    Goodbye to the Surface Pro - and the Forum

    Hey guys, I'm out. Like many of you, I bought my Surface Pro on day one. But I'm getting rid of it. The reason has nothing to do with the Surface - a beautiful piece of hardware if I've ever seen one. And a fine machine, when used as a PC. And if they ever get more of the truly first-rate...

    MikeGyver Surface Car Adapter Not for Pro

    Interesting. Sounds like they made a mistake, and are trying to correct it. I respect that. That would make me more inclined to order from them in the future, if, of course, they're selling quality gear. Thanks, Russ.

    Cannot "pinch" screen to make easier to see

    You may be trying it with software or apps that don't do that. And unfortunately, most don't. Here's an idea: launch Internet Explorer from the start screen. Then try it. That should work. That's an example of a program (or app) that allows pinch-resizing. Try pictures. That does it too...

    Recently there was a bank robbery here in DC that failed, because the robber couldn't spell. He wrote on the note 'all mona' and the teller didn't know what he wanted and turned him away. He tried again, failed again. Police say robber tried, failed to rob two banks three blocks apart -...

    I didn't realize you couldn't change the title of a thread after you create it. Anyone know why? Is it a software issue with the type of forum we have here? Or is it an administrator decision? None of my business, really. But it would explain a lot.

    5 in 1 Surface Adapter - Legit!

    FYI - those photos show an RT. The Surface Pro's configuration will have the adapter on the opposite side, and somewhat lower. Just sayin' Thanks for posting. They show what it truly looks like. As I've posted, it's a beautiful add-on, which works great, and it very, very inexpensive.

    surface causing tennis elbow?

    I would give serious consideration to your observations. I once started having pain in my knee...just the right knee. No idea why, but it hurt so bad! I finally tracked it to my 6-month old Audi TT Roadster. Turns out, being over 6 feet, the 'pivot,' when I opened the door, spun around...

    Surface Pro Performance?

    I use two i7 machines, a newer Sony VAIO and a brand new Dell XPS, both with 8GB RAM. Gotta say, the Surface smokes 'em.

    Note taking app needed

    If you want something very, very basic...but something that spans all platforms, try Google Keep. If you've never heard of it, it's because it's brand a month. It's no One Note, and it's no Evernote, either, But it is simple, free, and works...

    Surface RT is a Step Forward!

    Well, it's physical design is different as you know. Thinner, and lighter. And it comes with free Office 2013, which is a huge asset. Battery would probably get me coast-to-coast. Don't care about a stylus, so that's fine too. And yes, I have a Pro. But there are times I might want to just...

    Surface RT is a Step Forward!

    I have a Pro, but I really, really want to get an RT too. Nothing wrong with having one of each, right? And my daughter, who is not, and has never been a fan of tablets, really liked the RT. I notice that the RT is holding its price point pretty well on, the 64GB is $599. on...

    Just for grins: Surface Protection Plus

    Excellent! I mean, my Surface is made of Vapor MG, a liquid metal magnesium compound. So apparently, I'm not covered. But, those folks who own the Surface Concrete, or the highly-sought-after Surface Steel, or even the eco-friendly Surface Wood, I bet they'd be delighted to hear about a...
