Then you are being lazy, because the term you are looking for is "handwriting recognition". The key term being "recognition".

Wednesday, August 20, 2014 - 7:02pm

Wait... so you would say that normal paper doesn't support handwriting?

Tuesday, July 8, 2014 - 2:53pm

I'm trying to figure out why you suggest at the top that merging Windows Phone and RT would be an end to Windows Phone. Would there not be phone-sized devices with cellular radios running the...

On the first screen, there's a link that says something like "Sign in to each app individually (not recommended)", and that allows you to do it.

Now that would make a lot of sense to have Lumia replace the RT side of Surface. But then "Surface Pro" would be a bit odd.

Then again, does the reporting suggest abandoning Surface as a...

Mine is already pulling off my cover. You know, why doesn't MS just put a slot in the Surface that the pen clip could slide into? Or something similar. I mean its there, why not use it?

Cosmetic scuffing generally isn't covered under any warranty, nor would I have expected it to.

Wednesday, June 4, 2014 - 6:52am

Paul, did you say anywhere what model you were given? (CPU/RAM/SSD). That would be nice information to add to this review.

Wednesday, June 4, 2014 - 6:40am

I rather doubt that will be the only reason to upgrade.

Here's an interesting question: If you and fellow Surface Pro 3 owners are sitting next to each other at a trade show, one you click your OneNote button, how many of them will enter OneNote mode...

Tossing? No. Integrating. If Update 1 was "tossing Metro" then they would be marginalizing it, not making it easier to use on a desktop.

I think there's still potentially a distinction to be made between adoption of the mobile environment as a whole and Firefox's version within that environment. Have people been seeking it out? Did...

"Microsoft says this is to save battery life, which is of course the point of this accessory."

But... is backlighting that big of a power drain? And if someone didn't like it, couldn't they...

Thursday, March 6, 2014 - 11:23am

Absolutely agree. On my Surface Pro 2 (which I disabled all scaling on), I will sometimes fit a snapped column for the Mercury Chat GChat client, Adobe Reader Touch for reading documents, and then...

I have more free OneDrive storage at this point than I know what to do with:

25 GB free + 20 GB Office 365 + 200 GB Surface (2 years) + 20 GB Enthusiast (1 year) + 3 GB Camera Roll Bonus

Saturday, February 8, 2014 - 8:17pm

You're right, of course. Slip of the mind.

Friday, February 7, 2014 - 7:48pm

How does using the taskbar in Metro interfere/interact with the bottom App Bar?

Tuesday, February 4, 2014 - 11:48am

Those might actually be the built-in folders, not the libraries.

Thursday, January 9, 2014 - 1:00am

If MS really wanted to track you secretly from Windows, their OS that they have complete control over, why would they need you to log in to anything?

Monday, December 23, 2013 - 5:28pm

It's not like they're keeping it a secret that its just for a year though.

Monday, December 23, 2013 - 5:24pm

It's much more likely to be the latter. There's no way they could do the former, because you don't get discrete bins, just a lump of space. Most likely you'll just get an "out of space, remove...

Is that why my Surface Pro 2's battery indicator recently went completely wonky? It's at 7%, but never increases even though it is clearly fully charged.

Monday, November 11, 2013 - 3:03pm

I had Zune installed on my W8 computer for a while, so I don't *think* its a compatibility issue. I finally uninstalled it though, so I can't verify now.

Tuesday, October 29, 2013 - 11:18am

You weren't lucky, people are just worried it will fall off there

Protip: The pen also readily attaches along the keyboard edge when the keyboard is disconnected.

Monday, October 28, 2013 - 6:10am

It's not entirely clear, but I think this is what is already released via WU, they're just putting it up as a manual download too?

Thursday, October 24, 2013 - 12:55am

I really like the new Type Cover 2, but I have a few issues with the trackpad.

1) Way too easy to accidentally trigger the side-swipes, which causes the cursor to jump around. Luckily this...

Tuesday, October 22, 2013 - 8:11pm

Just got my Surface Pro 2! Unfortunately, I can confirm that it comes with the old style power connector.

Monday, October 21, 2013 - 7:23pm

Except that a $500 laptop will have lower specs, be less portable, not take pen input, and have poor build quality.

Wednesday, October 16, 2013 - 4:32pm

Just out of curiosity... what does the term "full-length" mean in the context of an e-book? :-)

Friday, September 27, 2013 - 5:28pm

I actually don't think comingling is a bad thing. The first objective of these ads is to get people to stores or the online MS store. Those locations can educate people about the differences.
