Surface Pro 3 Tip: Hyper-V vs. Connected Standby Commented on: 5 weeks ago (June 21, 2014)

Now, unfortunately, this is typical Microsoft. A lack of integration between software and hardware. Had this been Apple, they would naturally have fixed Hyper-V so that everything worked correctly...

Microsoft Provides Free Data Transfer Tool to XP Users Commented on: 20 weeks ago (March 3, 2014)

Quite simple - they are going to get what they deserve. Hanging on to a 13-yeal-old OS *will* cause you trouble sooner or later.

What the Heck is Happening to Windows? Commented on: 24 weeks ago (February 9, 2014)

While I don't think it quite so bad as you decribe (at least not yet), I agree with your core point: Microsoft is *horrible* when it comes to communication with developers.
Microsoft has a...

Windows 8.1 Update 1 Preview: Hands-on with Build 16610 Commented on: 24 weeks ago (February 7, 2014)

Yes, the luddites have won again. Metro is not bad on traditional PCs, just different. That being said, making Windows 8 feel like one operating system would be nice, but that is mostly a UI...

Windows 8.1 Update 1 Preview: Hands-on with Build 16596 Commented on: 24 weeks ago (February 3, 2014)

One question that I haven't seen adressed anywhere yet: With right-click on the Start screen being appropriated for a context menu, how is selecting multiple tiles handled? In Windows 8.1, you...

Windows 8.1 Book: First Draft of the Photos Chapter is Now Complete Commented on: 44 weeks ago (September 23, 2013)

Is it still impossible to adjust the slideshow speed in the Photos app? In Windows 8 it is so ridiculously fast that it is useless for actually showing your photos on a TV for example. I find this...

Microsoft Details New and Updated Bing Apps in Windows 8.1 Commented on: 44 weeks ago (September 21, 2013)

You fail to mention that fact that the Bing News app is still useless in many countries. Denmark, for example, has no content, even though Sweden and Norway have content. That is just ridiculous....

Microsoft Announces Skype for Outlook.com Commented on: 48 weeks ago (August 19, 2013)

That Metro Skype notification looks interesting... I take it this is the recently leaking Win 8.1 build, right? Then it appears to have an updated Skype app as well. Anything else new in that?

Microsoft Provides a “First Look” at Windows 8.1 Commented on: 1 year ago (May 31, 2013)

Windows 8.1 is looking great - thanks for the excellent coverage so far!
I do note one curious thing, which I haven't seen anyone address yet: In the first screenshot, the four small tiles...

Why is the Facebook Beta App for Windows Phone 8 Identical to the Android and iOS Apps? Commented on: 1 year ago (May 2, 2013)

The real example of how this should be done is the Skype app for WP8. Beatiful, space-effecient and Metro - that is how it should be done. But - if this is what is takes to get an updated FB app (...
