Windows 8.1 + Miracast Commented on: 40 weeks ago (November 15, 2013)

So both Miracast and Wi-Di are forms of WiFi Direct. Wi-Di is Intel's proprietary protocol, and only works with Intel WiFi cards in laptops/tablets (so not on the Surface Pros, which use Marvell,...

In Praise of Island-Style Keyboards Commented on: 46 weeks ago (October 6, 2013)

Microsoft Kills TechNet Subscriptions Commented on: 1 year ago (July 2, 2013)
