Surface Pro 3: Tablet? Commented on: 16 weeks ago (May 25, 2014)

Well, isn't everything a compromise?
I mean, sure, the iPad+MacBook is more flexible, but you have to carry more than twice the weight, and if you need to transfer stuff between them you...

Windows 8.1 Update 1 Review Commented on: 23 weeks ago (April 2, 2014)

Actually, some Metro apps (yeah, I call them that too) do have context menus. Internet Explorer, for instance.

If you said "but it doesn't match the Metro style" then you'd be spot on....

Paul Thurrott's Xbox Music 2.0 (Pre-Release 0.3) Commented on: 33 weeks ago (January 25, 2014)

Nope, you're not missing anything. It's gone.

I mean, other than games, it's the only app...

One Year Later, Kinect for Windows Remains a Non-Event Commented on: 1 year ago (March 18, 2013)

"Why isn't Microsoft selling this Minority Report device to consumers yet?"

Feeling Blue: Microsoft, You’re Releasing it Wrong Commented on: 1 year ago (February 25, 2013)

Microsoft Sticks a Skype-Shaped Dagger in Messenger Commented on: 1 year ago (February 18, 2013)

Yup. Skype is pretty bad as a IM app.

What's worse, the Skype app in WP 7.5 (or 7.8 but a *lot* more could be said about WP 7.8) is even worse, and doesn't even support logging in with a...

In New Ads, Nokia Mocks iPhone Commented on: 2 years ago (April 3, 2012) Well, it seems either you guys (the commenters!) didn't actually watch the videos or you guys really need to have your sense of humor checked. Also, you probably should know that there's a...
Even with Windows 8, Some Things Never Change Commented on: 2 years ago (March 20, 2012) As others have said, killing the process holding the file lock or simply killing the file handle can be pretty bad. That said, Windows should at least try telling the user *what* process is holding...
