    Ray you claim I don't have any credibility, meanwhile you make claims like the ones above, absolutely absurd remarks. All my comments are based on fact, I don't know what you're comments are based on.
    Once again, you prove precisely what I'm suggesting about comprehension etc.

    That statement reflects that your credibility will be diminished. It does not say that you have no credibility.

    Are you certain that you're ready for the challenge that you threw down?
    He doesn't have to be certain Ray, I am, and I know, I have all the devices. There are only a few where this doesn't apply, Adobe Photoshop is one.

    Probably != Definitely

    I know people who have no idea what their User Name(s) and/or Password(s) are.

    They rely on their devices to remember that info for them.
    When their device suffers a hardware failure, memory corruption or gets stolen, they have to start again from scratch.

    Also, note the use of the word probably.
    I did not say definitely.

    It seemed to me that is what you were saying, i.e. they will probably buy them again - that's a bit daft. ( As they say up north )

    I have all the devices.
    Great - you can regale us with pages gushing about the wonders of Surface Pro. Or did you mean you have all the Apple devices.

    It doesn't matter what you own, the Apps are tied to the user. If you're machine dies as long as you know your username and password just download again to the new machine.

    While I don't have a Surface Pro, I do have Windows 8 on 4 PCs and the Store would work the same. I buy an App once and download it to the other machines, I know, I've done it heaps of times.

    The same Applies to IOS and Android.

    Not doubting that. Just curious if you had a Pro - not yet, it seems.

    Microsoft still hasn't said when it'll come to Australia; they have that said it will be in Australia 'in the coming months', but haven't specified which year.

    Yeah not sure when it's going to hit OZ, if it had come out straight away I probably would have bought one. Now I'm not sure whether I'll get the Pro because by the time it comes out there'll probably be another one in the wings.

    I might even see what the OEM'S bring out over the next couple of months or see if they drop the price on the RT.

    Windows 8 now has the option to have a security question and what not to have Microsoft reset your password.

    Not to mention you can now have a touch password so its even easier to remember.

    And I have the device, I know what it can do. Everything is tied to your username/password and apps are designed to be deployed to every device a user has and sync via the cloud. Please stop spitballing fake information.
