Sony PlayStation 4: First Impressions and Photos Commented on: 1 year ago (November 17, 2013)

One note about the cost of PSN+ vs Xbox Live. While it is true that the MSRP of PSN+ is lower than that for Xbox Live, it is quite easy to find substantial discounts on Xbox Live cards. I've...

Gamer Changers? Commented on: 1 year ago (November 16, 2013)

True but it is a flawed comparison. It is akin to comparing sales of dirt bikes to cars of all sorts rather than just cars limited to off-road that otherwise live on a trailer.

Windows 8.1 + Miracast Commented on: 1 year ago (November 15, 2013)

The big problem is that I expect most people who are attracted to this would also find an HTPC even more attractive. Just transfer the file and have the full use of your device while the HTPC...

Xbox One Entertainment App Preview Commented on: 1 year ago (November 8, 2013)

I wonder if they've gotten any cooperation from device makers like TiVo. If integration with a recent TiVo model is as simple as the setup for the TiVo PC software, that would be about as painless...

A New Xbox One Blunder: Call of Duty Ghosts Will Only Run at 720p Commented on: 1 year ago (November 1, 2013)

Desktop No Longer a Default Start Screen Tile in Windows RT 8.1 Commented on: 1 year ago (October 24, 2013)

RT desperately needs a Metro equivalent of the File Explorer. Aside from the Office apps, this is a major reason to still need to go to the desktop. I'm kind of surprise that MS hasn't made this a...

Windows 8.1 OEM Media Commented on: 1 year ago (October 22, 2013)

It's an elaborate illusion. What you are looking at is a hologram of a blue DVD. It's adds about fifty bucks to the cost of the product but you have to agree it's well worth the expense.

Why Microsoft Didn't Make a Bay Trail Surface Commented on: 1 year ago (October 21, 2013)

I'm not buying it. An all-Metro version of Windows (which is to say an OS that doesn't actually do a windowed UI) would be a miserable obstacle to how I and millions of other savvy users get work...

Windows 8.1 Upgrade Woes Commented on: 1 year ago (October 18, 2013)

The biggest annoyance I've run into is the upgrade doesn't respect non-default file type assignments. To restore my email opening links in Firefox I had to first change the assignment to another...
