Play Music and Create Playlists in Windows 8 Xbox Music App

Windows 8 includes the Metro UI Xbox Music app which can stream online music for you or play the music files stored in your computer. You can play individual or multiple audio files through Xbox Music app. However, we tend to make several playlists that have different combinations of songs depending on our mood. This tutorial will teach different possible ways to play your songs using the Xbox Music App.

COMING 2019 – COMPUTING CORPUS Active Network Hub (c) Phil Sigin-Lavdanski

Oh, please do not get me wrong. This new section is not about computers, electronics or any engineering stuff, but rather I am currently constructing a new corpus based on Spectrum, the monthly publication from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers USA, from July 2007 to date. Having been a member for over 20 years since 1992, I am always fascinated by some of the terms scientists use when they talk about or envision their new inventions or methodologies. How many of them eventually come into practice? Could there be some insights we could possibly derive, from the linguistics perspective?
