Microsoft’s Big Bang Hardware Event will be October 6

It’s official. Microsoft has sent out invitations to the “Big Bang” hardware event on October 6.

In fact, almost nothing is known about Microsoft Band 2, except for the fact that it will still run only firmware and not Windows 10 Core. Surface Pro…

Microsoft vs Apple Part 21: Windows 10 vs iOS 9

Microsoft vs Apple Part 21: Windows 10 vs iOS 9

This is actually a third part in a series of videos I made called “Battle of the Betas”. The first was Windows 10 vs Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan. The second was Windows 10 Mobile vs iOS 9.

Have a look:

AT&T will Offer LTE Surface 3

AT&T will Offer LTE Surface 3

Yesterday, I called up AT&T to cancel two lines of service. I canceled my Mi-Fi hotspot, which I never used. I also canceled a tablet line, which was under contract (long story) but no more, despite the fact that I haven’t even used the line in 500 years. I told them I’d love to keep the line and get a Surface 3 LTE if they sell them, trying to see if I can get the…

By Rich W Woods When I first purchased the Surface Pro 3, I bought the Core i5 model with 8 GB RAM and a 256 GB SSD. As soon as I ran Photoshop, I realized that something was wrong with my PC. Drivers crashed and things just went wrong. I took it into the Microsoft Store and I’ll never forget what Charles (the Microsoft Store technician) said to me: “There comes a time in a…
