    Bluetooth

    I am using a JBL flip speaker and apple magic mouse, and they both reconnect after log in. My previous bluetooth keyboard did not always work and I had to push the power button to startup the surface, but once it started up my keyboard started at the same time.

    Surface Pro returned to Best Buy

    Hey, OP here. So, I actually have another surface pro that I have been using for the past 2 weeks, and I wish to retract all of my previous comments, and say now that this machine is absolutely killer. Here's how I went about fixing most of my issues: First and foremost Battery life: There...

    SimCity on Surface Pro?

    I'm assuming you downloaded the origin beta, which you mentioned in your post. I installed it, set the graphics to low and everything is running. Since they fixed the server issues, I have absolutely no problems whatsoever. Have you right clicked the .exe file and changed the compatibility...

    Surface Pro returned to Best Buy

    Two other notes: I had mentioned this earlier, but the windows App Store needs help, which i think will come eventually. And two, I constantly had wifi issues with my surface. Whether it wouldn't pickup my router, or it would drop the connection. A third, bonus item the one thing I miss most...

    Surface Pro returned to Best Buy

    Well, after a week of very heavy usage, I decided to return the surface pro to best buy today. If anyone recalls, I'm a long time Mac user who purchased an SP128. I didn't expect it to be a replacement for my MBP retina, nor for my iPad mini which stays by my bed for quick email answering and...

    cloud picture service

    I forgot about your other requirement, which is to show pics on your panny tv. My panny has Flickr on the Viera cast, but I also have an Apple TV, which you can actually do airplay mirroring from either a Mac, an iOS device, or even the surface pro as long as you have airparrot. So, I can show...

    cloud picture service

    Not sure if you use iPhoto and photostream, but here's my setup: I have a Mac mini server that holds my iPhoto library. I use a Nikon D5100 with an eye-fi card and automatically uploads all pictures when connected to my wifi network. So if I'm out shooting and I come back, I simply leave the...

    Surface impressions from a ling time Mac user

    This is really an amazing forum, I have to say I'm very impressed with all the tips and support. I was actually able to get mail up and running, but funnily, it can only send, but not receive mail. I also was able to get my contacts to sync and my calendar. It's one way only, but that's no...

    Surface impressions from a ling time Mac user

    Thanks for both your responses. I had to look into getting this site working within IE, another windows quirk, but now that I have, I'll actually have paragraph breaks between my text, novel idea... In any event, I think the wifi issues are because my house is about 4000 sf, and I use two wifi...

    Outlook 2010 and Surface Pro

    Yep, it qualifies. I bought Outlook 2010 in October, and got an email saying I was eligible for a 2013 upgrade.

    Surface impressions from a ling time Mac user

    I've used Macs since college, in other words, a while ago. I have an iPad and an iPad mini, and my primary machine is a Retina MBP. It was a near flawless transition from PCs to Macs 20 years ago, however, the transition back hasn't been without it's "quirks". Let me start with saying I am now...

    Outlook 2010 and Surface Pro

    The only snag to 2013 is that it doesn't work with exchange 2003. I know, I know, but my company is migrating next year, so I installed 2010 and have no issues. Yes it's not touch friendly but, it's not bad with a mouse and keyboard.
