Completely agree with you. I am a paid XBox Music Pass subscriber as well and although I don't have XBL because I do not game (but both kids have 12-month XB1 and XBL subscriptions), I believe that there needs to be a free tier to keep the service relevant.

The free tier did not stop me from paying for XB Music Pass but absence of the free tier will make a lot of people move to other services like Pandora/Spotify etc.

screw the other people, I like my windows phone and will keep supporting microsoft until they quit making them...

If Microsoft actually marketed their phones like apple and Samsung than this number would have changed. Here in Australia there zero marketing for wp or even windows. Apple on the other hand made ads for iphone before it even got released. Hopefully MS will change their rubbish marketing plan when windows 10 is out.

We need more women in Congress!.... So that way when their nudes leak from their iPhones, it won't be a sausage fest

At least at&t displays the Windows Phones in their stores. Verizon puts them pretty much in the back where nobody ever sees them.

I'm waiting for Screenshot functionality for my review of the xbox one. I also want to share a lot of UI changes and stuff (twitter) so I really want screenshots.

Its available for £29.95 on payg upgrade (payg sim in use for at least 6 months), with no required top-up.

Entry level smartphones was how Android started the march to dominating the mobile OS marketshare!

I don't understand why he thinks Win10 will suddenly change things. No one wants Universal/Metro apps and any new API features in Win10 will be ignored if they aren't supported on Win7.

sound stack says my L525 doesn't have features to run the app! what the hell are the features.

Daniell -

With Windows 8.1 and baytrail processor based HDMI/USB sticks begining to ship for about $100 - this may be be becoming closer to reality than we think it is. Someone just needs to write a Windows Phone based remote control app for those Windows 8.1 sticks and we will be golden. 

Really need screenshot function especially since shadows of mordor added the function but currently useless on x1. The new picture background option is just brilliant.

I've been asking about the FF/RW since they separated the app from the hub. Finally they did it but yes it took way too long!

This is the number one problem with flagship Windows phones, across all carriers, at least in the US. By the time the exclusivity deal is over the flagship is no longer a flagship, and shortly after the carrier discontinues the phone. Once that happens, there is zero incentive for the carrier to approve any further updates. If only Microsoft could pull off a deal to convince the carriers that Microsoft will assume all responsibility for updates and testing. Doing this through the Preview only goes so far, as everyone still waiting for Cyan can attest to.

Im glad they are finally listening to people. 2015 should be full of goodies. I.e. Avatar store stuff and windows 10

I realy like wath MS did in the last year... NOW, the Xbox one experiance is bether then PS4...

Just downloaded, umm, it doesn't look like you can watch live TV on the TNT app. Awww man! This sux!!

Better stable than never I suppose. I'm more worried about them improving the overall experience than adding one feature that only ~5-10% people will use regularly.

Wish WP team worked as fast. The Xbox team has done awesome this year. Quick, meaningful regular updates.

Never use it for anything... but I sure do like to keep it updated. Just like Xbox music!
