Windows 8.1 Update 1 + ModernMix? Commented on: 44 weeks ago (February 7, 2014)

When WinRT was first announced (2011) one of my first questions on the Microsoft forum was to ask when we can expect WinRT apps to run on the desktop? Technically its not difficult (as ModernMix...

Windows 8.1 Update 1 Preview: Now with More Integration Commented on: 47 weeks ago (January 23, 2014)

Completely agree jump lists are a key feature of making many WinRT apps useful in the task bar. For document-oriented applications (such as Office apps) jump lists are dramatically more useful for...

"Threshold" to be Called Windows 9, Ship in April 2015 Commented on: 48 weeks ago (January 12, 2014)

With perhaps 250 million or more W8 users by April 2015, doing a Vista->W7 on them and charging consumers to upgrade to W9 if they don't want to be stuck with an acknowledged unsatisfactory...

Lenovo Miix 2 Review Commented on: 1 year ago (December 18, 2013)

Paul, does this run the WIndows 8.1 32bit or 64bit? Perhaps not that many of us yet who run 64bit only applications but in my case its a deal breaker.

Dell Venue 8 Pro Review Commented on: 1 year ago (November 12, 2013)

Windows Phone Surges in Europe Commented on: 1 year ago (October 1, 2013)

Indeed. My teenage son (we are living in the UK) has a Lumia 520 and total spend for phone hardware + running costs works out about $10/month (spread over 2 years).

So long as people in the...

Surface 2 Specifications Commented on: 1 year ago (September 24, 2013)
