Bas Bas It finds lightbulbs.
  • Are you on Windows 10? Are you experiencing slow installs? Here's the deal...

    Well, I'm convinced.

  • I got the Microsoft Phone Display Doc!

    It's a good idea, but in reality would the type of person that wants to use this be traveling without a laptop?

    If I could commute everywhere without my laptop, I would do so in a heartbeat.

  • The should I give up my windows phone question

    , cbae wrote

    The most annoying thing about Windows Store apps is that no text, apart from what is rendered inside an editable control, is selectable (and copiable).

    Right-click on any file in Explorer, and you can still highlight and copy the property values of the given file even though the text is readonly.

    Granted, the use cases for the copiability of the file property values are limited, but consider what you're unable to do when you're, say, looking at the description of an app listed in the Windows Store using the Windows Store app. Go to any title, and then try to select and copy the description of the app. You're unable to.

    Let's say you wanted to report the app to Microsoft or contact the author and needed to reference the description. You'd have to manually type it. This is one the main reasons why I can't stand using any Windows Store apps other than games.

    Ha, this has been my major annoyance as well. I'm glad I'm not alone.

  • Free Developer Offers :-)

    Wait, why does it say the pluralsight offer is a six-month subscription, when further down on the page it says it's only four months? Still four months, but still, where did the six months come from?

    Edit: well, it says it expires on may 19th, so I guess that's six months after all. Also, it doesn't auto-renew, awesome!

  • Status on Project Astoria

    Apparently the similar project for iOS is going far better than Astoria ever was. Seeing how most stuff is available for iOS and Android anyway, maybe one of the two projects was superfluous so they ditched the most difficult one?

  • Onedrive... are they serious?

    I'm mainly seeing how Microsoft can't deliver on its cloud promises, and can only deliver something that's decidedly worse than the competition. If they had ditched the "unlimited" plan and capped it at 1TB, fine, but 5GB is just laughable. Did nobody there think to grab a list of what Dropbox, Google etc. are offering and do a side-by-side comparison with their proposed plans? Who is making these decisions, and how?

  • Onedrive... are they serious?

    Aren't they ditching all extra's, like the camera storage and the early adopters bonus, leaving everyone who doesn't pay with 5GB? This is a great way to make your service look incredibly worse than Google Drive. Good job!

  • Cortana is doing that Clippy thing

    , Proton2 wrote

    Cortana still not available in my country Canada.

    Same here. It's kind of annoying that all kinds of upcoming new features (texting, missed calls etc. via your pc) are all tied to Cortana for some seemingly nonsense reason, and as such might as well not exist.

  • October 6th ​Announcemen​ts

    I wish I could afford the Surface Book because I could just play with that bizarre hinge thing all day long.

  • October 6th ​Announcemen​ts

    That guy with the hat. I just... I wanted the phone less and long the longer I had to stare at that hat.
