Surface Pro 4 review: Microsoft’s safer choice is a (deceptively) big upgrade

Will Shanklin:


If you’ve used a Surface Pro 3, then the Pro 4 is going to look very familiar. There aren’t any major size or form factor changes, and its big upgrades come in subtle – deceptively so – places. Things like a slightly bigger and sharper screen, an improved cooling system (so the fan runs less frequently) and longer battery life.

In a nice change of pace from what we see from many companies, Microsoft is sharing one of the Surface Pro 4’s biggest upgrades with owners of the Surface Pro 3. The new models’ Type Cover, which is backwards compatible with the SP3, has snappier-feeling keys and a larger glass trackpad. The Pro 3 was already doing pretty well in this respect, but the new keyboard cover makes laptop mode a practically uncompromised experience.

There’s also a (US$30 more expensive) Type Cover with an embedded fingerprint sensor on it, but that’s a better fit for Pro 3 owners than buyers of the new model. That’s because the new Surfaces have a front-facing camera with facial recognition capabilities, basically voiding out any need for a fingerprint sensor.

Review: Apple TV (2015 edition) – iPhone J.D.

Jeff Richardson:

The fourth generation of the Apple TV went on sale this past Friday.  I bought one and have had a chance to use it over the weekend.  If you have used either of the two prior models of the Apple TV (the second generation came out in 2010; the third generation in 2012), there is much that is similar.  You still have a home screen with icons, and you scroll down to see more icons.  Some features have barely changed at all from the prior model except for an updated interface, such as the ability to use Home Sharing to stream your music, photos and videos (purchased or home videos) from a Mac on your home network that is running iTunes.  But one thing is very different, and it has the potential to make the Apple TV infinitely better than prior models:  the ability to download apps.

MAC USER: The Apple Watch | Solo, Small Firm and General Practice Divisio


Victoria L. Herring ( practices in Des Moines, Iowa, in an office that has used only Apple/Macs since the early 1980s.

I’m just old enough to remember the comic strip Dick Tracy and its image of the detective talking into his wristwatch, a two-way radio. The Apple Watch can be seen as something similar, but it’s more than that. Plus, it’s a bit weird to be talking into your wrist, even if there’s an Apple Watch on it, so that is not something you’ll do all that often.

I did not buy my Apple Watch immediately. I decided to wait and see the early reviews. Besides, I am not in the habit of wearing a watch and normally just look around for a clock or pull out my iPhone to check the time. However, after a few weeks I decided to go ahead and buy an Apple Watch, hoping it would be a good investment. Of course, I didn’t buy the top-of-the-line model, not having an extra $17,000 for the gold Apple Watch Edition. Instead, I opted for the $349 Apple Watch Sport with a black sport band and a 38 mm space gray aluminum case. I now have some views on how the Apple Watch has already or will in the future impact my life.

New York launches probe into speeds at big Internet broadband providers | Reuters


New York state’s attorney general is probing whether three major Internet providers could be shortchanging consumers by charging them for faster broadband speeds and failing to deliver the speeds being advertised, according to documents seen by Reuters.

The letters, sent on Friday to executives at Verizon Communications Inc (VZ.N), Cablevision Systems Corp (CVC.N) and Time Warner Cable Inc (TWC.N), ask each company to provide copies of all disclosures they have made to customers, as well as copies of any testing they may have done of their Internet speeds. 

“New Yorkers deserve the Internet speeds they pay for. But, it turns out, many of us may be paying for one thing, and getting another,” Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said in a statement.

If Your Wi-Fi Is Terrible, Check Your Router – The New York Times


The Wirecutter performed a battery of tests on two top-performing

routers with six devices, and the results were unmistakable: If your

current router is at least three years old, there is no reason not to

upgrade to a new router.

Not only can a newer router improve the speed and range for users, the

routers typically have upgraded internal components and strong external

antennas. Many also support the latest Wi-Fi standard — 802.11ac

which has top speeds that are nearly three times faster than the

previous standard, 802.11n, for the fastest wireless devices you can buy
