    Shame on Microsoft - that are rendering RT unusable

    No - no updates for well over a year now - the only updates are to many apps which stop working then the newer versions n won't load saying they are incompatible. Its only a matter of time until the Surface RT becomes a tablemat. I am just hoping the Netfix app will keep working for some time...

    Shame on Microsoft - that are rendering RT unusable

    No I have not - I did not even know it existed until your note - will give it a go today and report back - thanks - still very unhappy with Microsoft though as many other apps no longer function. They seem to want RT to simply go away - they could at least help it shuffle off by supporting a...

    Shame on Microsoft - that are rendering RT unusable

    With no proper support for RT anymore those like me who have a Surface RT are finding that one by one apps are starting to fail and cannot be updated. One of the reasons for getting the RT was to be able to use Skype on the move but now even this basic app does not work any more and the new...

    Can't install from store

    Has anyone changed their battery on an RT

    After just over 2 years my RT battery is going down faster then ever and now barely lasts a day - has anyone attempted to change theirs - there are many videos on u-tube which make it look easy - but is it? Your experiences may help me decide if its worth trying. :)

    Google Search App stopped working

    On my Surface RT I have been using the google search app until last night - now it has stopped working. The app appears to be OK in that I can input search by keyboard or voice but then the searches say there is no internet connected- but there is and all other apps function fine including...

    wake up problem returns -agggg

    Having had my rt for almost 2 years, at one stage I went through the "won't wake up after sleeping" issues which eventually calmed down and rarely happened. Over the past 2 weeks, the surface did a load of updates and now the problem has returned -but much worse than ever. Now virtually EVERY...
