Windows Phone 8.1 Tip: Enable Double-Tap to Wake Commented on: 2 years ago (December 17, 2014)

This feature seemed to confuse my 1520: at times, I found it difficult to get past the lock screen when I did actually want to pick up and use the phone. So I disabled it again.

Spotify Family Highlights a Lingering Issue with Xbox Music Commented on: 2 years ago (October 20, 2014)

This highlights what is not exciting about new technology: the continual reinventing of the wheel that must occur, as the old guys who knew what they were doing are replaced by the new crop, that...

How Perception Will Kill Windows Phone Commented on: 3 years ago (August 19, 2014)

Windows phone is not going to get anywhere if people cannot finance them. Up in Canada, carrirers offer perhaps 1 model, or zero models to choose from. Microsoft cannot expect the average joe to...

A Charmless "Threshold" with Virtual Desktops? Commented on: 3 years ago (August 7, 2014)

I always found the degree of precision with which a mouse user needed to hit the exact corner to bring up the charms was annoying. They should have made the target a bit wider, is all.

Nokia Lumia 1520 Review Commented on: 3 years ago (June 19, 2014)

Took a while, but I finally caved in and bought a 1520 about a month ago, despite the warnings of it being too big.

Frankly, the size is impressive at first, but you do get used to it....

Surface Pro 3: When Bad Things Happen to a Good Tablet Commented on: 3 years ago (June 3, 2014)

I've had issues with my Surface 2 seemingly going into a coma. It would literally boot up from a shutdown state faster than it will emerge from hibernation. Lately, I've been closing the screen...

Windows Phone 8.1 Tip: Manage App Updates Commented on: 3 years ago (April 29, 2014)

I have a condition called appnaphobia: it's a fear of not knowing my apps are updating, so I turn that auto updates off :D

Thinking About the Future of Surface Commented on: 3 years ago (April 9, 2014)

I wouldn't object to a larger Surface, but I don't know as I'd go out and buy one. Generally speaking, I want some sort of Intel I7 cpu on a work (or serious gaming) computer. That's why I have it...
