    I just read that MS released Mobile Office for iphone today - What are they thinking?

    I know iOS is a big market, but I think MS is really trying hard to fail on the mobile device front, at this point in the game. Office was something unique to MS Hardware, but now they gave customers another reason not to switch to MS devices. I know iphone is not the same thing as a Tablet...

    I am not sure if it is just my Surface RT, but whenever I need to use the backspace key either on the touch cover or the screen keyboard, and have to do repeated backspace keypresses by holding it down (Such as if you want to delete a line of text), it seems the Surface RT cannot keep up with...

    Why do email attachments take forever to download

    I am starting to notice how bad the surface is at downloading email message attachments. Everytime I get an email with an attachment, and want to forward or reply, I get a message that the email message needs to finish downloading first. Then the downloading can take anywhere fro 30sec to a...

    So we know X-Box controllers work, but are there any Bluetooth options so we don't need a wireless receiver sticking out of our Surface.
