Coming Soon: Threshold Public Preview Commented on: 14 weeks ago (August 17, 2014)

I for one have embraced Windows 8.x on all devices: tablet, Surface RT and laptop. Wihle I am one who considers this a backtracking, side-step, whatever you like to call it, I am ready to embrace...

It's Too Early to Write Off the Third Smartphone Ecosystem Commented on: 14 weeks ago (August 15, 2014)

I grow so weary of the articles that either portend the demise off Windows Phone or the articles with titles such as, "Why I'm going back to Android after dabbling in Windows Phone." They are as...

Xbox Music for Windows Phone 8.1 is Finally Usable Commented on: 14 weeks ago (August 11, 2014)

I find this frustrating, but it is improving. I have 2 3rd party players, and while I know they do not reflect the complexity of what MS is doing, they do respond somewhat better in several area...

Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1: Live Folders Commented on: 15 weeks ago (August 6, 2014)

I love the folders and I was not sure I would. You gave me some good ideas on the apps, but I have already moved even more should to my Start screen and have things colored to just one swipe....

Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1: First Impressions Commented on: 15 weeks ago (August 5, 2014)

Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 Preview Commented on: 16 weeks ago (July 30, 2014)

Windows Phone 8.1 Tip: Manage the Navigation Bar Commented on: 18 weeks ago (July 19, 2014)

If this were a pull-up navigation bar, as in some apps, it might be just as nice on a higher-end phone as well. I am surprised there is not a transparent option as well, allowing any pic chosen to...

Nokia X'd: Microsoft Goes All In on Windows Phone Commented on: 18 weeks ago (July 17, 2014)

X had to go forward as it in the time before MS acquired Nokia, but it was a dubious strategy if determined by Microsoft and this puts that canard to rest. Microsoft can't compete if they were to...

Got it! This is incredible, especially the price for upgrading. There is so much I can move there now, and this is the clincher for considering a 256gb Pro 3 in the future.
