Surface 2 at $350: Time to Buy? Commented on: 9 weeks ago (August 26, 2014)

$100 for the 32Gb to 64Gb storage upgrade remains ludicrously expensive. Add in the cost of keyboard for office etc. and the sums don't add up.

I considered buying one simply to test...

Skype is About to Get a Lot Less Annoying Commented on: 10 weeks ago (August 20, 2014)

WP7.8 phones are already always "blissfully silent" for Skype. One step at a time eh Eric.

Embracing Web Apps Commented on: 10 weeks ago (August 18, 2014)

Definitely cheating - not a web app my book if uses flash or Silverlight (r.i.p.).

Web Apps should also respect the system on which they are running if they have a platform-native look -...

Coming Soon: Threshold Public Preview Commented on: 10 weeks ago (August 16, 2014)

'Technology preview' sounds like something that may or may not be aimed at developers. Speaking as a developer, my biggest interest in this 8.2/9 release is the next version of WinRT - questions...

Microsoft Abruptly Kills Skype for Windows Phone 7 Commented on: 11 weeks ago (August 8, 2014)

Gun. Foot. Aim. Fire. Hard to think up a better way for Microsoft to tell users its safer to stick with Android or iOS than take a chance on Windows phone. As SvenJ already commented they could at...

Getting Windows to the Threshold Commented on: 17 weeks ago (July 1, 2014)

Whatever the name, speaking as a developer if I produce a Windows store app I need a common API and mode of use for the 500million+ or whatever Windows 8 users there will be when Threshold ships...

Lenovo ThinkPad 10 First Impressions and Photos Commented on: 19 weeks ago (June 17, 2014)

Paul. Given that its 2014 not 2011 any rationale for using USB 2.0 rather than 3.0? Or is this a typo?

Is 2014 the Year of the Hybrid PC? Commented on: 19 weeks ago (June 14, 2014)

The considerable delay in Broadwell/14nm from Intel this year has been the big story IMO.

Broadwell should enable lower end PCs to go fanless and 'pro' hybrid systems to jump the...

Surface Pro 3: More Configurations, But Not Truly Configurable Commented on: 22 weeks ago (May 30, 2014)

Everything good about Surface Pro 3 is present in the $799 entry level model - I particularly hope OEMs will finally grasp that 16:9 is a poor screen choice for laptop/tablet and we'll see a...

Surface Pro 3: Let's Talk About the Price Commented on: 23 weeks ago (May 22, 2014)

Its not the $1128 for me as much as the additional cost of making it usable for image/video editing and software development. E.g. $300 to add 128Gb storage and 4Gb RAM to the base i5. $950 for a...
