Today, Microsoft released another shot at the RTM build for Windows 10 Mobile, this one being Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview build 10586.107.

What If…Windows Phone had the Same Apps as iOS and Android?

What If…Windows Phone had the Same Apps as iOS and Android?

We Windows Phone fans are an interesting breed. I’ve never seen another tech fandom that was so based on faith, apologies, and excuses. It does make sense though. Windows Phone is something that we love, so we find ourselves constantly asking ourselves, “Why doesn’t everyone else like this too?” So we come up with excuses. Here’s a general rundown: Microsoft just showed up too late to the party Everyone has simply made their choice by…

Microsoft’s Lumia Sales: Why it’s Good News

Wait, what? Did I just say that Microsoft selling 4.5 million Lumias in a quarter is good news? You’re goddamn right I did. After Microsoft reported their earnings and the abysmal number of Lumias that they sold, most analysts said something to the like of “there’s no way that anyone could put a positive spin on this.” Tom Warren of The Verge pronounced Windows Phone to be dead and every tech blog that covers Microsoft…

Known Issues and What’s Fixed in Windows 10 Build 14257

Microsoft released the fifth Redstone build for Windows 10 for PCs today, this build being 14257. It’s also the fourth Redstone build with no new features. As always, I do not recommend installing this build. There are no new features, so there’s risk without gain. In case you’re new to the Insider Program, Redstone will be the next major update to Windows 10. The original codename for Windows 10 was Threshold, which ended up getting…

Hands On with Windows 10 Mobile Build 10586.71

Yesterday, Microsoft released yet another iteration of the RTM build for Windows 10 Mobile, build 10586.71. Microsoft delivered a laundry list of fixes for the build. Let’s face the facts here. We’re all hoping that this build is going to be “the one”. I’d love to tell you that everything is better but it’s simply too early to tell. Most people are saying the same thing that they say every time there’s an update: “Seems…

Windows 10 is Now a Recommended Update

If you’re still running Windows 7 or Windows 8.1, you’ve most likely decided that you don’t want to upgrade to Windows 10 right now, especially if you’re reading this article. You’re probably tired of seeing Windows 10 adware on your PC. Hell, we’re all tired of seeing Microsoft “forcing” us to move to Windows 10. After all, don’t we still have the right to choose what software runs on our PCs? There are still very…

Today, Microsoft released the sixth iteration of the RTM build for Windows 10 Mobile, this one being 10586.71. Rather than the usual “we fixed a lot of bugs”, they actually listed quite a few bugs that have been squashed in this build. Keep in mind that while Windows 10 Mobile is on its sixth Threshold 2 build, Windows 10 for PCs is already on its fourth Redstone build. I really think that it speaks to…

Windows 10 Mobile Build 10586.71 Available to the Fast Ring

Today, Microsoft finally released Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview build 10586.71 to the fast ring. We’ve known about the build for some time. Windows Central even decided to announce that it would ship last Tuesday. Then again, this is why I don’t report on these rumors. Many blogs will scrape Microsoft’s update servers, see there’s a build, and then draw a conclusion that it will be released next Tuesday because, you know, Microsoft likes to…
