Update 1 Becomes Mandatory on Windows 8.1 Today Commented on: 27 weeks ago (June 10, 2014)

I have to agree with the general consensus here. The "title bar" that appears on Metro apps when using the mouse is a nuisance that cannot be disabled. I can't tell you how many Citrix sessions I'...

Windows Phone Turned the Corner in 2013 Commented on: 1 year ago (December 19, 2013)

I have to agree with your observations. I really think that Microsoft has lost its way with Windows Phone since Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 came out. Everything isn't about live tiles, it's...

Final Nail in the Zune Coffin: Xbox Video Content Disappearing in February Commented on: 1 year ago (November 10, 2013)

I wouldn't say fantastic. It's improving, but still far from the mature state of the Zune platform/products. When I synced my Windows Phone 7 (or a Zune) to the PC, downloaded music was synced...

Windows Phone 8 + GDR2: Xbox Music Improvements Commented on: 1 year ago (August 31, 2013)

It didn't stop working, because it never started working. Every time I have ever downloaded a track to my phone that wasn't in Cloud Collection, I've always had to note it in OneNote so I could go...

RTM: What's In a Name? Commented on: 1 year ago (August 29, 2013)

Couldn't agree more about 8.1 being a regression away from Metro style guidelines. I'm deeply disappointed with how poor the in-app search has become. Instead of keeping search results in the app...

Windows 8.1 Leaked Build Shows Some Lessons Learned Commented on: 1 year ago (August 12, 2013)

I have to agree with you. The new search functionality is more confusing than ever. For example, if I go into Xbox Music and use the search box on the left, it automatically searches Xbox Music...
