Windows 8.1 Upgrade Woes Commented on: 40 weeks ago (October 19, 2013)

I had to use the ms-windows-store:WindowsUpgrade trick that you posted in order to get either of my two PCs to upgrade - thank a ton for that, Paul. Both were running 8.1 preview and neither saw...

Microsoft Adds a Little Siri to Windows Phone Commented on: 1 year ago (June 17, 2013)

One thing that Microsoft does that I'm not sure Apple does is provide an interface to the voice recognition system for 3rd party developers. Part of that interface is integration with voice...

Microsoft Announces New Mice with Dedicated Start Buttons Commented on: 1 year ago (May 23, 2013)

Agreed, I use the back button on my mouse everywhere (and even get annoyed when it doesn't work as expected). I couldn't imagine living without one.

Xbox One Photos Commented on: 1 year ago (May 22, 2013)

Microsoft is Adding Google Chat to Outlook.com Commented on: 1 year ago (May 15, 2013)

What I'd really like to see is a way of removing an app from the "Not Installed on This PC" list in the store. My list is cluttered with free and trial apps that I downloaded, tried once, and...

Windows 8/RT: State of the Tablet/Hybrid Hardware Commented on: 1 year ago (April 15, 2013)

This might sound crazy but hear me out for just a sec: they should make a version of Windows RT that runs on x86. Honestly I think they will, and this is why it is not called "Windows on ARM" or...

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

The one thing I really like about Pandora, that I haven't seen elsewhere, is the ability to manually add stuff to your stations. For example, I have a "Blues and Beach" station that was created...

Blue’s Clues: Blue is Windows 8.1 Commented on: 1 year ago (April 2, 2013)

To be fair the 6.3 can be thought of as the kernel-level version, and will be completely hidden from users. I doubt many people (outside of tech circles) realized Windows 7 was 6.1 internally, or...
