Windows 10 Technical Preview for Phones: All You Need to Know

By Rich W Woods By now, I’m sure you have heard about the Windows 10 Technical Preview for phones and small tablets. Well, it’s not for small tablets just yet. It’s really just for phones.

First Look at the Microsoft Health Web App

First Look at the Microsoft Health Web App

By Rich W Woods Yesterday, Microsoft put in some work on the Microsoft Band and the corresponding Microsoft Health app. That’s right, the app that goes with the Microsoft Band is Microsoft Health, even though there is no other purpose for Microsoft Health other than to use it with a Microsoft Band.

Microsoft Lumia 535 Review: The Nokia Trade-Off

By Rich W Woods Back in September, Nokia announced the Nokia Lumia 730, 735, and 830. I called it the Nokia trade-off.

Microsoft Screen Sharing Accessory Review

By Rich W Woods Last week, Microsoft released a Screen Sharing Accessory. Microsoft was kind enough to send me a review unit of the Screen Sharing Accessory. It is likely the first device to be rebranded from Nokia to the Microsoft brand. The Microsoft Screen Sharing Accessory works with any device that is Miracast enabled. It needs to be paired through Bluetooth but the user can also use NFC to speed up the process.

Surface Pro 3: A User Review

By Rich Woods The Surface Pro 3 is the third Surface that I’ve bought. The Surface RT, Surface Pro, and the Surface Pro 3 were all in my hands in the first week they were available. Let’s start with why the Surface Pro 3 is better than the Surface Pro 2. Every Surface model so far has been marketed as the tablet that can replace your laptop. The problem with the RT line was that…
