Hopefully, you have your updates by now. My Surface RT updated immediately, but my Windows 8 Pro laptop did not. There are two ways to take care of it. Before I found the official way, I had previously simply uninstalled the problem app, and then went to the store, did a search and updated. Worked for me this time as well.

However, there is an official, buried way to do this. Found it here:

http://winsupersite.com/windows-8/windows-8-tip-manually-download-app-update

had no idea there was a way to check for other updates. It has happened often that I have known an update is available, but on one or another of my devices, no go. Now I will be checking this out regularly, even without news of an update.

Exactly. Music and Video got a big boost too. And while some are saying the changes were not significant, I beg to differ. Very nice changes.

Unlike others, I have no fear the Google/Calendar bit will be worked out later as well. We are in the middle of a big game of chess between these two companies and there will be more.
