  1. I have HP Pavilion DV6-2174-TX Notebook PC which has no official support for Windows 8 from HP.But i downloaded drivers from here and it worked for Windows 8.After i clean installed Windows 8.1 Pro with WMC,i tried the driver for Nvidia GeForce 105M Graphics card from Windows update as well as from Nvidia website.I experience random BSODs Even if i don't install/update the driver i get BSOD?I tried Driver Magician but resulted in BSOD.BSOD is always related to Nvidia driver. Do you suggest any reliable software for updating my driver? Does anyone the way to install Win 8 driver on WIn 8.1?
  2. I want to install one of linux distribution like ubuntu or linuxmint or elementary OS alongside my Windows 8.1 with AX64 Installed. I added boot menu of AX64 to my Windows 8.1 Pro, will it make any conflict if i installed linux ?
  3. The Windows Phone emulator has been very generous in providing under the hood information of Microsoft's mobile OS. Besides the countless clues regarding the scheduled for April update to Windows Phone 8, the emulator has obviously a lot more to share - particularly an interesting bit of info about the next-generation iteration of the OS dubbed Windows Phone 8.5. TimeMe developer has encountered an interesting tooltip in the WP Emulator, which indicates that secondary live tiles may no longer be available in Windows Phone 8.5. Check out the exact tooltip message below. This doesn't necessarily mean that the secondary live tile will disappear entirely, but most probably the API may be altered or completely rewritten to allow new functionality. In any case, Microsoft plans to change the start screen in Windows Phone 8.5. In addition, Windows Phone 8.1 will allow developers to choose a shorter update period for their Live Tiles. Currently, the update happens every 30 minutes, but Windows Phone 8.1 will introduce a shorter update period of 1 minute. Microsoft is holding their BUILD developer conference in April. There, the software giant will spill all the beans of the upcoming Windows Phone 8.1, which is scheduled to hit devices this spring. Source
  4. Just a short while ago, a registry tweak allowed everyone to snag the highly-anticipated update to Windows 8.1. Not to be outdone, today saw the leak of Internet Explorer 11 Spring 2014 Update for Windows 7, which brings along Enterprise Mode. For those curious, the build number is 11.0.9600.17029. Enterprise mode allows companies to specify which website should be viewed in IE8 compatibility mode and which websites do not need to utilize compatibility mode. This feature will come with Windows 8.1 Update 1 as well. No word on when Microsoft will officially roll out this update to Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 7. Chances are we might hear about it during the Build 2014 Developer Conference in April. E11 Update for Windows 7 with Enterprise mode build 11.0.9600.17029 leak soon .. pic.twitter.com/kverjasRaX — WZor (@WZorNET) March 6, 2014 Source
  5. We have yet more screenshots of the currently in-development update for Windows 8.1, which reveal new changes which we can expect to see be unveiled at Microsoft's annual BUILD conference. Today, we have screenshots of build 9600.16596 which introduces the ability to pin Modern UI apps directly on the taskbar. As you can see from the screenshot above, the Windows Store app is pinned to the taskbar, and in the Taskbar properties window you can see the option to 'Show Store apps on the taskbar'. This is an obvious advancement towards the ability to run Modern UI apps in the desktop, something which is rumoured to be coming in Windows 9. Still no sign of a Mini Start Menu, which isn't actually expected to make an appearance in Update 1. The full build string reads 6.3.9600.16596.WINBLUES14_GDR_LEAN.140114-0237, which was compiled on January 14 2014 at 2:37AM. Looks like the Microsoft team are working late into the night! Source
  6. Microsoft's next big thing, the Windows Phone 8.1 OS, is expected to hit the devices later this year, with some much needed features to make sure the OS can compete with the rival platforms. We've seen a few reports predicting the OS to see daylight at Build 2014 in April, and today, there's another rumor hinting towards a similar time frame. Recently, a Twitter user Nawzil, who has been behind a number of Windows-related leaks in the past, tweeted that Windows Phone 8.1 will hit RTM in March. Well, if you're following the whole Windows Phone 8.1 saga, you should know that it's something that was mentioned a few days back by the well-connected Mary Jo Foley in a blog post. She said WP8.1 will RTM just before the BUILD 2014 conference kicks off, which will happen on April 2nd. Secondly, he mentions Windows Phone developers will get access to it in April, followed by a public launch in May. Well, again, I must say this isn't something new either. Mary Jo already stated that it will hit the public devices "later this April," which could take as long as May, with the developers getting access to it before the consumers. Source
  7. By Bogdan Popa January 28th, 2014, 09:10 GMT Microsoft is expected to break the news on Windows 9 in just a couple of months at the BUILD 2014 developer conference, but people familiar with the matter are also revealing some of the features that could be part of the next full Windows release. Based on all these rumors, several designers across the world have created more or less eye-candy interpretations of Windows 9, most of which come with Start Menus and Modern apps that run directly on the desktop. DeviantArt user nik255 has created a beautiful concept that envisions the key features of the upcoming Windows 9, including a Start Menu, options to run Metro apps outside the Modern environment, and multiple desktops support. As you can see in the photo gallery below, the concept does borrow some design elements from other platforms, but they still look great and there’s no doubt that Microsoft would make Windows 9 a lot more appealing if it decides to go for such an approach. As far as existing speculation is concerned, word is that Microsoft would share its Windows 9 plans in April at the BUILD 2014 developer conference, with work on the project expected to start later the same month. What’s more, Microsoft expects to complete the development process for Windows 9 in approximately one year, which means that the next full Windows release should be here by April 2015. Windows 9 is very likely to bring back the traditional Start Menu, in another attempt to make the operating system more user-friendly and easier to use for beginners. At the same time, people familiar with Microsoft’s plans pointed out that options to run Metro apps on the desktop just like traditional Windows software could be also be part of the upcoming project. We’re still waiting for Microsoft to share more on Windows 9, so take all these details with a pinch of salt until we hear something official. http://news.softpedia.com/news/Windows-9-Concept-Makes-Microsoft-s-OS-Look-Stunning-421297.shtml
  8. Nokia has asked Mobile World Congress attendees to join it on February 24, where they’ll get a chance to see the firm’s newest hardware releases. The official event invitation didn’t give us any hints about what these new products would be, but a series of leaks have provided a few choice details about Nokia’s next Lumia devices. The latest report comes from DigiTimes, and apparently confirms much of what has come before. It speculates Nokia will have three Lumia smartphones to show us, all of which will run Windows Phone 8.1, the next major update to Microsoft’s mobile operating system. If so, this would preempt Microsoft’s own unveiling of Windows Phone 8.1, which is expected to take place in April. Quoting sources in Taiwan’s manufacturing industry, the three phones will be headed up by the Lumia 1820, a new flagship phone from Nokia. The specs sound optimistic, as they include the Snapdragon 805 processor – which Qualcomm has yet to release – and a “qHD” resolution, which we take to mean 2560 x 1440 pixels and not 960 x 540. The screen could measure 5.2-inches, and the whole thing may be powered by a 3400mAh battery. Joining the admittedly exciting Lumia 1820 could be a pair of Lumia 1520 spin-offs. The Lumia 1520V could be a “Mini” version of the 6-inch original, this time equipped with a 4.5-inch display (just like the Lumia 920 and Lumia 925), a 1080p resolution, and a 14-megapixel camera. Additionally, a Lumia 1525 is mentioned, but without any specs. Previous rumors have also given the 1525 a 1440p resolution, plus a 25 or 30-megapixel camera. These reports also had the 1520V down as being powered by a Snapdragon 800 chip. Source
  9. By Ben Zigterman on Jan 27, 2014 at 7:15 PM Two months before Steve Jobs introduced the Macintosh to the world in 1984, Microsoft demoed an early version of Windows at COMDEX 1983. Much like the soon-to-be-announced Mac, it featured a graphical user interace with the desktop metaphor, including windows and icons. Users could open multiple windows and use Microsoft Word to edit and format a text document. Over 30 years later, Time uncovered video of this demo taken by Dan Bricklin, the co-creator of the first spreadsheet program. He carried his video camera and tape deck around the convention, and uploaded the video to YouTube two years ago. The video, beginning at 6:53, shows Microsoft Word, a clock, and an image editor all on screen at the same time. Instead of overlapping windows, the three programs snap into place to take up as much of the screen as possible. While Windows was announced before the Macintosh, it ended up not being released until November 1985. And it was not a complete operating system, acting instead as a front-end to MS-DOS. Windows 1.0 was also not as user-friendly and polished as the Macintosh, with clunky window-resizing and a confusing icon dock. http://bgr.com/2014/01/27/windows-1-0-video

  11. By Kip Kniskern Posted January 16, 2014 According to a new blog post on the Outlook blog, the Sweep feature in Outlook.com is used more than 7.5 million times per week. It allows users to clean out their inboxes using bulk delete of certain types of email, and setting up rules for how that email should be handled in the future. With the updated Sweep feature, rolling out to Outlook.com users “in the coming weeks”, a newly updated UI will provide a simpler interface, requiring less clicks to use. Search is also being updated in Outlook.com: With your email organized the way you want it, you can use the updated Search tool to quickly find email regardless of the category or folder it’s in. One of the most commonly-searched criteria is for people, so we now show your contact names and pictures together when you’re looking for them. Searching for a contact will find all email from any email address they have, so you don’t have to remember whether that email came from their personal address or their work address. We also provide suggested search criteria for the type of email you may be looking for (e.g. and has an attachment). Advanced search now contains more search criteria and has a cleaner UI, and filters that can be applied to the search results. The blog post goes on to tout the “7th Annual National Clean Out Your Inbox Week”, and points out a number of other features improvements coming in the new update. You will soon be able to organize more easily by categories, and “automatically categorize all email from a particular sender in four clicks: click Categories, click the category name, click Apply to all from… and then click Categorize all, automatic filing, instant actions and keyboard shortcuts”. That same “”apply to all from…” functionality will also appear with the Move to feature, choosing to “Move all email from….” To a certain folder, and creating a custom rule for future emails. The update also contains improvements to instant actions, keyboard shortcuts, mobile, and video and chat capabilities from popular services, including Skype, Facebook, Google, Twitter and LinkedIn. http://www.liveside.net/2014/01/16/outlook-com-to-update-sweep-search-and-more
  12. Editorial Vlad Dudau 2 hours ago In my book Windows Phone has a few things going for it. First of all the refreshing Modern UI, which some people hate, but I find to be playful, functional and beautiful. Secondly: high-quality, beautiful devices from the likes of Nokia and even HTC which attract the eyes of consumers with their colors and style. However there are some indications that all of this might change in the near future and not for the better. I’m not referring to the operating system UI, which Microsoft has made quite clear that it’s committed to. Yes, Modern as a design language has become the Redmond’s company primary focus going forward, integrating it in all of their products, like the recently launched Xbox One, and Windows 8. The multi-colored live-tiled interface is here to stay and that for one makes me happy. What I’m referring to is the hardware side. Things might soon shift back towards the colorless slabs of glass and metal that were, and still are in large part, the de facto standard of smartphone and tablet design. Windows Phone 7 launch line-up. Can you spot the difference? If we go back to 2010, when Windows Phone first launched, you might remember that the original line-up of devices had pretty much the same look and feel to them. Whether it was the HTC Mozart, or the Samsung Omnia 7 or even the Dell Venue Pro with its physical keyboard, all the devices were pretty much the same. Sure, some had rounder corners, other had straight ones and the phones differed somewhat in terms of internals but from a user’s point of view they were all the same plastic slab with a screen thrown on top. Going a bit further we can easily say that all smartphones back then looked like that. Following Apple’s sterile iPhone design codes, which it had adopted years earlier for the iPod and Mac devices, all companies churned out black, uninspiring handsets. Yes, some of them could be rather beautiful, especially when they were the original design and not copycats. The iPhone 4 as well as some HTC handsets are good examples of this but the market quickly got saturated with the same design being rehashed over and over again by all the OEMs. The Nokia Lumia 900 - cyan all the way! Enter Nokia. I would like to argue that the Finnish company’s biggest contribution to current smartphones isn’t in terms of sales numbers or software, but rather in terms of design. Following the short-lived N9 with Meego, Nokia quickly repackaged their design ideas, added a lot of color, character and launched the Lumia 800. This wasn’t a commercial success, nor one in terms of critical achievement but it was a success in that it changed the conversation of how smartphones should look and feel. The Lumia 800 brought with it a bold and playful statement, and Microsoft’s and Nokia’s commitment to push this as a more personal handset to consumers paid off. Folks, both in terms of critics, consumers and even other OEMs noticed. A beautiful cyan-blue plastic, combined with the company’s legendary build quality made people pay attention. And most importantly it made other OEMs pay attention. A few months later the same thing happened once again with the Lumia 900, leaving many to wonder why there weren’t more well-designed colorful phones on the market. Finally we get to the launch of Windows Phone 8 and all the handsets that went with it. In something reminiscent of Skittles ads or even this famous Sony Bravia clip, Windows Phone 8 handsets, like the eye-catching Lumia 920 or the playful and stylish designs from HTC made a big colorful splash in the markets. And Nokia’s continued emphasis on good design and desirable looks, as seen in the Lumia 625 or the recently launched Lumia 525, finally made other OEMs cave in and join. Apple took a page out of its own playbook and came back to a much more colourful reality. Last year’s iPod touch models brought a bit of style and this year Apple went all in with the launch of the iPhone 5C. Even the 5S now gets a bit of a makeover with the gold/champagne version. And even Samsung says it’s thinking a lot more about design and build quality even though nothing has yet come of this. The Lumia 2520, a tablet with a splash of personality However this situation may soon change. Nokia is giving up on smartphones and its whole handset division will become part of Microsoft. Now, I’m not saying that Microsoft doesn’t do good design, as the Modern UI itself and Surface tablets clearly show it does. But it has yet to create playful, colorful devices that have their own appeal like the Nokia branded Lumia 2520 tablet. And in fact Microsoft has disappointed many with the rather uninspiring design of their Xbox One console. The company is unpredictable in this field. It occasionally sees major success but more often than not it’s seen as predictable and dull. There’s a real chance that all of Nokia’s hard work might get squashed or at least roughed up under Microsoft’s corporate legacy. Samsung Ativ S - might this be the future of Windows Phone design? And there’s another clue as to the future of Windows Phone hardware. According to recent rumors, Windows Phone 8.1 will completely ditch the physical keys and will go for an Android-styled approach where everything is digital. Why’s that important? Because Microsoft is trying to make it easier for OEMs to switch between Android and the Windows Phone platform. Which ultimately means OEMs will adopt a one size fits all approach and simply reuse their Android designs for WP handsets. And that pretty much takes us back to the Windows Phone 7 launch and its uninspiring black plastic slabs. Of course it doesn't necessarily end like this. Apple seems to have re-committed to colors and it will hopefully drag the rest of the market with them, much like it has in the past. Microsoft themselves will hopefully embrace all that the Lumia team is bringing with it. So even though Nokia’s role in the smartphone wars is ending, we can all hope that their legacy lives on including their awesome playful and user-friendly design.

  13. Microsoft has just announced that it is extending the support for Anti-Malware protection on Windows XP till July 2015. With this, Microsoft wants to bid more migration time to the existing Windows XP users. The decade old operating system Windows XP is set to go off support by April this year. This originally implied that Microsoft won’t be pushing any security patches to the operating system as and when we hit the deadline. In a blogpost, Microsoft writes, Microsoft has announced the Windows XP end of support date of April 8, 2014. After this date, Windows XP will no longer be a supported operating system. To help organizations complete their migrations, Microsoft will continue to provide updates to our antimalware signatures and engine for Windows XP users through July 14, 2015. To make things clear, Microsoft is not extending the deadline. Windows XP will still be unsupported after April 2014. But this Anti-Malware protection will make the operating system a bit more secure. This does not affect the end-of-support date of Windows XP, or the supportability of Windows XP for other Microsoft products, which deliver and apply those signatures. So what does this change mean to consumers? The enterprise users will continue getting the following security protection: System Center Endpoint Protection, Forefront Client Security, Forefront Endpoint Protection and Windows Intune running on Windows XP. Whereas for normal users, Microsoft Security Essentials will get you covered till July 2015 Although Anti-Malware protection itself won’t make the operating system fully protected, since there’s a limited number of things it can do, it will come handy to tackle with a wide range of malware and help in trying to secure Windows XP, against the many dangers it may face. This is a welcoming change from Microsoft and shows how much it cares about its users. Source

    Chrome 32 v Windows

    By Paul Thurrott Jan. 15, 2014 Google extends the middle finger towards Redmond, again The latest update to Google's web browser, called Chrome 32, adds a number of useful new features and changes, such as the ability to mute individual tabs (perfect for annoying web sites). But Windows users are going to notice two more dramatic changes, neither of which are very welcome. Google describes some of the changes in Chrome 32 in a blog post. But the big changes for Windows users are sort of glossed over or at least deemphasized. The first of the two Windows-based changes applies only to Windows 8.x: On those versions of the OS the "Metro" mode gets a new look, as Google explains, that basically brings the Chrome OS user experience to Windows. This means that when you run Chrome in Metro mode, you're basically running Chrome OS: You get the Windows 7-style launcher, floating browser windows and inefficient Chrome OS-style windowing controls. Oh the innovation! So why is this a problem? Metro apps run full screen, and Chrome for Metro does not, instead providing its own non-standard windowing environment. It's like a shell within a shell. The second of the new changes, however, is perhaps even more alarming. In this release of Chrome, even the desktop version of the browse now dispenses with native, standard UI controls like radio buttons and scrollbars. Instead, it uses non-standard UI controls that match the look and feel of Chrome for Metro and thus Chrome OS. Here's a shot of the new Chrome 32 scrollbar control with native scrollbar controls seen in other windows behind it. The Chrome 32 scrollbar thumb is only 10 pixels wide—50 percent skinnier than the native control in Windows 8.x—and thus much harder to click with the mouse. And there are no directional arrows for smaller scroll movements. Even more problematic for me are the tiny new radio buttons and checkboxes, which I need to use every day while managing this site. I use Chrome for this, and they're much harder to click now. This is a huge problem. And Google's complete disrespect for Windows, while understandable, is bad for its own users. As with its crazy decision to stop supporting Exchange ActiveSync (EAS), Google's actions continue to be hostile to users on Microsoft's platforms. And like that EAS episode, it's alarming because this literally impacts hundreds of millions of people. (To be fair, Microsoft is no stranger to using non-standard UI controls. If you look at applications like the Zune PC software or modern versions of Office, you'll see similar non-standard controls that are not part of the stock set built into Windows. But the Mac version of Office in no way resembles Office for the PC, which is perhaps a better comparison.) I'm kind of hoping there's a way to revert Chrome to the standard UI controls. http://winsupersite.com/cloud/chrome-32-vs-windows

System32: AppxAllUserStore.dllAppxApplicabilityEngine.dllAppXDeploymentClient.dllAppXDeploymentExtensions.dllAppXDeploymentServer.dllAppxPackaging.dllAppxSip.dllAppxStreamingDataSourcePS.dllAppxSysprep.dllWSReset.exeWSService.dllWSShared.dllWSSync.dllWSTPagerSysWOW64: AppxAllUserStore.dllAppxApplicabilityEngine.dllAppXDeploymentClient.dllAppxPackaging.dllAppxSip.dllWSShared.dllWSSync.dllLastly.. launch Autoruns and you'll notice services, task schedules, and startup entries relating to the App Store are now missing. Go ahead and disable in Autoruns. Obviously.. only proceed if you don't use the App Store. I've had this applied since last week.. i have yet to encounter any issues.. if any issues are experienced.. let me know.. im also curious ... FYI: this can also be applied to other services that Windows 8 forbid disabling.. simply take ownership.. and delete/rename the associated DLL or EXE. Update: January 5, 2014 - Found a way to disable TimeBroker service, a known memory hog, and only needed for Metro apps. - Take ownership and either rename by adding .bak suffix or completely delete following files. System32: TimeBrokerClient.dllTimeBrokerServer.dllSysWOW64: TimeBrokerClient.dllThen launch Autoruns and you'll notice TimeBroker service can be disabled.

  19. Written by Ron on January 12, 2014 - 07:05PM If you are looking to make the switch to Windows Phone or simply confused by all the Nokia Lumia choices out there, have no fear. There are quite a few options out there for those interested in purchasing a brand new Nokia Lumia Windows Phone device. Ranging from the Lumia 520, all the way up to the Lumia 1520, which of these Windows Phone devices are the best for you? Nokia launched its line of smartphones called 'Lumia' running Microsoft's Windows Phone platform, first introduced back in November of 2011. These Lumia smartphones were the result of a partnership between Nokia and Microsoft, and aimed to challenge Apple's iPhone and Google's Android dominated smartphone market. Thanks to the Nokia Lumia line of smartphones, Microsoft can proudly tout Windows Phone as the third-place platform, behind iOS and Android. Sure, Windows Phone is on other devices, but Nokia makes up for the majority of Windows Phone devices out in the market today. Nokia Lumia Windows Phone devices all range from a wide variety of specs, color options, and price points. Available on three of the biggest carriers in the United States - Verizon, ATT, and T-Mobile - choosing the right Lumia device may be a daunting task for some. Lets explore some of these handsets and see which one is the right choice for you. Nokia Lumia 520, 521, 525 First off, we have the Nokia Lumia 520. Touted as the most popular Windows Phone device ever, the Nokia Lumia 520 is by far the most affordable choice out there. We recently did a piece on this device called Nokia Lumia 520: Exploring the world's most popular Windows Phone device ever and we suggest taking at look at it if you haven't already. The Nokia Lumia 520 is a 4-inch handset (WVGA 800 x 480) with a 5MP camera, 512MB of RAM, 8GB of storage and a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4​ 1GHz dual-core processor. This device features 3G connectivity. If you want the same specs, but with 4G connectivity, the Lumia 521 is your phone. The Lumia 525, on the other hand, is similar to the 520 and 521 except that it features 1GB of RAM. These devices pack basic power and functionality with a cheap price tag. Perfect as a secondary device or a backup device. Nokia Lumia 620, 625 The Nokia Lumia 620 is a Windows Phone 8 smartphone which features a 3.8-inch display, Qualcomm's Snapdragon S4 Plus processor with 1Ghz dual-core CPUs, a 5MP rear camera, and 8GB of internal storage. Unlike the Lumia 520, the 620 features a front-facing camera. The Lumia 625, on the other hand, features the same specs as the Lumia 620 except for a larger 4.7-inch display and a slightly bumped 1.2Ghz CPU. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qU3kZQt4KOM Nokia Lumia 720 The Nokia Lumia 720 is a SIM-free device which you can snag from online retail outlets such as Amazon.com and comes packed with a 4.3-inch WVGA (800 x 480) IPS LCD. The device also features a Qualcomm's Snapdragon S4 Plus processor with 1Ghz dual-core CPUs, 512MB RAM, 8GB storage space, and a 6.7MP camera. Nokia Lumia 810, 820, 822 The Nokia Lumia 810 features a 4.3-inch WVGA (800 x 480) display, with a 1.5 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB of internal storage, and an 8MP camera. The Lumia 820 features a 4.3-inch WVGA (800 x 480) display, a 1.5 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB of internal storage, and a slightly better 8.7 MP camera. The Lumia 822, available on Verizon, features a 4.3-inch WVGA (800 x 480) display, with a 1.5 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 1GB RAM, 16GB of internal storage, and an 8MP camera. Nokia Lumia 920, 925, 928, 929* The Nokia Lumia 920 is an AT&T Windows Phone device that features a 4.5-inch WXGA (1280 x 768) IPS LCD display, with a 1.5 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 1GB RAM, 32GB of storage, and an 8.7MP Pureview camera. The Lumia 925, on the other hand, is newer with an Amoled display, rather than an IPS LCD display. Having roughly the same specs as the Lumia 920, the Lumia 925 is simply lighter and thinner. The Lumia 928, which is available via Verizon, features the same specs as the Lumia 920. The Lumia 928 sets itself apart by having both a Xenon and LED flash on the rear camera, along with a trio of mics for noise cancelation and distortion-free recording. Verizon is also rumored to be receiving the Lumia 929 (also known as the Lumia ICON), which features a 5-inch 1080p display, 2.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage space, and a 20MP camera. Nokia Lumia 1020, 1320, 1520 The Lumia 1020 is known for its 41MP camera with Xenon flash. Other specs include a 4.5-inch screen with 334 ppi and WXGA (1280 x 768) resolution, dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU, 2GB RAM, and 32GB of storage. The Lumia 1320 is a lower-cost sibling of the 6-inch Lumia 1520 and features a 6-inch 720p screen, a 5MP camera, dual-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU, and 8GB of internal storage which can be expanded to 64GB. There is also a 5MP camera. The Lumia 1520, on the other hand, is the current flagship Windows Phone device in the market with a gigantic 6-inch display sporting a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels with 367 ppi density. Under the hood, the phablet is powered by the monstrous Snapdragon 800 SoC clocked at 2.2GHz with Adreno 330 GPU and 2 GB of RAM. The device also features 16GB of storage space and a 20MP camera.

If you are in the United States, AT&T has a wider selection of Lumia devices, including the higher end Lumia 1520. Those of you on Verizon will have to wait for the Lumia ICON to be released, otherwise settle for the Lumia 928. Sprint, for now, does not have any Nokia Lumia devices available for purchase, but you can use an unlocked Windows Phone device on the network. As for carriers outside of the United States, let us know in the comments below which Nokia Lumia device you are able to choose from and the name of the carrier. So which one of these devices are best for you? If you are looking for something simple and basic in functionality, snag the Lumia 521 which comes with 4G connectivity. A great midrange device would be any device in the 9xx range for those wishing to have a balance between power and price. For those of you who want a larger screen device and a powerhouse device without worrying about price, grab the 6-inch Lumia 1520. Which Nokia Lumia device do you currently own and on what carrier?

  20. In Depth The brand new front-end interface in Windows 8 is starting to make sense When Windows 8 introduced the Start screen at the expense of the Start menu, it certainly made the natives restless. "It's bigger, brighter, bolder, much more personal and much more controversial" we wrote in our Windows 8 review. And you only need to take a quick glance down at the comments underneath that article to see some of the anger directed at Microsoft. Where was the hallowed Start button? Why had the desktop been demoted to app status? How does this new-fangled Start screen work? From the Facebook news feed to iOS 7, big changes always generate a certain amount of opposing opinions. For many, it felt as if Microsoft was foisting an unwanted tablet interface onto its loyal user base, those who were already happy with the traditional Start menu, taskbar and desktop paradigm. Start screen vs Start menu For me, after a full year of use, it feels like the brave new world of the Start screen is one that I'm very happy to be in the look of Windows 7 feels rather old-fashioned and one-dimensional in comparison Once you've worked out how to operate the Start screen - which for most people, should be about 10-15 minutes - it's fast, intuitive and on the whole a pleasure to use. It's certainly better looking than its predecessor. As soon as Windows loads, I'm met with news stories, weather updates, emails and social media feeds before I've even clicked anything, thanks to the Live Tiles. My most-used apps are right in front of me rather than buried in hard-to-find sub-menus. When it's time to open up the old faithful desktop, it comes across as somewhat static and cluttered, although perhaps I just need to organise my shortcuts better... Improved Start screen apps The Start screen apps - admittedly very basic and awkward when Windows 8 first came out - are fast improving in quality (although some issues remain). Netflix, for example, feels so much more intuitive and smooth when run from the Start screen rather than inside a browser, with its endlessly scrolling titles and chunky controls. Most of my time is still spent on the desktop. But when I want to focus on one task (such as a movie or a video call) the simplicity and ease-of-use of the Windows 8.1 Start screen always appeals. On the whole I'm still much more attached to desktop applications, but as a launcher and navigation tool the Start screen has won me round. Viewing running apps as a cascade of thumbnails down the left makes much more sense than poking around on the taskbar, while the global Search and Settings charms are a huge improvement over grappling with File Explorer or Control Panel. The latter options are still there for the power users (and I make use of them often) but for quick, painless computing the Start screen makes sense more often than not. Optimised for touch I haven't used Windows 8/8.1 on a tablet, but I imagine the benefits are even more pronounced. The old desktop approach was never going to work on tablets - just look at the Windows XP slabs Bill Gates was pushing back in 2001 - and Microsoft needed something fresh. Of course it was going to be a bumpy ride, with many of us attached to the Start menu and quite happy with that way of working. However, I'm betting that anyone whose first PC is a Windows 8.1 machine is going to look back at the Start menu and find it more than a little antiquated Windows 8.1 ironed out many of the niggling problems with the original Windows 8. Start screen apps can now be organised with greater ease and sorted into groups that are, in my eyes, an improvement on the nested maze of folders that the Start menu offered. You can even boot straight to the desktop if you want to. There's obviously still work to be done - a Start screen app opening up a file you wanted to see on the desktop remains a jarring experience - but further refinements will follow. Don't rule out a Windows 8.2 update in 2014. Rethinking Windows If you're old enough to remember back to when Windows 95 arrived, you'll know that this isn't the first time Microsoft has had to rethink the way that we use our computers. Eyebrows were raised and some quick changes of habit were required when the Start menu first appeared, complete with a Brian Eno sound effect. But before long we all got on with the new way of working and soon found it impossible to go back. Then, as now, Microsoft was trying to introduce a new approach to applications and files while trying to stay faithful to its past (the legacy of MS-DOS and the needs of power users). The Start menu was gradually accepted as the more modern and flexible approach, and Microsoft will be hoping that the Start screen can pull off the same trick, given enough time. After using it day in and day out, I'm a convert. Try giving the Start screen a chance (or a second or third chance), and you might find yourself won over.

  22. Nokia Lumia 1020 saw another major price cut in the United States. The mobile photography powerhouse is now available for $99.99 for new AT&T customers who sign a two-year contract. The attractive deal is offered by Amazon. Existing AT&T customers who renew their contracts will be offered the Nokia Lumia 1020 for $149.99. When announced for AT&T, the Nokia Lumia 1020 raised a few eyebrows with its $299.99 on-contract pricing. Currently, the carrier offers the device for $199.99 in its retail stores and online. The new, sub-100 price tag will surely put the Windows Phone 8 smartphone in more hands during the holiday shopping season. source: gsmarena

  24. Since the release of Windows 8, Microsoft decided to remove the start button from the OS. Ever since, a lot of developers has used that as an advantage to create apps to bring back the start bottom. Microsoft thought of this and brought it back in Windows 8.1, yet still users are not appreciating it, and still want a start bottom app to replace Microsoft's start bottom. I have come across a lot of start bottom apps - used most of them. Day inn and Day out more and more start bottom apps is been released. Which is the BEST?
