Got an idea for a new feature? Suggest it & vote on other new features for Windows Phone 8!

Suggest & Vote on new Windows Phone Features

Do you have the next best idea for Windows Phone 8? Then what are you waiting for!? Share it! And no, I don’t mean you should waste your energy sharing it in the middle of 1500 comments (or 200 or so) on an Engadget review of Windows Phone 7.5 Mango. No, no, no. That’s a terrible idea. Even if the Windows Phone team at Microsoft actually read all the comments on every Mango review (which, to […]

The Samsung Focus Super AMOLED Screen: Yea, it scratches.

And, there you have it – my beautiful Super AMOLED screen, with a tiny little scratch on it. Nothing to cry home about, but definitely noticeable to the trained eye. To be honest, it’s not a really big deal – and it’s not like I didn’t entirely expect it to happen – but it’s still a sad day when it does. Anyway – I had the phone in my jacket pocket, and accidently put my […]

WP7 Woes: Where are my email toast notifications??

Windows Phone 7 toast notification

It bugged me on day one with my phone – and it’s still bugging me 2 months later. Why do I not get a fancy little dropdown or toast notification when I get a new email? WHY?

why windows phone 7?

To be honest – I don’t really know yet! After using this device for 3 weeks – I’d say there’s been a good share of ups and downs – but definitely more ups than downs! And although people may, uh, will argue with me – I personally don’t think the downs are nearly big enough to be dealbreakers for me. So over the next few posts, I may delve into a few of these topics […]

so umm, like, what’s a windows phone anyway?

Well, unless you’ve been living under a rock (which, sadly, happens to be the case for 95% of the population), you *might* have heard about a super cool new mobile operating system called Windows Phone 7! Wait, what? Hasn’t Microsoft been in the mobile game for ages with that clunky old mammoth of an operating system called Windows Mobile? Why yes indeed, sir! Except… well, Microsoft felt the same way about Windows Mobile as you […]
