Someone claims to make a tool to uninstall/delete/prevent Windows 10 from getting onto Win 7/8 machines.

Re: Smartphones : who has one ? Favorite OS ? Brand ?

Most iPhone users I know do not have a Mac Macs are quite a bit more popular in the States than the rest of the world. Around here, most iPhone users seem to also own Macs.

I suspect that's because most (though obviously not all) iPhone users also use Macs, and vice versa. There aren't many Mac users on this forum.

Re: ThinkPad Helix 2

At 3.7lbs it's closer to the X61T than the X61. Considering it comes with a digitizer/stylus, could that make it more "acceptable" somehow? OTOH, how much throttling will users experience with fanless Core M? The original Helix has a complicated cooling solution, but it uses the "U"-series. Core M s...

Interesting. Could be a good fit for ThinkPad users. OTOH, with USB 3.1 coming and the availability of higher power supply, it may not see much life. Besides, when you use this, you cannot charge your laptop, or you have to bring 2 laptop adapters. Of course you can always switch between the two. Ch...

Re: Surface Pro 3

AFAIK, all N-Trig pens will work.

However, there seems to be only one type of nibs available, unlike Wacom which you have a number of options.

Have been awaiting the successor of Helix, but now that Broadwell is further delayed. Maybe it won't arrive until 2015?

The SP2 got a CPU refresh midway. Perhaps the SP3 will also...? Although it could be even nicer if MS found a way to go fanless with Broadwell.
