Windows 8.1 + Microsoft Account Commented on: 6 weeks ago (March 1, 2014)

Something else I think is worth mentioning is that the first account you create is also linked as an administrator account.

That's both dumb and bad for a variety of reasons. Last week...

I concur. My experience with all of the external WD products has been very poor over time. They overheat, they fail, and they are generally poorly made.

Paul, your first link in the article links to a file on your desktop. Thought you'd like to know!

Surface Pro 2.1? Commented on: 15 weeks ago (January 3, 2014)

The CPU Boss data for the 4300 looks wrong in the technicals (probably the reason for the perceived higher rating of the 4200, as they claim 4200 supports more memory types, which is wrong and...
