By me, latest hardware that I'm playing with 8-)
Thinner than the thinnest netbook or ultrabook, very solid and made (almost) completely from premium materials and components, the HP Elite x3 Lap Dock is a curious piece of technology. Designed as a laptop form factor to function as a Windows 10 Continuum display, is it a glimpse of the future of mobile computing or an ultra niche accessory? Actually, a little of both. Does it work? Is it finished? Is it over-priced? These are questions that I'l...

So, Phones Show fans....

The big Show *300* is looming....! Any suggestions for making this landmark show special? I thought I'd open it to brainstorming before going off and doing my own thing as usual 8-)

Something of an odd question, but on my Nexus 6P under 7.1.1, the multitasking is nowhere near as smooth as on my old Nexus 6 under 7.0. is it my imagination, or is there something in the 6P that's going round killing apps in the background?

Seems like apps I don't touch for an hour or two suddenly aren't there anymore and have to be restarted. 8-(

+Ted Salmon​ exactly. Sunday was crazy. Swipe down once your pinned post appears, swipe again and Steve's post shows up. Swipe again Steve's post dissappears and so on.

Weekends are for maintenance on g+ with some worse than others.

All was normal the day after.

Always great to hear what Steve Nutt gets up to. Couldn't help thinking the lumia 830 with its 3 recording microphones and the 950 with yet one more would be better than the pixel for field recordings.

I suppose accessibility on the windows phones isn't as good as on other platforms.

A quick spin a time machine reveals....
Something of a time-machine enabled tradition at AAWP is that I attempt to predict the whole of next year's Windows mobile-related news, viewed from the start of 2018 in this case, looking back at 2017. As usual with this platform, plenty of patience was needed, but for those faithful to Microsoft's vision, 2017 was where it all started to come together.
