Start Menu Will Replace Start Screen in Threshold Commented on: 8 weeks ago (July 1, 2014)

Sinofsky must be rolling over in whatever he is doing now. MS is due for a windows release that is so good that they can revert to perceived silliness (xp -> vista, w7 -> w8).

Thinking About Microsoft's Brands Commented on: 9 weeks ago (June 29, 2014)

Lumia always reminds me of a Chevy that didn't do so well. But then I thought Zune was the best MS brand and I still use media center as my dvr, so I'm clearly a negative indicator of product...

Amazon Fire Phone Preview Commented on: 10 weeks ago (June 20, 2014)

Amazon must have no confidence in subsidizing with store sales if they are resorting to subsidizing with ATT contracts.

Windows Phone 8.1 Tip: Master Storage Commented on: 17 weeks ago (May 3, 2014)

Another point - switching SD cards after installing apps. Use the phone memory as a "bridge" to move apps to another SD card. May take a couple bridgings (and restarts), but it works.

Dell Venue 11 Pro First Impressions and Photos Commented on: 28 weeks ago (February 10, 2014)

WinRT justification is harder with this tablet unless Microsoft can make WP / WinRT merge compelling. With Win9, Microsoft should require Surface keyboard port and kickstand for tablets.

Windows 8.1 Update 1: Disk Space Commented on: 29 weeks ago (February 4, 2014)

Thinking About the Windows 2-In-1 PC Commented on: 31 weeks ago (January 24, 2014)

Go Yoga. I have a 1st gen, and despite wifi issues, I would still recommend it. I like having the touch option, but I have few touch apps compelling enough for fingerprints on the screen.

Nokia Lumia 520 is the Best Tech Deal of 2013 Commented on: 36 weeks ago (December 20, 2013)

Out of stock for me. I've purchased 3 of these every month it goes down $10. At this rate it could be the first free no contract phone by spring. Subsidizing the L520 is better than paying for...

The Sad State of Amazon Apps on Windows Commented on: 37 weeks ago (December 9, 2013)

The wp8 audible app was just barely good enough to retire my Zune 8gb. I wish wp8 xbox music had no frills audiobook support like Zune, but then xbox music has been so buggy for me, I suspect...
