Windows 10 is the Most Audacious Release in the History of the Platform Commented on: 4 weeks ago (October 25, 2014)

I don't agree that the changes in Windows 10 are major.

"Universal apps" already exist for tablet apps and phone apps on Windows 8.1. For sure, this is a good step for platform integration...

Windows 10 Tip: Share from File Explorer Commented on: 5 weeks ago (October 17, 2014)

Disappointing. I thought "share" would relate to sharing files with other people. Instead it's a way to send files to apps.

There are already ways to send files to apps in Windows. Open/...

Next Steps for Windows 10 Commented on: 6 weeks ago (October 7, 2014)

I agree with these but I think the leak about having desktop apps in the app store is a bigger deal than allowing tablet apps on the desktop. Tablet apps on the desktop are important but a second-...

Surface Pro 3 + Adobe Creative Cloud Commented on: 6 weeks ago (October 7, 2014)

Does Photoshop now work with Windows dpi scaling at last?

Windows 9 Technical Preview Screenshots Leak: An Analysis (Part 1) Commented on: 10 weeks ago (September 12, 2014)

I don't know what extra the Lumia 1520 could be given at this point, beyond fixing the touchscreen bug. I can't think of any deficiencies in the hardware specs.

IFA 2014: Toshiba's PCs and Tablets Commented on: 11 weeks ago (September 4, 2014)

Such poor offerings. How can they get away with these displays?

Encore mini: a 7" tablet at 1024 x 600! Even for 4-5" smartphones 720p is a minimum.

Satellite Pro R50-B: 15.6" 1366 x...

Xbox One Digital TV Tuner Coming to Europe in October Commented on: 15 weeks ago (August 9, 2014)

Will this work as a tuner on Windows? DVB-T2 tuners from reputable makers are very overpriced so this would be a great addition to the market.

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

"Apps corner" looks like a much improved version of the gimmiky "kid's corner" and should work well for parents. It's not full parental control as it doesn't filter internet, but given the poor...
