    No iTunes Metro App For Windows 8

    Although Apple was happy to provide the iTunes app for the PC version of Windows 8, the Cupertino-based company would rather not help its rival in the profitable tablet market where iPads dominate. “You shouldn’t expect an iTunes app on Windows 8 any time soon. Apple iTunes to Microsoft...

    And so it begins

    I'm shocked I tell you. Read: http://www.surfaceforums.net/forum/showthread.php?t=3026 Just remember...you're on the Surface fan boy site. Most replies start with '..the RT isn't intended for Enterprise use'. Horse crap... Something isn't quite right with the WiFi, and with respect to...

    Surface RT Sync With Exchange Account "Unavailable"

    No, you still don't get it. You can...and read carefully...use Office RT on the Surface RT for commercial purposes if you have an SA license for Office 2013 for the user. This is spelled out very clearly by Microsoft. I said nothing about installing Office or Outlook. READ the link...

    Surface RT Sync With Exchange Account "Unavailable"

    J515OP, As a Moderator, I would expect more due diligence when your replies imply you have knowledge of a specific area. You have been consistently wrong on licensing. I suggest you do a search on 'Surface RT Companion VDA' and Software Assurance'. Microsoft has several documents from Sept...

    Surface RT Sync With Exchange Account "Unavailable"

    Found the solution. It required a packet sniffer and several settings changes to the RT to resolve. Not an access point issue. Not an Exchange policy issue. First, I disagree with the assertion that the RT is unsuitable as a companion device in the Enterprise, when a full PC is also...

    Low Battery Shutdown Without Warning - Default - Seriously?

    I'm familiar with Outlook. We run it on thousands of PCs. I also read a lot. You keep deflecting the point, which is...even the cheapest Smartphone successfully and reliably syncs mail, contacts, and calendars with Exchange. This is a fail on Microsofts part. My guess is it will get fixed...

    Low Battery Shutdown Without Warning - Default - Seriously?

    That tells me nothing. RT and Pro both have Mail and Messaging. Nothing in that list steers me to Pro for sync with Exchange. In fact, I'm guessing the Pro will be released with the very same Mail and Messaging App...the list would indicate this.

    Low Battery Shutdown Without Warning - Default - Seriously?

    Yep. The footnote is for OfficeRT. It says nothing about the Mail App. 2 different things.

    Surface RT Sync With Exchange Account "Unavailable"

    Sad, really. I had my PC group buy just one to evaluate it for just that reason. We're a Microsoft shop. Microsoft promised more, fell short, and have assembled the requisite fanboys to defend their short comings. I still do like the the basic Office capabilities, which for most would be...

    Surface RT Sync With Exchange Account "Unavailable"

    So, what environment is the RT supposed to be used in? I have $199 Android devices in use everyday syncing with Exchange and running Enterprise specific native Apps. Same for IPads. For sales reps, service techs, and field supervisors..they perform well. Put an OtterBox on them, and they are...

    Low Battery Shutdown Without Warning - Default - Seriously?

    So I'm in the middle of typing a response to a thread, when the Surface shuts down due to low battery. No warning. Then I find this: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/surface/forum/surfwinrt-surfusing/displaying-a-popup-when-battery-is-low/8df16bcc-464c-44a2-8b81-20efef44ed47?page=1...

    Surface RT Sync With Exchange Account "Unavailable"

    Thx! I did review the thread previously. Certificates aren't the problem. I can connect...I've sync'd before numerous times. The problem is consistency. All day today, it wouldn't sync reporting "xxx@yyy.com is unavailable". Then, 30 minutes ago, it started working again. In a few hours...

    Surface RT Sync With Exchange Account "Unavailable"

    I really want to like the Surface RT. Sync with Exchange Server works 10% of the time. Most times, it comes back "xxx@xxxxxx.com is unavailable". Randomly, it will work. Very frustrating. My iPad, Nexus 7, and iPhone sync flawlessly with the same server/account. I'd use OWA in the interim...
