Short Takes Daily: What went on in the world of Microsoft on Thursday, July 30, 2015 Commented on: 1 day ago (July 31, 2015)

I made the mistake of clicking on the Office Mobile link and it took me to InfoWorld. That site has some of the most horrid Microsoft bashing and clickbait headlines I've ever seen. It makes...

How To: Fix the 80240020 Windows 10 Installation Error Commented on: 1 day ago (July 30, 2015)

Didn't work for me on my desktop. I get a failure message almost instantly. Doesn't appear to be a corrupt or interrupted download since the Windows.~BT folder was exactly the same size (3.75GB...

There was a Google I/O Keynote without any mention of Windows Phone or Microsoft Commented on: 9 weeks ago (May 29, 2015)

Google isn't just ignoring Windows Phone, they are actively trying to ensure none of their services have a decent application on WP. Google wants the complete control of all information from top...

Surface 3: It's all about the Pen Commented on: 16 weeks ago (April 7, 2015)

It isn't writing I use the pen for, it is drawing and annotating. It is much more difficult to convey relationships and ideas about physical objects with just words. A quick sketch can capture...

Would You Buy a non-Pro Surface Tablet? Commented on: 18 weeks ago (March 26, 2015)

Microsoft Work & Play is the Uber Subscription Service You Asked For Commented on: 37 weeks ago (November 11, 2014)

Too bad it is only in stores. I would be very interested in this since my Gold subscription expires this month, my one year of Skype World that came with my Surface 2 goes out on December 31, and...

Windows Phone Stats: October 2014 Commented on: 39 weeks ago (October 28, 2014)

Sad the Icon doesn't even show up as a separate device. It was supposed to be the flagship Lumia device, yet the older 920 and 925 still command 9.4% of usage. Verizon and Microsoft really...

All Xbox One Models See $50 Price Drop for the Holidays Commented on: 39 weeks ago (October 27, 2014)

I will admit the value is better now than it was last year, but I certainly don't feel ripped off. I would have gotten the Kinect version anyway for Skype in the living room. Basically I would...

Here Comes the First Microsoft Lumia Handset Commented on: 40 weeks ago (October 24, 2014)

The first Microsoft phone will point to what direction they want to go. A Surface like phone with top end specs and terrific engineering (think VaporMG casing) will show they are serious about...
