Do you wish Surface pro had Apple Pencil technology and ipadpro refresh rate?

    How did I not know of this absolute gem?!
    I love to raise the temperature of a Frenchman by going into detail how I butcher their cuisine in the kitchen.

    Well Microsoft has made it pretty clear that Pen tech is not important to them. Last year they were gloating about their achievement decreasing IAF from unacceptable 20 grams to still unacceptable 9 grams. If they had even made a slight improvement they would have made sure the world knows. NTrig technology has peaked. Also it's the same boring 60 hz refresh rate instead of game changing variable refresh rate of iPad pro. Surface Pro x even at the launch day looks like this iPadPro generation 1 from 5 years back. It's outdated to begin with. Those bezels are atrocious. LG's dual screen phone looks and feels much better than Surface duo phone.

    The Software improvements were very exciting, Microsoft is still best at what it knows, Software and hinges. For everything else there's Note10 and iPadPro. I hope vivo Nex 4 comes with a pen next year. It's the best a pocket device can be.

    In India we do not have a surfing culture, but a similar wax product might be available here. We are the land of Kamasutra if will be a shame if we could not find a substitute of SexWax. If only someone can share the exact composition of the above mentioned wax, so that thousands of Apple customers in India, can get their Pencils waxed with sex wax. I can picture teeming indian masses reeling under the heavy Apple tax, lining up to dip their pencils in the magical wax of freedom, this act will be symbolically as powerful as the sacred act of casting one's vote on the Altar of Democracy. It will be their silent revolt against the Tyrannical reign of Johny Ives, independence day all over again - A public referendum on Apple.

    Although my surfing days are long behind me, I am quite familiar with surfer's wax. It is primarily bees wax and coconut oil to make it spread smoothly. One recipe I found online calls for pine resin too, but I don't recall using that when I was a kid hanging out on New Jersey's beaches. https://www.surfertoday.com/surfing/how-to-make-your-own-surf-wax

    BTW, your choice of language is funny if you consider that "waxing your pencil" is slang here on the east coast (US) for a sexual act.

    I just jumped into this thread, and I'm already dazzled...

    "Surfers?", "Kama Sutra?", "SexWax?" How did we get here from N-Trig?

    I'm intrigued. :)

    I'm trying very hard to be family friendly. You guys have no idea of the sacrifices I'm willing to endure for the good of the community. Especially as we might be hanging on a thread.
