Windows Phone 8.1 Preview: Podcasts Commented on: 23 weeks ago (February 12, 2014)

So excited to see this app. Podcasters have felt like second class citizens in the MS ecosystem ever since the demise of Zune. This is a big step towards correcting that.

MS has often...

Nokia Lumia "Black": Glance 2.0 Commented on: 26 weeks ago (January 25, 2014)

The Moto X provides this functionality and it could be argued it does it a little more elegantly with it's proximity aware on-off functionality. I think the Glance version contains far more info...

Rethinking "Paul Thurrott's Xbox Music" Commented on: 33 weeks ago (December 9, 2013)

Matching is definitely big. Please don't gloss over the limitations for music which you own but are unable to match. This I find is the greatest issue with my adopting Xbox Music. You imply the...

Xbox One: Xbox Music Commented on: 33 weeks ago (December 8, 2013)

Pandora: 200 Million Customers Commented on: 1 year ago (April 10, 2013)

Blue Commented on: 1 year ago (February 17, 2013)
