    Again looks like pile of ๐Ÿ’ฉ no matter how long I let it sit a load my music it lags and stuttering every time I scroll. No more live tile, hell none of the Xbox apps have live tiles anymore. Again we will see what the update brings.
    No i get why people hate it now.
    I nnever understood the disdain it originally got.

    I do miss zune(I would love to know why they gave up on it...a simple color change and a name change while leaving it intact as Zune would have been perfect.)

    This thread title is ridiculous, even Apple fanboys are praising this update & the features you call underperforming. If they aren't working for you, or you have suggestions,forward the information to Microsoft like you're intended to do while testing a pre release version.
    Maybe I am, maybe I'm a beta tester for MS. Like I said FAN BOY its my opinion on 8.1 good points and bad, what I like what I dont like. Guess you didn't read what I liked and thanked MS for giving us.

    Cortana is nice, but still leaves something to be desired. She already matches Siri and Google Now, but still needs to go further.

    Just today, it was a very nice temperature outside, so u decided to open some windows, especially since my parents loathe the idea of air conditioning even in the hottest summer.

    But it also threatened to reason, as evidenced by Cortana's forecast and, frankly, the sky. Well open Windows won't suffice in rain, because once the wind picks up: It blows inside the house.

    I found this to be a great time to try Cortana's wit and capabilities. So I uttered the following command, "If it rains, reminds me to close the window."

    Alas, while she understood the words perfectly, she merely gave me a big search. I phrased it multiple ways, but no cigar.

    She can easily understand the query, and she has weather data at her disposal. It's be nice if she could put two and two together, so I don't have to worry about a mess blowing in.

    This also applies for the summer.i work as a life guard, and we need to take chemical readings every hour. Needless to say, it can sometimes slip your mind. So how cool would it be to command, "Remind me to take the readings every hour until I leave work."

    I tried it many different ways (substituting "home" for "work"), but Cortana just can't do advanced functions like that just yet.

    Cortana is awesome, and really well done for a beta. But she has a long way to go before she can truly replicate what a real assistant can do.

    Oh lol sorry. Yes exactly a name change and polish it up and it would have been fine.

    Everyone is allowed to have an opinion, so already your topic title warrants that you don't respect those that are different from yours. The word that's frequently used to describe a "fanboy" is defensive, and you are the definition of that in this very topic. Simmer, down.

    Hahahahaha only picking out the bad points I made and getting all worked up over those bad points as if I'm picking on MS = fan boy and should show why the title is what it is. Getting all worked up because I dont like some things, only seeing my bad points and not the praise I gave MS for the good points.
