    Best Custom power plan?

    So my son broke my trusty Surface pro, luckily I did the extend warranty plan so MS replaced it but not all my setting transferred over. I had a custom power plan that worked well but can;t find it. So what are the best options to change to get the most battery life? I've already adjust...

    Anyone waiting for the Manvex Surface Pro Cover

    That's cool was just curious, for me i paid for the MS warranty and have opted for ghost armour on the sides and back and a case to carry it when transporting it from place to place, but when used I have been fine with the kick stand and type cover by itself.

    Anyone waiting for the Manvex Surface Pro Cover

    Wondering what the point of this is? Seems to just add some bulk to the SP. I'm going with ghost armor for protection as opposed to a bulky cover. That's what i like about the Surface it is fully functional without the need for a bulk keyboard\cover

    Best Handwriting to text app?

    I tried in the free version and their is no option to convert handwriting to text that I could find. Wish their was maybe a 5$ app on the windows store that could do this, I'm not interested in going full on paid Office just for this one feature.

    Best Handwriting to text app?

    I've used the free one note, not the paid office. So is their no free app that can do this? Seems like a pretty simple thing but I'm not having much luck here, the free metro one note has no way to convert to text that I have found. Journal is a pain with the lasso stuff and after it's done it...

    New IMPROVED HD 4000 Graphics Driver on the way from Intel this week.

    The main issue is if you have auto updates and you install these drivers it will think you no longer have the March 28th hardware update, then it will reinstall the hardware update and remove the video drivers. You can turn that off but I'm not sure if installing the video drivers changes...
