Windows 8.1 Update 1 Preview: Hands-on with Build 16610 Commented on: 29 weeks ago (February 8, 2014)

FrankenWindows! The desktop intrusion with the taskbar looks totally out of place (and truly disgusting) and very 1990's compared to the Modern UI look. Microsoft again just doesn't seem to be...

Windows 8.1 Update 1 Preview: Now with More Integration Commented on: 31 weeks ago (January 22, 2014)

If the desktop doesn't get a facelift to match the looks of modern apps it will still be as jarring as it is now. At the very least a theme should be available otherwise I don't see much point in...

Beats Music Preview Commented on: 32 weeks ago (January 18, 2014)

Fall 2013 Windows Tablet Preview Commented on: 50 weeks ago (September 12, 2013)
