    So if MS always uses telemetry to gather info from users than are primarily users of Apple and Google products and services, are they ever going to innovate? Why can they build in the unique features of Edge on top of the engine and general UI that many are familar with. People (who I have talked with or ready about) were not using Edge because of UI weirdness. They were using Chrome because "everyone" said Chrome was better and based their personal experience (less compatibilty issues, faster, more apps/extensions). There are so many nice features in MS products that people simply don't know about. So MS sees they don't use them (via telemetry) so obviously those features are failures and should be scrapped. Can't MS just stick to their guns and keep improving what is good design/functionality and not just be a copycat?

    Hey, Brad, check out the SpaceFlight Now web site's Launch Schedule page to see if anything is launching at Cape Canaveral or the Kennedy Space Center while you're in the neighborhood. The page lists all (known) launches globally, so check the "Launch site" tag for specifically CC and KSC launches.

    OMG printing is amazing on the new Edge much, much faster on network printers.

    John Lewis are probably the best retailer to go to in the UK apart from the Microsoft store for Surface. They do events through the year with Microsoft and have a large area in the computer department dedicated to Surface.
