Not upgraded to Skype yet? You have more time, Messengers

69

There's no pressure from Microsoft on upgrading from Live Messenger to Skype as the company has extended the transition period to April. Originally, March 15th was the doomsday for when Messenger would be cut and Skype would become Microsoft's golden egg in the instant messenger realm of wonders. The company has fired out emails to customers detailing the close-approaching switch.

Memorylage for Windows Phone 8, a Picture Hub alternative with a collage twist

22

Memorylage is a popular Windows 8 app that is due to hit the Windows Phone Store in the next few days. We were given an advance copy of the Windows Phone 8 app to run through the wringer and found it to be an interesting photo app.

Memorylage is a photo viewer, much like the native Pictures Hub on our Windows Phone.  The app presents our photos in a collage fashion (hence the "lage" suffix) along with a few tools to build custom collages as well.  Memorylage comes across as a very nice alternative (maybe supplement is a better choice of words) to the native Pictures Hub.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon, one classy Windows 8 laptop

77


There are only a few Windows 8 laptops in production that we can consider to be the ‘high end’, machines with exacting build quality and specifications to match. While many PC makers are content to push out hum drum machines with middling specs and so so performance the same cannot be said for Lenovo and their ThinkPad range. Over the years their quality and reliability have become legend amongst the most demanding of laptop buyers.

The ThinkPad X1 comes in a body woven from Carbon fibre in a style similar to that of the current crop of Ultrabooks. Lenovo seems keen on finally shunting the look of their machines forwards and have recently adopted Chicklet keyboards and of course the wedge shape body design we have all come to recognize of late.  I’ll be kicking the tires on the X1 to see how well Lenovo have melded the heritage of ThinkPad with the modern styling of an Ultrabook.

King Oddball, conquering the world one boulder at a time

12

King Oddball is a odd little game for our Windows Phone. A little creepy as well.

You play the role of King Oddball, a disembodied head that hurls boulders from his tongue in an effort to conquer the world. You face various enemies ranging from tanks to helicopters that are scattered about various structures. The game has a bit of an Angry Birds feel to it but not enough to make it feel as a knock off.

Once you get past King Oddball's rather long tongue, the game grows on you. It has an addictive quality that makes it a nice addition to our Windows Phone gaming library.

Nokia Lumia 620 Review - Affordability never looked so good

122

Nokia’s Lumia 620 could be Palm Centro of 2013

The Nokia Lumia 620, a modestly priced entry-level Windows Phones, represents one of the best value devices we’ve encountered yet on the platform. The 620 replaces the Lumia 610, a device that went on sale last year and now runs Windows Phone 7.8. But in our opinion, the value impact of the 620 is leaps and bounds higher than its predecessor.

Make no mistake, this is an entry-level device that is not meant to rival the 800/900 series of Lumia Windows Phones. But also know this: it is one cool device and we’re having a hard time putting it down.

Nokia's DLNA app Play To has been demanded by Lumia Windows Phone 8 consumers since Microsoft launched its new mobile platform, but it has remained in beta testing. We last reported on the app back in December when Nokia revealed that it would see a Q1 2013 release.

Chicken Recipes, making cows happy everywhere

10

Chicken Recipes is a Windows Phone app that delivers a collection of meals featuring chicken as the key ingredient.

I can remember my doctor advising me to eat more two legged animals than four legged every time he reviews my cholesterol levels. It's no secret that part of being fit is having a healthy diet and chicken can be a key ingredient to a nutritional meal.  Plus it makes those Chick-fil-a cows happy.

While this Windows Phone app has potential but left us a little on the hungry side and may have some asking "where's the beef?"

From the Forums: HTC Titan lives on, thanks to a refreshing paint job

20

The HTC Titan is a sleek, attractive Windows Phone that still remains to be a favourite among many consumers. Now that both the 8S and 8X are readily available in multiple markets, how does one spice up the Titan to prolong (or refresh) its beauty? A fresh paint job, of course. This is also perfect if you've somehow managed to accumulate a few scratches on the back plate.
