I am still feeling out the ultra slim Ultrabook, but I can already answer one question for you. If you are choosing between buying the Surface Pro 3 and the new Yoga, you should pass on the Lenovo.

This conclusion is not to say the Yoga 3 Pro is bad, but rather I so far find it underwhelming. Let us compare.

13

Sexy sound that won't give out at the pool, in the bedroom or anywhere else

We've reviewed a couple of phone and tablet accessories from Lumsing before: their Ultrathin keyboard and their Harmonica Power Bank. I found both items to look and work great, especially given their low prices. Today we check out a new kind of accessory from Lumsing –a Bluetooth speaker.

Hot-fix for Windows Central app for Windows Phone is now live

85

Yesterday we released updates for our official Windows and Windows Phone apps for the site. No new features were implemented, but the branding was updated throughout both apps to reflect our recent name-change.

Unfortunately, a missing "/" character from the code caused the Live Tile and notifications to break in the app. You can file the mistake under rushing to meet a deadline, but the simple forward slash omission had some drastic ramifications, to say the least.

How to set Lock screen notifications in Windows 8, Windows 10 and Windows Phone

17

Beginners' Tips Series!

One of the many conveniences that the Windows family of products offers is the ability to receive notifications from apps on your Lock screen. These Lock screen notifications appear under the time and date on your device and give you a quick glimpse of any new emails, updates, events, etc. The notifications await your acknowledgement without having to log in and open any apps.

In Windows, you are limited to a total of seven apps that can notify you via the Lock screen, while Windows phone keeps it to a maximum of five. Since some apps come with Lock screen notifications enabled by default, you could find yourself running out of options. So we threw together this quick guide on how to choose which applications appear on your Lock screen.

Only one member of the US Congress uses a Windows Phone (a former Microsoft executive)

229

Microsoft has its work cut out for them in the United States where perception of the tech giant is seen as less hip than Apple. Besides the near ubiquitous adoption by celebrities of the iPhone, the US Congress is also evidently a big fan of Cupertino's hardware.

Popular DC rag The Hill conducted a survey back at the beginning of the month asking members of Congress which phones they used. As it turns out, more than 71 percent of our lawmakers use iPhones, with 28 percent still using BlackBerry. Android does not fair too well either, with only 9 percent favoring the somewhat convoluted mobile OS. Many in Congress also carry multiple phones.
