    Surface on TV

    Barry is using a Surface Book 2 in "Barry" Chapter 5 "Do Your Job." Maybe some other episodes as well, but that is as far as I have gotten in the series and wasn't looking for the Surface devices in the previous 4 :)

    Surface on TV

    I have been seeing a lot more Surface devices in my travels lately, I think that will increase with the new releases and the holiday season approaching. Of course if you are a fan of NFL football, you see them everywhere since Surface became the official device of the NFL

    Wired vs wireless headphones. Your preferences?

    Those are really intriguing. If I didn’t like my Sony so much I would wait for those. Let us know what you think of them once you have tried them for a bit

    Wired vs wireless headphones. Your preferences?

    I ended up returning the Beats Studios that I had mentioned getting on sale in an earlier post and picking up a pair of newly released Sony wh-1000xm3’s instead. Love these. Good sound, comfortable, excellent noise cancelling, long battery life, USB-C port for recharging. Very happy with them.

    Solved Two problems I have with my 6 month SB2

    Definitely try the 5ghz channels. I don't know if Netgear has finally fixed the issue, but I returned mine because, among other issues, they had a buggy 2.4ghz channel. I also didn't feel it had very good range through my home and that the bandwidth degraded quickly. I recently switched to Eero...

    Wired vs wireless headphones. Your preferences?

    Why preferably the Beats if you don't mind my asking? The reason for my question is that I recently picked up a pair of the Beats Studio 3 on a good deal at Best Buy, $100 off to replace an older set of headphones. But even at $249, I am having a hard time convincing myself that I like them...

    Wired vs wireless headphones. Your preferences?

    Wireless is my choice, because I am generally moving from room to room too much to worry about wires. Out of the house I actually like the Air Pods because they are small, the case recharges them and they work well for pausing the music when you pull one out and for hands-free calling. In the...

    I can't get my Pro to scroll sideways with two fingers

    In that case have you gone into Device Manager and removed the HID-compliant touch screen drivers and restarted the machine? Upon restart the Surface Pro should download and re-install the drivers.

    Will there be a Surface Book 2

    Well, everyone has their own utopian idea of what a device should be, I suppose. But the reality is that they all make compromises and the closest you will get is finding a device with the compromises you best feel you can live with. That is odd that Amazon has no reviews though. Neither does...

    Surface Pro Power Supply

    I often work with it out on the couch in the evenings, with the wife and dogs, while watching TV with varying degrees of interest. As long as I get done what I need to get done that night, all is good :) I do the same sometimes, sitting out on the deck or patio at nights, while listening to...

    Porsche Design Book One

    No worries. I thought maybe you took what I said as a negative about Quanta. They are just another builder, not terribly different from the others in the market :) I believe everything sold through Microsoft has the same 30 day return policy. Try it for awhile and live with it for a month...

    Surface Pro Power Supply

    That’s exactly the setup I would like as well :) I would use the computer bag one out on the deck or patio so I didn’t have to keep plugging and unplugging the one from between the couch and coffee table Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Hello from UK

    Welcome binwolf! I am new to the Surface world, having owned mine about a month and therefore not a great source of tips. But I figured I would say hi :)

    Porsche Design Book One

    Correct. Quanta has among its customers Apple, Dell, HP, Allienware, Lenevo, Toshiba and others. The comment wasn't intended as a knock on Quanta, just saying that German design, just like Apple's Designed in California, only goes so far and then it is one of about 4 companies manufacturing...

    Will there be a Surface Book 2

    Yeah, I know I mentioned something in the thread about how unfortunately only the design is German / Porche and likely only the externals at that. Otherwise manufactured in Taiwan by Quanta Computer. So, beneath that skin deep beauty and design, probably a rather generic design inside. Seems...

    Will there be a Surface Book 2

    Have the reviews of the PD One been poor? I haven't been following them since the release. That sure is a beautiful design though.

    Will there be a Surface Book 2

    It seems, at least from that Forbes article, the goal is for the Surface Pro, to be the sole 2-1. That is of course, if the article is proven to be accurate. It looks like the Surface Book would become an entry level 13.5" clamshell, aimed at students, etc. Which would lead me to wonder if...

    Will there be a Surface Book 2

    According to a recent article in Forbes, they suggest that the Surface Book will become a traditional 13" clamshell, rather than compete with the Surface Pro. If this is true, perhaps it is the end of the line for the 2-1 Surface Book as we know it?
