Microsoft has published a video on its Windows Phone YouTube channel that shows off the new features in Windows Phone 8. Joe Belfiore from the Windows Phone team is the best choice to run viewers through everything, so be sure to check it out if you happened to miss yesterday's event.

Taking viewers through Live Tiles, Live Apps, Data Sense, Office, integration with Windows 8, as well as camera innovation in the Lumia 920, Belfiore ensures we're all eagerly wanting more.

Windows Phone 8 adds new functionality, as well as new hardware, to the platform. While there isn't a long list of new features available as many wanted to become reality, Microsoft has certainly delivered an alternative choice to Android and iOS.

Microsoft Surface Tip: Internet Explorer Favorites

40

The Microsoft Surface comes pre-loaded with Internet Explorer 10 and the one thing that was odd (or at least for me) was the lack of an obvious way to save a website as a favorite.  I kept looking for a 'star" button to add sites to my favorites list.

The process of adding a website as a favorite ended up being rather simple. Just tap on the "pin" button and you'll find two options. First to pin the site to your Start Screen for easy access and second, to add the site as a favorite.

To access your favorites, just tap on the URL field to pull up a tile list listing of frequently visited sites as well as your favorites.
