    Question for you guys

    A little background. I am an engineer that has a background in app development. Been spending months working on an original software for the windows store. It's meant to make the life of an engineer a lot easier. Well, recently, I've made another version of it. It is identical to the metro...

    No argument here. You should try the iPad.

    Type Cover 2 Availability

    I can't help but feel sorry for MS. For the first gen they made too many. For the 2nd gen they made too few. Doesn't look like they're getting any break.

    We are visiting my bf's sister. They're watching tv. Look what I saw. Yes, posting from a windows phone.

    You should be able to. I have an i5 toshiba laptop that I've been using for years. It looks like it's been through hell and back. But it works. I use it for everything, from microstation to adobe photoshop to visual studio. I'd be hard pressed to give it up now for something else.

    I kind of regret my Surface Pro 2 purchase & putting faith into Microsoft

    Isn't it possible an apple device is what you need right now? Like someone else said, we don't really have a problem with gripes. In the last week, I've started a thread with he word "gripe" in it. And it was for my gripes on metro API's. I just think it's silly to get rid of a proven...

    Apologies. I guess I do mention it a lot. I'll watch myself from now on. I'm just tired of bloggers speaking authoritatively on electronic reviews. And it usually is something like the iPad is the best thing ever. I started telling bloggers what I do because real world application of tech...

    So, are you saying getting rid of your proven work tools and move over completely to unproven ones at the same time is a good idea? Boy are you in for a surprise in life if you think this is the right attitude for your professional career. A couple weeks ago, someone posted here about their...

    I know we are not companies and can't afford to test out multiple devices. But I have never gotten rid of my work device(s) and move over completely to something new all at once. It's common sense.

    Surface 2 didn't want to turn on today

    Just know that this happens to all devices. I've seen this behavior in iPads, android tablets, and everything else.

    Is it worth spending $300,00 more?

    Haha, am I the only one who saw the comma in the title and thought holy cow $300k for electronic devices?

    another backlight bleeding thread...

    I knew what I said would be compared to something obvious, making what I said ridiculous. I've been noticing the blb ever since the technology first came out. I didn't think anything of it, but there were people that were crying up and down about it. So, I started to note down whenever I...

    Oh, don't get me wrong. I completely sympathize with your situation. But again, this is one of the reasons why companies test out new devices thoroughly before they get adopted. And remember that reviews are done mostly by bloggers (aka tech dummies pretending to know anything about...

    another backlight bleeding thread...

    Hm... I have the misfortune of falling in love with someone with OCD. When I introduce him to new food, he would try it with such a face that if you didn't know what he was trying (grain size piece) you'd think he was being forced to eat dog poop based on his facial expression. After a year...

    I didn't say you were a fanboy. I said it sounded to me like you had the fanboy mentality going into the surface. Regardless of how great the surface might be from the perspective of before getting it, your older device was a proven device for your purpose. By getting rid of your old, proven...
