How quickly the communal knowledge of this show's history fades!
I'm a periodic thorn in Laura's side; the original mastermind of Boys without Foys; former Microsoft-ie; incorrect user of semi-colons; maker of fail sound sites like this one; and much, much more (not really that much more).
At least you could pronounce Nokia correctly

To fix the Skype issue, could you just position the picture of the person you are calling at the top below the camera so it looks like you are looking at them?
Got my Xbox One pre-order in the day it became available. Picking up Forza 5, RYSE, Watch Dogs and possible Dead Rising 3 from the Launch list. Titanfall and The Division when they arrive.
EDIT: The free FIFA 14 is only for European folks (like me) who have a Day One edition. They really should have had a similar deal in the US, though I'd happily swap that for Madden.
EDIT 2: NFL Fantasy football app is also on the 360, you just log in with your fantasy football account and everything is there. It is on the Surface too
I kind of liked the MS points, but alas they are no more.
Windows 8.1 is a good update to W8 and adds some nice features and tweaks that are much needed. The Start button really doesn't do anything though other than make the "hot corner" more visible so I am sure a lot of people won't be happy still. I'm really enjoying the tweaks.
Well as I hate 3D films, I'm not sure I am looking forward to 3D Skype.
Ping 185: Xbox One launch titles, Bing in schools, Windows Phone unlocks your car, Delta gets Windows PhonesAug 28, 2013 at 4:32AM
Just to clarify Mark, not everyone can earn Bing rewards points, it is only available to you 'mericans!
The GM phone app is pretty cool, but now if you lose your phone you lose your car as well :/

@JustinMSalvato: Oh come on, if you were a frequent watcher you would know where he is.
Loving that old dude painting, he should be showing this off somewhere in a gallery.
I really like the Lumia 920 I have, but I sure want a 1020 now.
@ponsaelius: The NSA only gets access to specific information that they have a legal order to obtain. Google, Facebook, Apple etc. all do the same as Microsoft, it seems ridiculous to single out one company for your complaint when they have all done it or does that not sit well with your foil hat?
Who doesn't love LEGO (though there isn't an S on the end, sounds very wrong when you say LEGOS)
I'm not personally worried about the spying issue with Kinect, I know that is isn't recording everything I do at home and sending it anywhere.
Personally the DRM "issues" with the X1 didn't bother me and I was looking forward to the other features it brought in like the family library and re-selling/gifting of digital games but sadly that has been dropped. Hopefully it will come back later.
Nice to have a new face on the show welcome Mark.
