Things Windows Phone should have

This post of mine is an oldie from back in 2013 when Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8.1 were still fresh and hip. We’ve moved on and I really like Windows 10 up to now. I’ve been a Windows Insider since February 2014 so I’ve got some mileage running the latest insider builds on my ultrabook. Reactions are mixed, but I really like it (especially compared with Windows 8) although some parts do still feel like they’re unfinished or better yet: haven’t been touched.

Unfortunately Windows Phone 10 didn’t arrive to my HTC 8X untill it falsively did and bricked it, I’m again back running good old 8.1 But with Windows Phone 10 being released soon, I’m considering whether I should buy a Lumia 950 or not. And although I really want to, there are some things that are putting me off. Here is a list that Microsoft’s product group should consider, though I doubt they will ever read this post.  Read More

Surface not just yet

Sooner as I expected, Microsoft is launching surface for the whole world to be seen. But it’s not going as fast as they’d like it to go. I’m wondering how soon we’ll actually see one, I’m reading things about 2000 orders in over 50 countries. That’s 40 per country on average, and that’s not so much 🙂 So we’ll just wait and see, but I’m eager to try one; that’s for sure!

New Microsoft Surface video

Most of you will have seen Surface by now. Surface is a multi-touch display built into a table with very nice user interaction. I really dig new types of intuitive interfaces and this definitely is one of those. I found a new (it’s not brand new, but I didn’t see it before) video on YouTube which has a little more detail on surface and the technology behind (or actually below) it.

By the way, another really cool new technology is called ‘Photosynth’ and it’s also by Microsoft. Now I would love to see the two combined, but for now you can view a demonstration of photosynth or check out the online version yourself.
