Surface updates

by Volker Weber

I am getting quite fond of Microsoft Surface. I have been using it more than the iPad lately. One odd thing: I just ran the big update which contained a firmware update on both Surface and Yoga. On Surface you have to run firmware updates multiple times, since it also updates the keyboard firmware. And you can only have one keyboard attached at the same time. I ran it three times: Surface, Touch Cover and Type Cover.

The Type Cover is still my favorite but I am getting better on the Touch Cover. It's the one that I ultimately want. However, I am using Surface most of the time without a cover, much like an iPad.

I like to use NextGen Reader to keep up with news. And I enjoy the way you can transfer files in and out of Surface via USB. I put a few TV shows on a stick and then watch them.

and they unlocked Flash as of today's update, which is a Very Good Thing.

Is Flash still that important these days? Besides some weird games I cannot remember that I missed Flash, be it on Android, ipad mini, Mac or PC.

I can't stand Flash. I disable it in every browser on every computer I have. Of course, when I use my work computer with IE, where I can't install add-ons and have to rely on the crippled Flash-blocking support Microsoft built into IE, I have to answer a prompt (No, I don't want to enable Flash) on every web page that wants to load it. Talk about annoying. One more reason to hate IE.
