I hate Galaxy Note 7: Reasons not to buy Samsung Note 7

Here are the reasons why I am not going to buy a Samsung Galaxy Note 7. I’m feeling really underwhelmed with this one. That battery is irritatingly small, though, and of course, you can’t just replace or upgrade it. One of the perks of a removable battery is that you can slap some 10,000mAh+ monstrosity in there, if you don’t mind the added thickness – it’s your decision to make.

Windows 10 Mobile with x86 CPU can beat iPhone and Android

The HP Elite X3’s greatest innovation is HP Workspace, but that is simply a work around for the x86 app issue, and from reports is somewhat laggy and bandwidth dependent. Having a native x86 processor would make it a much more acceptable device. It’s time for Microsoft to kill Windows Mobile and give me a device that runs Windows 10. They can limit the ability to run win32 applications when not connected to a larger screen and they can use the Windows Mobile Interface when in phone mode. No need to call it a phone, time to go futuristic, should call it the Surface Communicator and pay the makers or Star Trek a boat load of money to introduce it in the next Star Trek film. To deal with battery life they can keep the screen res to 1920×1080 and instead of giving me a keyboard cover attachment, give me a battery cover attachment. This way if i want more battery life I can get the attachment that doubles as a cover.

Reasons for Microsoft not reaching 1 billion devices by 2018

1. They have to blame themselves. The decision to stop selling Lumias in Brazil was theirs. If I am not wrong, Brazil was the second or third country that sold more Lumias. They did the same with other countries, and released Lumia 550, Lumia 650 and the Lumia 950, but they left a hole in the middle of this family without a mid end like Lumia 830 or a little better than this. They wanted to help their partners, but their partners are not present in every country affected by their decision.

Updating Your Device Drivers Regularly

Drivers are basically software programs which let your computer OS give instructions to hardware or software associated with your PC. From hardware devices like webcams, software applications, printers, games, and even common programs like Excel or Word, you should always have the latest, up to date drivers for your PC.

HP Elite X3 Lapdock vs Lumia Continuum setup

I am very interested in this HP Elite X3 Lapdock setup. Running a Lumia 950 daily and a 950XL on insider. The UWP Continuum landscape just keeps getting better. I am a little put of by the weight of the lapdock if it is indeed a kilo (2.2lbs). That’s a bit heavier than I’d like, but I need to consider it is also my external battery for my phone, along with all that sign in convenience you reference. Are they really ‘advertising’ IP67? That second number, 7, indicates Liquid ingress protection: Immersion, up to 1 m depth, Test duration: 30 minutes. That would certainly imply surviving dropping in the toilet. For an $800 phone, you bet I’m reaching in if I think it will survive.

iOS10 on iPhone 6s review

Well first of all for a (first) beta I find this release really stable. Haven’t experienced any weird things going on yet. I’m running this beta on my iPhone 6S Plus, which is also my daily driver. I absolutely love the new raise to wake function. I can quickly look at my phone, screen turns on. Great! On the lockscreen it annoys me a bit that I have to press home to unlock. I didn’t have to slide to unlock in iOS9, why do I have to press it in iOS10 instead of just letting it scan my finger and go?

Developing UWP apps for Windows 10 Mobile is confusing

I’m in the middle of developing a client app for an open source project. It’s a UWP, available for desktop and mobile. I have no idea how to go about designing the UI for it. Everything I know from WP7/8 is gone. I can’t take cues from any native apps, because each one is different. It’s a disaster. So I have a pretty terrible UI.

Capcom adds story mode to Street Fighter V

It doesn’t change the fact that all this stuff should have been in the game to begin with. Instead they rushed out a beta for some stupid fighter game tournament that the vast majority don’t care about. The disc itself is absolutely worthless to a collector like myself. Years down the line when nothing is playable online and/or you lose all your update data, its going to be next to unplayable. Capcom should have offered refunds, and free games to all the people they scammed into buying this trash.

How to save windows mobile in 2016?

I think they’re already trying to do what I think is their best option. Focus on the best and broadest range of tools for developers to make apps for the platform, this is key to laying ground work to compete in a very steep market place. If they can please their developers, it will gradually have a knock on effect to pleasing their consumers.
