Microsoft Owns the Domain SurfacePhone.com

Microsoft Owns the Domain SurfacePhone.com

As it turns out, Microsoft owns the domain SurfacePhone.com. You can check it out if you’d like. There’s nothing exciting there. It just redirects you to the Surface web site. Izzi from OneTechStop.net discovered this. OneTechStop.net is a friend to For the Love of Tech, but I have to disagree that this is confirmation that Surface Phone exists. Make no mistake, I believe Surface Phone exists. I also think that it’s not going to change…

Microsoft Rolls Out Major Fix for Surface 3 and Surface Pro 3

Today, Microsoft rolled out firmware updates for Surface 3 and Surface Pro 3. I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking, “Rich, why would a firmware update be a major update?” I’m glad you asked.

The Delusions of a Surface Phone

The Delusions of a Surface Phone

I’ve been hearing about it for as long as I can remember, or at least since Microsoft launched the Surface brand. The Surface Phone would be Microsoft’s entry into smart phone hardware. I suppose it’s only natural. When Amazon launched Kindle Fire, people asked for a Fire Phone. When Microsoft launched Surface tablets, people asked for a Surface Phone. Of course, that was 2012 when Surface Phone only meant Microsoft’s entry into mobile hardware. Surface…
