Standalone Xbox One Kinect Coming in October Commented on: 9 weeks ago (August 27, 2014)

"It features 5 megapixel cameras, front and back, which is a bizarrely out-of-date unit"

I was curious about this as well when trying one at the store, and the answer is a qualified yes: you can do it with one hand, but it is somewhat tricky (although I'm sure it would be easier with...

Surface Pro 3: Balancing Power, Price ... And Heat? Commented on: 12 weeks ago (August 4, 2014)

Angry dustbuster... haha! I've been laughing about that analogy all day today.
