I find the cloud concept to be compelling in many ways. I know a few people don’t care for it because the traditional concepts of ownership don’t necessarily apply. You buy content off Amazon, Apple, Xbox Live, and a bunch of other services but when you pass or something the ownership doesn’t transfer over to anyone else. I’m not entirely against this idea, as everything I have is my preference. But that’s me personally.

Lumia 950 with Windows 10 mobile

So, I picked up a Lumia 950 recently. I have to say that as a device I really am pleased. This is of course coming from someone who enjoyed a Lumia 925 for two years and only ever craved an updated kindle app or a book app.

If you are coming from an older Windows phone you will not be disappointed. It is a capable device with a good build and sturdy case.

Windows 10 Device Briefing

I didn’t get to watch it live when it broadcast this morning, but I did watch the Windows 10 Device briefing. Microsoft Windows 10 is now my primary Operating system on the new rig I just built. Frankly I think Microsoft for the first time since I really started caring about Computers back in the 90’s. There was a bit of a rehash at first with the Xbox Bundles coming out for the holiday, including the Halo 5 Bundle which I will be purchasing later this month.

Working in Word Mobile on the Desktop

So I decided to work on some thoughts. And sometimes the best way to do that is to find a subject and just think on it, write, and go from there. So Today I decided I would see how Word Mobile, the Universal Window Program for Word, worked in it’s full sized version on my Windows 10 Desktop. Since I don’t have anywhere near the cash needed to create a stand alone Continuum Setup, this is the next best thing when it comes to working on a specific program.
