    Surface 4Pro and Chromecast

    Short answer, something might work, but not 100% and you might loose quality. Long answer: Edge has a cast media to device feature, it was never able to find my friends chromecast, and even if it work for you, protected content like Netflix or Hulu won't work. If what you want is casting your...

    Can we talk about battery life? Microsoft says "up to 9 hours"

    Although I find that *in laptop world* Apple has the bests claims when it comes to real life, MS doesn't do bad either. The point is when they say video playback or browsing, first they assume that you are using settings in default and the built in apps to browse and play videos, and boy can I...

    POWER ISSUE: cord attached but periodically stops charging

    Yeah, I feel your pain. My surface that I bought in June was having all kind of issues, and I had to send it to Germany via UPS, and because the closest UPS pick up point closes at 5 pm, I had to leave work earlier on a Wednesday to sent it, and they shipped on Friday, on weekend they couldn't...

    POWER ISSUE: cord attached but periodically stops charging

    I don't think so, because I had to sent the surface I just got back to MS I can't tell you, but k recall that someday I woke up and the battery was surely 100℅ charged and I put the surface somewhere else because the light was annoying me. Sent from my VIE-L09 using Tapatalk

    POWER ISSUE: cord attached but periodically stops charging

    Is difficult to know, but I would guess that it's a problem if the charger. The charger is really underpowered, and I found out that connecting a my phone to charge on the USB of the charger will makes the surface stop charging (light in the indicator going out). About the warranty you should...

    Poll Surface Pro 4, a very expensive frustation

    So a bit of an update, I sent the surface back to MS, it arrived today and waiting for news. I expect that they will replace it for a refurbished one. Just hope their refurbished quality control works. Sent from my VIE-L09 using Tapatalk

    Poll Surface Pro 4, a very expensive frustation

    So, by clean install I actually meant reinstalling windows with a recovery USB downloaded from MS. It might be hardware issues, but it just strikes me that there are just too many things going on, and it's too random for me to feel confident in blaming the hardware, and actually, with AU some...

    Poll Surface Pro 4, a very expensive frustation

    I ask myself, do people at Microsoft use their own products? Or they just use the Surfaces for the conferences and after that they go running back to their MBP? It really seams like the second one, yeah I understand that from time to time something might bug down and you might even need to...

    Wifi - Internet issue

    Mmmm this build is "feature ready" for the Windows Anniversary, but yet in bug fixing fase. One of the biggest problems (happening to me and I saw something about it on MS forums) is that sometimes the taskbar and other menus stop responding to touch or mouse click... Same with the notification...

    Wifi - Internet issue

    I think it's a driver problem... We all know that the network card on the Surface products are rubbish, but they should at least work. I had this problem when waking up the surface from standby / hibernation, the only thing that worked was disable the wifi adaptor and turn it on again. Since...

    Groove Music killi' the battery

    Hey Guys, So I have a SP4 i7 model, and since Windows 10 I'm really liking the own MS apps, like Edge. One app that I'm trying to use is Groove, that have improved a lot since xbox music. But something is annoying me a lot, since the normal windows build (I went to slow and now I'm on fast...

    Disappointed with IE (crashing and slowdown)

    Hey guys I'm new here, just bought a surface pro 3 i5 8gb ram. So, I explain my situation. I haven't had any windows laptop for years. On 0SX I stopped using Chrome because it's too much of a power hungry browser, the battery consumption compared to Safari was just too much. On Windows...
