Let’s Talk About Surface (Premium)


I had to dash out at the conclusion of today's Surface event in order to make my way home. But I have thoughts about the announcements. Some of which may surprise you.

First up, I should quickly acknowledge that today wasn't just about Surface, though we all tend to get a bit wrapped up in the hardware. And on that note, some of the Windows, Office, and phone integration pieces were quite interesting. Windows 10 version 1809 is now available to "seekers," as I figured would be the case. Microsoft is integrating To-Do, finally, into Timeline is finally available in (the beta version of) Microsoft Launcher on Android. And the Your Phone app in Windows 10 will be updated with notification support as expected, and with a new screen/app mirroring capability that demands further exploration.
