    Which Windows tablet do you own?

    Yeah I was, at one point, close to upgrading my Surface RT to the Surface 2, but I never pulled the trigger on that. And the tide turned with my experience with the Acer Switch 11 that I bought. Turned out it had a defect -- it was turning off at random times, and this was confirmed by a...

    Is Microsoft on the right track with Windows 8.1?

    We're on a roll here!

    Is Microsoft on the right track with Windows 8.1?

    I keep all my backup hard drives in the vegetable crisper ... people generally don't think to look there, considering our obsession with fast food in America.

    Which Windows tablet do you own?

    Might as well keep this thread going... I know that just recently I was singing the praises about my original Surface RT, and trying to be objective, because I admit, it was never a tablet that was going to win any major performance awards, but I thought I'd mention that I decided I reached the...

    Which Windows tablet do you own?

    That's cool. Hey if you're happy with it then that's all that matters. It really doesn't seem so bad for the money. Honestly, I'm a big Paul Thurrott fan, but I think sometimes ... sometimes ... he can be a bit stubborn with his viewpoints. It helps to hear another side of the story. Looks...

    Solved I Want To See How This Forums Server Look Like

    I don't really back up to the cloud (I use external drives instead), but I have placed a lot of my day-to-day files in OneDrive. For the more sensitive, critical stuff (tax documents and the like) I still keep those on local storage. The best strategy would then be to keep yet another backup...

    Which Windows tablet do you own?

    That's interesting (regarding the Toshiba Encore). When I first read about it, Paul Thurrott had some criticisms he felt made the tablet not a good buy. You can see the article here: http://winsupersite.com/mobile/toshiba-encore-mini-first-impressions Any thoughts on that?

    Which Windows tablet do you own?

    I'm thinking that maybe the Surfaces are what Microsoft might think of (and what some tech pundits have called) as "aspirational devices." In other words, it's something that's built really well, pretty, free of crapware and is something that just gets people to walk in the door, ooh and awe...

    Microsoft's new OS reinvents MS-DOS for mobile

    In an odd way that looks really cool. :)

    Microsoft's new OS reinvents MS-DOS for mobile

    It was my understanding that it was real but also an attempt at humor. I have no phone to test it on. But yeah, sometimes the GUI just gets in the way. That's why the other day I wrote my first PowerShell script to automate the copying of some files. It's a really simple one, but I decided I...

    The Surface family expands with the Surface 3

    Yeah, I hear ya. I ended up biting the bullet and bought one (keyboard) for my Surface RT a couple months ago, but I have to admit I am very fond of the darn thing. But because of that very reason, the price, is why I didn't buy one initially. Well, that, and the fact that at first I just...

    Beware the Germans

    Well, as long as I don't see something that says "ATM PIN sniffer redirection daemon" I'm happy. :)

    Which Windows tablet do you own?

    Yeah, no matter how you slice it, and as much as I like my Surface RT, I'm looking forward to a speed increase in whatever I upgrade it to. That and increased screen resolution, and maybe a couple other things. But honestly, the quality of the Surface RT screen is great, even though it's only...

    Beware the Germans

    Heh. :) "We understand Homer. After all, we are from the land of chocolate!" "Mmm ... the land of chocolate ..." :drool:
