Today's $300 PCs Already Compete with Chromebook Commented on: 1 week ago (August 22, 2014)

I recommended that particular Dell to a friend and have used it. It's obviously not a power house, but more than adequate for internet browsing and using MS Office. Games in the Modern UI run...

Microsoft is Not Dropping Xbox Music or Xbox Video Commented on: 5 weeks ago (July 23, 2014)

I'm actually amazed that Microsoft has continued to support a hybrid functionality. I'm an old Zune Pass subscriber that gets to keep 10 songs per month. I can redeem them in Zune or in Xbox...

Nokia X'd: Microsoft Goes All In on Windows Phone Commented on: 6 weeks ago (July 17, 2014)

Hallelujah!

X made sense for an independent Nokia. It made zero sense for Microsoft. That said, those are good looking phones on the low end that should draw the eye. They also don't...

Google Chrome Goes 64-Bit on Windows Commented on: 12 weeks ago (June 3, 2014)

Very embarrassing for many Google honks. I've had some Google junkies downplay IE, Safari, and Firefox's 64-bit versions when that would be brought up in a discussion about browsers. The...

Surface Pro 3 Preview Commented on: 14 weeks ago (May 20, 2014)

I'll be interested to hear more of your observations, especially on Windows Weekly tomorrow. As of right now, it looks like Microsoft nailed it. This looks like the first of its kind and more...

File Manager App Coming to Windows Phone 8.1 Commented on: 17 weeks ago (May 3, 2014)

Windows Phone 8.1 Tip: Master Social Networking Integration Commented on: 19 weeks ago (April 17, 2014)

Fantastic. Keeps the great Windows Phone experience with Hubs, yet allows for more consistent updates and upgrades in the apps. Be cool if they brought back the music hub and created a separate...

Windows Phone 8.1 Tip: Use Reading View in IE 11 Commented on: 19 weeks ago (April 14, 2014)

I love reading view on my tablet and this is just as good. Also great is adding the swipe capability to go back, just like on Windows 8.1.

Microsoft can perfect this by bringing Reading...

Windows 8.1 Update 1 Tip: Take the Next Step with ModernMix Commented on: 20 weeks ago (April 11, 2014)

Stardock's implementation of windowed Modern apps isn't perfect. It's workable, but has flaws. For instance, if your last usage of an app was in Desktop but you open it on the Start Screen, it'...

Windows 8.1 Update 1 Arrives Commented on: 20 weeks ago (April 8, 2014)

Paul, is there some kind of weird sync setting I'm missing? My desktop has no touchscreen and was updated through Windows Update. It says it has installed the Windows 8.1 Update, yet no power...
