Microsoft is Not Dropping Xbox Music or Xbox Video Commented on: 35 weeks ago (July 24, 2014)

This is all true, but you can't neglect to mention the performance issues that still plague the Windows 8/8.1 app. It still takes 5-10 minutes after launching to detect music added to your...

Xbox One: Instant Sign-In Commented on: 36 weeks ago (July 18, 2014)

Been missing this from the Xbox 360 badly. Having to stand in front of Kinect just to sign in is a nuisance. Thanks for pointing out that this feature has finally been brought over to the "...

Surface Pro 3 Tip: Hyper-V vs. Connected Standby Commented on: 39 weeks ago (June 23, 2014)

This is my problem with Windows RT and ARM being downplayed in the Windows tablet world. Connected Standby is essentially another hack onto x86, a platform that is more than two decades out of...

What's Happening with Windows Phone 8.1 Lock Screen Customization? Commented on: 41 weeks ago (June 12, 2014)

It is for all Windows Phone 8 devices. If you want the premium experience, you have to pay for a premium device. Don't buy the $59 phone and expect the most memory-intensive features to be...

Microsoft Touts the Windows 8.1 Mail Experience Commented on: 1 year ago (October 4, 2013)

Is there a way to get it to automatically mark the first unread message as read when you switch to that folder, as per the old behavior?

Windows 8.1 Tip: Master Auto-Snap Commented on: 1 year ago (September 23, 2013)

I've been using the 8.1 Preview and 8.1 RTM from TechNet now and I can't stand the new behavior. Is there a way to disable it?

There should be pre-defined snap areas for 1/3, 1/4 and 1/2....

Xbox Music Comes of Age Commented on: 1 year ago (September 17, 2013)

> And I know I'm still going to get complaints from those who find that it can't match their entire collection to the cloud or who still prefer old-school tools like the Zune PC software....
