Is Microsoft taking the Windows 10 Start Screen in the wrong direction? Commented on: 1 year ago (February 1, 2015)

I get the full screen start menu idea, and it's ok, but there's a better way to do this.

Microsoft to Hold Windows 10 Consumer Event on January 21 Commented on: 1 year ago (December 12, 2014)

I've been having that same crisis of faith since earlier this year with the Windows Phone 8.1 Dev Preview. X-Box Music, X-Box Video, removing social networking and hubs? Huge miscommunications...

Here are the Top User Requests for Windows 10 Commented on: 1 year ago (October 10, 2014)

I would be pretty amazed if Cortana let me do that on PC. Even better, boot and load a specific program - "Computer, play Christmas music" - it boots, then opens your Christmas music playlist.

10 iPhone 6/iOS 8 Features I'd Like to See in Windows Phone Commented on: 2 years ago (September 22, 2014)

We had message synch on Windows Phone 8/Windows 8, when we had Windows Live Messenger. But wait, Microsoft scrapped that for Skype for some reason. And so we lost a proven, great messenger for...
