    8.1 Bricked my Pro.

    Not literally, but functionally. The upgrade to Windows 8.1 has caused all of my important programs to stop functioning. I suspect it is security related, but the majority of corporate software, including the VPN client, Citrix Xenapp, and the company ERP no longer will run. It was the...

    iPad Mini

    The boss had to have one. Brought it in and I must say, what a worthless device. Screen is too small for a viable tablet. No voice ability and too bulky to be a good phone. Screen is okay, but not as good as my Droid Razr. At least the regular iPad is good for Youtube and ebooks. I can't see...

    Complaints with the Surface Pro

    So with about 48 hours of use so far, here are the main complaints I have; 1.) Stylus Storage. With other tablets, a stylus wasn't really needed, but with the SP there are some operations that are nearly impossible without the stylus - at least with my big fingers. The magnetic coupling is so...

    Hello All!

    Hello to all; I just got a Surface Pro and am running it through the paces. This is a full-circle situation for me. My first smart phone was a Windows CE based IPaq. It funny to remember all those who claimed that it was too big for a phone - though considerably smaller than a Galaxy S3...
