BLU Win HD First Impressions Commented on: 4 weeks ago (September 22, 2014)

I'll probably buy one of these (maybe the JR) to replace my media player (which is currently an old WP7 Samsung Focus S). But... why are these plastic phones so heavy? This phone weighs more than...

Surface Pro 3 Demand Outstrips Supply Commented on: 5 weeks ago (September 12, 2014)

We'll know it's a success when they show us the numbers. It's as simple as that. Until then, it's "the boy who cried 'shortage.'"

First Android Apps Appear on Chrome OS Commented on: 5 weeks ago (September 11, 2014)

We need Android apps on Windows phones to break the virtuous cycle of "no market share = no apps." A lot of Android users are curious about Windows Phone and possible switchers... but just one or...

Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus Preview Commented on: 5 weeks ago (September 9, 2014)

Agree. Sadly, I don't consider the 930 a worthy upgrade to the 920. The 920 was unique and curvy and fun. The 930 is square and awkward looking and "hurty" (as Paul penned it) in my opinion. Not...

Bing Apps Rebranded as MSN, Will Move Cross-Platform This Year Commented on: 6 weeks ago (September 8, 2014)

MSN Relaunch: Microsoft's Content Brand Enters the Mobile First, Cloud First Era Commented on: 6 weeks ago (September 8, 2014)

The new website and the features are fantastic (I might actually use it now), but the brand, "MSN", is pretty outdated... and harkens back to the days of AOL.

I think their "SOCL" brand is...

Cortana Puts iPhone Users in Group Therapy Commented on: 6 weeks ago (September 8, 2014)

They need to shrink it down to 60 seconds... and then down to 30 seconds after everyone knows what's going on. No one's going to watch a 2-minute commercial these days.

Thinking About Microsoft's New Lumias Commented on: 6 weeks ago (September 7, 2014)

I have no problem with Microsoft releasing a wide range of "affordable" devices, especially when they look as good as these do. Both the 730 and 830 improve on the good looks of previous flagship...

Microsoft China: Windows 9 is "Coming Soon" Commented on: 6 weeks ago (September 2, 2014)

I don't think the "9" is a font. It's the Windows (four-block) logo... in the form of a 9.

Either way, I like it.

Consumer Apps and Services: Microsoft's Often-Overlooked Crown Jewels Commented on: 7 weeks ago (August 31, 2014)

If no one knows about Microsoft's products and services, it's because Microsoft doesn't advertise them.

It's probably a good idea that Microsoft NOT advertise them as "Microsoft products,"...
