A look at the new Outlook Mail app in Windows 10 Mobile (Build 10051) Commented on: 1 year ago (April 14, 2015)

The hamburger menu is rightly criticized, because it's bad design. Apple and Android are both moving away from it. The pivots are much more attractive, and placing the app commands and hiding...

Interesting data, but how does one improve one's sleep with this information?

What the tweaked Start Screen transparency looks like in Windows 10 Commented on: 1 year ago (March 25, 2015)

What should we expect in the next Windows 10 build for phones? Commented on: 1 year ago (March 24, 2015)

Given Microsoft's behavior over WP7, to 7.5, 7.8, 8.0, and 8.1, I would sincerely expect them to remove additional features that we've come to know, love, and expect, without replacing them in any...
