Windows Phone 7.8 and Feelings Jun20

Windows Phone 7.8 an...

So the news is out. Windows Phone users of current generation devices will be unable to upgrade to Windows Phone 8, a.k.a. Apollo. The collective sigh of frustration from many tech savvy, early adopters after the announcement was made at Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 conference today was...

Can Microsoft’s Xbox Team create a Smash Bros. Clone? Jun14

Can Microsoft’...

Microsoft has been highly criticized for the lack of games being developed for the Xbox 360. Sure, this year’s E3 had a lack of exciting games besides Halo 4 (which, by the way looks like an entirely new game. That’s a good thing.) Among the top hits such as Halo 4, Forza, Gears of...

Ghost Recon Future Soldier Multiplayer Experience Apr24

Ghost Recon Future S...

The Beta The Ghost Recon Future Soldier Beta has started and has left us impressed with the game. Having played the beta multiplayer for about a week, I got a feeling that Ubisoft has another hit in their hands with the third-person-shooter Ghost Recon: Future Soldier. In the...

Will Windows Phone 7...

There has been a huge debate lately on the possibility of current generation devices for Windows Phone receiving and updating to the Windows Phone 8 OS, aka Apollo. Without a peep from Microsoft about this issue, speculation has run rampant after Paul Thurrott vehemently stated via a...

Microsoft Creating a...

Microsoft is breaking out of its old, bland persona it used to have. Microsoft is actually looking pretty good, especially in comparison to its competitors. What? Don’t believe me? Well, while Apple and Google are caught up in their privacy issues and everything else they’re...

Where Apple was “Inspired” by Microsoft Mar16

Where Apple was R...

As some of you may know, some Apple fanboys think that all Microsoft does is copy Apple. Surely you know somebody who has that mindset, whether it’s a friend, co-worker, or maybe even a family member. It’s time we point out some of the moves Apple made that provides evidence that...

Nokia Lumia 900 Rumo...

Yesterday, out of the web pages of BGR.com came news of the delay of Nokia’s flagship device, the Lumia 900. Many enthusiasts, inspired Microsoft geeks and tech junkies were eagerly anticipating the arrival of the smartphone that so overwhelmingly took CES by storm. What many viewed as...

Will Sony Make A Win...

Will Sony make a Windows Phone? That is the big rumor that has been going around lately. Various new sites speculated that Sony would reveal a Windows Phone at MWC, but that did not happen. Instead, Sony revealed a couple of Android phones and went on to talk about its features. Even though...

What’s New in ...

  There is no doubt that Windows 8 will be great on new tablets and touch based computers, but what about the average user who already owns a normal PC and will face the decision of whether to upgrade or not. A lot of emphasis has been placed on touch interfaces in Windows 8 which leaves...

Survey Says… W...

Joe Wilcox of betanews asked readers “Are You Bored with Your Windows Phone?” in an article last week. The readers responded with a resounding “No.” Joe explains that he had heard a few comments about Windows Phone users getting bored and since the UI is very similar to what will...

Even the greatest ge...

I love my Windows Phone (as is evident by all my gushing in previous posts) and I really think the Windows Mango OS is beautiful, fast, and cool. My phone of choice to enjoy Mango is the HTC Radar from T-Mobile; a thin, compact, speedy phone all contained in a slick metal body. The specs may...

I’m a TwitR...

…a MetroTwit that is. We spend so much time on our mobile devices, often we neglect the need for really good native Windows apps. This is especially the case for Twitter. Like most people, I use the Twitter website which, for all intents and purposes, serves my needs. But then again...

I Have “App AD...

I have “app ADD.” What this means is I can never firmly choose which apps I wish to have permanently installed on my Windows Phone. You see friends, I am addicted to finding and trying new apps, deciding those new apps are better than my old apps and subsequently uninstalling my old apps...

MWC, The Lumia 900 &...

The Lumia 900 was the darling of CES. It wasn’t just a darling, it gave Windows Phone the proverbial shot in the arm that the languishing OS needed. With its introduction at the Las Vegas trade show, the people salivating over its polycarbonate, single piece engineering probably would...

I, Windows Phone Feb08

I, Windows Phone

In 2009, the unthinkable happened to me. I went stupid and actively chose to spend $500+ on a new and strange cell phone called the G1. It was sometimes also known by its nom de plume, the “Google Phone.” This “Google Phone,” apparently, had such marvelous integration between Google...

An Argument for the Budget Carriers Feb01

An Argument for the ...

There is an argument to be made to cater to the budget conscious. As a platform, Windows Phone 7.5 has almost eschewed that silent portion of the population where contracts, monthly bills and premium phones don’t equate to a choice that would be economically viable for them....

Is a Front Facing Ca...

When the Nokia Lumia 800 was first announced, it was met with both excitement and disappointment. The Lumia 800 had it all. It had the looks and the software, but it lacked something that is believed to be standard on a high end phone – a front facing camera. Because the Lumia 800 was...

The Kinect Effect

The software giant Microsoft will be releasing a Kinect add-on for Windows on February 1st, 2012. What is interesting about this release is the fact that it is not targeting Xbox gamers or PC gamers but developers themselves. On it’s release the Kinect sold over one million units,...

Why You Should Give Bing A Second Chance Jan23

Why You Should Give ...

I know what you’re already thinking. You’re probably thinking to yourself, “No way! I hate Bing!” Now, I understand Bing did start off a bit rough, but it has changed a lot since Bing’s debut. If you still think you prefer Google over any other search engine, I...

Zune: Standing the T...

The Zune HD has seen many names. In the past it was known as the iPod killer, but now, it is commonly described as dead. While it may be dead to its creator, it is not dead to many people and most likely wont die for a long time. For many of us, we have grown out of the mp3 players of old and...

Sprint to sell iPhone 5 in October: What that means for Windows Phone Aug23

Sprint to sell iPhon...

“Sprint to land Apple’s iPhone” When I read this headline on ZDnet.com my first reaction was a negative one. The impulse of dread that another of the top four U.S. carriers was now in the fold of the iPhone 4 or 5’s release window this year dampened my positive outlook...

Consumers are first ...

Remember the good ole days when our smart phones weren’t so smart? Not so long ago, wanting your phone to run multiple applications at once was a laughable request, but nowadays this is approaching the norm. With the passing of time, more and more of our phones and other handheld devices...

In the throes of death, Zune HD shows life Jul03

In the throes of dea...

As talks of the Zune’s demise went from whispers to nothing short of shouting, Zune users everywhere held their collective breaths as we anticipated a very impromptu funeral for our beloved device. The talks of its death or rebranding subsided after the Mango announcement where the Zune...

Windows Phone Mango, the latest version to the mobile operating system, has been gaining good press and traction ever since its announcement almost a month ago. The media has summed up Mango as an update worthy of making Windows Phone feel complete, even if it’s not due for about a year...

Nextbox Vs. Wii U Jun13

Nextbox Vs. Wii U

Nintendo seemed to capture most of the spotlight at E3 this year with the introduction of their Wii U system. Nintendo kicked off the beginning of the next generation of gaming with their new console, much earlier before any leaks or revealing of any data on the future of Playstation and Xbox....
