Amazon Goes Stream-only for Video? Deprecates Offline Viewing App Commented on: 22 weeks ago (March 2, 2015)

There's zero chance of them doing the same with music. Besides the fact that the expected standard for music is to be able to play it offline, all of their music is sold in DRM-free MP3s. That...

Surface Power Cover First Impressions and Photos Commented on: 1 year ago (March 20, 2014)

I'm a touch typist, and I rarely need to look at my keyboard. But did you notice one of the words I used there? "Rarely." Rarely isn't never. Particularly if I work 90% from a desktop keyboard and...
