  • Motorola signs patent licensing deal with Microsoft

    Happy happy. Mean while the battle between Apple and Samsung goes on, completely different industry of course.

  • do you think there is any new Lumia model for AT&T?

    You do know that the phone cost is built into the service rates, right?

    A T-Mobile Lumia 925 is $220 on Newegg right now. 1GB 4G data (throttled afterwards) is $50/month + $10 for a SIM card. So over two years, you've spent $1430.

    A Verizon Lumia 928 with 2GB 4G data with a hard cutoff is $90/month for two years + $0.99 for the phone. Over two years, that's $2160.99.

    It is impossible to tell my parent to switch. So, I am paying 10 bucks for the call, 25 bucks for the data, and 20 bucks for unlimited text for the entire family.

    I am thinking of the family plan. I ran out of 2GB too quickly.

  • Siri, Google Now and Cortana and the 4 passover questions

    Educational about the Passover for me. And Cortana and Bing is smarter than me apparently :). Glad to see Cortana is doing better than the competition.

    I have something to check. The list could be generated from the full Apps listing filtered by category marked as Games. My full Apps list contains 150 - 200 Apps only. How about yours?


    I have 182 apps in total exactly.
    The problem is not why it filter so slow. The problem is, after it filtered it and I closed the Xbox Game app, it will rescan and filter it again. In the old days, it is instant. It could be because the storage only store games, so no filtering before. Or it was able to register the App List Modified event. Since Music is far more complex and also instant, I think it is more like the cache was notified and updated when a new game or song is added. And for some odd reason the new game/music app keeps rescan instead of doing the old ways.

  • my WinPh Halo doesn't work on Win8.

    I saw the ads on XboxOne that Halo Assault is buy one and get it on both WinPh and Win8. I bought it on WinPh8 around game release. But, I couldn't download the Win8 version without additional charge. Is this only for new buyers?

    @magicalclick:It take around 1 second to load. While slower than before, not quite unacceptable. (My list have about 50 games in it)

    Something is wrong with mine then. It always takes a long time to search the games in my phone. Same with Xbox Music. My sure you closed the app first.

    I know it is there, that's why I said it keeps reloading and slow.

    I've just decided that I'm tired of giving the carriers so much of my money. I'm not broke, I just like to save money on certain things so that I can have more resources for fun stuff.

    Ok. So, let me know what you switch to. It would be worth considering for myself as well.
