Microsoft Is Sitting On Six Million Unsold Surface Tablets

cerebralpayne Surface RT is working for me at work (550 comments)

I take it to meetings and take notes with OneNote and switch to my calendar or e-mail or Office when needed. Also if I am troubleshooting something away from my office, I take it with me and connect to the Internet with a screen size that is preferable to a phone. If I need to do something not supported in the RT system, I can use Remote Desktop to a full-fledged Windows machine. Now, I could do some of this with an Android or iPad, but it's nice having the Windows interface. Also I prefer carrying the tablet around to lugging around a laptop. Having said all that, I still do 95% of my work at a desktop, and I'm not sure the value from the tablet is really worth the high price.

At home, I don't have any need for a tablet. I'm either doing involved stuff on a laptop or quickly looking things up on a phone.

Google To Host International SVG Conference

cerebralpayne Re:Really, about time. (38 comments)

It bugs me that when printing or taking a screenshot of a web page with graphics that were originally vector-based but had to be converted to PNG, the coarseness of the graphics look awful next to the crispness of the text.

Best 2+ Player Video Games?

cerebralpayne cooperative (279 comments)

My wife and I like to play console games together when we can, but prefer cooperative games, and she doesn't like FPSs. We have found 3 really good, fairly recent games that we played through and beat:

They aren't too hard, but are still challenging, and they stay interesting throughout. I wish we could find more like these, especially ToeJam & Earl.
