Windows is Now Free for Phones and Mini-Tablets Commented on: 21 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: 21 weeks ago (April 3, 2014)

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

I was surprised that none of the demo images MS used during the keynote worked particularly well...

Microsoft Office for iPad Review Commented on: 22 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: 25 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: 30 weeks ago (January 28, 2014)

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

Microsoft Opens Xbox Music to Developers Commented on: 36 weeks ago (December 20, 2013)

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

Microsoft Tackles Chromebook, Again Commented on: 38 weeks ago (December 5, 2013)

Great ad! It feels more positive than the others stuff they've done recently which I appreciated. And wow, actually mentioning Photoshop and Illustrator?! Always nice when Microsoft bothers to...

Office Web Apps Gets Real-Time Co-Authoring, Other Updates Commented on: 42 weeks ago (November 7, 2013)

It's crazy how much functionality the web apps had already, let alone these new features added in.

The real-time co-authoring is huge and it's been a big thing that Google Docs has had over...

Dell Venue 8 Pro: What's Missing Commented on: 42 weeks ago (November 2, 2013)

It uses brand new Synaptics technology for the digitiser rather than Wacom (or NTrig) and so far results have been mixed.

Take a look at this thread, there's 80+ pages of comments. I think...
