    Now that Intel has abandoned their low-powered Atom chips, they're going to have a lot of trouble competing with this. The performance of the 835 should be pretty comparable to the formerly-known-as Core-M models, which currently cost hundreds of dollars. The whole Snapdragon SoC (including CPU, memory, radio, etc.) will actually cost less than a similar-performing Intel CPU alone. Intel is going to have to cut Core-M down to Atom prices if they want to compete with Qualcomm. This is assuming Windows-on-ARM actually works well, as I expect it will. After all, the only problem with the now ancient Surface 2 (non-Pro) wasn't performance, it was simply that you couldn't install actual Windows software.

    Ditch the 'T' shadow though.It doesn't look good and makes everything a bit amateurish...

      And there needs to be a short version for short videos. Running 6 seconds intro and 6 outro on a video with only 25 seconds of content (not this one but some of the headset ones) makes it seem that the video is about the site branding more than the content.
