    So I'm thinking about selling my Surface Music Kit (The "Remix Blade/cover".. the app automatically installs when you attach the Blade to a Surface 2 (RT), Surface Pro, or a Surface Pro 2. I don't own a Surface any more, and kinda need the money, so...

    Problem is, I don't see any for sale anywhere on the internet, and I don't know how much to ask for it. The device was never sold retail; only a limited number were made. Microsoft had only two contests (that I know of) where these were given out as prizes. Yes, I won the thing during the #projectremix contest a while back on Twitter/Vine.

    So this device is kinda rare, which makes me think maybe I should keep it, as maybe it'll be worth something one day, or on the other hand, it might just end up some old outdated computer hardware that nobody wants.

    What do you guys think? Should I sell it? And if so, how much do think I should ask for it?

    EBay auction, and put a minimum. Since you got it for free, you win anyway.

    If it works on a Surface Pro it will work on any Surface Pro so I don't get what you're saying.

    The simple thing is technology agrees but unique things like that will be worth money. Probably quite a bit.
    what im trying to say is that you might know if it will work for the next generation service ( ie the power cover) so people are going to upgrade their surface 2 to a surface pro 3 or 4 (assuming). less and less people are going to use it so It might be worth less. I don't know if this made any sense at all :/

    To give you an. idea. I'll give you the statistics since both you and fire29 seem to have the same problem of taking two minutes and looking something up.

    The palace of Versailles is 7 hectares. The gardens at Versailles is 800 hectares.

    Of course I didn't see everything in one day. It's simply too big.

    It was however a lot of walking regardless.

    I don't see a reason for them to change the connector. Doesn't mean it wouldn't happen but why bother when it works?

    Probably the best thing for Ed to do is ask MS what the device is compatible with and sell it like that. He could ask about the price as well. It's a hard to sell something without knowing it's value.

    So I bought a USB cable yesterday for my phone's charger and it is cyan colored. Goes well with my cyan Lumia. It's only 6 to 8 inches shorter than the original cable that came with the box.

    Ed I did some research for you.

    I found this - Microsoft Surface Music Kit (Music Blade and app) | Microsoft Surface Forums

    LOL!

    However, being serious now. I saw that on eBay last year that they sold between $179 and $299. Not sure how serious you are about selling it but I think you'll get a good price for it. Also as suggested put a minimum price for what you want for it.

    My initial suggestion of contacting MS still stands to ensure what it is compatible with so you can market it correctly.

    Morning folks. So I saw my grades yesterday and I was floored. I somehow got 2 A's this semester. It raises my GPA to 3.818. Not sure how that happened, but I'll take it...

    Seriously though, Sony needs to launch the adapter for the SWR50. Mine looks really off with all this lint and spots that look worn down. I'm wondering if they used a different style silicone for the bands on this as opposed to the ones in the SWR10. I've seen pictures of the adapter and while some people think it looks ugly, to me it'll go really nicely with the bands from the G Watch I'd been using.

    This is the problem with some of these OEMs that they haven't learned from Apple. Even though I'm not a fruit stand guy, they set the experience up really well. They sell their own watchbands, yet they have the options to choose from readily available. Of the gen1 Android Wears, the SWR50 is in the top 4, along with the G Watch R/Ubrane, and still the Moto 360. Yet Sony still keeps thinking its somehow this premium brand that can sell hardware on its own an consumers will put up with slow roll outs easily...

    As much as I've outgrown Samsung products, at least they're copying the right parts of Apple - make the stuff simpler to use and bake features in people will use.

    Here in the hood, you see a ton of Apple and Samsung. You'll see the mid level LGs, Blu, and some of the popular low end guys like Kyocera. You'll see HTC too. It is amazing to just travel by public trans and see what people use as phones. I'll go from seeing a ton of Samsung's on the bus, to hit NJT and MTA where I see more of an even split between Sammy and Apple. You see a lot of S5, S6/S6 Edge, Note 4, S3, Note 3 and Note 4 edge. From Apple you'll see from iPhone 4 onwards. Lot more iPhone 6 and a few 6+. Bulk of the iphones I see are 5s, 5c, and 4s.

    I've seen a few LGs in the wild - usually G2s and N5s as high end, but also a few G Flex 1s and mostly L7/L9s. I see mostly M7s and Desire 816s from HTC. I've seen the ocassional Xperia Z. I've see a Z Ultra and some 1+1s too. I have seen some OG Moto X too.

    Again, very interesting seeing what people use these days. I suppose that's why I like the fact that my gear goes under the radar.

    lol thanks Rue.. I forgot about my posts on the "surface forums".

    I could use the money, yes, but not that bad. My laziness will most likely prevail, and the device will probably remain collecting dust on my shelf. Who knows, maybe one day, I'll be able to show my grandkids a piece of "digital music creation history".
