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: 1 year 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: 1 year 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: 1 year 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: 1 year 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: 1 year 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: 1 year 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: 1 year 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...

Windows 8 Tip: Shut Down Metro-Style Apps Commented on: 1 year ago (January 22, 2013)

I also use Alt+tab a lot and wish I could choose Metro or desktop somehow (different key combos). I never use the Metro only switcher on the side, too inconvenient.
More to the point of the...
