Micromax's Windows Phone plans on track http://toi.in/U-TGkZ

Jas00555 says:

Please talk about DirectX 12, it sounds pretty awesome.

Sam Sabri says:

Ha ok! That stuff will probably be above the heads of Dan and I. We'll see if Jay can glance over the info real quick since he'd have a better chance of understanding it. 

Jas00555 says:

Awesome! The whole "all Microsoft products" sounds very interesting. DirectX 12 on WP8.2 or 9 could be pretty cool.

Moodi1520 says:

how will Windows Phone use the advantages of the new DirectX12? sorry for my English

Jas00555 says:

I would assume the same way that it takes advantage of DirectX now, but better.

Khyz says:

Well about wp8.1, with all the messaging apps im still wondering hows skype gonna improve, still no able to send pics on chat, the keyboard cant be change to horizontal, and still slow as... Besides that seems the most complete. The build in mssg app is the best for me, quick and to the point... Is that changing?

husam2277 says:

It is been very long time since last podcast... Mmmm tease something 8.1 ;)

Talbot690 says:

Anyone know if snapchat stores photos after they have been deleted. Thinking about the whole thing it probably wouldn't be very hard for them to just take whatever your sending and store it somwhere

crooza says:

cybrtitan says:

Nope. Only if you ask us in the forums :)

please talk about mozilla abandoning the winRT platform and how will microsoft pitch winRT at build given it took the VLC guys basically a year to work around the limitations of winRT and mozilla just gave up.

Jas00555 says:

Come on, dude. VLC had to rewrite their entire audio stack multiple times and there's 8 million lines of code. Give them a break. They're way understaffed for the huge undertaking. I mean, hell, the Android app has been in beta for like 3 years.
Plus, Mozilla said it had nothing to do with with WinRT, it was the adoption rate. Plus, as Paul Thurrott pointed out, when you use an OS, you generally use the default, like iOS and Safari, so its not a surprise that Modern Firefox didn't catch on.

neonspark says:

two stories: FF and VLC. both hugely popular x86 apps suddently struggle to make it to winRT. I have nothing but praise for the devs, but MSFT better start preaching miracles at build since after mozilla abandoned winRT, a lot of devs are questioning if this API isn't a dead end MSFT dug and will end up abandoning.

BTW Thurott doesn't have a freaking clue in life. Both mozilla and google have been very critical of MSFT for IE can tap into APIs that store devs cannot and survive certification. Basically MSFT couldn't create IE as a store app if it had to get it to the same standards they are asking of mozilla and google. If not winRT, then at least offer a win32 compatible interface for store apps that can be first class citizens in the "metro" world, but retain all their win32 parts. All this needless refactoring just to work around the inmature winRT isn't helping.

Sameer Beri says:

Can u plzz tell me that Official VLC media Player is coming to Windows Phone or not...?

Jas00555 says:

Yes it is. VLC has already confirmed it.

Sameer Beri says:

Can u plzz tell me the date when it would release...?

Jas00555 says:

I'm assuming you're talking to me. No, i think they're waiting for BUILD for the API changes to begin development them.

Sameer Beri says:

Thanks for reply...

Ma Rio says:

Why does it have to overlap with Monstercats livestream :D

God damn it what to do now?

bigmickc22 says:

I want to know if I should upgrade my phone now to a 1020 or hold off for the release of the WP 8.1 handsets? Any more info on Martini?

Muessig says:

I'd be interested to see you guys chat over WP OS and wearables.

rodan01 says:

Is posible a Surface RT with 1gb ram and 16gb storage for $200-$250?

Binson#WP says:

As a Surface user, I'm afraid 16GB storage would be extremely crippling.  Also, they discontinued the original RT 32GB.  My girlfriend had an issue with her RT 32GB and they replaced it with an RT 64GB. 

rodan01 says:

Windows 8.1 update 1 officially supports 16gb of storage, the OS uses less space, so there is more free space for the user.

ebzrascal says:

nizzon says:

Um... where is the livefeed?

8XSD says:
