Windows 10 will decide fate of Windows Phone

I would think that Windows 10 will either be the saving grace or the final nail in the coffin for Windows Phone.

If Universal Apps take off, there wont be any excuse not to develop for Windows anymore. 1 billion prospective users is something you don’t simply shrug off and not care about. It’ll be a rude awakening for app developers. This is dependent on Win10′s pricing models and everything though, if its poorly executed then there’s not much of a point.

Why I hate coding Metro applications even though I love Windows 8

The apps load in full screen. The simple fact (for me at least) is that for most of those apps, I either plan to use them for 30 seconds and then close them again, or I want to leave them open to quickly check, but don’t like them taking up a full screen. This is less of an issue for me than it probably is for others, since I have two screens and can just leave an app open on the second screen if I want. However it is still an issue – and one which Windows 10 fixes. The ability to have Metro apps resized should make a huge difference in how much they’re used.

Similarities and Differences in Laptop Repair Costs

Many consumers prefer portable computers such as tablets and notebooks, otherwise known as laptops. While they are lightweight and far more versatile than a PC that sits on a desk, they are more fragile and often more expensive to repair. This is the inherent problem of fine technology: Components are either solidly attached or are manufactured only for a specific line of computers.

Why Samsung won in the last in Apple-Samsung lawsuit battle?

It seems like a win for Samsung. The only people making a killing during these lawsuits have been the lawyers on both sides. Apple’s fight has been around principles – not about money. A billion dollars here or there is not going to affect Apple’s massive coffers really.

Why you should not buy cheap Android phones?

Most of Android phones, except Oplus and ASUS, are providing 4 GB storage. Usable which user gets its hardly 1 to 1.5 GB. Apps like FB and WhatsApp aren’t moveable to SD card. So install this app and gone – either you cannot update apps in future or install apps and low memory prompts. (I have experienced this in my HTC Explorer, which had really very low memory, and my friend using Xperia C is also facing same.)
