Updates for the Microsoft Surface Pro and Pro 2 are great and mostly good for your device. However sometimes it doesn’t always goes to well. It happened to me today with my Surface Pro 2. I knew a firmware update was available and I forced an update check using the control panel on my Surface Pro 2. The download was amazingly fast and the Surface Pro 2 started automatically a restart to finish the update. When the Surface Pro rebooted the opening screen was the splash start screen with the Surface Logo but with a line underneath telling me not to turn off the Surface Pro since it need to Read more

I have been looking for the most perfect bag to carry my Microsoft Surface Pro 2 and extra gear along. Not too big and not too small, but with the right amount space and compartments. Well…the STM Velo 2 Small does seem to fit the bill. I have reviewed the Crumpler Moderate Embarrassment laptop bag a few days ago and this STM Velo 2 bag will give you a different experience. I will be looking at 11 inch bags soon to compare the usable space for the Surface pro 2 and its accessories. However, I am very impressed with the STM Velo 2 small laptop shoulder bag and this is Read more


Windows 8 has a great on screen keyboard but definitely can slow you down. The company Cootek from TouchPal already has a swiping predictive keyboard for the iPhone and Android phones. But Today they launched the first Windows 8 Predictive Slide Keyboard. If you are a previous Swipe user, you kind of know already what this keyboard will do for you. I have been using the beta version for awhile and just installed the final version and you are going to love it. In their press release they explain it nicely: TouchPal Keyboard runs on Windows 8 touchscreen tablets and any x86 based Windows 8 computer. Typing on a Windows 8 touchscreen device Read more


I really do love my Surface Pro and RT. But it has one small limitation. The build in kick stand can only be opened in one fixed position. The Surface Pro kick stand angle is already slightly adjusted compared to the Surface RT but again it is one position only. However I just got an accessory added to My Surface set up that just gives me a great extra flexibility in my viewing angle in two different ways. When I picked my Surface Pro last week a day after the release day (Blizzard Nemo 2103 conditions kept me at home) I also picked up the Microsoft Wedge Touch  Bluetooth Mouse (Surface edition). This great Read more


If you are travelling to the United States or if you live in the United states you realize that Mobile data comes at huge cost. Many get charged international roaming data costs or if you live in the United Sates you get charged overages. In some cases you even have to pay your carrier to turn on the hotspot functionality on your phone just to be able to share your current data plan with other devices. Many have asked me over the years what is the best dataplan to get. Well there is a new player in town. Until now Virgin Mobile  was the first choice I would let people know to Read more

I’m enjoying my Microsoft Surface RT very much except for the fact it doesn’t support Silverlight at all and Flash doesn’t work on certain websites. I really wondered why this was. But it seems that a specific XML file on your Windows 8 and Windows RT has a built-in white list to allow flash to be enabled on these sites. For me I couldn’t get to work one of my favorite sites in the Netherlands. However there is a tweak available right now that allows you to add your favorite flash enabled site to your white list. How to add your favorite flash enabled site to the white list on Read more
