Another Surface Video appears, but what is it all about?

30

Yesterday another Video appeared on the dedicated Surface YouTube Channel but it dispels with any meaningful message in favour of irritating music and mind bending spins and flips.

The Surface tablet is Microsoft’s first foray into selling its own computer and is designed to go head to head with an army of Android tablets and the seemingly unstoppable Apple iPad. Anticipation for this device amongst many, including staff here at Windows Phone Central has been high and we have written about how much we like it but we aren’t really what you’d call the average consumer. So what is going with the advertising for Surface?

Spider Jack cuts the web of its price down to 99 cents on Xbox Windows Phone

14

A couple of weeks ago, Windows Phone Central published a dual review of Cut the Rope and Spider Jack. Both games stem from Russian developers, star cute and hungry little critters, and feature gameplay that involves the cutting of ropes (or spider webs). Cut the Rope may be better known (all of my Windows Phone friends bought it), but I actually found Spider Jack a bit more enjoyable. Despite its quality however, Spider Jack suffered one major disadvantage compared to Cut the Rope: its $2.99 price.

Last week, Spider Jack developer MaxNick’s second Xbox Windows Phone title Turn N Run launched at the 99 cent price point (after briefly appearing at $2.99 due to a mistake). That prompted us to wonder whether Spider Jack might soon drop to the same price. Well, that’s exactly what happened today! You can now grab Spider Jack for just a buck.

Elems is a Tetris styled game for your Windows Phone where you try to form groups of fuzzy little creatures, Elems. Line up four Elems of the same color and they disappear from the game board. Elems has three game modes to keep things interesting.

Game controls will take a little time to get used to but overall, Elems is a decent little game for your Windows Phone.

T-Mobile SIM unlocking the Nokia Lumia 810 and does it have LTE?

10

There are some interesting discussions going in our forums on the T-Mobile Lumia 810 (see our unboxing), which shows the phone is gaining some ground with customers.

First up is getting the phone carrier-unlocked. Sure, you may have to renew that contract (if not buying full price) but for those of you who want that freedom to take your phone anywhere, T-Mobile is evidently playing fair...

Tip: Getting 'Search Server' to work with Gmail on Windows Phone 8

38

Google and Windows Phone haven’t always had the rosiest of relationships. Head to the Marketplace and you’ll find a whopping single app from the Mountain View tech giant. Whatever, we can do without them and their 1st party support when we have developers picking up the slack. However, a lot of you still rely on Gmail as your web email and have no plans to switch to Outlook anytime soon. So here is a super simple trick to make your experience a bit better on your new Lumia 920 or 8X.

Wi-Fi EAP-TLS support coming to Windows Phone “at some point”

40

We’re not one to delve too deep into the various Wi-Fi security profiles out there. For one, we’re speaking out of league and can’t offer pros/cons to each one and two, it’s just not something we hear a lot of from our readers. But there are a few of you out there and for them, certain protocols like EAP-TLS is important.

The good news is that Microsoft is conscious of the need for EAP-TLS for Wi-Fi security (especially important for enterprise) and it looks like it will come to Windows Phone at some point, but it’s not high on their priority list...
