Windows 8.1 Upgrade: Step-By-Step Commented on: 43 weeks ago (October 17, 2013)

Downloading it now. I'm so jazzed.

Like some other reports, at first I only saw the Preview tile in the Store. I installed a couple of desktop updates, restarted, and when I went back to...

Microsoft Reimagines Xbox One Friends as a More Social Experience Commented on: 44 weeks ago (October 15, 2013)

Brilliant idea. If MS wants to be cutting edge, a Vine feature would be perfect.

Windows RT and Surface 2: What Will It Take? Commented on: 46 weeks ago (September 26, 2013)

The Metro version of MetroTwit is ironically the worst Metro app I've tried. I want to use it because I like the desktop version, but it's buggy and crashes frequently.

See Me Live in Rhode Island on Wednesday! Commented on: 48 weeks ago (September 17, 2013)

Hands-On with Windows 8.1 Commented on: 1 year ago (June 26, 2013)

Thanks, Paul. This is great reading while I download the 8.1 Preview.

I'm particularly keen to see what MS does with the Store. Currently it's so awful that I rarely want to go there.

Surface Pro Availability, Round 2 Commented on: 1 year ago (February 16, 2013)
