Office Online Improves with Tons of New Features Commented on: 1 day ago (April 16, 2014)

Um, IE doesn't support fully offline services so it's not MS showing preference to other platforms, it's simply them tailoring their services to suit the strengths of other platforms. It's smart...

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Review Commented on: 4 days ago (April 14, 2014)

It's a shame there don't seem to be any 3200x1800 14" panels in production anywhere, that would have been a much better option as a 1600x900 pixel double.

HiDPI should have been a new start...

Thinking About the Future of Surface Commented on: 1 week ago (April 9, 2014)

I'd hope they wouldn't ditch the tablet option altogether (Though they could easily cram an 11.6" screen in the current sized model) as I love the current form factor but am all for them providing...

Windows is Now Free for Phones and Mini-Tablets Commented on: 2 weeks ago (April 3, 2014)

This is great news! And, I'm assuming, near confirmation that until Threshold, Windows RT in it's current form is more-or-less dead?

Otherwise why not give RT away for free with it being...

Windows Phone 8.1: Start Screen Commented on: 2 weeks ago (April 3, 2014)

As you say, it must be done properly and carefully or else it just looks messy and tacky.

Microsoft Office for iPad Review Commented on: 3 weeks ago (March 27, 2014)

Adobe? Irrelevant?

Lol, hardly. Adobe simply realised who it's actual paying customers are (professionals) and decided to build products for them.

Microsoft is doing the same, and I...

Music Videos Arrive on Xbox One Commented on: 6 weeks ago (March 4, 2014)

I really hope this comes to the Xbox Music app, it's such a great idea! Mainly want it for the Windows version but it would be a cool option to have for Windows Phone too.

Office Online? Commented on: 11 weeks ago (January 28, 2014)

I'd imagine email will stay Outlook and the business version will become Outlook Pro, similar to what they've done to SkyDrive.

Or Outlook Online and Outlook Online Pro. Hopefully nothing...

Microsoft Opens Xbox Music to Developers Commented on: 16 weeks ago (December 20, 2013)

Probably not. Users on the web and on Windows 8.1 have access to free (ad-supported) streaming anyway and I assume that will be coming to Xbox One and Windows Phone sooner or later and eventually...

The Death of Integrated Experiences? Commented on: 16 weeks ago (December 20, 2013)

They should at least keep the basics for the integrations such as the people hub, me tile, and photos hub.

I've honestly never been that bothered by integration into the photos hub by the...
