Another review from Paul "Fat Fingers" Thurrott, the man with hands the size of Lou Ferrigno's.

Re the size differential between the SP 3 keyboard and this mobile keyboard, is the ratio...

Windows 10 Tip: Swap Between Start Menu and Start Screen Commented on: 3 weeks ago (October 2, 2014)

" ... you can switch between the Start menu and the Start screen at any time."

Good. I'd hate to lose the Start Screen.

Microsoft Announces Windows 10 Commented on: 3 weeks ago (October 1, 2014)

The fact that Metro Office didn't launch with Windows 8 has always seemed ridiculous to me. Office is MS's killer app. Instead, we *still* have no ETA on Modern Office, months after Office for...
