Some of my favourite...

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...

Xbox Music gets a Pl...

Something very interesting has come to our attention after playing with the free music streaming service known as Xbox Music. Apparently the free streaming service is not making Microsoft enough revenue because a play limit has been placed blocking users from playing a song after a certain...

Surface Pro Breakdow...

The Surface Pro has finally been priced at $899 for a 64 Gb model and $999 for a 128 Gb model, and a lot of talk, both positive and negative, has been made about the price. The problem with most of the price analyses I’ve read is that they are considering the Surface Pro to be a slate or...

Alpha Jax Gets the X...

If you have been a Windows Phone faithful since its introduction in 2010, you no doubt have seen or played the excellent Scrabble-like game Alpha Jax. The word-making game has been one of the few jewels from that early era. And now, coming this Wednesday as part of Microsoft’s weekly...

Microsoft’s Me...

Microsoft will no longer use the word “metro” to describe the live tile UI that it has been using for years now, since the Zune HD. This is a big hit to the companies branding as both windows 8 and windows RT have had their interfaces referred to as metro. Microsoft is...

Windows Phone 8 Live...

Go to your Xbox360, log onto Xbox Live, and go to the bottom right hand corner of the first tile cluster and what do you see? An advertising live tile. A live tile whose sole purpose is to take up space and make money for people who profit from advertising. Seems like a good idea right? Well...

The iPad Mini Defies...

As windows users, we often sit on the sidelines and giggle at the Apple fanboys who stand in line for hours to pay full price for a new product that only hosts a miniscule amount of new features. Many people would find it more convenient if the money that they spend on apple products were...

The Surface announcement has caused quite a stir in the tech comunity. Consumer opinions so far have been very favorable, while industry leaders are a bit scheptical. Mac fanboys have flocked to twitter to poke fun at the young device, but their confidence that it will not be competitive...

Today comes the end of an era as the Windows Mobile 6.x marketplace will go offline once and for all. Those of you still carrying the HTC HD2 and other Windows Mobile smartphones will no longer have access to that marketplace. Of course, whatever you have on hand on your device will keep on...

Microsoft Goes so.cl

Microsoft Research has released its very own social network simply labeled So.cl. So.cl was leaked a few months ago under the codename Tulalip, a Native American tribe in the Seattle area. It was rumored to be a site in which students would be able to easily share and collaborate in projects,...

App Showcase: Zenobi...

When I was a little kid, one of the most memorable gaming experiences I ever had was with a game called Blaster Master. For the pitiful uninitiated (meaning too young to know), the game gave you a tank that could scale walls, fly in the air and shoot things. Yet, its most appealing foundation...

Half a decade later:...

In the summer of 2006, I remember seeing something online about Microsoft’s new product — the Zune. It was in a time when I had never owned a portable media player before, when it seemed everyone and… ahem… his or her (mechanics!) mother had one (and I’m not just saying that because...
