  • My favourite too
  • Ben and Terry (and Joe) rock. That is all.
  • hmmm...I thought they were roll(ing)
  • Rock?lol.........
  • It's been a week already, get over it
  • Nope.
  • Good for you Daniel! Thankfully the WP Central team doesn't "get over it"
  • Lol
  • We're not even getting started, pal. Wait until the 14th. That's when the real show begins.
  • Hm? This thing is interesting. I don't understand your thought of to get over it.
  • What does Ben Rudolph look like with hair??
  • Like Ben Rudolph with hair.
  • Not seeing any video or link in the WPCentral app for windows phone.
  • I'll fix, hold on
  • Thanks Daniel.
  • Try it now!
  • Nope. :(
  • Huh, no video. -wpcentral app-
  • I can see
  • I can't see a link either...
  • No video, for those on app. Why oh why Daniel?
  • I just want the 8.1  donwload for the phones to be released already.....  
  • Seems like I can't find the video.
  • You are on the dark side dude. You wont find anything.
  • Video is not showing in the app actually. Had to visit the website. But I did like the reference.
  • Do you know why I like Microsoft? Its because they have a vision for the industry they are a part of. No matter where their products stand, they are shaping the awesomeness of technology that is about to come. WP FTW!
  • Exactly. In contrast to their competitors, Microsoft are all about the good of technology in general. The others are just about themselves.
  • Universal apps and Modern apps running in resizable windows for desktop users will be the game changer. It changes everything.
  • Was wondering what happened to Ben...
  • Oooh some Siri/Google vs Cortana challenges with Ben will be fun.
  • April 14th bring it on!
  • Windows Store icon pinned to the taskbar = first thing I removed from all three of my 8.1 pc's after the update
  • So did I. But it's good to have it there for people who didn't know what the update brings. It clearly indicates one of the key new features.
  • Ben has a last name? O.o
  • Of course he does. Ben TheWindowsPhoneGuy. Think it's norwegian.  
  • Long time no see
  • Ben the pc guy I like his event of Windows phone showing how fast it is.
  • What's going on the 14th?
