Windows Phone 8.1: Like WinPho 8, but BETTER

Laurent Cargill

Re: Incorrect

Yes it is cheaper, as anyone making an Android phone has to pay a patent license to Microsoft.

Stop

Re: Azure down for a week whilst we renew our PKI Certs.

James, it would be nice to hear some better reasoned arguments as opposed to your simplistic put-downs.

You may find that it garners a little more respect from your fellow Reg readers.

Re: For a safer, faster, better experience online you should upgrade your browser.

Same message with IE9 and IE10

Can the developers only support a Webkit browser?

Re: "Microsoft makes it easy for you to add more storage space"

.....or you can just setup a junction point from a folder on the C: to your SD card and add the local folder to your Library.....et voila.....

Windows 8: Never mind Office, it's for GAMING

Laurent Cargill

Where's the XNA?

Then why drop XNA? In one swoop they've removed a bunch of developers who could have brought their games over to Windows 8.

Microsoft: It was never 'Metro,' it was always 'Modern UI'

Laurent Cargill
WTF?

Rock and hard place.

All this criticism of the new UI. But what choice does MS have? Touch is the current big advance in UI, can anyone say for certain that in 5 years there won't be more tablet devices than desktops? MS has to do something to counter the rise of the ipad, but no one seems to be presenting a better idea, just criticism of their approach. Yes, merging a desktop OS with a mobile UI might not be the greatest solution, but how else is MS to incorporate touch into it's OS?
