Updated Windows RT on the Surface 2 – Slowly Catching Up To Become A Real Tablet

But not quite there yet. Microsoft’s Surface 2, selling for $449, is a much needed hardware and software improvement over its predecessor. However, it’s still in an awkward limbo between a tablet and a PC. On one hand, it wants to be a tablet because it runs RT, the diet version of Windows 8.1, but




Windows 8 Update (8.1) – Features More Metro, Less Desktop

Microsoft wants to steer us away from the familiar Windows 7-style Desktop interface with the Windows 8 update, called Windows 8.1. Details from a leaked video preview, found a couple weeks ago by The Verge, suggest Microsoft plans to do so by improving the Metro interface.* Die-hard Desktop fans, lay down your pitchforks and extinguish




Windows Phone 8 – for iPhone users who want a larger screen

I love Windows Phone 8. It reminded me of when I picked up a 1st generation iPod Touch when it was first released (before iPhone!) and how intuitively easy it was to become familiar with iOS (1.0?). WP8 seems to lean towards users who don’t really care so much about customization and love intuitive functionality. It




Your Windows PC Is A Compulsive Hoarder – 2 Super Quick Tips To Cure It

Your computer is a compulsive hoarder and its house looks like this: All those boxes in the picture represent a bunch of files and folders (which we’ll call “crap” from now on) that you never see or use and that your computer never uses either. But for one demented reason or the other, your computer




The Tabtop Revolution

I am really liking these hybrid tabtops/laplets that are emerging. Namely those that have keyboard covers/docks like the HP TouchPad 2, Lenovo ThinkPad 2. I really wouldn’t be surprised if these hybrids become a new norm to replace the traditional laptops, at least for Windows hardware. The only thing that is limiting the growth of these hybrids is getting




Skype on Surface RT – So Buggy It Gets a Blog Post

There are bugs. Lots of them. Most notably whilst using the Skype app. People I’m speaking with sometimes turn green, but I don’t tell them to avoid confusion and hang-ups and continue talking to the green person. Sometimes my video will freeze and plays a 1 second loop of my head bobbing or nodding or




Microsoft Surface – If You Have One, You Know What I Mean

Since receiving my Microsoft Surface a couple weeks ago, I have had many thoughts regarding its pluses and minuses. I think it would be fitting to write this organization of thoughts on the Surface itself using the touch cover, and that’s what I’ll begin with. LOVE it. Love the touch cover. It’s a screen cover




Who Dunnit? Nokia and the Elusive Lumia 920 Contract

Disappointment. The 920 will be an AT&T exclusive. Everyone who has even vaguely been keeping up with the Lumia 920 madness has been looking forward to its release. No, I don’t care about the 820 or Nokia’s other variants in its 8 series; its screen isn’t large enough. Various sources state that both AT&T and
