Want to fix your Windows 8.1 battery issue on Surface RT? Turn your Bluetooth on!

62

According to Microsoft’s support forums, a user complained that his Surface RT running the latest version of the company’s Windows 8.1 Consumer Preview was seeing an extreme power decrease while in standby mode. The user also noted that a driver known as “Microsoft UART V2” seemed to be causing the issue.

Microsoft’s support team contacted the user and requested he try switching his Bluetooth to on to save battery life. Right away, this seems to be an odd solution; turning on your Bluetooth radio should decrease your device’s battery life – not improve it. That being said, as soon as said user turned on his Bluetooth radio, his issue disappeared.

Microsoft warns of a rogue Wi-Fi vulnerability on our Windows Phones

57

Microsoft has issued an advisory warning concerning a Windows Phone vulnerability when connecting to rogue Wi-Fi networks.

The issue at hand rests in a Wi-Fi authentication scheme (PEAP-MS-CHAPv2) which our Windows Phones use to access protected wireless networks. Cryptographic weaknesses in the technology can allow an attacker to recover a Windows Phone encrypted domain credentials (passwords) when it connects to a rogue access point.

MapQuest and Domino’s Pizza app for Windows Phone 8 get updated today

58

Two updates have rolled out today for some popular apps on Windows Phone: Domino’s Pizza and MapQuest, making sure you know how to find your local pizza shop for that carryout order.

First up is Domino’s Pizza, which launched back in June for Windows Phone 8 in US markets and it has sadly become one of our most used apps (running on a treadmill while ordering your next meal is über convenient). Since then, the app hasn’t had any updates but today it gets a minor one with version 1.1 ready for delivery.

Nokia Lumia 720 Review

Windows Phone Central's review of the entry level, but feature packed, Nokia Lumia 720

We know this review is late. The Nokia Lumia 720 has been available in several markets for some time now but was slightly buried behind the insanely low-priced Nokia Lumia 520 and its rise as the king of value for money smartphones.

As a result many have already been out and purchased the 720 and will have already formed their own opinions, and will no doubt offer them in our comments section below. But if for any reason you’re looking at picking up your first Windows Phone device and the Lumia 720 is on your radar, allow us to tell you why you should give it some serious consideration.

Nokia shows how the Lumia 925 camera is better than the iPhone 5 in new ad

139

Nokia has pushed a new video to their YouTube account demonstrating the strengths of their PureView camera found on the Lumia 925. But instead of just rattling off specs, they take the fight directly to Apple, challenging the notion that quantity does not equal quality by pitting it against the iPhone 5. While the video is sure to ruffle some feathers, it's a valid differentiator between the two phones and one worth highlighting to consumers.

The commercial shows various side by shots between the two devices for everyday events with users snapping away pics while a voice over talks about what makes the Lumia 925 so special. Highlighting such features as OIS (optical image stabilisation), sixth lens and PureView technology, which gets name-dropped, can go a long way towards building a brand name around this significant selling point for Nokia.
