Get a Free Xbox Dot View Case When You Buy HTC One M8 for Windows Commented on: 4 weeks ago (November 17, 2014)

As an added incentive to Verizon customers, is there a guarantee that the phone will be offered in January 2015? No, I didn't think so...

Microsoft Releases a Group Video Chat Companion App for Skype Commented on: 9 weeks ago (October 15, 2014)

Very useful and fun. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear to be available for Windows Phone 8. Although I'm using the 8.1 developer preview on my Icon, I haven't updated my wife's Icon, and Verizon...

Bing Health & Fitness App Updated with Pedometer Functionality in Nokia Lumia 630 and 635 Commented on: 29 weeks ago (May 30, 2014)

Glad to read about this addition to a very useful app. I use this daily, and I love the integration with MS HealthVault. Together, they're terrific services.

If Microsoft Doesn't Fix Xbox One Reputation, I'm Out Commented on: 38 weeks ago (March 27, 2014)

Good article. I haven't played games for a couple years -- and even then, only in single-player mode. However, I don't trust any community-based policing system, because of the potential for abuse...

Windows 8.1 Update 1 Preview: Hands-on with Build 16596 Commented on: 45 weeks ago (February 4, 2014)

I have to admit, after my complaints about Windows 8, I finally upgraded to 8.1 last week (yeah, I'm a procrastinator). Really takes care of my problems with Windows. What I don't understand,...

Nokia Brings Amber, Pro Camera to More Lumia Handsets Commented on: 1 year ago (August 18, 2013)

No FM Radio in the Amber update from Verizon, at least on my Lumia 928. Absolutely pisses me off -- this is the single feature that I looked forward to using. My suspicion is that VZ wants users...

Microsoft Adds a Little Siri to Windows Phone Commented on: 1 year ago (June 17, 2013)

These are all useful, if limited -- and thanks for the tip about movies. As you said, I'll take what I can get.

I do get quite a bit of use out of speech-to-text for sending and receiving...

Windows 8: A Six-Month Report Card Commented on: 1 year ago (May 1, 2013)

Agree, for the most part. Can't comment about Surface devices because I don't own one.

I'd also add that the App Store needs a _serious_ update. It's a mess; a chaotic, jumbled mess.

The Nokia Advantage: Apps Commented on: 1 year ago (March 15, 2013)

Thank you for writing about the Nokia apps. When I switched from an iPhone to WP8 a few months ago, I was bummed that Verizon offered only the HTC and the "mid-range" 822, thanks to the 920...
