I love the coverage, but the articles seem to have less and less proof reading lately.
The problem is no one knows how to setup the netowrk join LOL
Not a bad deal and better than having nothing but us Canadian users keep getting shafted by Microsoft because of this. People down south get free charging plates and can usually pick one up for $20-$30 while we have to shell out $50 for the same thing (and there is no discount on that). Not only that, companies like Apple offer a flat 10% discount on anything you buy here - why can't Microsoft do the same?
Honestly, this regional crap is really frustrating. Surely, agreements and licensing can't be the only reason behind it because other companies have no problem getting their products and services here...it's just with Microsoft that I see us being treated as a market that has no real priority which is incredibly surprising since we share so much of our structural DNA with the States that it shouldn't be a problem for Microsoft to get their products/services here. Certainly not what I expect from a multi-billion dollar technology giant.
I love my WP8 and was looking forward to getting a surface for christmas but idk if I wanna throw my money at a lying aweful company like this!
