    After all of the updates,,,, My SB turned on in my bag!!!

    Well my SB turned on in my bag!!! I picked up my slipcase and it was warm. I knew right away the stupid SB was running in the case. I really thought we were past all of this now. Every other computer in the world can turn off and stay off with the lid closed. geez

    I noticed when my Hello camera does not turn on the infrared light is about half brightness.

    My Hello camera is not responding about 1 out of 30 times. I did notice that when this happens the infrared light is about half of normal brightness.

    Surface Book, video recorded my Son's Basketball game. It was awesome.

    Well I never thought I would use the SB as a camcorder. I put it on my lap, turned on video stabilization and it worked great while using my Nikon DSLR for still pics.

    Apples to Oranges

    New technology can be quite maddening. I have owned sp4 m3,sp4 i5, and Surface Book. They were all returned do to too many issues. I need my machines to be able to do real work and help me earn a paycheck. They need to turn and off, hold a charge, and not quit on you during an important...

    I seem to be getting better battery life with Hello and Cortana turned off. It may last me through the day now until MS comes up with a fix.

    SB - Hard to take quick handwritten notes in one note with clipboard attached.

    I am trying to get a feel for the daily use of the SB. While researching things I find it hard to jot notes with the pen with the screen attached without looking like a first grader did it. This where the sp4 kickstand shines and offers stability over the SB's wobbly screen. I guess that's what...

    Just some venting here, maybe someone from Microsoft is listening?

    First of all I am a long time Apple user and I must say my MacBook pros, ipads, and iphones, generally just work like they are supposed to.

    Half price type cover !

    I went to Best Buy with the intention to purchase the bright blue type cover. I did a double take when I saw they had 2 regular blue type covers open box for $65.00. So I couldn't see spending $65 extra on the bright blue one. Watch for deals!

    I think I may have a bad m3? I loose about 25% battery per hr with light web surfing with edge and nothing else open and screen at 50%. That's terrible. BB is out of the m3 I may get an i5 and see how it goes.
