    Hey as @dstrauss would say (or at least what I'd think he'd say), "the key to satisfaction, is to never be satisfied."

    That way you can always be trying the latest and greatest (and the stores will be absorbing all the costs of the returns). :D

    True, but I don't think I have the time or energy to do that, and I'm under 40. I may try the Go in store just for the hell of it, but I think I will grow to like or love the size of the SP. Already loving the fact it's not and EMMC drive and the faster Core M(though 8th gen would have been nice bonus at this price, I really can't complain).

    I just had the funniest vision of @dstrauss at age 103, still spritely and still at the MS Store counter, giving the staff a hard time. :D

    dstraussing, the key eternal youth.

    At 103 it would be an e-counter, as we all would wear our VR headsets to go shopping and support staff is all AI robots, and a guy name Steve.

    PS - "dstraussing" is already taken - it's the fine art of "recycling no longer needed tech..."

    Pretty sure by that time, he will have honed his art of the Rant to such a degree he could fry the circuits of even the most advanced AI. :D

    "Sir, we're getting strange readings from virtual Store #743."

    "What's the process code?"

    "Seems to be a regular return, sir."

    <gasp> "Oh no...I've seen this before—Quick! Activate DSTRAUSS protocols alpha-omega-zero!"

    "Cut off all access to nearby terminals and alert all AI in the vicinity:"

    "Do not engage! I repeat: DO NOT engage!"

    <<...Who amongst Surface 3 users going for it?..>>

    ...As (I think) you observe, this is being discussed elsewhere; let's not repeat that discussion here...

    Anybody else have their touchbar go dead to touch after yesterday's update? Both the tabbar and the URL bar are dead to touch. They work fine with the pen. Has to be a software or firmware screw up. Thank you Microsoft! Can't use the x to close with touch and can't use the home button. Both now pen only. Any suggestions? Touch works fine everywhere else.

    Can you revert back to a previous firmware version?
