    That nice it would be nicer if you brought a Surface 2 to go with the ring. ;)
    We got engaged a few years back now. The ring is significantly more expensive than the Surface 2. Not sure they really 'go together'. :P

    Honestly, I'm seriously considering a Surface 2 Tablet. More for my wife than me as she doesn't like to carry a laptop around and it has full Office which she uses a lot. We can then have two tablets. :)
    Why would you choose it over an 2520? I'm not really up to date, but I think I read somewhere that the 2520 is faster and has the possibility of inserting a SIM card?

    Well, the ring is basically just the international: "Keep your dirty hands off me, I'm married!" sign, with a Surface you can at least watch Youtube videos! ;-)

    Well, the app that's been mentioned in my sig is now available beta testing, anyone interested?

    It's an app based on my band Marigold. :)

    The Surface 2 has the more powerful SoC Tegra 4 than the 2520 Snapdragon 800 even when it clock 500MHz more speeds not as essential and it only a small increase.

    The 2520 isn't coming out until next year. It's more expensive. I don't need the SIM card functionality. I can always just tether to my phone if needed.

    I like the build and quality of the Surface 2. As for the 'faster' bit, we'll is it that significant?

    Same for me the build quality amazing!

    And the Tegra 4 SoC more better than the snapdragon 800.

    Tegra 4 more optimised for tablet bring excellent performance and has the better graphics.

    As I said, I just read that somewhere. I don't know.

    Well, I tested the Surface RT in a store and I just wasn't amazed by it. It felt boring and useless. So maybe that's another reason why I have some negative feelings towards the Surfaces.

    I absolutely hated the first Type Cover, the second one is better, but not nearly as good as my Macbook Air keyboard.

    And let me guess - they complained about the weather, just like the rest of us? :P

    You still in Ontario? I've spent some time there (two years in various places - Hamilton/Stoney Creek, Burlington, London, Leamington, Subdury, St. Ste. Marie). It's definitely a beautiful part of the country, despite being so close to the center of the universe. :P
    I'm now in the real centre of the universe. I live in London UK. :P

    I grew up in Toronto, lived in Brampton Ontario, moved to Brisbane Australia, tried a year in Finland then moved to London, UK. Been here for two years. :)

    Yes Ontario is a beautiful part of the country. Lots of Canadians put it down because of Toronto, the cleanest, friendliest, large city in North America. ;)

    I still have to investigate some more. I don't buy things on the spur of the moment. From the look of things, the Surface 2 looks the business.

    I don't think he's interested in a tablet. I could be wrong though.

    Cannot blame you either. The only appeal the 2520 had is the sim card slot, where i'd use it for data. Even that isn't a full need. To me, there still is no benefit to using RT.

    Morning folks...today is a new day but i am still in recovery from the zoo that was yesterday at work. Getting used to my T100...honestly, MSFT should have merged WP8 and RT a long time ago, as quite frankly, there are some things it is still easier for me to do on my 8X than it is on the Metro UI of the T100. All in all, very happy i own one. Now i need to upgrade my desktop...

    Commuting has been a bit more brutal here than usual. There are a lot more people I'm encountering during rush hour and it seems like the increased ridership is making things run a lot slower...

    interesting. Does that mean the economy is picking up or is this a peek season for tourists that I don't know about?

    When I lived up your way I had nothing but issues with WiFi at home. So not surprised. We had issues at work with mobile services yesterday. Not sure if that was storm related or not.

    Today I have quite a lot to do. But it's okay, as I won't be here Friday and having an external course Monday and Tuesday.

    Also, it's still very sunny here.
