Surface Pro and Surface Pro 2 haven't seen new firmware updates since mid-2015. But this week, Microsoft unexpectedly shipped new firmware updates for each machine.
Recent Surface Pro 2 Stories
As you may have heard, Microsoft admitted earlier this week that it will be undergoing a voluntary recall for all Surface Pro power cords sold before July 15, 2015. If you own such a cord, you should have it replaced (for free). Here's how.
ZDNet's Mary Jo Foley has confirmed that Microsoft will soon issue a recall for Surface Pro, Pro 2 and Pro 3 power cords. Apparently, these cords can develop issues when they become too tightly wound. (This recall does not concern the entire power adapter.)
