Windows Phone 8.1 Was Going to Include a Folders Feature Commented on: 16 weeks ago (June 30, 2014)

It's not this single one feature, but a whole lot of little things like it. Death by a 1000 paper cuts. Like how the quiet hours feature isn't available outside the U.S. because it's tied to...

Thinking About Microsoft's Brands Commented on: 16 weeks ago (June 29, 2014)

Why would MS want to completely replace the Surface brand after spending so much time and energy on it? Just when the Surface 3 is getting good press they want to get rid of it? Using the Lumia...

Bing Rewards for Windows Phone 8/8.1 Commented on: 16 weeks ago (June 27, 2014)

I feel like such a broken record, but you might want to add that Bing Rewards is a US-only type of deal.

Xbox Music for Windows Phone 8.1 Updated for 4th Time Commented on: 19 weeks ago (June 11, 2014)

Now it's even slower and it's giving me error messages left and right. Do they have a single intern working on this thing? I'm not even joking, what's going on over there?

Windows Weekly 364: With Bing! Commented on: 21 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: 23 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: 25 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: 26 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: 28 weeks ago (April 5, 2014)

I'm ok with these steps. If phasing out the desktop like a legacy system, dismissing Metro as a failure, keeping the current Frankenstein situation, or maintaining two seperate RT/"pro" versions...

Universal Apps to Bind Windows, Phone and Xbox One Commented on: 29 weeks ago (April 3, 2014)

At first, I thought that "universal app" was a cop out, because of the lack of a true universal run-time (I think?), but it makes perfect sense if you just download an app you purchased from the...
