What I Use: On the Road Commented on: 1 year ago (April 18, 2013)

Trains are great.

My one difference from you is that i prefer a standalone gps, rather than using a phone. Also, i still have paper backups, including print outs of mapping sites and...

Nokia Was Right to Bet on Windows Phone Commented on: 1 year ago (April 18, 2013)

I think your title is wrong, because we have no idea of knowing how well alternate strategies would have been. We do know that their current stragey is destroying what used to be a market-leading...

Windows Phone 8: State of the Handset Hardware Commented on: 1 year ago (April 15, 2013)

Higher specs would be better than lower, certainly. I have a lumia 620, and while it is a very nice phone it only has 512 MB of RAM. This is the minimum for WP8 today, and already some apps such...

Windows Phone Book: Games Chapter is Complete Commented on: 1 year ago (April 12, 2013)

The way some games are labelled as 'xbox live' really confuses me. Some of the games list 'xbox' as a requirement, so I thought these were games for the xbox console. After reading this chapter...

Nokia Adds Storage Check Tool to Lumia Handsets Commented on: 1 year ago (April 12, 2013)

I just got the update on my 620, and I tried this tool. My 'other' was using 3 out of 8 GB. Turns out it was all the offline maps I had downloaded, for some reason these don't show up under the...

Naming the Books Commented on: 1 year ago (April 10, 2013)

I prefer your first group of titles, which include your name. I would just shorten the "pocket field guides" to just "pocket guides" to make it less verbose. Maybe even just "guide".

Windows Phone Book: Email 0.2 Commented on: 1 year ago (March 31, 2013)

This book really interests me. I bought a lumia 620 to play with wp8, and this book is a solid guide. It is hard to find this kind of nuts and bolts info online.

When this is finished I...

Thanks alot for writing this free book Paul.

I love music, but have yet to move beyond the CD rip. I've got access to this stuff on my pc and phone, so maybe I will check this out.

Windows Blue Leaks! Commented on: 1 year ago (March 24, 2013)

I think this is a good but not great update. The changes you talk about here make Windows 8 a better touch OS.

However, the big problem with Windows 8 is that few people want Windows for...

Windows Phone 8 App Pick: Skype 2.4 Commented on: 1 year ago (March 19, 2013)

Paul, people ask about Windows Phone 7 because they want to know if things will work on their phone. WP7 sold poorly, but I bet alot of readers here have them.
