On Connect post Microsoft unveils Surface Pro 3 tablet to replace laptops (270 comments in total)
In reply to:

ThePhilips: For a laptop I still prefer the Macs.

But then, even Apple stopped producing laptops with the matte screen.

I'm not sure whose bright idea it was to make all screens glossy. The glossy screens suck for literally any kind of work. And even for movie watching, seeing half the time your own reflection in the screen doesn't really increase the entertainment value.

When my old laptop stops working, I'm not even sure what to buy next. Pro gear as if disappeared in the last few years.

Same goes for external monitors. Sad times.

Jogger: Ive had a Surface Pro since day 1 and its the best laptop/tablet out there. Those with iPads.. have fun letting Apple/NSA spy on your every move and the walled-off ecosystem... hint, its a millstone, not a feature.

"Most people don't have anything to hide!"

Do you have a webcam inside your bedroom? If so, what's the IP address, please – you have nothing to hide, after all!

Perfect :)

shigzeo: Ridiculous product. For the same price I could purchase 1500 bags of Jelly Bellies.

Even a US dentist?

On article New Wacom tablets offer features for photographers (12 comments in total)
In reply to:

Tan68: I bought a Watcom tablet. It came in a blue box.

I asked the boy in the store to show me to the tablets but not this kind (and gestured to Nexus-whatever). He had the grace to correct a customer and tell me what I meant was 'pad'.

The back of my blue box calls the device a 'tablet' so I don't know what he meant by 'pad'.

Maybe the older Wacoms are 'pen pads' and we just don't know it... Personally, I agree with the author's use of tablet here. However, the new tablet tablets are a little confusing. 'Companion tablet' helps. Maybe TABLET v. tablet...

The smug shop assistant is wrong.

I'm looking forward to using this software, when I finally receive GDR2 on my 920 :)

Android also has it built into the native jellybean (4.1) camera app.

This needed to be on the shelves a year ago... though it could still do well.

pdqgp: do you really need that resolution on a 20" tablet?

No-one needs it, but many *want* it ;)
