    Splurged yesterday and picked up a Sony Dual Shock 4 game pad for the Vivotab. I installed a third party Xinput driver to make it compatible with Xbox button mapping; other than that it was out of box and painless to sync over Bluetooth. Tonight I sat on the couch and played South Park: Stick of Truth and it was a blast. The vivotab also makes for a great portable SNES emulator. ;)

    I think this is more of a Microsoft question, but anyone notice after the 8.1 update, the touch keyboard can't enter numbers correctly, i.e. in the touch keyboard, tap and hold to enter a number doesn't work if you have consecutive numbers to enter?

    Was the GPS accurate when you used it? It places my location nearly 2 miles away from where I was ATM. I'll have to try other locations. I do like the Here maps.

    Yea, I think I might have had to tweak things, but it was much more accurate than 2 miles. Typical GPS errors though of probably 10's of meters and worse in the vicinity of tall buildings.

    I think one issue I faced was only one app is allowed to use the GPS at a time.

    Here Maps is good... only thing missing is the turn-by-turn navigation that's available on the phones.

    That's a separate app (Here Drive) on phones.
