Nokia Icon Review Commented on: 27 weeks ago (April 21, 2014)

I'm in a similar situation, stuck on AT&T due to my employer, and love almost everything about the Icon. I'll continue to muddle through on my unlocked 925 and HTC One (company email is WebDAV...

Microsoft to Improve Xbox Music for Windows Phone 8.1, Other Platforms Commented on: 27 weeks ago (April 20, 2014)

My biggest issue is that MS doesn't seem to draw a distinction between music playing and library management and an online music service.

The service is decent, playback passable and the...

Thinking About the Future of Surface Commented on: 29 weeks ago (April 9, 2014)

I don't think the device portfolio really matters. It's all about services and having devices that provide access to a robust ecosystem.

RT was a flop because out of the box it didn't...

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (2014) First Impressions and Photos Commented on: 32 weeks ago (March 19, 2014)

MS has often...

Rethinking "Paul Thurrott's Xbox Music" Commented on: 46 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: 46 weeks ago (December 8, 2013)
