    Just checked for updates and got a 2/4/16 update. I just rebooted after installing. Interesting that an update came in..

    It sorted itself out. I guess it was just making sure the reboot logic path was in order ;)

    The following update will be listed as “System Firmware Update – 2/4/2016” when you view your update history.

    • Surface UEFI update (v1.51116.78.0) recalibrates touch panel.
    • Surface Touch Controller Firmware update (v4.251.60.0) recalibrates touch panel.
    • Surface Platform Power Driver update (v2.1.36.1) improves charging.

    My Credit Card charging is much faster now ... D'Oh ;)

    Got the update as well. Then it rebooted and mentioned it couldn't install the update. Let's do another restart.

    Yeah, I needed to reboot again as well. Says it installed successfully this time. I'll report back on the charging speed, but what's all the recalibration stuff supposed to help with? Touchscreen responsiveness? Touchscreen speed? Touchscreen accuracy????
