    Being able to modify anything in Windows Phone isn't really something easy, but then again, that doesn't apply to the lock screen. You have some really cool options provided by the Microsoft Weather app, Facebook and even the current Beta of Instagram. In that same fashion, there are third party apps that can take the ...

    Microsoft hasn't found the amount of success it wanted to see in mobile. Windows Phone is still just 3% of the mobile market, and even with its moves in acquiring Nokia's mobile division, the company is still struggling to re-invent itself internally. You could assume that Microsoft's interests in Android are low, given ...

    The final release of Windows 10 is still months and months away, but Microsoft is happy to give users eager for a preview an early look at the operating system. The PC preview has been out for a while now, and for the past few weeks we've been anticipating the start of a similar preview for phones. Earlier this month ...

    One of the unavoidable pitfalls of covering a field as vast as mobile technology is that sometimes, you get things wrong. It happens regardless of preparation, regardless of time spent with a device, and no matter how many colleagues help copy-edit your work. But it happens most often when you establish an opinion ...

    Microsoft had some big announcements last week. Announcements that left your head spinning, once you took Marty McFly Jr’s headset off that is. Microsoft even let the phones get into the picture, which was pretty cool. But it left me wondering if Microsoft shared any truly compelling reasons for people to come to the ...

    Before Microsoft took over Nokia's mobile division, we spent a good amount of time praising the the once cellphone giant for its efforts with the Lumia smartphone lineup. The Lumia designs were both bold and futuristic, but what really stood these smartphones apart from the competition is the enhanced camera experience ...

    The issue of app availability across platforms found itself in the news again last week, as BlackBerry CEO John Chen made a (by many accounts misguided) plea in the name of net neutrality to legally force developers and content providers to bring their work to his platform. We discussed the issue at some length on the ...

    Microsoft sure does like to change the way things are named!

Windows Phone came along when Microsoft rebooted the platform in the wake of competition from Apple and ...

    With all Microsoft had to show at last week's Windows 10 event – from HoloLens to Spartan, not to mention what the new OS will mean for the company's smartphones – there are plenty of good reasons to be excited for what Microsoft's doing next. But before we start focusing too much on the future, it's time for ...

We haven't really seen Microsoft's Spartan browser compared to others, but the features shown off at the event were cool enough to have us excited. We all thought the browser would simply be named "Microsoft ...

One other little nugget that Microsoft dropped on us was that new flagship hardware was coming.  There were few real details about from whom, or when. It ...

    Microsoft sure had a lot to share at yesterday's Windows 10 event, including both new hardware and software. On the hardware front, the HoloLens was easily the flashier of those new offerings, but we also got to see Microsoft's new collaborative wall-mounted slate, the Surface Hub. We heard about how easy it would be to ...
