    Yes, primarily because MS also told me it also stresses the hinge a bit more in that scenario. Normal use isn't the issue. just the inadvertent pressures that might go with being in a pocket, such as when sitting down.

    Good to know... I primarily use my front pockets, so I'm never sitting on it. But still maybe a good idea to close it "shell out" when necessary. Who at MS told you that?

    One of their system engineers. It's not extreme, but basically with the two sides facing outward the hinge is at maximum tension versus when closed it's at minimum

    I'm wondering if @JoeS had his cup when he wrote his ironic post about your missing a word:
    "I think you a word." Did you too ___ a word Joe, or had you had 2 cups and your phrasing had it's irony intentionally built-in? o_O:D

    EDIT: My irony: took me 3 tries to get the typos out of my two line post :oops:

    Welcome to the internet! :) Yes, that's an internet-standard 'jokey' way to point out that a word is missing. :thumbsup:
