I understand why people want to do this - personalization and all.

Unfortunately, it's also ugly as sin.

Universal Apps to Bind Windows, Phone and Xbox One Commented on: 2 weeks ago (April 3, 2014)

What does this mean for people who've bought WP apps today? Will we be getting access to the Windows 8 Metro apps in the future as part of app upgrades?

It's Official: OneNote is Now Free for Everyone Commented on: 4 weeks ago (March 17, 2014)

Not being too familiar with these note-taking apps, can someone tell me what the pros and cons of OneNote are versus Evernote?

PlayStation 4 at 6 Million: What?! Commented on: 6 weeks ago (March 5, 2014)
