More Lumia? Or Less(er) Lumia? Commented on: 7 weeks ago (November 7, 2014)

I think that Microsoft needs to sell direct to consumers. The carriers have not been their friend. They should tailor the hardware to the network and sell unlocked phones directly. They are not...

AT&T Finally Announces Lumia 830 Pricing Commented on: 7 weeks ago (November 3, 2014)

You might want to add the Thinkpad Yoga to the list. It offers OneLink dock support, Wacom active digitizer, and TrackPoint (which beats a trackpad hands down). Screen is the 1920x1080. Microsoft...
