MapPoint and Streets & Trips Step Aside for Bing Maps Commented on: 10 weeks ago (July 7, 2014)

I used to assist with a complex mapping/demographics application in 2000. It sounds untenable by today's standards, really--they shipped about 20-30 update CDs at least monthly to keep the maps...

One Year of Lumia 1020 Commented on: 10 weeks ago (July 6, 2014)

Very interesting that you find the 1020 has lousy low light performance. I've always thought that one of the best points about the 920 is the low light performance (brighter than the naked eye in...

Start Menu Will Replace Start Screen in Threshold Commented on: 10 weeks ago (July 1, 2014)

Seriously... it's an app-launcher. We've had the same basic functionality since Windows... 1? Much, much more could be done to make the everyday computing experience more useful, but instead we...

Availability Update: Surface Pro 3 i3/i7 Models and Surface Pro 3 Dock Commented on: 12 weeks ago (June 20, 2014)

Microsoft Launches IE Developer Channel Commented on: 13 weeks ago (June 16, 2014)

Update 1 Becomes Mandatory on Windows 8.1 Today Commented on: 13 weeks ago (June 10, 2014)

I have not been able to install this update via Windows Update on any machine so far--every install has been manual, including on fresh installs of 8.1. Reading the forums, I'm apparently not...

Surface Pro 3: Pen Primer Commented on: 15 weeks ago (May 28, 2014)

I think Panay did not explain parallax well, confusing it at times with latency. Parallax describes the physical distance (not time) between the tip of the pen and where the "ink" actually...

Surface Pro 3: Hardware Expansion Commented on: 16 weeks ago (May 22, 2014)

Thank you for filling in some details about the dock. Do you know if it will support multimon (at least dual monitors)?

Surface Pro 3: Surface Pro Type Cover Commented on: 16 weeks ago (May 21, 2014)

Eye-watering price. They had better offer some great bundles.
