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

The problem I see is that Microsoft keeps having exclusives with carriers. I'm on AT&T and if I want a flagship phone my choices are the 1520 (too big) or the 1020 (now over a year old). The...

Nokia Lumia 635: First Impressions and Photos Commented on: 5 weeks ago (July 17, 2014)

How much more usable space is on the screen vs. the 520? It almost looks like the entire 1/2 inch larger size is dedicated to the software buttons. The actual content area displayed on the two...

Surface Pro 3: The Mobile Office Commented on: 11 weeks ago (June 6, 2014)

Hey Paul, re: the fan kicking in differently. The advanced power settings have options for "On battery" and "Plugged in". The default for on battery is passive which has the system throttle the...

Surface Mini on Tap for a May Release Commented on: 17 weeks ago (April 24, 2014)

The touch-first Office apps are a must-have for this device. With so much fanfare given to the iPad Office apps last month it would be suicide for Microsoft to release the Surface Mini without...

Office Online Improves with Tons of New Features Commented on: 18 weeks ago (April 16, 2014)

I don't see them releasing an offline version of the web apps. The iPad (and very likely Android) office application requires an Office 365 subscription to activate editing features. Making an...

Windows 8.1 Update 1 Arrives Commented on: 19 weeks ago (April 8, 2014)

The space saving benefits will only apply to new devices on which 8.1 Update 1 is preinstalled. If you are updating from either 8.0 or 8.1 you won't see any decrease in the OS footprint.

Microsoft Office for iPad Review Commented on: 21 weeks ago (March 28, 2014)

I think Microsoft has done a very good job with this release. While I won't be using the iPad version for my main productive work, having it on hand at all times will allow me to do a lot more...

Windows Weekly 346: Halfway to Metro Commented on: 30 weeks ago (January 23, 2014)

Maybe not the place to ask, but do you have any idea why the TWiT live feeds won't play on the Xbox One but will work fine on Metro IE on my Windows 8.1 computers? I thought they were the same...

Windows Weekly 341: Hunt the Wumpus Commented on: 35 weeks ago (December 20, 2013)

Paul. Maybe I misheard you regarding the native Twitter client and refreshing the new messages. I check Twitter every couple of days and if I hit the button that looks like a house it takes me...

Microsoft Pulls Surface Pro 2 Firmware Update Commented on: 35 weeks ago (December 18, 2013)

I installed the update as soon as it came out hoping they had fixed the Bluetooth issues with the Wedge mouse. No change with that problem, but I noticed the Surface would not go into sleep mode...
