Microsoft is Not Dropping Xbox Music or Xbox Video Commented on: 17 weeks ago (July 23, 2014)

Paul,

I still rip music I purchase on CDs for several bands I enjoy, as does my girlfriend. The cloud isn't everything. Especially since there is not yet (but soon will be, apparently,...

WPC 2014: Microsoft's Android Counterattack Commented on: 18 weeks ago (July 17, 2014)

Microsoft really needs to get some killer apps for their products, not just lower prices (quality). Give me Civilization 4, SimCity, Age of Empires, Star Trek Online, Street Fighter IV, King of...

Windows Phone 8.1 Review Commented on: 18 weeks ago (July 15, 2014)

I returned to 8.0 from 8.1 due to a buggy Start screen, lack of social integration - I couldn't reply/like Facebook comments in the People Hub; the Me Tile was gutted; Photo integration was gutted...

Here Comes Windows Phone 8.1 and Lumia Cyan Commented on: 18 weeks ago (July 15, 2014)

I will pass on this. I really do not believe it's in my best interests to give up social integration and the Hubs in favor of a half-baked notification center, a cursor that's more difficult to...

Get Windows Phone 8.1 as Soon as Possible Commented on: 20 weeks ago (July 3, 2014)

I tried it for about 3 weeks, and then upgraded to 8.0. I can't stand the lack of social network integration and the dissolution of the hubs. Without them, I can't see the point of using Windows...

Windows Phone 8.1 Was Going to Include a Folders Feature Commented on: 20 weeks ago (July 1, 2014)

Folders are nice, but not anything that would make me upgrade from 8.0.

I need to see 8.1 restore all the social integration and hubs that were removed from 8.0, a real Zune Hub with Zune...

Xbox Music for Windows Phone 8.1 Updated for 4th Time Commented on: 23 weeks ago (June 12, 2014)

I've flat-out stopped listening to music on my phone. Aside from having only 16GB to work with (which fills easily with every app), streaming only works so long before my carrier limits my data...

Microsoft Updates Windows Phone 8.1 Developer Preview Commented on: 27 weeks ago (May 14, 2014)

There are a few nice things in 8.1 - more tabs in IE, tab button, swipe gestures, but too many drawbacks - People doesn't have a 'recent' pivot, Facebook integration's been removed everywhere, and...

Windows Phone 8.1 Tip: Master Social Networking Integration Commented on: 30 weeks ago (April 23, 2014)

I disagree with your comment on the Connect pivot. We used to not even need that. We could use FB/Twitter in the 'What's New' pivot because it was deeply integrated. Why should I have to use an...

Windows Phone On-Screen Buttons? Commented on: 48 weeks ago (December 16, 2013)

I would disagree with this idea - both virtual buttons and capacitive buttons. Just put actual, real, physical buttons on the device. That solves the problem of accidentally brushing the...
