Windows Weekly 364: With Bing! Commented on: 13 weeks ago (May 29, 2014)

Wow, the German in that machine translation bit was bad. Cute as a gimmick, but if someone tried to do that to me I'd be amused for about one or two sessions and after that I'd politely suggest...

Microsoft Updates Windows Phone 8.1 Developer Preview Commented on: 15 weeks ago (May 14, 2014)

This might very well be a placebo effect but my 520 feels more snappy, apps don't need to restart as often because they're out of memory and the dropdown menu is more responsive. Nice.

Stephen Elop Speaks on Microsoft + Nokia Commented on: 18 weeks ago (April 28, 2014)

I'm using both a US-English keyboard and a Dutch one, swyping work on both of them. My phone's region is set to the U.S. though. Speaking of international shenanigans, I wonder if MS will end up...

Windows Phone 8.1 Tip: Sync Settings with Your PCs and Tablets Commented on: 19 weeks ago (April 19, 2014)

My battery was draining like a mofo (and that's putting it mildly) on my 520 after installing 8.1, even after a hard reset. Turns out that IE sync was the culprit, turning it off is like the...

Updates to Windows 8.1 are a Step Forward, Not a Retreat Commented on: 21 weeks ago (April 5, 2014)

I'm reluctantly going to have to agree with Microsoft on their launch decision. Looking at Mozilla's strategy to abandon Metro, Microsoft's choice to abandon several markets (including the one I...

Windows 8.1 Update 1 + ModernMix? Commented on: 29 weeks ago (February 6, 2014)

Some videos of the leaked build show a taskbar that stays on-screen and turns black when a full-screen metro app is launched from the desktop and disappears when the app gains focus. What's the...

SkyDrive Becomes OneDrive Commented on: 31 weeks ago (January 27, 2014)

A senseless and frivolous lawsuit because a licensing deal could have easily been struck and Microsoft decided to give up and roll over without a fight? Or because of the "sky" bit? Because that...

Windows Phone Surges in Europe Commented on: 47 weeks ago (October 1, 2013)

I wonder if MS effectively killing the Nokia brand will have a strong negative effect on sales in Europe, just when they are starting to pick up. Quite frankly, this wouldn't surprise me. At all....
