  • Nadella talks of "tough choices" in new Microsoft employee memo [View news story]

    Thanks for putting this out about HoloLens. When I read that Microsoft isn't innovative (seen it mentioned several times in response to Seeking Alpha articles) , I have to chuckle after reading this article about NASA using the lens.

  • Microsoft Is Infecting Android Phones With Windows 10 OS [View article]

    Well I TOTALLY disagree with you regarding Win 8/8.1. It's worked great and the live tiles have been a great experience for me. I've never looked back to the old way of doing stuff.

  • Microsoft Broadens Its Horizons With Cortana [View article]
    "Ever tried Bing as a user?"

    You bet!!! Been using Bing for several years. I even did the Bing challenge that MS advertised back several years ago. My choices leaned heavily toward Bing. Never going back to Google. Don't see a need to anymore!!!

    "The problem is that there are only two people in North America with a Windows Phone"

    I guess they must both be living in my house. Oops.... there are three of us with WP! No, we are NOT thinking of switch to Android.

    Cortana is great! I especially like her on the MS Band.

  • Microsoft: Transformation To Cloud And Mobile Implies Strong Growth [View article]
    I'd have to agree with Ruffdog. I've been using all the Surface lines from RT, Pro and now the 3 with no issues. Also, upgraded from Win 8 to 8.1 without encountering issues. It was so simple. Curious what you upgraded from. I believe MS is doing all the right things. They are innovative in so many ways. So many think Apple is but they weren't the first with the MP or the phone.... they just are very good at marketing. While that makes them tons of money, let's give MS some credit, too.

    Having worked exclusively for the military for more years than I care to count, we used MS from day one and still do. Not sure where you got your info.

  • Apple Play Doing Roaring Business In China: A Positive Sign For Microsoft [View article]
    Well Microsoft stocks are up over $4 a share. Apple .40 cents. Guess we will have to wait until Monday. I'll just sit back and enjoy my MS Band while all you followers rush to buy the Apple Watch and shell out the big bucks.
    Go Microsoft!

  • Surface 3 And Apple Watch - Red Oceans Vs. Blue Oceans [View article]
    I've had my SP3 for almost a year with no problems. Have not had any reason to contact MS technical support for SP3. I have contacted them in the past a couple of times and I got excellent support. They called me back at exactly the time they said they would. I call that excellent support!

    Let me guess.... you've NEVER tried the SP3 have you????

  • The Microsoft Band Is Too Popular, Retailers Are Often Out Of Stock [View article]
    I just received my size small MS Band three days ago. I'm the third member of the family to get one. Two have had theirs since the day they launched and have had no problems whatsoever. Nothing bubbling, long battery life..2+ days and wear them all the time.

    I would recommend this band! At first it appears bulky but within a few hours I forgot I was wearing it. Last night was my first night wearing it while I slept. I was very curious to track my sleep patterns but wasn't sure I would find it comfortable enough to wear at night. No problems at all. Tracking sleep patterns is a real eye opener (pun intended) for me. The sheer convenience and usefulness of this device is amazing.

  • Microsoft: Putting Windows 10 Inside Android Phones Could Seriously Hurt Google [View article]

    Totally disagree with your perception of "ugly" tiles. Love the different sizes AND that makes them easier to use for some of us. Those tiny apps on iphones and Androids have no appeal for me. Also, hate how many apps I see people scrolling through.... waste of time IMO and too much clutter on the phone.

  • Microsoft Continues To Focus On Lower ASP Smartphones [View article]

    Out of curiosity, which WP are you using? My husband and I both have WP's but different brands. We both had a third-party app installed on our phones. My app quit working and it wouldn't allow me to log into my account at the site. I could get on the website just not my account. I can log in using my Surface just fine. My husband has no problem with his app on his phone. FYI my phone is a Lumia 929 and his is the HTC.

  • Inside Microsoft Gaming's Excellent November [View article]
    Your experience with has been a complete opposite of my previous experiences. Had no problem ordering a SP3. Got immediate email confirmation.

    I've also been completely happy when visiting a MS store in person. Immediately helped, questions answered.... no problems encountered.

    I have had a few occasions to call MS Customer Service, also. No issues there either. I actually found them extremely helpful.
