years ago (February 25, 2013)

Fine words but a pity Microsoft will ignore them even if they read them. Many apps I have get updated constantly and often one developer. There is no reason MS can't update their own apps at least...

Microsoft Tech Migrations Good, Bad and Ugly Commented on: 2 years ago (February 22, 2013)

The XBox Music one bothers me more since Id on't use IM and a shame that MS does not seem quick to try to right their wrong (or they are unaware, which I would doubt).
But XP will...

Microsoft Announces Five More Microsoft Stores for 2013 Commented on: 2 years ago (February 5, 2013)

I grew up down the street in Walpole Ma and sure Dedham would have been great, but Natick isn't that far away. I live in Ohio now, been meaning to check out the one in Beechwood, just haven't got...
