I'm very pleased with it. Doing 90%+ of my work (mostly in Docs) on my HP 11, with the rest done on my Mac Mini, sometimes remotely.
great piece on Surface & Windows 8! As someone who owns both an iPad and a Windows 8.1 hybrid, I can agree with most of your points.
Also, a bit more technical, but much faster after the first run, and can be made unattended:
CCC and SD are nice, but why not simply Disk Utility? Boot into Recovery (maybe), fire up DU, and “restore” to external disk.
Enjoyed your article on Surface and Windows. I almost went with the Surface 2, as I like Metro. Instead, I went form iPad to Chromebook
P.P.S. Great write up. I think you and I are on the exact same page with a few changes in significance. SP2 is my only machine now.
Also, dragging a window to the top of the desktop maximizes it. Shaking a window minimizes everything but that window.
Regarding the Surface article, just wanted to give you a couple tips on Windows since you're less familiar with it. (It's ok!)
p.s. it's part of the default install and in the desktop. Sadly, they haven't integrated that functionality into OneNote :/
re: hw recog on surface with text search... try windows journal, it's been around since Tablet PC and has exactly what you want.
Windows RT solves many of the criticisms, but it has its own set of problems relating to performance and compatibility.
Interesting piece by about Windows 8 and Surface. Oddly, many criticisms are exactly what Windows RT was meant to solve.
Turtles all the way down: Windows’ UI is a mess built on 3 decades of other messes built on even earlier messes —
very interesting review. you may be interested in this post on "who will Surface customers become?"
Of course it can be used as content creation tool though, but nothing wrong with finding another tool suits you better
An aside to latest post: get Google Translate for iPad and check the handwriting recognition - it's phenomenally good in all languages.
So great to see you updated your blog. I was getting worried. I guess you’ve been very busy these past months :-)
Windows 8 and the Microsoft Surface by is a raw, honest and thoughtful take on both products -
@fluidlabpro True. The Surface stylus comes in handy! Also a bit less of a problem if you know enough keyboard shortcuts....
DESIGN / “Metro is a UI that actually works well for productivity.” —
If you lower the default DPI It may work. The surface has a 1080p screen.
I just read your article about Win8 and Surface, just a little note in Win 8.1 you can snap (split) more than 2 apps in a monitor.
Some of the problems with the Surface stem from the fact that desktop apps are not ready for the tablet (tiny icons.)
Windows 8 and the Microsoft Surface, by Lukas Mathis ~ ~
hey Lukas. That article was simply fantastic!! No. 1 on Hacker News too (Y)
Was wondering whether I am a pervert having switched from iOS to Windows 8 & liking it mostly. Not the only one( )
.'s article on Windows and Metro is a must-read.
"Windows 8 and the Microsoft Surface" by mirrors a lot of my thoughts on my Venue and why I enjoy using it
I think there is a lack of good open source mock up tools and I really like your Approach.
Alrighty. The Thing About Jetpacks, by and . Loads of essays. There is one which stands out in particular...
Looking forward to my copy of "The Thing about Jetpacks." by :
Reading 's "Designed for use". All those examples involving WebOS reminds me how badly I wanted a Pre. So sad it died.
Here’s that Nintendo piece I mentioned on my blog. You might like it.
I haven't delved into most recent statements, but had a great write-up of the abandon-the-consolers:

. to find myself on a list in company of many of my favourite writers + to be compared to even! Wow.
Am I missing a feature in the CFF app or were you being prospective?
that's the problem with perception when you do annual releases. Expectations are unreasonable.
Lukas () wrote a great essay about this in our book. 10.0->10.9 is a massive change. But no single upgrade was shocking. By design.
Adds character! You now have the most notable copy in existence.
Just spilled some Scotch ale my brand new copy of The Thing About Jetpacks. Sorry, and .
The book is beautiful. Thank you.
Glad you like it! Thanks! :)
'The Thing About Jetpacks' looks and feels great, thanks for publishing!

Apple pundits: “It’s unfair to expect Apple to redefine a market every year! [beat] Nintendo hasn’t redefined gaming this year & is doomed.”
Market has changed but that doesn’t mean Nintendo is doomed or should commit slow suicide by making iOS titles.
Thank you for writing the blog post on Nintendo I wanted to write, & doing a better job than I'd have anyway! You hit on all the points
As for novelty, disagree completely. I find 3DS games to be more immersive than all other games I play.
(July: 225,000 HW at $170, 500,000 Animal Crossing at $35. Unsure about iOS. Would it be $1.99 or $2.99?)
"What I love" simultaneously died a decade ago and lives on in the works from before that decade. This isn't nostalgia.
Very nicely written article by on why there is likely no need for Nintendo to abandon Hardware

Comments on blogs? I think I’d keep mine just for the occasional insight from :
Can I buy v2 from you, please? My AFK/offline collection will then be complete :)
Excellent read. Looking forward to v3. Thanks and !
I’ve received “For 100 of our closest friends: Volume 2”. ’s essay about wearable computing is just brilliant. Lets keep reading! 😀📖
wicked! Thanks for the tip off.
I’m a terrible reader so I prefer lighter stuff. I love ’s blog, so I think this would be a great read
Review feedback from and is soo gooood that I want to just paste it into the chapter as-is and claim it as my own.
Scored a copy of essays on design volume 3 by and . Woohoo.
An old but great piece by : my short and sweet takeaway:
Oh interesting. Looking at some apps that are specifically for women. All of the reviews are civilized and helpful. Coincidence?
Bathtime idea: Kickstart a project to disrupt the Japanese bath interface industry, then bring Japanese bath culture to the west.

Read this book () by and last night. What an awesome read on design. If you can get a copy, do.
About to dive into "Designed for Use" by .
Really enjoyed 's recent articles on the iTunes 11 user interface. &
I wonder if Obama will stop killing people with drones now? Murdering innocent adults and children in cold blood is wrong, period. Right?
Another “great” UI design in iTunes 11: <-- four(!) play buttons, which do four different things.
Took a deep breath and read through a bunch of tech review feedback. I love my reviewers so much.
Backed the new book from () & () aka
It’s nice that you’ll allow to access the digital content for past and future pubs. Specially since I missed the 1st one. Purchased! :)
I would buy anything those guys put out. Even like a piece of paper with a doodle on it. Really smart stuff.
Thanks for the interesting thoughts on scrolling/pagination. I prefer pagination if the content is optimized for the screen size.
I agree with you 100% about pagination vs scrolling. I can say I'm a proficient tech user, yet I hate scrolling when a txt is too long.
Scrolling aggravates my obsessive side. I finding myself scrolling precise distances, and thinking about it. Pagination lets me relax.
und ich behaupte mal, ohne selbst zu twittern, ist es sauschwer davon eine ahnung zu haben.

Interesting take on a video editor here: (by ) VIDEO
Even with 256 characters on app•net, I can’t quite articulate my response to from ;
nope unless they give the paid update a different name (register it as different app in twitter dev center)
I don’t think so. said that a user account only counts once for iPhone, iPad, and Mac. I think it’s by developer account.
I’ve never used the Twitter API, so I’m the wrong guy here. But it might be possible for them to share both API keys and user tokens.
It depends: I suspect they are basing that on the applications as registered with Twitter, not as distributed to users.
think it’s based on the oauth keys so if they made a new one then yes.
One app = one app on theoretically you could use multiple consumer keys/secrets for one app.
No faster here either but more reliable loading data.
The old one really suffered on older devices (1G iPad, for example), and with limited connectivity, as it relied on WebKit for caching.
On my iPad3 it's really snappy, e.g. when scrolling the timeline fast.
Not at all. It's still not very fast.
still slow as a pig for me. Smoother scrolling, but content is slow to load
precisely. can i just take this opp to say i'm a longtime follower of your blog and learned loads from it
it's a little faster in some places eg photos, message comment replies etc. newsfeed loading is abt the same ;-)
I second that. For what it’s worth, Path is even slower these days and you kind of just learn to accept that from this category apps.
I could definitely tell the speed difference, but the real improvement in my view is how much smoother it got. It's buttery.

I like Lukas Mathis' writing: , at
"Ha ha, we scoff. Who wants to do Microsoft Office on a tablet? Answer: Lots of people. People w/different priorities."
The math works out, but that doesn’t mean a ~7-inch iPad will provide a *great* experience with existing iPad apps. I’m reserving judgement.
My therapist probably never expected to know much about the agony and ecstasy of software development. We should start a podcast together...
'Gay marriage' should be called 'marriage' you know because I had lunch this afternoon not 'gay lunch' & I parked my car not gay parked it.

BBC News - Microsoft unveils Surface Windows 8 tablets Microsoft get the importance of colour, when will Apple?
I'm rooting for MSFT's Surface. BC I'm tired of antiseptic one winner Apple driven iPad BS.
Surface is already a more interesting iPad competitor than any Android-based tablet. Google really blew an opportunity to stake out ground.
Ok, honestly, the Microsoft Surface looks COOL. Damn cool. This is exactly the competition iOS needs.
Microsoft Surface has USB 3.0, but the Mac Pro still doesnt.
I’m going to start asking the dudes I meet at conferences if they are a developer’s boyfriend.
That's just sick. Backed.
1440 by 900 is still better than what I have now :)
Video showing pull-to-refresh in iOS 6 via . Holy shit that's cool.
I just don't feel like Passbook is whimsical enough. Its dark and depressing. ;)
Alcohol glorification jokes in the Siri intro. Ready for this to stop being an official part of the developer culture. >:\

Finished "Designed for use" by last night: Great pragmatic book about usability testing, full with little tips! A must read.
A neat little iPhone mockup tool: via
EdgeCase was recommended on Ignore the Code: Thanks . Great Wacom Cintiq use case as well.
Am I wrong in assuming is Lil Kim?
Soon hopefully, it really is the elephant in the room :)
When is apple going to do that with iTunes?
Loving "Designed for Use" by . Great introductory overview of usability/interface design for software/web/devices.
in contrast, Chabudai Gaeshi was taken to far by 3D Realms developing Duke Nukem Forever
Comment by on my iPad windowing moan: <- I think I agree, in that open windowing model is the issue, not multi-win

Finally finished reading 's "Designed for Use"—a good overview of and introduction to the field of UX with LOADS of references!
"if you give people just a little bit of rope, they'll have a harder time using it to hang themselves" haha, favorite part!

Reading 's Designed for Use. Really interesting. Recommended for designers!
Lukas Mathis takes a closer look at the new iPad's screen under the microscope // cc
Best kiosk BSOD of all time at Victoria's Miniature World.
I am sure your extorting of small merchants, denying charities money and being impossible to contact will instill trust in your new product.

At long last, I purchased "Designed for Use" by . I know I'll enjoy it.
oh yes! an iOS keyboard with a number row. That would be nice, indeed
It is soooooooooooo not our responsibility to make sure Twitter gets paid.

at least Apple won't sue them with a patent on stylus.
Friend of mine bought the Note. It's a big ass phone, but does have a lovely screen.

I got the simpler Harmony 300 and it's just as crap. I can't believe logitech requires all that shitty web-silverlight setup.
After a little bit of Product Design, my Kindle is now suitable for bath-time reading. Glad my degree has a use :)
Please. Have you never seen someone confused by having to mail a picture rather than add a picture to a mail?
I feel the need to thank you both for your great conversation. Kudos.
Sorry, talking at cross purposes, I assumed you meant organising within a project. Grouping by doctype outside of project mad!
Many thanks for the suggestion!
