An update was then released after several weeks to take care of the issue, however, a second issue soon cropped up. Microsoft has now […]
When new products are launched, sometimes there are issues that weren’t discovered during the testing phase and this is normal. However for devices to exhibit problems long after they have been on the market can’t be a good sign, but unfortunately that seems to be the problem that Surface Pro 3 owners are facing.
Over the past few months, we have been hearing reports that many Surface Pro 3 users are experiencing rapid battery drain which essentially makes the device useless if they don’t have it plugged in all the time. Microsoft has been working on the fix for quite some time now and it has finally been released today. Those who own an affected Surface Pro 3 will certainly be hoping that this […]
For the past few weeks, Microsoft has been looking into complaints from many Surface Pro 3 owners regarding significant battery drain. A couple of weeks ago, Microsoft confirmed that the issue has nothing to do with the hardware itself and that it appears to be fixable via software. Microsoft has now said that it’s going to do just that. It’s going to fix the Surface Pro 3 battery issues by […]
We reported yesterday that Microsoft was investigating reports of significant battery issues with the Surface Pro 3. Reports of the Surface Pro 3 facing these issues started coming in back in May this year and Microsoft finally said that it’s going to look into the matter. Well it has, and has blamed it on software, which is good news because apparently there’s nothing wrong with the hardware.

There are so many accessories that we bring with us for our laptops and tablets. For example we might have flash drives, external hard drives, maybe a battery pack, a mouse, charging cables, and etc. Sometimes it can get pretty messy, but one Redditor by the name of Splice1138 has come up with a pretty clever way of handling that.
Billions of dollars will be spent over the next few days as people purchase the things that they need and even the things that they don’t, the discounts tend to be so enticing during this time of the year that we often find ourselves buying things that we don’t need but want.

It’s not uncommon for Microsoft to cut prices of its Surface tablets to get the sales momentum going again and the company is doing something along the same lines today.

With the Surface Pro 4 launch tipped to happen later this October, it is not surprising that some of us might think that there might not be too much time left for its predecessors in terms of hardware, and the next question would be, how far more would Microsoft go in order to support the older models? Fret not, as the updates for the Microsoft Surface 3 as well as […]
Microsoft has quietly added another variant to its Surface Pro 3 lineup, the new model features the same Core i7 processor from Intel that’s present on the existing Surface Pro 3 models. It features less onboard storage which is the main reason why the new model is cheaper than the existing ones. Nothing else is different about this tablet.
The time has come that people start wondering about a successor to the Surface Pro 3 tablet. Microsoft recently revived its Surface tablet line with the Surface 3 and naturally many started asking when the company plans on launching the Surface Pro 4. If word on the street is to be believed, then Redmond might actually be planning to do that as soon as this month.

A new report today claims Microsoft is working on the Surface 3 tablet […]

It goes without saying that any operating system, no matter how well thought out it is, will still come with some issues to fix, minor or otherwise. After all, there is no such thing as an unbreakable code, and hence, it is not surprising to hear that preview versions of Windows 10 do arrive with their very own set of bugs, issues and problems. Having said that, the Microsoft Surface […]
