Download and Install the Windows 8.1 Preview Commented on: 1 year ago (June 28, 2013)

I'm going to go the iso route and install it to another partition (so my real Win8 install isn't affected--uh, hopefully...;))

To my friends in the UK--I think there's been a...

Windows Weekly 317: Xbox 180 Commented on: 1 year ago (June 21, 2013)

Enjoyed your comments on "family sharing," Paul...you heard Microsoft say the same thing I heard, that you would have a "family list" of 10 people so that you could buy one copy of the game and...

Microsoft Reverses Course on Xbox One Policies Commented on: 1 year ago (June 19, 2013)
