NOOK – Microsoft Commented on: 37 weeks ago (December 4, 2014)

My great hope was that Word would be extended to be a full function ebook creation tool. It wouldn't take all that much to have it speak EPUB as a native format. Atlantis Word Processor does this...

It's Official: Microsoft Buys Acompli Commented on: 38 weeks ago (December 2, 2014)

That is dismaying. Such a bizarre design choice requires a detailed rationale. I agree that any email client that behaved like that would soon be uninstalled from my device.
