    Sure of course, there are a lot of things they could do, like make the date font slightly smaller than the time font, or change the spacing between the two lines.

    The display format also needs to be easier to change, rather than going through several dialogue windows IMO, and probably with a different default format for the date. For example, I think more people would be interested in the day of the week and or a more friendly month name than a year string, since most people know what year it is.

    Also make it easier to switch between primary and secondary clocks, like if you're on vacation.

    Hmmm.... I will avoid talking about the Settings Dialog, because that wasn't part of the discussion.

    As for 1/21/2015, I like it this way. I don't want my PC telling my it is Jan 21 and have it set to 2000. That would be terrible. And just FYI, 1/21/2015 is so much easier to read than some strange Jan/Feb, blah. Not everyone living in USA is born in USA. And internationally, the words are a mess. Numbers are the universal. Just need to be careful with formatting of the local culture. I don't need to understand the language, just the ordering. That's is way easier than trying to translate the local language.

    My point being, TASKBARRRRRR..... that's it. And it is clear Win10 gets it. When they do metro snap, TASKBARRRR is there, even in tablet mode.

    They could always make the W8-style time display come up. :> The taskbar time format really should be revamped btw. It really feels old to me, I think they could do a nicer job.

    Any other place other than taskbar I can see time without doing anything except moving my eye?

    For what reason though?

    With the flyouts, if you clicked anywhere outside the flyout space, it would close, it would be gone, and there would be no issues. When the Start Screen was full screen, most of your activity was going in, scrolling and clicking on the app, and then you were out.

    I found this worked very well and never had problems with it. I don't know... I find some of the dislikes about covering the taskbar a bit overly finicky.

    The taskbar doesn't create an impact on the Action Center, it just is a lot less elegant IMO.

    I want to see my time when the action center is up.

    * The Action/Notifications popup would look a lot better if it worked more like the W8 style flyouts and overlayed the taskbar. What looks pretty bad is that its sitting on top of the taskbar. It feels awkward.

    I am the advocator of TASKBARRRRRR. Thus, it should never be covered unless I am playing full screen games. Especially showing the taskbar with action center makes really little impact to the action center while still able to show time, switch apps without action center being obstructive to others.

    watching Cortana early build. I think they should remove the textbox from the taskbar. Just show two icons, an icon for text and another icon for speech. And when you do either button, a textbox will popup like start menu.

    Hmmmm..... I will just remember that your comment about police applicants is purely subjective and personal as you have zero proof of your statement.

  • New Lumia camera app?


    I just want that new camera app. So, either one is totally fine by me. I heard 930 already got it. Lucky lucky.

  • New Lumia camera app?

    Anyone knows when we will be able to get the new Lumia camera app, on 1520?

    It is said to have dynamic HDR and load much faster.
