Can Microsoft Turn Digital Ink Into a Key Advantage for Windows and Surface? Commented on: 26 weeks ago (May 19, 2014)

Given the number of inquiries Paul gets regarding stylus support for every tablet he reviews, I assume that digital ink has a bigger market than we think. Now, we could suppose that the same 10...

Windows Store App Gets a Major Update Commented on: 27 weeks ago (May 13, 2014)

Impressive update in every way. No doubt someone will find something to complain about, but for me, this is a huge positive step.

Some nice touches. Now, if 2 Modern apps are snapped together, I assume each will have a taskbar icon. Can I assume that clicking on one will bring up both, snapped side by side?
