what they need is a way to roll back the firmware. I remember hosing my device with an update last year which then they pulled back but not before inflicting severe damage to the batteries of some...

that is what happens when you show somebody a gimmick on camera. in reality once they get the device and realize the limitations of the amazon ecosystem they'll pick back their "other" phone.

I don't understand why the screenshot above looks like a demo app from an intern. can't MSFT do better than that?

Wednesday, June 4, 2014 - 4:19pm

if they had open up universal apps to any app hub dev, we'd have 4500.

Monday, June 2, 2014 - 2:37pm

I have to commend you on the set of articles. You raised the bar among the "hands on" sites which basically published a review based on taking the device to the park and then mailing it back to...

makes sense. why give everybody what they want in august so that the back to school season will be gangbusters with these 2-in-1 devices when we can wait for 2015 and let apple and google react. I...

Friday, May 30, 2014 - 10:52am

agreed. Instead of complicating it they need to simplify it.
8GB is the base minimum for windows and a pro device. This should be the only option for the i3 and i5s and then just allow for a...

I know what you're saying, but the economics just don't make sense at this level of device. It is too compact and too complex to made to order. It is produced in batches to keep prices down and...

to get two screens to work, you need to get a hold of an MST hub that is DP 1.2 compliant. With surface pro 2, this was not possible (even if they claimed it was). The device(s) I tried to use the...

this sentence sounds wrong

but in trade you get much better precision ("parallax"),

better precision is not parallax. Better precision is the lack of parallax. In other words, if a...

"Surface Pen needs three of them, a single AAAA and two watch-style batteries."

what da hell? are you serious? Am I supposed to be a CVS and stock all these damn battery types each time it...

broadwell will have a fan, so no. don't wait. broadwell is nothing but a 14nm version of the same chip.

the only fanless intel chips will be the atoms, get over it. Possibly the skylake...

do you want a 799 dollar xbox? didn't think so.

Saturday, May 24, 2014 - 1:11pm

given these are tablets made on batches, you'll never get a configuration tool. nobody will do that because these are not made on demand unlike laptops are. they would have to stock every SKU...

you can run android apps on the surface, so the last statement is not exactly true. the problem is MSFT needs to support android apps by implementing the java VM they run on. do this and suddenly...

plus it raises the price for google to make the same change by the same amount that the price dropped to the OEM. in other words, google would need to match the savings plus a bit more to get any...

"That thinness is almost exactly that of the Surface Pro 2, which one might charitably call both thick and slab-like"

I think you need to revise this sentence. did you mean to say almost "...

in other words they went for an accessory bus within the device spine which IMO was the right choice. Is this at the bottom of the device? this would mean you cannot use the cover. However if the...

Thursday, May 22, 2014 - 2:15pm

agree completely. if you want to blow the MBP away for less, just get an ultrabook with a similar chipset. surface just can't put that intel chip and remain power efficient due to the size and...

Thursday, May 22, 2014 - 2:11pm

it is not intended to be for you. If you want the best value, a bulky big ass laptop or fixed desktop will yield better performance and be upgradeable. nobody is debating that nor is their...

Thursday, May 22, 2014 - 2:07pm

off course not, and ultimately OSX cannot either. which is why surface has a leg up on the MBA and why apple basically is in the PC business as a legacy platform for OSX has no future. which...

Wednesday, May 21, 2014 - 1:08pm

nearly every pc monitor today is 16:9. are you saying these are not productive? because if 16:9 isn't for productivity, clearly you must then explain why there are virtually no cases where this is...

Tuesday, May 20, 2014 - 3:02pm

so do you still refer to this as surface pro 2.5? because it does NOT look like just a bigger surface as many predicted.

Monday, May 19, 2014 - 10:54am

you rarely rotate your phone. you should rarely rotate your tablet, if at all. There is just no need to. And when you do, it should be not a permanent activity hopefully.

While you see some...

MSFT has been talking ink for a decade yet SP doesn't even have a stylus slot....no wonder nobody cares for this.

Monday, May 19, 2014 - 10:51am

how about letting me pick a background color that isn't black. or better yet, how about just be on par with the 360.

Monday, May 19, 2014 - 8:12am

so I guess my docking station is now useless if I want to upgrade? because I don't see how I can slide a bigger device in there unless it isn't all that much bigger. There is maybe a few MM's of...

Friday, May 16, 2014 - 2:30pm

not to mention, MSFT already controls over 90% of the PC gaming market. Releasing halo for it will not hurt the console directly as correctly pointed, if some people are PC gamers, they are...

Friday, May 16, 2014 - 2:24pm

Paul, I hope you're not saying that Halo 5 undercuts windows...against what? linux? Check the steam statistics which are fairly reflective of gaming to see which platform needs help: windows or...

Wednesday, May 14, 2014 - 3:01pm

MSFT has made it as easy as it gets. The problem isn't the tools. Freaking xcode and android studio are the equivalent of a steaming pile of crap. The reason anybody bothers with the inferior...
