Actually, you should do your research before you make ridiculous statements like that. NPR is listener supported only. Meaning it only survives on private donations from organisations and listeners. No government funding at all. And part of living in a democracy means everybody gets to make an app for their radio station. There isn't ANY legitimate way this affects your life unless you let your intolerance bed bothered by it. And no, before you go making assumptions, I'm not a whatever-derogatory-term-you-use-to-describe-liberals. I just think the world has enough intolerance and ignorance and i don't need to see it on tech blogs.

Apple already beat them to that one with OS X. I personally would prefer them to keep the Arabic numerals.

This is a terrific app.I have heard if NPR on the internet but I did not (until now) that they are an American Govenmental organisation.
I like em anyway so I'll give them a listen.

This is really bad for the platform, I don't know what else to say. I just hope Windows 10 will help solve some problems with the market share of Windows phone.

Unlucky... but seems like yours was the only one...

Working fine on my 1520 with Denim....

Ok, "Live" does sound dated. How about "Silver Explorer" or "Flash Explorer" but it is "Anti-Flash" :P Or even re-use their cloud service name "Azure Explorer"!

Want to see how he handles Mobile division.Atleast with his presence in events the developers,Press cheered unlike today All silently covering the news like Bots.

I have both as well and in my corner of the world PSN is down WAY more than XBlive and when XBLive is down it's usually not completely down, whereas PSN is crashed completely.

I do have a 1520. It does feel a bit faster, but it has a much better CPU so it ought to. And your assertion that the full 2GB isn't available to the system on a 1020 is the first I've heard of that, got a link?

Well, d#%n, I am tired of going through this with Microsoft.  If MSFT, doesn't really give a d#@n about it customers to take a stand for Windows Phone, then, I (and, many of you) am wasting time in a giving hard earned dollars to a failed business relationship.  The truth is, I have been an avid supporter of Windows Phone since 2011 with my Samsung Focus, to my Lumia 920, ending up to my Lumia 1520.  I have listened to promise after promise, and the hardware/software is nice, also, more power to those that are willing to stay with Windows Phone.  Unfortunately, I feel that this is a wake up call that Windows Phone is dying, and that the majority consensus from companies that produce apps are that producing their apps for Windows Phone is not worth the expenditure for profit returns, interest, and maintenence.  The other side of the issue is that besides its basic use, we use smartphones for ease of use and convenience, and the main aspect of convenience is the apps.  I have gone through defending Windows Phone, and promoting it, while at the same time we as Windows Users have sacrificed living through broken apps, apps that are delayed being updated, clone apps, lack of mainstream popular apps (besides the usual popular apps, like: Angry Birds, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pandora, etc) like Game Of War - Fire Age, SiriusXM, Call Of Duty, Madden (yes, Madden), local major news apps, etc.  Unless Microsoft directly confronts this issue (besides promoting Windows 10 and possibly on Windows Phone), then, this is the result of a friendship between a customer and Microsoft that will end.  When my contract subsidy for my 1520 ends, I will go Apple.  I'm sorry, but I am tired of this charade (I am not Guy Kwasaki, and he has even left Apple for Google... go figure).

Sincerely, with Love,

I left boa a long time ago because they are crooks, so this news does not bother me at all makes no difference to me. I'm with my local CU and I just use their mobile website. People still use checks in this day and age? I stopped using checks a long long time ago.

i just installed the update on an L830 with denim and the app crashes now! Does anyone else have this problem? I hope a fix is coming soon and not in two or three months!

Uh....is it just me or did the live tile stop working? Mine used to show the next appointment, now its just the calendar icon. (medium live tile)

Hmmm...Makes me wonder if they did that on purpose to offload some grandfathered subscribers...as in a bait and switch approach.

Surprised the company can afford to maintain these apps. Billions on a game and hundreds on an app we all use?

God, time to switch banks. You just lost two savings accounts, a checking account and a credit card account.

I still use it. Did something happen to it I'm not aware off? It works perfectly fine for me. It's my go to Music Player.

Of course not. It's not about which apps I personally use, it's about whether or not even big companies who already have created an app can be bothered even just to maintain it.

What the flurry of companies abandoning Windows Phone signals is that, from their view, Windows Phone is a lost cause. And BoA is one of the biggest banks in America. If they can't be bothered, it is unlikely anyone else can be, either.

And perception is reality.

This is the beginning of a death spiral, I am afraid. As a former webOS user, and a Symbian user before that, I know full well what this looks like. This is how the end begins.

Looking forward to it.  Game has really piqued my interest.  Interested to see what the gameplay is like!

Anyone know if you can stack memberships?  Meaning if my Xbox Live membership doesn't expire until August, can I buy now & add the extra year?  Making it expire in 2016?  I know you can do this with Xbox Music Pass because I'm taken care of through Dec '16.  Anyone?  

 

Can't make it tonight. I'm a sad panda. Will have to watch later because I'm curious about this games play mechanic. Thanks as always for doing these streams. Hope to see everyone on Saturday

Does tho update fix the issue with not being able to purchase music. I always get an error that I have no CC on file. But I do. I have contact support about it. After 3 month they basically told me, its an on going issue, can't help you.

Do you know some really good bluetooth headphones with aptx for Lumia 1520? o.o Or somebody knows xD

Actually, the colours might be slightly better, and the sound quality might be as well. It of cource depends on what the spurce is.

Ummmm, it's dead.. They're working on ANOTHER replacement... So, if you've been with WP for the whole ride, that's Zune, native XBM, the current XBM universal app, and coming soon the new Universal W10 XBM app....
.......
If WP gained at least 5% market share while the current XBM app was installed, then I wouldn't call it a failure. But, since WP8.0-8.1 has practically tanked I consider anything not carried over as a failure because it obviously didn't help.... Not to mention that the XBM app is notoriously HORRIBLE!...
.........
I just hope there's light at the end of the tunnel with W10... And, I'm more positive than ever.

Tmobile advertises $50 for a 1GB unthrottled unlimited data plan. Then offers the prices you said as extra for extra cash. But all their advertising is very clear on it. As are the TMobile reps when you are purchasing a plan from them.

Great point. Plus that 1.35 probably adds up to millions. Imagine how much good that money could do if spent on a good cause or charity instead of a liberal biased radio station.

I wonder if they are going to fix the fact that the recent Music Deals have been really bad. Katy Perry for $7, what a great deal! /s   Gone are the days of 50 albums for $2 each. :(
