Hi Peter

That must be a quick review missing the obvious. As Dan mentions, you can connect it as a simple USB drive.

But the really smart way is to use OneDrive as John does. Once signed up (a one-time task), you don’t have to do anything else than taking the pictures. Minutes after, I can access the pictures at _any_ workstation I am logged on to – just like that.

As far as I know, OneDrive will connect to Macs as well:

From a review of the Lumia 950 ...

If you want to get the photos from the phone to your computer, the easiest way to do it is by taking out the micro SD card from the phone and by using a card reader. This is also the easiest way to move music from your computer to the SD card. Otherwise, it’ll be really annoying to move files back-and-forth from the phone, especially if you are using a Mac."

Hi Shamil

To my knowledge, Cortana is for a limited selection of languages only which – at least – doesn’t include Danish, so I can’t use ”her” as I don’t want to set up the phone for UK or US.
That said, my life isn’t really that complicated that I need a butler to stay clear of trouble, so I don’t miss the feature, except that it could be fun.

Hi Gustav --

I have got purchased Lumia 950 today with Win10.

Do you use Cortana and if yes how do you set it (her?) up?
It doesn't speak Russian (and as far as I see it doesn't speak Danish language too), and to activate it to speak/recognize English I have to setup my region as UK or US, but if I'll do that I can loose my Win Store accounts etc.... sounds very weird - am I missing something?

Thank you.
