Give your Surface Pro additional USB ports and an Ethernet port with DualRole

29

What happens when a tablet and an ultrabook have a one night stand? You get the Surface Pro 2. Thank you, I’m here all night. Both the Surface Pro and Surface Pro 2 are killer machines, but like all machines they have a few faults. With both you only get one USB port and neither machine has an Ethernet port. Here’s one little doohickey that could become an essential travel companion to your Surface Pro 2. The DualRole from Kanex.

What’s on your Windows Phone Start screen, Daniel Rubino?

153

With news winding down this week, I figured I would kick off a new segment on our site. The idea was brought up in our forums and it’s a simple idea that I like: What apps are on the WPCentral’s staff Start screen?

It’s an interesting question, as it gives you a peek into what apps we use the most, what apps we consider essential and overall layout/design choices. Granted, many of you have probably taken notice when I do videos of what’s on my screen, but today I figured I’d actually list out what’s there and why.

Later on, we’ll have our other site writers chime in and share their screens too, in the hopes to facilitate discussion and maybe you’ll learn about a new app! How often we do this will depend on how often we change things on our displays, so that’s up in the air. Let’s dive in!

Top Windows Phone weather apps for severe weather season

Windows Phone Central App Roundup: Weather Apps

There is little debate on whether or not we have an ample selection of weather related apps in the Windows Phone Store. Some will argue we have too many Windows Phone weather apps, while others like the variety and options available. Regardless of your position, when the weather starts to turn south some of these apps can help you keep track of severe weather situations in your area.

As Spring quickly approaches so does the Spring severe weather season. Many parts of the U.S. will see weather events ranging from dangerous thunderstorms to deadly tornadoes. Some of us will also be facing Hurricane Season in a few months, which will present more severe weather potential. For this week’s Windows Phone Central roundup, we focus on Windows Phone weather apps that do more than just give you the current temperature and weekly forecast. We will highlight four of the top rated weather apps that have a little more meat on the bone when it comes to delivering weather information to your Windows Phone.

Samsung invents new Surface accessory in latest attack ad

282

Advertisements come in all shape and form. Ads that highlight the strengths of your products are generally the one most people like. Though companies like Microsoft, Samsung, Google and Apple are all guilty of taking the ‘attack ad’ approach. Most of the time those types of ads are a little hard to watch and come off as petty. Here’s a new one from Samsung that just induces all sorts of cringe.

Surface 2 LTE – Quick impression and answering some questions

68

Earlier this week, Microsoft finally released the Surface 2 with LTE on board here in the US. Available at Best Buy and Microsoft Stores (both online and in-stores), the $679 device brings 4G LTE connectivity to you wherever, whenever.

I managed to pick one up and have been playing around with it for the last 72 hours. Seeing as a lot of people are curious about this device, including features or limitations, I figured I’d do a quick-n-dirty breakdown of the major aspects. Hopefully it will quench your thirst in case you are considering this device.
