New Intel Chipsets Spur Hope for Windows 8 Surge in 2013 Commented on: 1 year ago (January 8, 2013)

late 2013... Waiting will be tough. My laptop was due to be replaced last year (FYI, placing a dead laptop video card in the oven DOES revive it! On it's 5th life now.)

Windows 8 Feature Focus: Xbox Video App Commented on: 1 year ago (January 7, 2013)

My experience with Xbox Video hasn't been as positive. Due to a hatred of "MS Points", I tried to rent a video through Windows 8, with the intention to use the "Play on Xbox" feature to get it to...

Xbox Music Feature Focus: Play on Xbox Commented on: 1 year ago (January 4, 2013)
