I bought several popular Xbox Live Arcade games either when they came out, or after they received great critical acclaim. And then I never got around to playing them.
Whether it was Max and the Magic Marker on Windows Phone, or Bastion on Xbox Live Arcade, I’ve got some catching up to do! Even Retro City Rampage is waiting for me to give it a little more attention! Not to mention I bought the original Sonic the Hedgehog trilogy and never made much progress in those games. Or how about some of the fighting games I bought just for the sake of owning them, like Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix, Mortal Kombat Arcade, or Marvel vs. Capcom 2! I’ve just got so many games I’ve added to my digital collection over the years that I forget about. Maybe it’s time to spend a nice weekend going through “the collection.” And maybe next weekend I should go through my Steam or GoG account and see what I’m missing out on!?
Can we dial the hyperbole back just a tad? It’s like people in various walks of life got a new computer this week, it came with Windows 8, they didn’t like it, so they decided to say nasty things about Microsoft. Continue reading “No, it's not OVER for Microsoft or Windows”
The Environmental Working Group has a list of products they call the Dirty Dozen.

Now, I’m not big in to these lists, I’m an old fashioned “that which does not kill me…” kind of guy. But when my neighbor showed me this quick and simple app, I thought some people out there might want to know it!
The app is self contained and has the Dirty Dozen and the Clean 15, as well as a list of several dozen common grocery items that you will find in your home, and how they rank among the others as far as toxins go and whether or not you should consider buying “organic.” The app, of course, is simply called Dirty Dozen on the Windows Phone. Enjoy!
Last week, Microsoft formally unveiled two-factor authentication for your Microsoft Account. I mentioned on Sunday that Xbox Live would be taking advantage of this new feature.
Tired of opening your browser and finding the website for the authenticator? You can now get the app on Windows Phone! If you’re a Windows Phone user already, but you wanted two-factor authentication on your Google account, you can also use this same app, since Google’s Authenticator App for Android doesn’t seem like it’s ever coming to Windows Phone. Microsoft’s Authenticator for Windows Phone is certainly the way to go to enhance your security!
