Windows Phone Surges in Europe Commented on: 1 year ago (October 1, 2013)

Indeed. My teenage son (we are living in the UK) has a Lumia 520 and total spend for phone hardware + running costs works out about $10/month (spread over 2 years).

Surface 2 Specifications Commented on: 1 year ago (September 24, 2013)

Let me get this right. A tablet costing up to $2000 has a 720p camera, imaging at a resolution that would make an iPad 4 owner (or even Surface 2 owner) ROFL. Shurely shome mistake.

Surface 2 Pricing Commented on: 1 year ago (September 24, 2013)

Surface Pro 2. Surely no need for the 64 GB model. 128GB priced at least $129 more than equivalent 11" MBA (everyone needs a keyboard right) without the +$100 8GB RAM option. Courageous decision...
