Ok. After much complaining and whining, I finally got my Surface Pro. My purchase plan had to update a little, but everything seemed to work out nicely. I had planned to get the whole package from Best Buy but, if you read my previous crazy rant. You know that didn't work out. I ended up watching the Microsoft Store website like a hawk and on Feb 16th, they showed up as available for order again with a projected delivery of March 1. Click! Went my order. But, just for the tablet. I … [Read more...]
No Surface Pro for me :-(
I've been looking at getting a Microsoft Surface and was on the fence until they announced that there was a 128GB Pro version that was capable of running full desktop applications.

This device in all it's glory would only be available from 3 locations; The Microsoft store, Staples and, Best Buy.

Cool Video: Bird Attacks RC Plane
I'm a big fan of RC (Remote Controlled) Airplanes, Helicopters, and cars. I don't have any right now but, I've been looking at Helicopters and think I may want to give that a whirl. ;-) - sorry about the pun.

Well, we were looking at adding a camera to the cars so you could see their speed from the car's … [Read more...]
