Over 1 Million People Have Downloaded the Windows Technical Preview Commented on: 2 weeks ago (October 13, 2014)

"App launches are up." Well, yea. The majority of the apps in the Start Menu that do anything are 'Universal mobile apps.' If you just load a clean install and start playing, that's what you have...

Microsoft Releases a Beta Keyboard App for Android Wear Commented on: 2 weeks ago (October 13, 2014)

Late to the party? Heck, they came early and left the party before it even got going. SPOT ;) Don't know how many times we told them to put BT in it and source it from Windows Mobile, when those...

Configure the Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter with a Windows 8 App Commented on: 3 weeks ago (October 10, 2014)

Since Miracast doesn't require the dongle to have any connection to the internet, my guess is this is how you will find out about firmware updates as well. I see it tells you what the current rev...

Nokia Lumia 530 First Impressions Commented on: 3 weeks ago (October 6, 2014)

I don't know. The iPhone 6 is the same size as the higher end Lumias, 1020, Icon. That's still a big phone coming from an iPhone 5, or Nokia feature phone. Apple has told their folks that want a...

Roku Adds Miracast Screen Mirroring to Recent Devices Commented on: 4 weeks ago (October 4, 2014)

Of course not. Why should WP apps have parity with iOS and Android? Just be grateful it is there at all. :(

Microsoft Arc Touch Bluetooth Mouse First Impressions Commented on: 4 weeks ago (October 2, 2014)
