So, I went ahead and sprung for the Keyboard Book Cover for my new Tab S4. Other than the numeric keys being narrower than the letter keys and winding up offset to the point where, as a touch-typist, I have a hard time with them, it's decent.

I really wish the screen-of...

I recently purchased the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 as an upgrade from a smaller Android tablet, the AT&T Trek 2. I liked the Trek but was looking for a larger screen and a pen-based experience.

Now that I'm running the RTM of Windows 8 on my dev machine, I can get back to writing my first app. I want to make sure it works on Windows RT, so I'll be testing on my Surface.

The first step is to install the ARM version of the remote debugging tools (from here) on t...

A final follow-up on my piece here. There I was, minding my own business earlier this evening when, as I was peeking at my phone, I noticed an update message! A total of 5 (yeah, 5!) updates were pushed to my Samsung Focus S phone, including one Samsung update and four...
