"The Surface 3 fails on two vital aspects; it is too expensive (and priced too closely to the Surface Pro 3) and it is underpowered." I totally agree with TechRadar. I played with the Surface 3 at the Microsoft Store at Perimeter Mall, Atlanta and it was sluggish and underpowered like most Windows tablets save for the wonderful Surface 3 Pro I 5 and I 7 devices.

"A new executive order lets the US Attorney General and the Secretaries of Treasury and State go after cyberattackers "where it really hurts -- at their bottom line."

"The non-Pro Surface 3 starts at $499, £420 or AU$699, and presents itself as very similar to the Surface Pro 3, just with a few budget-minded tweaks. It has an adjustable kickstand, although rather than the fully adjustable version in the Pro 3 or the two-angle one in the older Surface 2, the Surface 3 kickstand snaps between three different angles.
The touchscreen has a 1,920x1,080 native resolution, which is more than enough for a 10.8-inch display such as this. The 12.5-inch Pro 3 has a 2,160x1,440 resolution, and both screens have a 3:2 aspect ratio, which makes them feel more like writing on a pad of paper when held in portrait mode (a sold-separately stylus runs $49, £45 or AU$69).
Like every previous Surface, you'll want the optional keyboard cover. With large backlit keys packed into a very slim cover, and connecting via a magnetic hinge, it's the cleverest bit of engineering about the Surface line. Unfortunately, as with the previous models, the add-on keyboard costs a hefty $129, £110 or AU$180 (but comes in a variety of colors). And, as the Surface 3 is a different size than the older models, you'll need the new keyboard cover made specifically for this unit."
"Like people including Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk have predicted, I agree that the future is scary and very bad for people. If we build these devices to take care of everything for us, eventually they'll think faster than us and they'll get rid of the slow humans to run companies more efficiently," Wozniak said. "Will we be the gods? Will we be the family pets? Or will we be ants that get stepped on?"

"Glenn Ford was imprisoned nearly half his life for a murder he didn't commit. Now, the 65-year-old has been denied restitution for his nearly 30 years on Louisiana's death row.
Caddo Parish District Judge Katherine Dorroh on Friday denied Ford compensation, saying that while Ford did not commit the murder that led to his wrongful imprisonment, he was "proven to be guilty of lesser crimes and was not an innocent man." The judge said Ford knew about plans for the robbery that led to the killing and didn't stop it. Further, he attempted to destroy evidence by pawning items taken in the robbery and tried to find buyers for the murder weapon used by men Ford implicated in the murder."

"Many industry insiders laughed at Microsoft when they released the Surface Pro in February of 2013 and advertised it as a tablet/laptop hybrid. A lot thought the unit was too heavy and the battery life was too dismal. Microsoft has obviously listened to the criticism and has ushered in a new era of laptop/tablet hybrids."
