Surface Windows 8 Pro 128 GB Review Part 4 – Wrap Up

2 out of 3 ain’t bad. I said this in my initial post about the Surface, ” It has the power of a desktop machine, the portability of a laptop, and the convenience of a tablet.” Well Surface does not have the convenience of a tablet. It falls short in this...

Surface Windows 8 Pro 128 GB Review Part 3 – Hardware

I had so many gripes about Windows 8 that I thought it would be prudent to keep my hardware and software thoughts separate. Here are my impressions on the hardware for Surface Pro. I can boil this down to two words. It’s nice. Every blog imaginable has written about...

Surface Windows 8 Pro 128 GB Review Part 2 – Software

Overall impressions: This is a device that should have come out 2 years ago. It feels like it’s behind because the tablet aspect of Windows 8 isn’t complete and it tries to trap me in the Microsoft/Windows universe. I mostly live in Google’s world now and there aren’t the...

Update to My Samsung Galaxy S III Review

I posted a review of the Samsung Galaxy S III a little over a month ago. My initial reaction was that I was fairly impressed but not overwhelmed by anything. Overall I felt it was a good upgrade of hardware and software but not anything spectacular. What’s changed in...

Nexus 7 Review

Here’s another review courtesy of your average tech enthusiast. I’ve never liked the iPad. My main reasons are the locked down ecosystem, the size, the weight, and the cost. I don’t understand spending that kind of money for something that isn’t a real computer. Instead I’ve taken to first using...

My Samsung Galaxy S III Review

From Tech Stuff I’m a technology enthusiast yes, but, not always an early adopter. I just received my Samsung Galaxy S III phone from Verizon after two plus years of using an HTC Incredible. I loved the Incredible. The size of the phone was perfect for my pocket and...
