If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em! That seems to be the stance Microsoft has been taking lately in its “mobile first, cloud first” approach since Satya Nadella took his post as CEO. Microsoft has released new and enhanced services across many platforms, such as...

There’s been a lot of hype around the Surface Pro 3 recently – and for good reason. The device is a beast (but an elegant beast, to be sure). What’s different about it from the Pro 2? Well it’s lighter, thinner, and more durable while sporting a larger screen, better...

Disney’s recent release brings hope to more amazing games to come, I originally found this game while browsing the Windows Phone Store, and have heard generally favorable mentions about this game on other platforms. So this isn’t anything new for people on IOS, but for Windows Phone...

Earlier last week the internet echo chamber exploded when it was inaccurately reported that Bill Gates was reluctant to sell off Microsoft’s Bing services, but reportably had no problem throwing Xbox under the bus. This comes at the same time you have entities writing that the Xbox...

Windows Phone 8.1 Preview is awesome, and we’re excited that the full version is almost here for everyone. There are some features in this preview, however, that could use some special additions. Here are some of my ideas for what would have been cool to include in the 8.1 preview: 1. Add a...

Creating a beautiful and functional start screen is surely the holy grail of any Windows Phone user. As a graphic designer and chronic pixel scrutiniser, its essential for me to have control over the way my device looks. I grew frustrated with Android for this reason originally, removing...

Internet Explorer 11...

Internet Explorer should no longer be the browser everyone hates.  Well, it looks like Microsoft’s hard work has paid off. The newest Internet Explorer isn’t only decent nowadays: it’s awesome. But how does it stack up against its competitors? First, answer this question:...

Change: @Zunited is out, @RedmondPost is in!

Hey Redmond Posters! Just a quick note… We have formally modified our twitter handle from @Zunited to @RedmondPost. This act effectively kills off the last bit of our presence still labeled “Zunited”. We built some great rapport around our Zunited name, and as with any change, it is difficult to re-adjust. As we look to make a future for this website, its reporting, and community; we realize the wider breadth of coverage we unlock with the Redmond Post name. http://www.twitter.com/redmondpost Please be sure to update your feeds and spread the word! Thanks. Jared Marino Owner/Manager, Redmond...
