    in best buy right this minute playing with the surface book. Can't get the pen to work. Frustrating. Is there a setting wrong?

    Does it work with other Surface pens? If not it's the clipboard (or drivers) itself that's the problem.

    two surface pro 4 pens near by don't work. Surface pro pen 3 won't reach without me setting off security. Click of pen cap does launch one note.

    Sorry..... I've been less active because I've been working 65-70 hours a week since the announcement. I will be getting a SP4 256/8 or 256/16 with a new Type Cover. I will also be getting a 950XL as the TH2 Cortana Integrations are great, getting notifications of missed calls on my S3/SP3 and being able to text back has been great this past week.

    Also, the first week if November I will be meeting with the Surface Team and Windows Team....

    i just realized: kind of a missed opportunity that MS didn't put one USB-C port on their new Surface Pro/Book dock line. If people could hook up their Lumia 950/950XL to the same dock and use continuum, that might have sold a couple of extra Lumias.
